#1 As I reflect on the close race of 2008, events of the last 4 years and of today, I have a nagging, a sickening feeling, that even if defeated, he will not step down. These people have shown time and time again their disdain for the constitution, the congress, the rule of law. I pray God will be with us and our children if this happens.

If he is defeated, and the election gets certified for Romney, he'll have no choice. While it has never happened, Obama can be removed by force if necessary once Romney is sworn in.
If he does try any nonsense, D.C. will likely burn, the people will not have much more of this creature.

Therein lies the key, "certification". If through some alleged vote counting or procedural misdead, the certification is delayed through legal means, what then ? I do not trust these people.

#4 "I pray God will be with us and our children if this happens."
-Beso, I concur. I would also add that "the other side" should be praying to God (if they beleive in him) if this happens. It will not end well for them - for a lot of reasons.

First check with the county boards of elections wherever you have lived to make sure you and yours are no longer registered in the old places, and are registered where you live currently -- it can be done on-line for most jurisdictions. Here in Ohio nearly half a million names have been cleaned from the rolls as duplicates and deceased, which seems to have the Democrats concerned. I actually got a phone call last week from a pollster who wanted to know if I intended to vote, was I sure, and what time did I plan in getting to the polls. Which leads me to the nest point, which is vote early in the day, and vote in person. It's harder for votes to go astray when they don't start out in a loseable mailbag. Finally, volunteer as a poll watcher, so you can control attempts at hanky panky in your polling place at least.
i haven't met you in person, Besoeker, but I suspect you can be formidable when you choose to be, and ditto for quite a few of our Rantburgers.
We can be an Army of Davids, as the Instapundit calls it.

#6 If this idiot stays in power, I will be part of an army to remove him as his rule will be completely illegitimate.

I do not trust them either, not for a second. But I don't worry about Vote Fraud too much here in Texas. I do worry about it elsewhere though. TW offers sage advice on the getting involved side.
And Broadhead6 makes a solid point, if the Left even try to steal this election they will be making a grave mistake. I don't think it is going to be possible though, all of the direct and anecdotal evidence I've seen and heard shows this is going to be a Repub wave, possibly even bigger than 2010.
Lots of Joe & Jane Democrats in the street have had the scales ripped from their eyes and have finally seen what their Party has become. The Marxists have cast aside their mask too soon, and the jig is up. Hence their desperation.
All Barky had to do was play it cool for his first term and just get the stage set for a second term and the whole enchilada could have been theirs, but they over reached due to their excitement of having their decades long goal in reach.

#8 I doubt that the debate changed anyone's feelings ... but speaking objectively it was a "win" for Obama. He bounced back from the first debate.
That was Chicago politics at its "finest". Hillary took the sword for the Libya cock-up, Obama stands up with majesty and says "But I'm the President and the buck stops here". And the whole thing is defused ... Romney has nothing to come back with. This was exactly why Hillary had to come out with her early statement this week.

#9 Talking about an incipient coup does no one, and you, no favors.
Save the vapor-lock until the day after the election, please.

#10 Remember, guyz, you HAVE to vote.
If it's not close, they can't cheat.

#11 Bull. Since when did the deeds and behaviors of US foreign policy become illegal to discuss?
Don't politicize foreign events because shutup.
P$$ on him, hiding behind caskets and my people. They are US Representatives and volunteers who died in defense of the defenseless. They are our people, our values. Shutup. Spoke for itself.
Since when has the policies and behavior and any president been off-limits. No, a million times no, whoever is in that office.
