It's NOT Over Until President Obama is INAUGURATED.

Please, make that your mantra and your intention. And vote early if you can.

I'm going to go all woo-woo here and mention that mercury goes retrograde on election day. In the world of woo, that is the curse of all communications, electronic and otherwise.

There was another election day when mercury turned retrograde. Back in 2000. And we all know how that sElection turned out

Don't get mad. Get even. It's time to right that wrong, and this is the time to do it.

3. Its going to be a landslide. Its over.

With early voting. I bet the race will be over before the polls close in CA on election day. Romney is done and cooked. 4 more years for President Obama and Joe.

4. I don't want us to just beat Rmoney

I want Democrats to publicly humiliate Rmoney.

I'll celebrate after the inauguration.

8. I didn't find the results of 2000 to be bullshit. Or rather, I found the inauguration

of W to be bullshit.

You're welcome to find the woo bs. I honestly don't care.

But I do think it is important to approach this election with the intention of ensuring that those trying to suppress the vote, those throwing out registration forms and ballots, and a RW supreme court with a bad history accept and respect the law with regard to elections.

And that we not approach the possibility with fear; but that we approach the election process with intent. With determination. With the understanding that until President Obama is inaugurated, it isn't over.

7. I did some checking on what happens if the winner of the election dies before electors meet.

If the winner dies before the Electoral College meets the electors can elect whomever they want. If the President Elect dies before inauguration then the Vice President can be inaugurated. There is definitely a time frame in there with potential chaos.
