    In order to keep our political discussion about today's election in one place, we're starting this thread. Feel free to discuss, but be sensitive that there are many people on both sides here. Even if you don't agree with someone's opinion, please treat them with respect.

    Not a good idea at all, Phil.

    It's better to have one thread devoted to today's election than to have multiple threads all over the forum, especially if this ends up being a close race that goes on for several days. That way those who want to talk about it can and those who want to avoid the political drama can as well.

    I think I would vote for Romney, but with that whole PBS and Sesame thing...I really have no idea. :(

    I think quarantining the inevitable discussion is a good thing. It'd spill over into just about every active thread otherwise. There's enough muffining around here without that.

    I am wearing my Sesame Street shirt as i leave for the polls - I reccomend other Muppet fans do the same...even if you've already voted, it would be great to wear Sesame today so other voters see you.

    My final decision wasn't included in the poll, hehe.

    Actually I should say decisions since it wasn't only the Presidency that people were voting on.

    I voted for Santa Clause. And this is where my political views end because this type of thing can get really ugly which is why I try to avoid it at all costs. I've seen friendships end over politics it's really just sad people can't respect each others views no matter how different they are. There's even some people on this forum who tend to attack others because their views differ from them. But this is where I'll shut up now and quietly leave.

    This would have been good to post in some of the other threads I've seen where politics is the topic. :D

    I'm actually glad this thread was creating...this way the political discussion can at least be monitored, so that if something does get out of hand, the mods can find out ASAP.

    I think Donald Trump will be all over proving Santa isn't an American citizen. There might also be some political gift giving scandals.
