People are staking claim for there candidates, predictions being made, polls released.

Typical rhetoric of vote for me or the world is going to crumble.

I don't think anything will change regardless of the results, which is why its hard for me to get excited.

After years of this crap, most people don't get it and are still suckered in that this is the year where things change.

Its all bs.

My main reason for interest is profit and I like making predictions and analyzing polls.

I can separate the two and come to the conclusion that nothing will change regardless of who wins senate, house, presidency in 2k12.

I hope you are wrong: of course many things will not change, it takes years to make change as you know, but I do think the elected president and the elected congress can make a difference.

The biggest debt in the history of the world does not fix itself. You, yourself, might be able to kick back and relax, but if things are fixed, you can thank those who remain extremely active in making sure the tough issues aren't ignored. None of this will happen on its own.

Fear mongering exists regardless, and I understand where you have become comfortably numb in your views. The issues are a bit different now, because we are seeing more economic issues, than the majority of living have seen before in their lifetimes. People are feeling it, and the few who haven't felt the squeeze, might not believe that it exists.

The next election will be by far the most important of my lifetime, and I'm older than dirt..!
If we don't get rid of the filth in the WH I don't think this nation can survive. I don't want to live in Cuba and if obama is reelected that is exactly where we will end up.
The chances of a second term for obama grow slimmer everyday, which is the best news America could hope for...
