    We will know who our next President is going to be in a little over 24 hours. It'll either be an extremely qualified former Secretary of State, Senator, and first ever woman President elect or a vengeful man baby who just so happens to be a serial sexual predator. The decision is up to you, especially those of you who live in the so called swing states.

    I try not to get too hyperbolic about things, but this election may very well determine the future of our country. We have never before flirted with electing a "strong man" as President before and if we vote one in then all bets are off. The last thing I want is for us to wake up on Wednesday and shoot ourselves in the foot because some people were too lazy to vote.

    Early voting numbers have been very promising for Clinton, but the last thing left leaning people can do is get complacent in the final 24 hours of the campaign because if Republicans are known for anything, it's voting.

    I am voting in person tomorrow. No ID showing my Florida address but I do have various pieces of mail. Hoping that is sufficient. The Senate races are a question mark. Sounds like several races could be very close. No last second bomb shells reported yet. I will assume nothing though.

    Make sure you read over the documentation Florida will accept before heading to the polls, TJ.

    I suggest possibly going online and printing off your debit or credit card statement with your Florida address if you don't have a passport or any of the other documents they list.

    I voted absentee before leaving the country. In Colorado it was actually quite easy. I think one of the things that has pushed Colorado from purple to blue is the fact that we have the option of mailing in our ballots (mailed to voters three weeks before election) or dropping them off in many convenient drop-off boxes located around the city; also three weeks of early in-person voting at various locations, plus same day registration if you want to go down to the Clerk and Recorder's office or one of their sub offices and register and vote on election day. All of this was made possible by Democrats a few years ago. Republicans were bitterly opposed and fought it.

    I do have a passport but it was issued when I lived in Ohio. I am leaving to vote in about 30 minutes. Fingers crossed.

    Well wishes for Mrs Bird and all others. I have voted. Passport was a good suggestion. My paper ballot did show abrev of party affiliations. Hopeful but concerned. Last night Mrs Clinton said I don't want to be pres. Just for those that vote for me. Hopefully deplorable ones can heal and perhaps decide this is the year when they will learn to read.

    lonely bird, She has been suffering one of the most painful conditions. The convalesing instructions are infinitely important. Help her follow them. Best wishes and good luck. Most surgeons don't support their work with diet. You might want to look at those options also. Again best wishes.

    President Trump? Seems like more and more are calling for our acceptance of that phrase. I don't want to but show me the contrary math. 538 Nate Silver ? Talk to us !

    Members ? Might be unhappy but you are able to type. Add something please.

    As much as it pains me to say it "The deplorables have won" The real American Exceptualism has shown its ugly head and we all lose because of it.

    Is this the Comey effect? Being overseas I cannot tell what the pundits are saying.
