Whether Romney Wins or Not: A Divided America

Posted on Nov 5 2012 - 5:03pm by Harrison

Election 2012.  No matter which candidate wins there are going to be cries of voter fraud, voter suppression, and dirty tricks… most likely in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and regarding absentee ballots for the military.  Both sides are mounting their horses and preparing for battle.

My gut tells me Romney is going to win… but what do I know?

If Obama wins I can only hope the Republicans do well enough in Congressional races to shut him down.  If Romney wins I can only hope Democrats do poorly in Congressional races so they cannot shut him down.

Either way I predict it’ll be a long night and we’ll be a restless nation.

    Unfortunately, you are probably correct. Even if Mitt Romney wins, it will take no small amount of time to heal the divisions he has caused.

    America will still be sharply divided after this race is over, but if Romney wins and really does begin to turn things around perhaps he can win some people over. At least Romney is talking about brining people together while Obama is still trying to divide us in the last days.
    You are right about the fraud; whichever side loses is going to blame it on fraud because neither side wants to admit their ideas were rejected.

    Well it seems America has woken up and people are rushing to the polls. America wants to be heard, without the media or the politicians muting our voices.

    Romney has actually done a great job campaigning, by staying under the media radar. I predict what the media isn’t predicting; Romney will win!

      I hope ypu are right on the win… in the mid-300s.

    Sorry, I was wrong! At least Romney is holding the popular vote.

      The Supreme Court nominations are the real win for his side.
