Nov 2nd!!!! It can't come any sooner! I am so sick of these advertisements on TV, esp. the ones on MTV that interupt your program. I am also veryyyyyyyyyy tired of posts on a.net bashing each of the canidates and each other. I would have to admit some of these threads sound like a bunch of two year olds fighting. Can't wait till the election is OVER!

In Ohio we are bombarded nonstop since we're considered critical to the election this year. I'm sick of false claims, half-truths, irrelevant issues, all the personal slamming and all the other garbage that has marred this campaign, IMO.
Yes, I'm voting, I would never miss that...but PLEASE, enough already!!!
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

I totally agree. I like politics and all, and I'm really interested about this particular election...but definitely, I am going to be glad when all the people yelling back and forth saying "you're stupid for supporting Bush" or "you're stupid for supporting Kerry"...and all the commercials bashing each other and blah blah blah blah...it's twice as bad for me, because out here at school, I get stations from Kansas AND Missouri...AHHHHHHH twice the horror!

MTV has a program?
And to get back on topic: yes, I have to agree, although I fear that there will be legal wranglings for several weeks regarding supposed or real irregularities surrounding the voting process, regardless of who wins on Nov 2.

Not to forget the fervent bashing that will be done by the fans of the winning candidate, that will last for at least 2 years, to be replaced then by the usual bashing threads concerning the upcoming elections 2008.
Besides we have the usual USA vs. Europe threads that will certainly not die away after November 2nd, the whining threads of the fans of the candidate that doesn't make it to the White House, not to forget to threads where we learn about the political orientation of several, mostly American A.net members, sounding approximately like this: Well I am a halfway liberal compassionate conservative, though socially aware, with a slight hint of green, fiscally rather right-wing, throw in some points for independence, a nice healthy dose of leftism to impress girls blablabla...
Will anything change here after November 2nd? Afraid not, but as we say in Germany: Hope dies last!

Of COURSE whoever backed the winning side is going to rub it in the faces of the losing side. This is:
1) basic human nature
2) America where you are nobody unless you have SOMETHING to brag about, and
3) This race is so high stakes and has escalated so far into a "let's see who can be the bigger assholes" contest being waged by both sides that bragging rights would be an entitlement to the winner.
