    Can we all just agree...

    that no matter how close it ends tomorrow night we won't be looking for a stupid court battle over a recount that there really isn't a need for? The absolute last thing we need is to head into the next four years after spending 6 weeks in the courts arguing over stupidity. When it goes official tomorrow, that's it we have a President.

    So can we all agree that's what we want?
    COMING SOON...

    Of course.

    I just don't see a clean and quick decision.

    I don't want to see an early call...I really despise the media declaring a winner while polls are still open.

    Re: Can we all just agree...

    Again NO!
    And here's just one reason:


    Columbus Free Press Editor and Publisher Files Suit in Federal Court to Stop Suspicious Software


    At 9am Election Day, a federal judge will decide whether untested and uncertified secret software will remain on Ohio’s vote tabulation and reporting systems in 39 counties. Bob Fitrakis, in his capacity as the Chair of the Ohio Green Party, filed suit at approximately 12:30pm on Monday, November 5 against Ohio Secretary of State John Husted and Elections Systems and Solutions for their clandestine installation of uncertified and untested software. Judge Frost, U.S. District Court Southern District Court of Ohio, agreed to the hearing to be held Tuesday, November 6.

    The suit seeks immediate the injunctive relief of removing the untested, uncertified software from all county tabulators.

    Should there be insufficient time or resources to remove said software from the tabulators, those tabulators will not be used and all ballots will be counted by hand if either the state or federal judge grants the injunction.

    The Columbus Free Press’ investigation has discovered that the office of the Secretary of State has, at the last minute, contracted for special untested reporting software. Brandi Seske, Elections Council to John Husted, has penned legal memos justifying the skirting of federal and state elections law.

    Since this story broke, the spokesman for the Secretary of State's office, Mathew McClellan, has made false and contradictory statements to the press about the nature of the software and its legality.

    Of course it doesn't, so why does your party engage in it?

    That's definitely what I want.

    I'm afraid it's wishful thinking. Both sides think the other side winning is the harbinger of the Apocalypse (or at least the end of the USA as we know it), so I can't see either side giving up easily if they have any remotely almost reasonably sort-of plausible claim that they may have won.

    There should be a moratorium until all polls are closed!

    Re: Can we all just agree...

    I agree on how much I dislike them calling the election before all the polls close, it really hurts turnout in western states and kills local electorate results. I dont think we'll have this tonight however, states as far West as Nevada are in play and could matter so I dont think anybody is getting a call before the West Coast polls close at 10pm est.

    Re: Can we all just agree...

    I agree that I don't want a long drawn out court battle. I also want the country to heal, for the economy to get better and for jobs to become more plentiful. But I don't think those things will happen. I can hope though.
