Looks like I will stay the course.

I had plans to move some money into stocks, and buy a couple of big ticket items.

Should have sold in October like I advised my clients. We are going down in a disastrous way. This time the Dems won’t be able to blame Bush, because the Obama has had the job four years.

If obama wins and it looks like he will... I will shut down my 40 year old business early next year and reduce my footprint as much as possible. I will not feed the beast that is eating me... any more than I have to. I am John Galt.

We will be COMPLETELY owned by China. Why would anybody want to continue running a business in this country?

I’m with you. I won’t continue to feed this f**king beast.

Just not worth it anymore.

I’m sure an 0bama win was ‘priced in’ to the market months ago. The market has been way up, so as far as the Wall St guys are concerned the world has been wonderful during the past 4 years. They probably couldn’t imagine anything but an 0bama win.

In keeping everything up though, I believe they’ve built a massive house of cards that will come crashing down.

The votes that went to the Libertarian candidate in Florida would put Mitt Romney in winning position right now. Do we think there are military votes that will be coming in the mail in the next few days?

Wonder what the unemployment rate will be up to in January when all those “good” part-time holiday retail jobs come to an end.....

If this country of malcontents, fagots, moderates that have no moral or fiscal core... racists, anarchists... if this rotten corpse of what once was truly the greatest republic known to man... if they love obama and his marxist, muslim ways so much... then I refuse to pay for any more of it than I legally have to. Three SCOTUS picks and we are DOA and harry reid controls that event 100%.

I’m running the numbers right now. I had plans of expansion. The help wanted sign was going to go out tomorrow if Romney won.

I’ll cut back on new clients, keep just busy enough to keep my household going (and stash some) and ride it out.

One thing I think we are learning is Romney had the 47% wrong.

WE are the 47%.
The takers are the other 53%.

Bet folks are shorting coal companies. Already have a lot of gold and treasury shorts.
One good thing about having 5 acres in the exurbs is you can yell real loud and nobody cares. But after my bout of shouting expletives, I did manage to get the dogs going.

I agree. Well I have been losing money since obama was elected and if obama wins... I retire and go John Galt. Sad... I have worked all of my life... playing by the rules... honoring my word... building a fine business and a stellar reputation. I have never failed to pay any taxes that I have owed. I have never defaulted on a loan. I owe no one but utilities... I worked hard and paid for my home and autos. I have lost half of my retirement savings through obama’s devaluing of the dollar and I see the end of our Republic with the next three SCOTUS picks by obama. I am scared to death for all of us... society will collapse before obama serves out another term... if we are not a smoldering ruin due to the results of our enemies strengths and obama’s weaknesses.

I have my investments in gold and treasury shorts. If Romney won, I would have shifted a lot of my portfolio into energy related equities. Oh well, turn off the lights on America.
As for big ticket items I think a nice high powered rifle would do. The lines will be very long at the gun store.

Panetta and the brass kissers in the Pentagon like General Dempsey ensured that the military folks were denied their right to vote.

” society will collapse before obama serves out another term..”

Absolutely correct. Credit downgraded again. Debt interest explodes. The currency collapse is just around the corner in 2013. After that, civil war 2 or total anarchy.

My wife has been nagging me to buy her a different car and get rid of her truck, way things are going, truck will be kept for another 4 years and I will be tightening the wallet a lot next year.

In the back of my mind, I am thinking of leaving this country, New Zealand is on my list. Which 1st world country has easy immigration policies ?

I feel the same way. It’s time to learn to live on very little, and don’t feed the freeloading government any more than absolutely necessary.

And that means NOT buying tickets or going to NFL football games, and NOT staying in inner city hotels of the big Demoncrats cities, and spending any money in the bid cities, and counties of the Demoncrats.

We won’t be 1st world for long. I should have asked excluding USA. Besides NZ, I thought of Iceland as a different place. Even Israel if I had some enough Jewish blood. I know 1/16th doesn’t cut it though !

Israel is a secular Western democracy. It has an ordinary naturalization process like other countries. You don’t have to be Jewish.

Those it deems Jewish get automatic citizenship and certain benefits regular immigrants don’t.

Just be aware that Israel is also a socialist country.

I am 100% certain that the trajectory that this country is on ends badly and soon. We are near the end of the debt and inflation fueled fantasy that everyone can live a life of leisure without working.

The party will soon be ever. Obama may think he will be able to control and profit from the resulting chaos but I think not. “The guy who hands out the free stuff” is not a safe position when there is no more free stuff to give.

Chaos, anarchy, fratricide are coming. Heartbreaking but I think its now inevitable.
