    Default DOOM, or The Official 2016 US Election Thread

    So, I've got next week off, and will be watching this until the bitter end, or until I pass out surrounded by empty bottles and an over-spilling ash tray.

    It's almost here folks. The end of the World as we know it.

    This is the thread for the build-up, real-time election night gossip and gasps, and the messy aftermath.

    Place your bets now.

    Don't fret, it looks like Hillary is losing

    On the other hand, I did take delivery of a family pack of iosat potassium iodide pills last week.

    this could be close, scary as hell! clinton was never ahead by as much as some polls said, but she's definitely lost ground. i still have faith in the clinton ground game making the difference in key swing states, but it's going to be a lot harder to pull off than expected, or than it by all rights should be.

    one potential silver lining about comey's latest email statement is it could motivate the democratic base to get out and vote. the clinton campaign has been working like crazy but the base seemed to have become a little comfortable and lazy, thinking she had an insurmountable lead.

    Is there any argument against the assertion that the GOP in its current incarnation is the single most dangerous group in the entire history of humanity?

    Actually, when was the last time that this wasnt true?

    Isn't the current incarnation of the GOP an incoherent mess? What's so dangerous about them?

    Pro nuclear proliferation, pro use of nuclear weapons, pro conflict and resource war, refusal to even accept the existence of climate change, let alone do something about it.

    Dangerous to the continued existence of the human race - the biggest threats to which are climate change and nuclear apocalypse.

    Capability to destroy the planet and willingness (or even eagerness) to do so are very different things.

    Dangerous for whom? For a good half-century or more at least three states and probably five have possessed the capability to render most or all of the Earth's surface uninhabitable, if that's what you're getting at.

    Hillary will win this, by quite a margin.
