Greetings, One & All!
This is an invitation only. Tomorrow night around 6 PM Eastern, I'll have another article going up so that viners far and wide can discuss, celebrate and/or mourn the election results as they come in. EVERYONE IS INVITED. Whatever nation blocks I had before are now removed. I'll be providing some links to live streams of election results you can use or lose. If you've got some good sources for that, post them in comments below, and I'll link them too.
Whichever side you're on, I'm pretty sure we can all agree this is an election of epic portent for the future of the United States, and, given the extreme polarization of voters, there will be a great deal of gnashing of teeth and rending of garments whatever the outcome.
Will any of the gloomier predictions about what could happen tomorrow night come true?
Will there be voter fraud? Intimidation? Disenfranchisement? Will there be evidence that the election is "rigged'? Will new voter ID requirements and reduced polling places in some states suppress the vote substantially or be overcome by huge turnouts? Will there be challenges or recounts or court interventions?
Will it really be "over" tomorrow night, or will this election cycle and its aftermath haunt us for years?
We'll see, but it would seem a safe bet that there's bound to be a lot of drama no matter what.
Let's have some fun anyway!
