Election 2012: Update #13


10:42 p.m. All the reasons that Americans rejected Mitt Romney tonight are being magnified by his refusal to concede in a timely fashion tonight.

10:33 p.m. 36 voters still in line in Missoula, reports Rob Chaney. A big thanks to the voters willing to wait and election officials across the state.

Absolutely crazy. People are still voting in Helena, Missoula, Bozeman, Billings, and Kalispell—maybe other spots. Have I mentioned that Brad Johnson and the Montana GOP not only want to end same-day registration, but have tried to prevent people standing in line from voting tonight? What does it say about a political party that it depends on suppressing the vote to win?

At least we count on the Republicans coming together to support the country, right? Maybe not:

If Obama is reelected, good hardworking people should give up and go Galt. The tipping point is the 2012 election. Will the makers finally succumb to the takers? It’s pointless to think that if America reelects the most unqualified disastrous president in recent memory, we should stand our ground and continue fighting. it’s a signal that marxist free-lunchism and free birth control for everyone trump economic well-being and prosperity in the minds of the masses.

The Independent Record might want to work on this chart:


Dan Cox still holding at a solid 5.83% of the vote.
