The Election Will Not Be Close
American Thinker, by Monty Pelerin

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/5/2012 7:45:13 AM

The election is tomorrow. The entire buildup to this point has been somewhat surreal. The pollsters tell us that the election is too close to call, but that does not conform with reality.(snip)My eyes tell me things either that pollsters cannot see or that people are unwilling to tell them. Here are a few of them: • The country is stuck in a recession which Obama has made worse. After four years, he has no plan to remedy matters.

Thank you - I have been believing this for over a month now.

Here in OH, we only had to flip 3%. McCain voters all stay and vote for Romney - but Barry is losing some Jewish voters - losing some women, losing many white males, losing some young people, and more in his base are unenthused and will stay home while most Republicans that stayed home 4 yrs. ago will come out for Romney.

That has got to be way more than the 3% we needed.

Wisconsin is cautiously optimistic! We are on our knees praying our Republican voters come out in mass. We take nothing for granted. We don't vote for revenge, we vote for the love of our country and the beautiful freedom we exercise.

Anyone who is following the Ambassador and his staff's death should have no doubt for whom to cast your vote.

I agree. And I look forward to watching heads exploding on MSNBC. In fact, I intend to watch the entire election night on MSNBC rather than Fox specifically for the joy of seeing those loons go nutso. The Chris Matthews spittle-fest alone should be epic.

One has to give the Kneepad media the credit it is due. Without them, there is no way anyone in their right mind would think this will be a close election. Now the key is will we win the Senate. We need enough Rebublicans in the Senate to use budget reconciliation to overturn Obambicare.

Come on Mass, Indiana, Virginia, Florida and Missouri

We are sure that the Dems and Zero will agree with the Communists who advised that, it is not the votes which are important - it is who counts them!

I don’t know anything about anything, but I really do not believe there are enough people in this country that want 4 more years of this disaster to make it close. I do believe it will be a Romney landslide even with the massive voter fraud from the dems. But vote, and make sure.

I disagree with the author on one point: the electorate, ever since the first debate when they had a chance to see beyond the attack ads, have come around and are now voting for Romney, not just against Obama.

I wonder how many people who came out to vote for the first time ever in 2008 because they were "inspired" by Obama will sit home, disillusioned, and plan to never vote again.

There is a flood of extremely negative advertising coming directly from the Zer0 campaign out here in California. Dark and demagogic. Misleading and frightening. Expensive.
A lot of money to be spending in a "secure" Demo state.

I agree with the arguments in this article. Things he didn't mention are all the unusual elections in 2010, Brown in Kennedy's seat, Wisconsin standing up to organized civil service labour etc where the electorate has tried to stop Obama by proxy. This is the first time they can stop him directly. We will need a landslide because election day is only the start of the effort needed to boot Obama out of office.

For those of you worrying about the "close" election, here's a bit of advice for you:

1) STOP reading and watching the news (yes, even Lucianne),

2) Go to hillbuzz.org and read all the positive, uplifting, confident reports there, and

3) STOP spreading your fear among our ranks--all you're doing is helping the enemy (think of it as making donations to Bathhouse Barry cause you're not helping yourself; you're just demoralizing the rest of us)!!

No one who reads this board will miss the vote.
Based on early news stories of voting irregularities', NAACP 'take-overs' of polling places and military ballot issues, I'm very worried about fraud.
We may be gathering here in December waiting for a decision on the winner.

Do the news outlets know something we don't?

Intellectually I know Obama is done. The crowd sizes for Romney are growing. Mitt isn't just the anti-obama now. He's the future leader of the Western World. In spite of Axelrod and Plouffe's $900M campaign to paint Romney as a greedy pig, he's shown himself a man of high integrity, a big heart, and enormous competence.

Emotionally, I'm in fight and survive mode. The Eisenhower-led nation I grew up in, where trust in our leaders was automatic, love of country was unconditional, and optimism was easy as pie is now facing an enemy far worse than the Nazis and Imperial Japanese that threatened my parents. Tomorrow is the day when our country will chose liberty or tyranny and it is scarey.

Here is the pollsters' problem: Less than 10% of us answer the phone anymore. In our case, we have an intelligent home phone system that tells us who is calling and we do not pick up the phone unless we want to.

There is no way in which the 10% of late adopters of this cheap and effective technology can be representative of the rest of us. So the one thing we can be sure of is that the polls are going to turn out to be very wrong.

Dittos to #20's comments. We don't pick up our phone when we don't see the caller identified, or if it is a "blocked" or toll-free number.

FTA: "But don't get too cocky. Rasmussen, whom I think is the best pollster in the lot, has yet to provide definitive numbers."

I won't make any predictions. I'll believe Romney has won when I see it in the headlines of every newspaper. I still believe that 0bama could be reelected, because the Democrats and the unions will try anything to steal votes wherever they can. And believe me, there are still many people who think 0bama has done a good job. They got their "0bama mortgages" (like three of our neighbors), and there is no way they will break away from their messiah.

I have said this a month. He just outlines it so well. In 2008 the states were close. The independents and new young voters made the difference. Not happening this time. How could this election possibly be so close when every group for Obama has dropped by such percentages?

And I hope everyone will go have a Chick-Fil-A sandwich after they vote tomorrow.

Posts about phones not being answered are so true. Rush said conservatives don't answer the phone when it's pollsters. And he says there are 24 million evangelicals who no one is talking with or about.

I think I'll watch MSNBC tomorrow night too, just for the entertainment value.

#2, remember that some WI polls showed the Scott Walker recall as "neck and neck."

Then Gov Walker went on to win by 6 or 7 percentage points.

He did this even after an in-pouring of an unprecedented amount of out-of-state $, a display of thuggery by the unions, and the help of the MSM.

This has all the markings of the 1980 election. Then the media also had it too close to call. Reagan went on to be called the next president by 80 in the evening in a landslide even before they closed voting in the western states. It looks and feels that we have a redux of 1980.

In the '08 election a significant number of Republicans swallowed the "hope and change" snake oil and voted for 0bama. That didn't happen in '10 and won't happen this time. I would not be surprised to see a significant number of Democrats vote for Romney or just stay home.

PLEASE also to those who still think an Obama second term is what is needed for this country, need to be advised of an article on this site, about Obama signing a new Exec order, Setting up the "Civilian Corps", without Congressional approval or direction !!

This will be the second term agenda. The TAKEOVER of the USA and a setting up of the Dictator Obama !!

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
