I'm voting for Obama, but my wife had planned to vote for Romney, but based on all the harassing phone calls we've been getting from the RNC she may switch sides or simply not vote.  We are referring to these calls as harassing based on the number and time of the calls.  On average we've been getting two to five calls per day from the RNC or someone calling on their behave with about one call every two days being after bedtime.   

I hadn't realized how much this was compared to the rest of the US until CNN said that the election depended on Northern Virginia.  What a slap in the face that must be to the rest of the rest of the voters that are not in swing states. 

When we lived in Mississippi our votes didn't really count because the state was always red.  When we lived in California it didn't matter on the national level because the state was blue.  Now it matters so much that we are harassed about it.  I feel sorry for the democrats in Mississippi, the republicans in California, and everyone else's vote that seemingly or realistically does not matter.  I don't think this is what the founding fathers had in mind.

I know that feel. I'm a democrat in Texas where Romney is assured a win. I voted anyway. :/

Anyway, I'm grateful that the Canadian election system is slightly less confusing.

Might wanna change the topic title, man.

Anyways, I find it kinda funny how I live in a red state, but all the adults I know are either voting for Obama or aren't voting.

I voted for Jill Stein.  My brother voted for Romney specifically because he doesn't want Obama to win. X/

99% of Romney voters are voting solely for that reason.

A lot of conservatives who were calling Romney a RINO during the primaries support him now, which I suspect is for precisely that reason.

I hate not having instant-runoff or range voting. I voted for Obama and regret not voting for Jill Stein, but if I'd voted for her I'd regret not voting for him.

Obama winning is nice, but doesn't surprise me.

Washington and Colorado legalizing marijuana surprises me greatly, however.
