    Tomorrow will be a very passionate day for many here. Please think twice before posting rude commentary directed at other members. Regardless of opinion i can say with great conviction that no person's opinion in this forum determined the outcome of the election - I am sure of it.

    We as Americans have great freedoms that were born of sweat, dedication, sacrifice, blood and death. to take another's opinion away through rude commentary is a slap in the face to all who fought for our rights and freedoms.

    There is no right and wrong opinions. there may be majority and minority opinions but it's impossible to determine which are right and which are wrong because we cannot test both and a control group at the same time - we just can't.

    If there is someone in this forum who you truly cannot stand - perhaps tomorrow you can go the extra mile to either show them some semblance of respect or avoid their posts altogether - both scenarios will help us get through a tough day for some and a happy day for others.

    With every election season and process ... this great country with it's great people carries on and will again this time. Romney and Obama are really not polar opposites of each other - the election only makes it appear that way to get us to vote.

    Enjoy tomorrow for better or worse - it's a great day regardless of victor.

    Thank You

    Either way, I'll be honoring my bet... even if it was "nullified." I believe in honor with wagers, even if my opponent might not.

    Still, if Romney wins I promise to be a good sport in my sendoff essay, wish him well, and hope America gets back on track.

    Forum is a better place with you here ... if you lose the bet donate to charity instead. ;)

    Or open the doors for people at your local republican after party ... :p

    I don't agree with most of what you say or how you say it, but I still enjoy reading it. Opposing views are what it is all about :)

    No matter who wins, only idiots will gloat and try to rub it in.

    Whether everyone realizes it or not, we all win whomever is elected.

    I will hypothetically knock out the first gloater on here...:beatingcoming:

    You really don't. There is always someone who loses and it's always been the way...it's the one reason my vote here in the UK will always go to to the dame party, regardless of who runs it.

    But, anyway, nice thread. Sadly people will ignore it but try not to bite!

    Oh, and vote Obama!

    I agree completely with the intent, however there will be those who gloat or try to rub things in...

    As much as I like and appreciate what Titus has to offer, his honor is lauded.. a bet is a bet, no matter who does what, a man is defined by his word..

    With that being said, I am quietly confident about Obama..

    You can't ignore Ian. The bet is off. Besides, it's a stupid bet, with no winners. You may want PF out of here, but I have always enjoyed his well thought out views on climate change and many other issues, as I have appreciated your strong support of many liberal policies. Respect Ian's decision and accept that the bet is off or otherwise, if you lose, it will simply look like you're too cowardly to face the dark ages. You don't want that, do you? ;)

    Ian controls the board, but does not control the word of gentlemen.. honor is honor, no matter how you look at it..

    I respect Titus for agreeing to honor his wager...

    Re: Tomorrow Will Be a Very Passionate Day - Please Read.

    Honor in this case is stupid. I deal with victims of honor all the time--years in prison, stab wounds, gun shot wounds, etc. Alexander Hamilton was killed because of honor. Honor killings in the Arab world are an example of their lack of social progress. There may be a time and place for honor, but in the political forum in my view it's just an act of childishness. There is no honor in the bet between Titus and PF13; it's merely a bet.

    You minimize the ideals of an adult.. unfortunately, you extrapolate your subjective experience with how you behave and a person's personal responsibilty.

    The values or honor and integrity, unfortunately, have been watered down and minimized by society in general as excuses, excuses and rationalization is sought...

    Titus should be lauded for his honor and integrity.. not minimized and termed "childish"..

    Comparing an individual's word to something that happens in a third world country, adds to the oft found hysteria on this site..

    Thankfully, our attitude toward foreign opinions is "we really dont give a rats ass what you think"

    And since you're not American, you don't realize what our votes are all about. You don't have a clue if you can't understand that no one wins or loses, but we all win.

    Guess that's why we kicked your Brit butts outta here way back when, huh?

    "Internet Honor" between strangers who really don't exist. And while one of whom really isn't who he says he is.....

    Honor indeed......:rolleyes:

    Education 101: When a society has the privelage of our democratic process of voting, they all enjoy the benefits of that process.

    With the 2 jokers we're faced with voting for, I understand your point of "Seriously?"

    But this is more what I was serious about....

    I wish Press Coverage still came here so I could slap his butt around again.....

    Here's to a good day everyone. I hope there is room for comprise and a sense of working towards greatness whichever way the outcome falls.

    As for Titus - Mucho respect to you sir in honoring your bet. As someone famously said all a man's got are his cojones and his word in this world. However, I hope you stay on and post here. I know we don't agree across the board (I could say that for every poster here) but this forum is better with your voice coming through too.

    "You extrapolate your subjective experience...."??? Really Darryl?

    And talking about honor on an internet board where everyone is anonymous is YOUR reality?

    No one here, including you & I have "honor" on this board. All we have is the words we choose to type. Just a little hint....this stuff isn't reality here ya know.

    I get your point PR (this is La-La Land).

    But a man's word (or woman's word) is simply that. Whether it is here or in your real life, honor and integrity mean something.
