, , ,

Time for another TBP contest. There are 538 electoral votes up for grabs tonight. You need 270 to become President.

Please provide your guess for the final electoral count tonight.

As a tiebreaker, please provide your guess on the overall popular vote.

The winner of this contest will get an all expenses paid trip to Staten Island and be put up at a 2 star hotel without electricity or heat. As an added bonus, you will receive a FEMA tee shirt made in China that says:

I SURVIVED SUPERSTORM SANDY AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS STUPID TEE SHIRT

Don’t forget – vote early and vote often.

In early results from Towamencin PA, Gary Johnson has racked up 1 vote.

    Is this an election or just a pantomine exercise. I stood in line to first thing. Chatting with a doctor who came here from Paraguay as we waited for the polls to open and I learn we live in the same condo community when we show our ID’s and get issued receipts we must then take to get our ballots. The machine that issues them jams! Not good. We are maybe the 9th and 10th voters and already equipment malfunctions. Poll workers huddle around machine and after a few minutes it spits out our ‘receipts’. We go collect our ballots. Its a lengthy one in Florida this year and it comes in two big hard paper sheets. No chads though, you just fill in the circle for your candidate or vote yes/no on ballot initiatives. I finish mine and take to the lady who runs the machine where the ballots are inserted. Machine says my ballot is invalid and spits it back out. Lady says try again. I do same result. She says try the 2nd ballot paper ( the one that doesn’t have president, senate or congress candidates on it) and machine takes it. Try the first one again and machine again says ‘invalid’.

    I’m told to stand to the side as election workers huddle. I’m told I must go and get a new ballot and fill out a ‘spoiled ballot’ form. I do and hand a woman the portion of my ballot the machine wouldn’t take. Another woman hands me a new ballot. I go and fill it out but then realize I both sections of the ballot so if I cast them I would be voting twice on the second portion of the ballot, the portion the machine had already accepted during my first attempt to submit my ballots.

    More huddling by poll workers. They take the second portion of the ballot and tell me to go and try and insert just the first half. Machine accepts it but its numbers won’t match the other half of my ballot so I have no idea if my vote will count or not or be considered a spoiled ballot and thrown out. Welcome to third world America where the government cannot even hold an election.

    I guess I’ll go with

    Obama: 322
    Romney: 216

    I also think the House will prolly get taken again by the Democrats. The Republicans have lost a lot of ground and a lot of face in pretty key areas around the country in the past 2 years and no matter how much the media feels it needs to pass this off as a tight race, traditional non-tea party republicans spent the better part of the last 2 years face palming every time they turned on the news, and after the past 2 or 3 months of culture war barnstorming and blustery posturing is going to encourage that base to show up to the polls. This is going to be Bush v. Kerry all over again, except the needle will be in the opposite direction.

    Disclosure: I hate all the existing options, including 3rd party from Justice to Constitution, and am sitting up thinking about writing in Aqua-man (he’s not the hero America needs, but it’s the hero she deserves) for all my national level votes so I can nail down the important state ballots we have.

    Tie! 269-269. Obama wins the popular vote 49.9% to 49.8%. Ballots cast for Gary Johnson and write-in votes for Ron Paul account for the other approximate 0.5% (certain bloggers and their cohorts are alleged to be responsible). The Republicans win the House and elect Romney president. Blacks riot in the fashion of Rodney King getting beaten AND the Lakers losing game 7 in the finals on the same night. The Democrats meanwhile win the Senate and elect Biden as Vice President.

    My best guess is Barry 271, Mitt 267 with even more controversy than in 2000, in an election with virtually nothing at stake.

    Gary Johnson will not only become the first Libertarian candidate to break 7 digits, he will get at least 2 million votes. Falls short of the desired 5% percent unfortunately, but not by much, and people do take notice.

    Ron Paul will have several hundred thousand write-ins. If GJ got those writeins instead, he might approach 5 percent.

    Monday Morning

    Peggy Noonan

    We begin with the three words everyone writing about the election must say: Nobody knows anything. Everyone’s guessing. I spent Sunday morning in Washington with journalists and political hands, one of whom said she feels it’s Obama, the rest of whom said they don’t know. I think it’s Romney. I think he’s stealing in “like a thief with good tools,” in Walker Percy’s old words. While everyone is looking at the polls and the storm, Romney’s slipping into the presidency. He’s quietly rising, and he’s been rising for a while.

    Obama and the storm, it was like a wave that lifted him and then moved on, leaving him where he’d been. Parts of Jersey and New York are a cold Katrina. The exact dimensions of the disaster will become clearer when the election is over. One word: infrastructure. Officials knew the storm was coming and everyone knew it would be bad, but the people of the tristate area were not aware, until now, just how vulnerable to deep damage their physical system was. The people in charge of that system are the politicians. Mayor Bloomberg wanted to have the Marathon, to show New York’s spirit. In Staten Island last week they were bitterly calling it “the race through the ruins.” There is a disconnect.

    But to the election. Who knows what to make of the weighting of the polls and the assumptions as to who will vote? Who knows the depth and breadth of each party’s turnout efforts? Among the wisest words spoken this cycle were by John Dickerson of CBS News and Slate, who said, in a conversation the night before the last presidential debate, that he thought maybe the American people were quietly cooking something up, something we don’t know about.

    I think they are and I think it’s this: a Romney win.

    Romney’s crowds are building—28,000 in Morrisville, Pa., last night; 30,000 in West Chester, Ohio, Friday It isn’t only a triumph of advance planning: People came, they got through security and waited for hours in the cold. His rallies look like rallies now, not enactments. In some new way he’s caught his stride. He looks happy and grateful. His closing speech has been positive, future-looking, sweetly patriotic. His closing ads are sharp—the one about what’s going on at the rallies is moving.

    All the vibrations are right. A person who is helping him who is not a longtime Romneyite told me, yesterday: “I joined because I was anti Obama—I’m a patriot, I’ll join up But now I am pro-Romney.” Why? “I’ve spent time with him and I care about him and admire him. He’s a genuinely good man.” Looking at the crowds on TV, hearing them chant “Three more days” and “Two more days”—it feels like a lot of Republicans have gone from anti-Obama to pro-Romney.

    Something old is roaring back. One of the Romney campaign’s surrogates, who appeared at a rally with him the other night, spoke of the intensity and joy of the crowd “I worked the rope line, people wouldn’t let go of my hand.” It startled him. A former political figure who’s been in Ohio told me this morning something is moving with evangelicals, other church-going Protestants and religious Catholics. He said what’s happening with them is quiet, unreported and spreading: They really want Romney now, they’ll go out and vote, the election has taken on a new importance to them.

    There is no denying the Republicans have the passion now, the enthusiasm. The Democrats do not. Independents are breaking for Romney. And there’s the thing about the yard signs. In Florida a few weeks ago I saw Romney signs, not Obama ones. From Ohio I hear the same. From tony Northwest Washington, D.C., I hear the same.

    Is it possible this whole thing is playing out before our eyes and we’re not really noticing because we’re too busy looking at data on paper instead of what’s in front of us? Maybe that’s the real distortion of the polls this year: They left us discounting the world around us.

    And there is Obama, out there seeming tired and wan, showing up through sheer self discipline. A few weeks ago I saw the president and the governor at the Al Smith dinner, and both were beautiful specimens in their white ties and tails, and both worked the dais. But sitting there listening to the jokes and speeches, the archbishop of New York sitting between them, Obama looked like a young challenger—flinty, not so comfortable. He was distracted, and his smiles seemed forced. He looked like a man who’d just seen some bad internal polling. Romney? Expansive, hilarious, self-spoofing, with a few jokes of finely calibrated meanness that were just perfect for the crowd. He looked like a president. He looked like someone who’d just seen good internals.

    Of all people, Obama would know if he is in trouble. When it comes to national presidential races, he is a finely tuned political instrument: He read the field perfectly in 2008. He would know if he’s losing now, and it would explain his joylessness on the stump. He is out there doing what he has to to fight the fight. But he’s still trying to fire up the base when he ought to be wooing the center and speaking their calm centrist talk. His crowds haven’t been big. His people have struggled to fill various venues. This must hurt the president after the trememdous, stupendous crowds of ’08. “Voting’s the best revenge”—revenge against who, and for what? This is not a man who feels himself on the verge of a grand victory. His campaign doesn’t seem president-sized. It is small and sad and lost, driven by formidable will and zero joy.

    I suspect both Romney and Obama have a sense of what’s coming, and it’s part of why Romney looks so peaceful and Obama so roiled.

    Romney ends most rallies with his story of the Colorado scout troop that in 1986 had an American flag put in the space shuttle Challenger, saw the Challenger blow up as they watched on TV, and then found, through the persistence of their scoutmaster, that the flag had survived the explosion. It was returned to them by NASA officials. When Romney, afterward, was shown the flag, he touched it, and an electric jolt went up his arm. It’s a nice story. He doesn’t make its meaning fully clear. But maybe he means it as a metaphor for America: It can go through a terrible time, a catastrophe, as it has economically the past five years, and still emerge whole, intact, enduring.

    Maybe that’s what the coming Romney moment is about: independents, conservatives, Republicans, even some Democrats, thinking: We can turn it around, we can work together, we can right this thing, and he can help.

    What happens in California today might be just as important as the national election. California may not be a battleground state as it was back in 1978 when the passage of Proposition 13 ( a measure to limit skyrocketing property taxes) but if Proposition 30 ( an effort to raise taxes to fund public employee unions) fails then it would signal another tax revolt is coming.

    Prop 30 is supposed to be about ‘education’ , a buzzword the left loves because it makes public employee union raids on the taxpayer seem altruistic, but it is really just a last ditch effort to prevent the state from overt bankruptcy. Without the $ 6 billion in additional income and sales tax revenue this measure is supposed to generate its game over in Sacramento. Thus Governor Brown and the public employee unions have poured millions into its passage. Symbolically one of the main opponents is the Howard Jarvis group that led the fight to pass proposition 13 when Jerry Brown was spraying insecticide on Californians in his battle with fruit flies and earning his nickname of “Moonbeam’ during his first appearance as Governor of California.

    If even today’s far more liberal Californians won’t pass prop 30 then the jig is up everywhere in the US for more government.

    Romney is the last chance for saving our Republic .
    If Obama is re-elected , sharia law will supplant our Constitution and Iran will get a nuclear bomb and use it to control the MENA oil flow which will cause American commerce to grind to a halt.

    Best Way to Make a Difference in Today’s Vote

    Tuesday, November 06, 2012 – by Anthony Wile

    Anthony WileThe Washington Post published an interesting editorial yesterday, entitled “What kind of president would Obama be in second term?” I have my own thoughts, but let’s take a quick look at this article, which provides us with a serious, even scholarly, set of questions and prognostications.

    At the end of this editorial, I’ll provide an action point that people can take advantage of regarding the election. But first, we’ll review how Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney, might act if in power over the next four years. The Post article is a great jumping-off place.

    The article begins by pointing out that even if people think they know who Barack Obama is and what he stands for, the big question remains, “How would the experience of his first term inform and shape a second?”

    We also learn that Obama seems on his way to answer this question as he has a slight lead, according to most polls. Mitt Romney has continued to fight hard but I agree that Obama is likely to win. He is obviously the establishment candidate and the power elite that apparently placed him in office doesn’t want him to leave with his job half done.

    Now that the article has set the stage, there are still more questions to ask. Here, from the article:

    Would he become what he promised in 2008 but was not in his first term, a leader with the talents to guide a divided political system to a consensus on the country’s most intractable problems?

    Would the scars from a series of bitter fights with Republicans make him more or less inclined to make compromises he might have made in his first term?

    What would animate him in a second term?

    What would he pursue for his legacy?

    We learn that Obama has “expressed confidence that, as a newly reelected president, he could produce the grand bargain with congressional Republicans on a plan to deal with the federal deficit that he could not reach in the summer of 2011.” Another priority will be immigration reform, which not even President George W. Bush was able to accomplish.

    Neither the “grand bargain” nor immigration reform were much discussed by Obama during the campaign. In fact, the Post confides, Obama, like Romney, “has a five-point plan.” It includes: more jobs, expanding domestic energy, adding money for education and training, reducing the US war budget and redirecting the US infrastructure.

    It is explained that these sorts of goals – especially the rarely stated goals of immigration reform and deficit reduction – are part of what his advisers call “Obama’s political DNA.” In other words, Obama is a compromiser and a reasonable man and will govern even more in this style in his next term.

    The article follows up this observation with a portrayal of Republicans as disputing this perspective. For Republicans, Obama is an “ideologically driven, big-government liberal whose ambitions all point left, and they think that a second term would bring more.”

    It will be up to Obama to define how he will work with the Republicans if he wins again. Will it be a repeat of the first four years, a term that was surely steeped in acrimony?

    Here, there is some good news amidst the bad, from the Post’s perspective. While running a surprisingly “hard-edged” campaign, Hurricane Sandy gave the incumbent a chance to make a plea for more cooperation between the two parties.

    In fact, we learn, “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has been one of the president’s harshest critics, has become Obama’s protector, offering praise for the way he has responded to the storm.”

    The Post ends on a doubtful note. It is impossible to ascertain how Obama will act during a second term but one thing is certain: If he wins, “he will have a second chance to show what he is all about.”

    You can see from this recitation that the Post editorial writer is fairly undecided about how Obama will perform during a second term. I am not nearly so uncertain. In fact, I will go so far as to say I can predict how BOTH candidates will react were they to win (or regain) the White House. Let us consider the similarities between them, as follows:

    •Both are pro-foreign interventionist policy
    •Both cater to the military-industrial complex
    •Both are in the employ of the international banking cartel
    •Both will expand government
    •Both will expand anti-liberty/freedom laws
    •Both will support a war on Internet freedom
    •Both will continue the war on drugs
    •Both will continue to support regulatory growth
    •Both will support FATCA and alienate US Marts
    •Both will continue current tax structure
    •Both will support bailouts for corporate elite
    •Both will suppress militarily any anti-government voices

    In practice, citizens of the US will become angrier, poorer and less secure in their privacy and property. Even when it comes to precious metals, the end result will be similar.

    If Romney wins by some chance, gold and silver will go down for a little bit based on the misapprehension that Romney is more fiscally conservative than Obama. Once Romney’s performance has shown he is just as irresponsible – mad – as Obama, gold and silver will continue their rise. If Obama wins, gold and silver will discard a momentary dip and probably simply continue the upward trajectory of the past decade.

    It is really too bad that these ended up being the US’s two main choices. But really, one has to admit that even were someone like constitutionalist Congressman Ron Paul to have been elected, the structure of Leviathan would be resistant to any change.

    The US is basically run by a larger power elite based not just in the US but also in the City of London, the Vatican and Tel Aviv. In fact, the country and its wars are part of a larger, quickening elite effort to create world government.

    And so, again, nothing will change. The US will continue to be a morally, spiritually and financially bankrupt entity – one spiraling down toward the bottom of a slide greased with fiat money and militarism promoted by powerful entities intent on further degrading what is left of US exceptionalism.

    Action point: ——– Those who want to make a difference via the election process would do well to avoid voting and encourage others to do the same. The first step to taking back whatever is still good in the “US” is to withdraw one’s approval of what’s now taking place.

I think most people that are at all serious about the issue of owning such weapons also realise the advantages of operating only the most common calibers. 5.56, 7.62×39, 7.62×51, 9mm, .45ACP, and the always-useful .22LR. Pick and choose from those, plus a decent 12ga, and then move to the other preps. 6.8 was a boutique distraction from start to finish.. pointless and expensive. Same goes for .300AAC.

    Don’t overlook .308. There is much better availability of .308 than 30-06 anymore.

    My Nazi Mauser .308 custom with Shilen barrel and Timney trigger is a great shooter.

    At 300 yards, the glass you’re looking through is just as important as your gun, unless you have very exceptional vision. I like Leupold.

    I don’t think availability of ammo is quite such a big deal for a side arm personally. How many times do you think you’re going to go into battle with a pistol? I’m shooting a CZ52 in the 7.62×25 Tokarev. It’s pretty cheap, and it has nice ballistics.

    Flash, I believe if you research it, you’ll find that more people are killed every year with .22 than any other caliber as well. I guess people just look at the tiny little bullets and think they’re the same as a pellet gun or something… maroons.

    *.308 is usually interchangeable into 7.62×51 chambered rifles. ALWAYS check first with your specific rifle, of course, but most anything set up for the NATO-spec 7.62 will shoot .308. Similar to 5.56 will eat .223 all day long, but you’ll risk a minor explosion and potential of a slight death or two by running 5.56 in a .223.*

    Ruger Mini-14, although technically considered .223, is rated from the factory to function safely and reliably w/ 5.56. Some other .223s cannot handle 5.56 safely. .308 and 7.62×51 are dimensionally identical, and safe to fire interchangeably, EXCEPT that gas operated semi-autos (like M1-A, M-1 Garand in .308) should not use commercial ammo unless loaded for gas guns (Federal makes a M1-A load. Also a 30-06 Garand load). 150 grain is probably OK, heavier bullets will typically be loaded with too slow a powder and although peak pressure will be OK, you’ll have too much pressure at the gas port and bend your op rod. Hand loads using appropriate powders can allow heavier bullets, but with reduced performance. Adjustable gas guns like FN-FAL, can use the heavier bullet factory loads if you adjust the port down. Re 30-06 Garands, same thing about commercial ammo-keep it at 150 grains, or 168 gr match loads unless you reload.

    AKAnon – Nice write-up on the .308 vs 7.62×51 situation, thanks. I haven’t owned one or had a chance to play with one on a range, so I have no firsthand experience. If I can ever manage to score a decent paying job and/or hit the lottery, a brand new Springfield M1A is next on my acquisitions list. Talk about fucking expensive… too rich for my current circumstances.

    How about the Kel-Tec PMR30? A semi-auto pistol, 30+1 capacity of .22WMR… I could foresee a shitload of fun times with that, and still relatively cheap to feed. I’ve become something of a fan of the ol’ .22 Mag in the past couple of years. Good performance out to 150, my Savage can even put up 1.5 to 2″ groups at 225 with cheap FMJ’s – although I don’t know how much ass it still has that far out of course. 1/2″ groups at 100 or less even with a hot barrel also inspires confidence for me – shot placement can always make up for a sub-caliber round in a pinch.

  95. AKAnon says:

    .308/7.62 is a very versatile caliber. Not quite as versatile as 30-06 for heavy bullets. An ’06 bolt rifle can handle from 110 grain varmint loads to 220 grains, although I see little point in over 180 or 190 grain loads. I use 165 or 180 for moose and bear. .308 can be loaded w/ 180 grain bullets, but you lose 200 fps or more compared to ’06. But 7.62 ammo comes in many interesting flavors, including military surplus. M1-A is, imo, an excellent choice for a battle rifle, and still widely used in high-power competition, although AR-15 is more common. But as noted above, you need to watch the loads. FYI-you can get a used M-1 Garand in 30-06 from the Civilian Marksmanship Program for about $600 http://www.odcmp.com/ but beware-you will need to provide personal info. Rules also require proof of membership in an approved club and participation in a sanctioned match.

    I have never been too big a fan of 22 WMR-not that much performance improvement over high performance 22 LR. In a short barrel pistol, I doubt the improvement is measurable, but in a rifle, 22 WMR does step it up a bit. But if I need more than 22LR, personally I go to a center-fire. If you don’t reload, maybe 22 WMR fills a significant niche. Similarly, I was never a big fan of 30 carbine (a great caliber, I should think, for hunting dog-sized critters. But I don’t hunt dogs). But it is a fun round to shoot, and from a carbine, certainly more effective than most any handgun cartridge. As originally conceived, as an alternative to a sidearm (1911) for the non-infantry GI, it is a good choice for home or short-range vehicle defence. But it doesn’t reach out too far-maybe 150 yards or so. I shoot .308 and 30-06 bolt guns to 1,000 yards.

    This is the first time, but not the last, that I say I told you so. Smokey and I called this 2 years ago. The Free Shit Army plus all of the drones and the SSDI and the unionists plus the people of color plus the students on government loans, etc etc etc are just too numerous.

    And compounding the problem is that these groups hate anyone actually earning their keep – those are the rich, and it cannot be allowed for them to be affluent – they must pay their fair share. Their fair share is they must forfeit it all.

    May God have mercy on the US, as there is nothing left that I recognize.

    You are predictable and probably right but my guess is the GOP Congress will dig in its heels and make the Democrats operate under the debt ceiling. That means Obama has to submit a budget base upon current revenues and expenditures and decide where the cuts take place.

    That is going to be positive for the dollar and thus gold is in trouble and believe me as an owner of gold and coal miners I’be hurting! a

    I voted for Romney last week because I felt it was my only option to remove the Soetoro from office. That said, I had made numerous campaign contributions to Ron Paul in 2012 hoping that he would be on the ballot in 2012 as a Republican. That did not happen. Gov Romney could have chosen Ron Paul as a VP running mate but he apparently followed the advice of several neocon cheesedicks and, of course, the sleazy Wall Street banksters that contributed so much to his campaign. Too bad, Mitt. You made a bad choice.

    After I saw that the GOP lost last night, the only solace I took to bed with me was that those that voted for Team Soetoro/Biden (and made his re-election possible) will suffer just as much as I will during the next four years. Congratulations to the liberal “progressives” and FSA idiots out there that voted for the continuation of the communist state. You voted for “it”, and you will get “it” nice and hard just like the rest of us who were wise enough to vote otherwise.

    I will never give up on my country. I will never abandon the U.S. Constitution. I will always support states’ rights. I will do everything in my power over the next four years to discredit and starve the socialist beast that sits in my front yard.
