Maybe our left-leaning rhetoric scared them off, and they thought "fuck it, no use arguing with them".

There are some Republican posters I miss and wish they would come back.

I like nbcrusader, he was a very nice guy. I saw him logged in a few times this year but he never posted.

That's cool. I have his e-mail (think I still have it) but I haven't e-mailed him in ages. Hope he's doing well.

That was his name, that was the one I was referring to! I knew it was "crusader" but forgot the rest of his name.

Yeah, he was a nice guy. I didn't always agree with him, but he never caused any problems here. It would be nice to have him back.

omg LOL!
that's soooofunny

Hmmmm... we need a Quantum-Flow Scientist in here to explain this!

Oh...wait.....


....and look who's here! *waves*



*Edge steps into FYM and waves*

*rippling waves of wildy edges colors form a space void-black hole in front of us. We peer in and see the past. A recording studio appears, and so does U2*

Stop, guys!
*the band startles and puts their instruments /microphone down*
Whaaaa...huh? wtf?
we can't release this now!
#@$@^ bloody hell! foock

*The Edge rolls out vivid charts showing various lines of
USA voter turnouts
*

See this, this, this and that! (pointer finger hits a particular spot the chart) I'ver been able to super upgrade, and fine tune my computers ..... I've got it... it's fucking weird, astonishing....
*Larry rolls eyes*
*Adam nudges Larryand whispers* Psst - you should know better!
*Adam & Bono lean foward*

We...WE are now the deciding factor in the USA Presidential Election!!!

*more colorful metaphors ensure! The guys follow Edge's
finger going through each graph-line and explainations. Slowly each pair of incredulous, doubting eyes begin to light up in comprehension!

*Still moar colorful metaphors abound. But this time they are of the "aha!" kind.*


The Ede turns to his bandmates....Do you all agree then on what we have to do?

*The rest of the band nods solemnly, which a chuckle*

Well, you know, apparently despite disagreeing with many things Republican, as a Libertarian I'm just someone who doesn't want to admit they're a Republican.

Apparently

His son is super good at water polo and his family got a German Shepherd a while back so we chatted about that.

I'm hearing reports now that many members of the GOP are blaming Hurricane Sandy for being too liberal.

in Philidelphia the turnout for Obama areas are 20% higher than 2008.

Very high turn out in the Akcron Ohio area with alot of people voting for Obama.
