        Mine, too! I had to look him up. Maybe our two votes will change things?

          What about lucky drawers? Barack Obama has lucky underwear. Actually, I don't know if he does, but it would make for an interesting dilemma.

            Imagine that, I'm 95% with Gary Johnson and 83% with the Libertarian party.

            Notable mentions:

            76% Virgil Goode (who the hell is that?)
            72% Mitt Romney (I seriously doubt that)
            37% Jill Stein (Domestic.....?)
            37% Rocky Anderson (Who?)
            34% Barack Obama (That seems a bit high...)
            49% With the amorphous American Voter....?

            83% Libertarian, sounds about right....
            75% Republican, that's total horse shit....
            43% Democrat, too much me thinks....
            41% Green, oh hell no!
            Went Primal: 20 DEC 2011

            Current: 183 lbs @ 8.33% BF (Jackson/Pollock 4 caliper method)
            Current Energy: "WOOHOO!" See my journal HERE.

He is surrounded by neo-cons and ex Bush influencers, so if he wins expect an aggressive military and foreign policy posture and ultimately higher deficits because tax revenues are already at historically low rates (their true belief regarding the deficit was articulated by Cheney who said "deficits don't matter" before invading Iraq and Afghanistan while reducing taxes). There will be an explosion in oil, gas and coal production which will positively impact job creation in the carbon energy industries within state and local economies, but the increased volume will not be for local consumption as all oil goes into the world reserves and is priced on the world market (for example the proposed pipeline moving oil from Canada to the Gulf goes into the world market and is not delivering oil specific to the US). Alternative energy will not be a priority and will whither, leaving the industry to the Chinese to dominate. The environmental protection agency will be gutted as they see environmental regulation as unnecessary and a hindrance to economic growth.
              Similar to the UK in that the bankers do what they want with very little regulation.
              i can see why rich individuals may vote for him but cant see any benefit for the average voter.
              in the UK they have reduced taxes for the rich while the working and middle classes have ended up paying more plus they have cut help to the most vulnerable in society - the disabled. However they put such a spin on it and with a right wing press they seem to be able to get away with it.

                    Have not heard of either of these two, but did a quick search on Tucker and I was impressed with his "four monopolies".

                      89% Gary Johnson (not surprising since I'm a Libertarian)
                      69% Jill Stein (I'll have to look her up - sounds interesting)
                      68% Barack Obama (mostly on environmental)
                      66% Mitt Romney (though I guarantee we disagree on the whole underwear thing)

                      62% Nevada voters
                      60% American voters
                      Durp.

                        Almost exactly my numbers (but I'm a WI girl)! I like you.

                        For those lamenting they came out Libertarian with Republican not too far behind, they have some of the same basic ideals... just too many polarizing fools in charge these days.

                          Cool!

                          And agreeing about the tie between Libertarian and Republican. Libertarians tend to be fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

                          Oh, and about the fools too.

                            I stand where I should be - I am not voting this year. Enough of this nonsense.

                              I'm non-religious and live in Salt Lake City. I really don't see the Mormon magic underwear as anything significantly different from the Jewish magic head hotpad, or the Muslim magic scarfs. It's just that people like Jews, but don't like Mormons, so mocking them feels more acceptable.

                              Interestingly enough, I was browsing Wikipedia on religious clothing and discovered that Sikhs wear sacred undergarments as well...

                                Oh, I fully agree. They are all equally silly in this unwashed heathen's opinion. But you gotta agree that it is more fun to make fun of sacred underwear than a scarf or a hat.
