55. If things were fair and not corrupted, no

Obama would win handily. But we're not dealing with a fair system, nor one that has not been corrupted with voter suppression and the ability to finagle the outcome with computer tallies that are flipped. And I guess I shouldn't leave out the fact that people are willing to vote AGAINST their best interests when distracted by racism, lies and half truths.

I'm counting on the President and his campaign to get out the word on what he has accomplished and what he intends to do in the next term. Romney has offered very little specifics on what HE and Ryan plan for us. The little bit they have revealed should scare the bejeebers out of anyone in the middle class or poor people or elderly people. In other words, a bunch of us have a target on our backs if Romney/Ryan get elected.

The news coming from the Electoral College projections should give us all hope......but we can't relax and sit back based on this alone. We need to make sure this election is fair and not stolen.
