"State Dismissed" - The Hourly Guide To Tonight's Electoral College Closing Times

Tyler Durden's picture




 

T minus 7 hours. That is how long until both all important Florida and Ohio polls close. As previously explained, whoever gets these two states will almost certainly carry the election, which means that by 8pm Eastern, the marginal votes will be in, and shortly thereafter one after another media organization and network will begin calling both these two states, and the election, for either the Democrats or the GOP (at which point the litigation and recount demands can begin). The complete guide to the closing times of the polls in assorted East to West states, together with their respective seats in the electoral college, is shown below, although it is likely that long before California polling is even concluded the next president will already be known.

I want to address something that people say a lot when I suggest to them that they vote for third party candidate. This shit drives me nuts.

” I don’t want to waste my vote so I’m going to vote for the guy that’s not as bad as the other guy.”

Newsflash to you dude, you suck. This kind of thinking is there reason why america is in such deep shit right now. Our political leaders have been getting shittier and shittier for years and years and Americans have been too lazy to hold them accountable or even to actually expect half way decent governments from these so called “leaders”.

Voting for the “lesser of two evils” is repugnant, intellectually lazy, stupid and morally decrepit. The whole point of democracy and voting in the first place is to demand a candidate you believe in. If anything is wasting a vote it’s voting for someone you term as “the lesser of two evils”. How about a new rule: “Don’t vote for evil, dumbasses!”

So let’s get to our endorsement: No honest, intelligent, sane person can say with a straight face that Gary Johnson doesn’t make more sense than the two clowns Obama and Romney given the current situation in the US.

Hell, I cannot even vote. My precint in Northern Kentucky ran out of ballots! 3000+ registered voters and they only sent 500 ballots. It happens to be a heavily republican rural area of Kenton county. No problems in the urban, northern half of the county, only here. Mind you, Kentucky is run by a democrat administration. Corrupt? Naaah... They say I can come back in a few hours. You cannot make this s$@t up. The good news is the local tv station (wlwt) gave me a few minutes air time to spout off.

And then if things are not to your satisfaction, you file a protest with the local voting board and be as loud as you need to be in order to get your voice heard.

I just got back from voting (NY, Manhattan 90th).  l voted for Gary Johnson and for every possible candidate who was neither Republican or Democrat.  

HOWEVER, several races were rigged for example;  there were 4 candidates for state supreme court justice, you had to vote for 4, ALL 4 were Democrats.  A little further down the ballot, there were 2 candidates for state appellate court justice, you had to vote for one but, on closer inspection, BOTH candidates Rebublican and Democrat were the SAME DAMN PERSON!  Geez, I mean you literally had NO choice at all..

The American Civil War (1861–1865), in the United States often referred to as simply the Civil War and sometimes called the "War Between the States"

A civil war implies two factions are battling for control of the whole.  The war between the states was nothing of the sort.

The "free and independent states" (borrowing the phrase from the Declaration of Independence) joined together VOLUNTARILY and, as was widely recognized and accepted, had the right to peacefully secede.  That is, it was widely recognized before the worst president (at least up until Wilson) wouldn't let the South secede.

As the President of the Confederacy (elected 151 years ago today) said it: "All we ask is to be let alone."  -- Jefferson Davis

But history, as we all know, is written by the victors.

Oh, and while I'm standing on my soap box, for those who think Lincoln was opposed to slavery, you ought to learn some history (or unlearn the public education version).

You understand that American Libertarians are small goverment Republicans.

Fuck dude you want the Anarchists. Those are the real free market deal.

http://www.aynrand.org/site/PageServer?pagename=education_campus_liberta...

 

Q: What do you think of the Libertarian movement? [FHF: “The Moratorium on Brains,” 1971]

AR: All kinds of people today call themselves “libertarians,” especially something calling itself the New Right, which consists of hippies, except that they’re anarchists instead of collectivists. But of course, anarchists are collectivists. Capitalism is the one system that requires absolute objective law, yet they want to combine capitalism and anarchism. That is worse than anything the New Left has proposed. It’s a mockery of philosophy and ideology. They sling slogans and try to ride on two bandwagons. They want to be hippies, but don’t want to preach collectivism, because those jobs are already taken. But anarchism is a logical outgrowth of the anti-intellectual side of collectivism. I could deal with a Marxist with a greater chance of reaching some kind of understanding, and with much greater respect. The anarchist is the scum of the intellectual world of the left, which has given them up. So the right picks up another leftist discard. That’s the Libertarian movement.

Q: What do you think of the Libertarian Party? [FHF: “A Nation’s Unity,” 1972]

AR: I’d rather vote for Bob Hope, the Marx Brothers, or Jerry Lewis. I don’t think they’re as funny as Professor Hospers and the Libertarian Party. If, at a time like this, John Hospers takes ten votes away from Nixon (which I doubt he’ll do), it would be a moral crime. I don’t care about Nixon, and I care even less about Hospers. But this is no time to engage in publicity seeking, which all these crank political parties are doing. If you want to spread your ideas, do it through education. But don’t run for President—or even dogcatcher—if you’re going to help McGovern.

Ayn Rand was really speaking of the individuals making up the young libertarian movement at the time.  There certainly is still a contingent of unfocused anarchists in the Libertarian Party (along with a lot of useless politi-dorks) that Rand would no doubt continue to abhor, but for the most part the LP today is more of a Constitutionalist party than anything, with increasingly reasonable alternative liberty-oriented solutions to the problems that face the country, many of which I don't believe she would pose such vociferous objection to.

Unfortunately in real life scenarios where there is actual anarchy, there is a lot of "everyone else" that has no problem establishing their own "authority" on others using guns and machetes.  The actual implementation of anarchistic philosophy of any kind wherein the government is eliminated while the individual is spontaneously protected via the good will of fellow anarchists of kindred intellect becomes enough of a contradiction that it becomes difficult to entertain apart from a speculative thought experiment that quickly devolves into the sociology and psychology of a chaotic population moreso than any coherent philosophy.

Sorry, dude, but your compound subject is wrong. Democracy, as she is practiced today, is one bunch of oligarchs offering other people's money to the masses in order to gain power over them. That the oligarchs claim to represent two separate parties is just part of the charade.

Anytime anyone with a pulse can vote, you're in trouble. Unless and until you restrict suffrage to those who have some skin in the game (whether it's property, service to your country, paying a certain amount of income tax - it's been debated here before - is immaterial to me)  That's what a "republic" means. Just stop all those "Obamaphone" freeloaders from voting, and things would get better in a hurry.

I am at peace with the out come of this election because I understand that the outcome doesnt matter.  The winner tonight will not be able to prevent the inevitable.

Once I abandoned that false hope that Superman Mitt or Superman Obama cant save me, and that only I can save myself and my family, I have felt liberated and calm.

Many people, roughly half the country, will be very upset tonight when their superman loses.  To them I say: fuck you for expecting other people to solve your problems you fucking losers.

Exact same thoughts here.

I hope Colorado goes for Mitt b/c of the marijiuana vote and thus Obama loses his relection because of his lies regarding medical marijiuana. Choomer Doomer

But, even if he is re-elected, same bad shit sitting in the pipeline as is for Mittens.

all the sheep voting for Obama are voting simply because they want a "change" just like the last election. I mean how stupid are these people? What's even worse is that the media is shoving a candidate down the public's throat. Fucking bruce springsteen and Jay-z and some other complete fucking idiots who know nothing support this tyrant, so then does the public! The republican party is a complete disgrace to what they did to Ron Paul, they are just as bad as the liberals IMO. The only leadership and control in this country belong to BANKS and CORPORATIONS, nothing else. Who do you think writes law? Welcome to Amerika :/

At least I can say that I tried. By supporting someone good, at least I can push for what is in my interest, even if my guy loses. You have to start somewhere to take this country back. Not voting is being the ultimate sheep. You gave up with nary a protest and deserve what you get. Voting is the ONLY way to hold the .gov accountable. All of you who don't make the effort should just shut up and stop opining since you did not do so where it really mattered. My guy is Thomas Massie for congress- got to take it one seat at a time...

Awwww, maybe since voting is so important we should mandate that every citizen must vote?

Or they may just pay a tax,er, fine if they do not vote for one of the approved candidates.

Of course you illustrated it perfectly, YOUR congressman or candidate is a swell guy, but you gotta throw out all the other bums.

It is NEVER your guy, always Harry Reid, or Nancy Pelosi, or The tanfastic guy, etc.

Happens every election, everyone always wants to have everyone else's bum tossed out.

And the beat goes on..................

Good thing is that this system is coming to an end.  A flaw in the math deems it inevitable.

State Reports 104 Voters Not Citizens

SANTA FE (KRQE) - More than 100 noncitizens may have registered to vote over the last eight years, and of those 19 may have actually cast ballots, according to a report released Thursday by the Secretary of State's office.

Earlier this year, Republican Secretary of State Dianna Durán said she found 37 cases of foreign nationals, including illegal immigrants, who may have cast ballots in New Mexico. That came as she was verifying registrations for people without Social Security numbers who received New Mexico driver's licenses.

"The public record provides critical evidence that noncitizens with and without driver's licenses have registered to vote and that noncitizens have voted in New Mexico elections," Durán told News 13 in March.

A few months later, Durán said she identified 64,000 possible cases of possible voter fraud. She forwarded those to the Department of Public Safety for review.

It doesn't matter what Corporate Controlled Government News Agency you watch tonight to get the election results. They all get the results from NEP. They'll all be feeding the sheeple the identical PsyOp of "we just got in these results." Remember it's paid actors providing a script "Program" for viewer consumption. Stealing elections since 2000. Now it's a perfected art.

The National Election Pool (NEP) is a consortium of American news organizations formed in 2003 to provide "information on Election Night about the vote count, election analysis and election projections." See NEP's FAQ. Member companies consist of ABC News, the Associated Press, CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News. The organization relies on the Associated Press to perform vote tabulations and contracted with Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International to "make projections and provide exit poll analysis."

The precursor was Voter News Service, which was disbanded in 2003, after controversies over the 2000 and 2002 election results. The NEP plan is largely the suggestion of CNN, which used Edison/Mitofsky as consultants in the past. Mitofsky headed the original pool that preceded VNS.

The organizers of the pool insist that the purpose of their quick collection of exit poll data is not to determine if an election is flawed, but rather to project winners of races. Despite past problems, they note that none of their members has incorrectly called a winner since the current system was put in place. [1] However, to avoid the premature leaking of data, collection is now done in a "Quarantine Room" at an undisclosed location in New York. All participants are stripped of outside communications devices until it's time for information to be released officially.

Some people would argue that it's been know much longer than that........

I'm conflicted this election. Not because I think anything will change much regardless of which assclown wins, but one part of me would like to see Romney win just to wipe the smarmy smirks off the MSM media folks and turn their party in to a funeral, but on the other hand, I think we are so far along the road to something very very bad happening economically I'd rather see Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. in there so he can't deflect the problems away to Bush or actually Reagan. Oh wait....that's the MSM's job isn't it, so he wins no matter.

I kinda want a Romney win so I can see how the tenor of the whining and complaining around here changes.

Will it be months of "it's all Obama's fault!"?  Will there be a brief honeymoon period when most of the bitchers quiet down and wait for him to take office?  Will he immediately be labelled a communist?

It's a fascinating opportunity.

Voting Libertarian got Maria Cantwell, D-WA, into the Senate, the quite good Republican Senator Slade Gorton lost by the exact amount of votes the Libertarian candidate siphoned off from the Republican. Cantwell is hardcore Democrat, in the tradition of Charles Schumer and Barak Obama.

That said demographics is destiny in American politics and as the white percentage of both population and vote goes down each year it is inevitable that the Mexican-South African political parties will be the rule here.

Pat Buchanan wrote a column yesterday that was quite instructive on the subject:

The Supervisor of Elections in my county sent out notices to me(and a few neighbors) that they had used the Property Appraisers records to confirm voting rights and determined that I did not have a residence on my property and I was ineligible to vote. I contacted their office and informed them that there was indeed a house here and this had been my permanent address for more than ten years and per their website, offered a copy of a utility bill or my drivers license to confirm it. I was told no problem, the computer would be corrected. I received a sample ballot a week later. A week after that, a woman from the Property Appraiser's office showed up unannounced, asked some questions about the house and left. About two weeks later my TRIM(property tax) notice arrives and my taxes have jumped nearly 30%. I called the PA's office and asked about the assessment change. I was informed the house was not on the tax rolls and so the valuation changed. I said the house had been here for 10 years, had been permitted and inspected but never CO'd. My property card always showed 2 structures on my property. I was told they would review it. A week later the woman PA who showed up calls and begins ranting about my wanting her to lose her job by lying on the tax rolls. She then threatened me with them going back 10 years and reassessing me for 'missed' taxes or calling the Building Dept.and having them come out and fine me for non-completion. Two weeks later a BD inspector shows up unannounced while I'm grilling lunch for visiting relatives and I told him to leave. Two days later I get a notice that the BD is going to pull my electric from the property and we're now embroiled in a back-n-forth. I took a day to go to the SoE office and chewed the 2nd in command a new one for violating not only their charter but Federal voting laws which state that no person can be denied the right to vote because they don't have a legal residence, ie. a homeless person or non-homeowner, in fact, anyone choosing to do so may use the courthouse address as an address for voter registration. I removed myself from the voter rolls. I refuse to participate in any such system that violates it's own rules whle simultaneously refusing to require an ID for a non-citizen to vote. Signed, too taxed to vote...
