Post all Meltdowns From your Facebook News Feed, TV Media, Twitter Accounts......anything you come across. This will make it easier to see reactions years from now.

Considering the awful things he will do to this country, yes it seems pretty bad to want that to happen just to see how Gaf will react.

Great idea for a thread. Kudos.

Some guy from Facebook who considers himself a Libertarian:

You liberals are going to be really rustled when Romney wins tomorrow. All your lies and stereotypes got you nowhere. That's politics in America, who can out bullshit the other. It reflects into the citizens as well. Regardless of the outcome, I hope you are proud we are separated by an illusion of choice. Just know you are promoting archaism and have created the social classes you want to break down. Maybe if we started seeing it as how we are similar, instead of trying to differentiate ourselves from each other; we could live in a more peaceful and understanding world. Though, whats the point. Half of you are as lost as your cause.

Is he bracing against disappointment? Why would a libertarian eschew liberalism anyway?

Yeah, I kind of agree, actually. I want Obama to win, but a Romney win would be so much more...interesting, for better and for worse. Mostly worse.

I don't really have a dog in the fight, and Romney is going to win my state (Georgia) anyways so I probably won't even vote. Honestly I don't know enough about either candidate's policies to make an educated decision in the first place, so I'd feel kind of bad voting.

But really I'm not rooting for either, though the meltdown would be funny.

If you look at the polls, Obama has a fairly strong chance for victory. He's leading in Ohio, and has enough states locked down to get him the necessary electoral votes. But of course, everything's just a prediction until tomorrow.
If you want a quick primer on who to vote for, look up some debate summaries on YouTube. That should give you an idea where they stand.

I disagree. If anything I think it's more amazing how some amount of trust in politicians still exists. Although I see that trust decreasing in more and more countries.

Yes, you should feel bad to wish meltdowns on your fellow GAF'ers.

FOX News and Republican Meltdowns would be infinitely more satisfying.

As a Non-American college student I kinda wanna see Romney win just to see the meltdowns as well. I mean pretty much every site I visit is pro-Obama in a big way, all my college friends are pro Obama (ya know, us liberal college kids) etc.

The truth is, I'd even personally kind of love Obama to lose. Having said that, it'd be a really bad joke on you American guys if Romney won. If only there was third candidate, or if the republicans haven't chose Romney.

Let's take a look...

Those are just the riot threats posted today (Friday November 2nd). It is reasonable to assume that hundreds more were posted prior to today — all of them ignored by a complacent, biased mainstream media.

Interestingly, the threats made today were posted exclusively by supporters of President Obama. We weren’t able to find even one Republican threatening to riot if Mitt Romney loses.

Uh, what? Biased media? As in... going out and hand-picking twitter posts that serve your agenda? No way!

I gotta say, though, those Obama supporters, they sure are violent! It's in their ideals, like advocating war and hating the little guy, right? Right??

Everyone, come, don't be afraid, join Romney's Drum Circle for Peace and Harmony!

From a pure enterainment standpoint, Romney winning is the play here.

Sadly it probably is. But, the people saying stupid things like "I'm not voting for Obama cause he's black" or "I'm rioting if Romney wins" are the same people sending you messages on Halo 4 MP saying "I'm gunna fuck u up n00b!"

Still sad nonetheless.
