    I find it hilarious you folks associate yourself with candidates like you are in some way on the same team, related or they actually care about you and aren't just going to do what the big money backers tell them to do.

    Obama or Romney ? Either one is a vote for authoritarian anti constitutional government and big war and debt. So if those are your things... vote for them. Otherwise, vote for a party that actually represents your beliefs... unless you believe in the things I outlined of course.

    PS: Abortion, religion and all those other side issues are only used to upset you and get you fighting amongst one another.

    Cap federal salaries at 30k a year and one sure result would be that bribery and kickbacks would skyrocket.

    If you legalized all the vices that are currently illegal, it would be much more difficult to come up with kickback money.

    Any takers? Wanna make it interesting?

    I'm an Obama supporter, but I suspect that Intrade has a better take on the election than you (or me or any other individual).

    It's also 6/10 for Obama not being elected....the key is to line up the suckers on one side to pay the winners like Vegas does...

    It very well could be, based on how they distorted, err, significantly weighted the results based on unknown reasons:



    Based on the actual results, it should have been 48/47 Obama. They warped it to 53/41 for their gen pop poll. They didn't release detailed results, but it looks like they did exactly the same thing to the registered voters poll.

    Yup. The $174k salary now is a problem, since most Reps can't afford to have a home both in their home state and live in DC during sessions. So, they tend to move to DC and lose the local influence that they should be getting back home.

    Gallup - 48-43 Romney - http://www.gallup.com/poll/150743/Obama-Romney.aspx

    No demo's, so no idea how accurate.
