    6 days to go, and I'm really starting to think that it's gonna be tough for Romney to win.

    I'm afraid of what's going to happen if Obama wins a 2nd term. As it is, my insurance for next year is about 65% higher next year compared to this year, plus our anticipated income for next year is down about $5000 from what it should be.

    I'm anxious, maybe in an excited nervous kind of way. Amazing how contentious American politics have become. I have no idea who will win, because its so close, but either way, there will be A LOT of really pissed off people after election day.

    A little nervous. I worry about many on the right being too dumb to understand the consequences of voting for some third party nut to "teach the Republicans a lesson." (that lesson being that you can get a Democrat elected every time by using the power of the media to divide the right)

    Not really. The sun will still rise the following day. The kids will have to get ready for school and catch the bus, and me and the wife will go to work.

    There's just some things in life that aren't worth worrying about, since you're powerless to control it.

    It is what it is.

    Not worried at all. I believe Romney will win by a decent margin.

    It's all been determined by the corporate masters... the tension you feel, that's been created through the illusion of choice and debates.

    It isn't about teaching the Republicans or Democrats a lesson, it's about being sick and tired of their BS and wanting REAL change that is in line with the Constitutional values of this nation. It's about being TRUE to ones values and beliefs and not bending to the will of the masses just because we CHOOSE to be free in our thoughts, actions and choices.

    You can continue to be a slave to the illusion you are in you or you can step out and see with clearer eyes that it doesn't matter which of the two evils you have been coerced into voting for wins, nothing will significantly change for the better and we will continue off the cliff of failure regardless. To believe otherwise tells me you have consumed much of the kool-aid proffered by your "choice".

    We are not powerless, the problem is people are too blinded by bling and lazy to step up and do what's right and fearful to leave their comfort zone for a real possible change.

    What? "Become" nothing. They've always been that way. It goes back to Jefferson vs Adams. Andrew Jackson had his mother called a prostitute, and wife was called a whore.

    What's there to be nervous about? The status quo will continue. Neither candidate will fight for cuts or the complete abolition of the Ponzi scheme entitlement programs that have bankrupted us, and the debt will grow until the day we can no longer kick the can down the road. Trying to choose between Obama or Romney is like trying to pick up the clean end of a turd.

    Turn CT RED!

    Vote. Talk to your neighbors. I know its an uphill battle in CT. But miracles do happen. Accepting the status quo is defeat. ONe of the reason blue states like yours stay blue. Don't be discouraged. Vote and put some english on it!

    It's not as bad this time as 2008 because nobody is predicting the house will go back to a democrap majority.

    I'm nervous in the fact that if it's true, that non-citizens are being ferried by the bus load to the elections, and actually voting for obama, then Romney might have issues winning. But, if it's not true, then he shouldn't have any issues winning, hopefully. But, you never really know what the outcome will be until it's over.

    Show me as one of the "third party nuts" you're referencing in your post. I can only hope the Senate and House go Pub, and Obama gets elected as Prez. Nothing gets done, and I'm good with them (the Congress) doing absolutely nothing. In fact, I'd prefer they all just go on a permanent vacation until their terms are up.

    I'd rather Obammy get elected now, it'll set the tone for the downfall and we can hit the reset button sooner than if Romney were elected.

    Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

    No, I already know the results; a Goldman Sachs liberal is going to get elected.
