Default What will you as a republican do if obama wins

Serious question.
Will you cry, get mad, say oh well?
Cry foul, figure the country is doomed?
Envision hearing late Tuesday or waking up Wednesday after election day to find Barak Hussein Obama has won a second term. How would your day go?

Nothing, because even if he wins I doubt he will have congress. I see that going republican, so he either has to work with the other side of the aisle or nothing gets done again. And we can blame him for that now and if he wins in the future.

Same as it has been - work, pay exorbitnate taxes, have extra work laid on me for the Insurance Mandate, and plan for a future with the possibility of no retirement.

I'm going to pretty much do what every other business owner and corporation will do. I'm going to be surprised we have reached the 50+% of entitlement idiots that think they are owed something actually exists, but this will prove it. Then I'm going to watch as jobs are shed at a high rate of speed due to obamacare and the tax threats. I'm going to watch as more and more homes go to auction for less and less money because cash will be all the matters, then I will purchase and rent some to the new class of homeless. I'm going keep my weapons in good operational condition as I watch the riots of OWS begin to ramp up when the freebies just aren't coming around fast enough. I'm going to watch as a president tries to defy congress to allow him to spend another 2 trillion in stimulus (it will come by April). I will watch the likes of you stomping their feet that congress just won't let obama spend and that is all that's keeping us from prosperity, and the rich of course will be the focus. I will sit back and watch as QE4,5,6 and 7 go into effect and the dollar starts to crap out and inflation skyrockets.

Basically I'm going to sit back and watch your version of paradise come to fruition. The best part is you will get to watch it too.

I'm not Republican but I will be watching as Republicans all over the country whine and cry for a week or two, then once the new Democrat Controlled house and Senate convene in jan Second Term President Obama will be able to push his own policies through and finally put this country back on a course to prosperity. Then Bill Clinton will begin tour Titled " the I told You so now get ready for Hillary in 2016 tour"... and everything will go back to being normal. The Rich will get richer, the poor will get less poor and the Middle class will come back with a vengeance and then after 4 more years the Republican party will fold because they won't be able to get elected to Dog Catcher...

Ok that last part was a wish.. but you get the Idea...........

Convert most of my assets into silver as gold will become so expensive, it will be hard to barter with it. Buy more guns and lots more ammunition. Make sure I have a rugged 4 wheel drive vehicle available to head for the mountains when the riots start towards the end of Obama's second term.

I'm not a Republican either but if Obama wins I wont despair. I actually believe this nation is better off than it was four years ago! In my area,jobs are plentiful for all who have the right skill set. New homes are being built all around me and my rental business is much more profitable than it was four years ago. The stores in my area are crowded,every checkout lane is 20 deep. I have more expendable cash than I had four years ago. New cars on the road are a common sight.

"When President Obama took office in January 2009, the economy was shedding 800,000 jobs per month. Stop for a second and read that again: 800,000 jobs lost per month. The economy has now added private sector jobs for 29 months running."

"As Time's Michael Grunwald points out the economy shrank by an annual rate of 8.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008. At that rate, Grunwald writes, "we would have shed the entire Canadian economy in 2009." Grunwald, who has written a book on Obama's stimulus, goes on to make a pretty good thumbnail case about why that jobs plan did in fact work, as well as generally why Obama and his advocates have a lot to be proud of—the post is worth a read."

"If the GOP wants to ask whether the country is better off than it was four years ago, then the answer is a no-brainer yes, and I can't think of a better person or place to give that answer than Barack Obama on Thursday night."

Are things "fantastic"? No...but they have improved and the R's focusing on the question Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago do so at their own peril.

Though I have disappointments in the President,a man I helped put in office and will not vote for again unless he can work a few miracles between now and Nov,my vote belongs to Gary Johnson.And yet,it wouldn't be the end of the world if Obama won a second term and all who are greatly disappointed have the option of moving to Canada..

The country probably will be doomed. The sad day will have come when there are more parasites than producers.

Oh, we'll try to save the serfs from themselves, but remember I'm a history buff with a very long outlook. Two centuries has been a pretty good run for a Republic.

Sadly though, with modern and future tech, you'll probably never see anything you'd recognize as a "free country" rise again. That's because such revolutionary thinking will always be snuffed out before it has time to mature, you see. We could execute a revolution because Great Britain at the time was far away in time as well as distance.

If Obama wins, I'll stay in Alaska, and watch with little surprise while you tear down what your ethical, political, and patriotic betters gave you. And I'll listen when you wail that you don't understand what happened. As long as your allowed to wail, of course.

Mind you, this probably won't all happen in a second Obama term, but I think that the Republic will have passed the point of no return, like so many other great nations in the past.
