in response to reader comment: This time around

No, Stas. The American people have no idea. Our mainstream media is biased and do not report anything that could in any way be detrimental to Obama. The only ones who are aware, are those who follow carefully on the Internet, and they're only a small percentage of the public. Fox is the only network that criticizes the president, but even they don't cover him nearly enough. In '08 I was sure , I just knew he was going to be elected. This time, I don't know. His propaganda program is quite good, and the MSM lets him get away with so many, many lies.

So far, the polls show that he is pretty much neck and neck with Romney. But that's counting individual voters. We have a system here whereby if he wins a majority in a State, he gets all the electoral votes of that State, which makes it quite different from the "popular" vote. There have been one or two times that a president has lost the popular vote, but won the "electoral" vote.

There's no way to know at this point, and I have no intuitive feelings about it as I did in '08.

If he does win, the entire world will suffer, maybe forever.
