Have you read about Texas wanting to secede as well? I live in Texas and I can't even mention Obama without getting attacked verbally. The majority of the people here are acting like sore losers.
No offense to you personally, it must be disgusting, living among such sub-human filth. The majority have spoken, and we have a major problem with a bunch of dumb fucking hicks believing the best way to compete in a global economy is to teach our children that the earth is a mere 6,000 years old and Jeebus rode on dinosaurs, rather than teaching them science. Also have a major problem with the Mormon practice of systematically raping 12 year-old girls, which is 100% condoned by the Texas legislature. This nation would be better off without Texas and it would be quite entertaining to watch the white trash try to recover from the next hurricane without FEMA. My advice to YOU is to GTFO of that shit hole.
“Romney was stoic as he talked the president, an aide said, but his wife Ann cried. Running mate Paul Ryan seemed genuinely shocked, the adviser said. Ryan’s wife Janna also was shaken and cried softly. “There’s nothing worse than when you think you’re going to win, and you don’t,” said another adviser. “It was like a sucker punch.”—
“I thought witnessing the Great PUMA Tantrum of ‘08 in real time was fun, but it turns out that was just the bagged crudité tray before the grand schadenfreude banquet that is the Colossal Wingnut Bed-Shitting of 2012. Good times!”—Betty Cracker | Balloon Juice
“This year, voting is more than just the core responsibility of citizenship; it is an act of defiance against malicious political forces determined to reduce access to democracy. Millions of ballots on Tuesday — along with those already turned in — will be cast despite the best efforts of Republican officials around the country to prevent them from playing a role in the 2012 election.
Even now, Republicans are assembling teams to intimidate voters at polling places, to demand photo ID where none is required, and to cast doubt on voting machines or counting systems whose results do not go their way.”—
Election Protection is the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition, led by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Through its 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline (1-866-687-8683), smartphone application and other resources, and dedicated team of legal experts and trained volunteers, Election Protection helps all American voters, including traditionally disenfranchised groups, gain access to the polls and overcome obstacles to voting, offering live assistance. The coalition has more than 100 partners at the national, state and local level and is providing voter protection services now through Election Day for all 50 states.
This Voter Registration and Empowerment Hotline is the result of a partnership between the NAACP, the National Urban League and the National Action Network and dozens of media outlets around the country. They system allows callers are able to 1) Request a form to register to vote (until October 9), 2) Find the voting precinct closest to your home, and 3) Leave up to a sixty (60) second message about any problems you’re have trying to vote or observations about the campaigning going on in their neighborhood. The hotline is, in part, a partnership with InfoVoter Technologies, a Philadelphia company specializing in interactive voice systems.
A personal note to my fellow TUMBLRs:
I am signing off now, as I will be spending every second of my free time for the next two days GETTING OUT THE VOTE »
Catch you on the flip side, and if the EPIC FAIL that is The Pundit Class gets you down with their incessant horse race bullshit, remember:
“The Republican leadership in America must produce their birth certificates! Not because I doubt they’re Americans, I just want to make sure they’re not eight-years-old. I mention this because a major talking point on Fox News and hate radio these days is that … it’s time to bring the ‘adults’ back into power, so they can rein in our deficit, defeat terrorism, and focus on America’s real enemy: cleaning ladies in Arizona. But I must protest the premise, because conservatives are the ones who tend to believe in magical ideas, like: America is never wrong; you can defeat terrorism militarily; and lower taxes will somehow fix the deficit. And I’m not even mentioning the stuff about how Jesus used to fly around on a pterodactyl and just hated it when homos ate wedding cake.”—Bill Maher on the Republican Party
“We’ve created 5.4 million new jobs, and this morning we learned companies hired more workers in October than any time in the last 8 months. The American auto industry is back on top. Home values and housing construction is on the rise. We’re less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in the past 20 years. We’ve made real progress, but we’re here today because we know we have more work to do.”—
