    Tried to post this over in the political forum but says I'm restricted and won't let me post there so I'm going to post it here.

    Reading some threads on other forums sounds like people are expecting trouble in some areas during and after the elections. I think there maybe some in areas that are heavily populated. Don't think we will see any in my area here in Tennessee.

    We voted early to avoid any chaos just incase and to avoid the lines, early voting was extremely heavy in our areas with record turn outs.

    Wondering what others think about their own areas?

    Just got back from doing my patriotic duty.

    Voted straight GOP,
    and,

    it took us , (even with grandkids , and explaining the process), about 5 minutes,

    Nobody there but a bunch of old pharts,
    Course, that's all that lives in my district.(cept me).

    Big turnout though.:) Steady flow of folks,


    Glad I din't have to use my weapon against any intimidator thug types.;)

    I have voted. The district 3-2 line had about 100 people in it. My district 3-1 line had only me in it. Hah!

    I expect to stay up until ~1AM to watch the vote tally (there's probably enough whisky to last).

    I did my duty today and voted, and YES I voted for Donald Trump. The thing that impressed me the most is that when I got my ballot I had to wait for a booth to open up. I am not kidding, but I felt from all the people who were in there, I was one of the youngest of the voters. There was a young girl in front of me, and she said she was confused on where she was supposed to vote. A voting assistant or helper, what ever you call them asked her what her ID said. She said she had 2 of them, 1 in Gilbert and 1 in Chandler. Both cities are within 15 miles of me. He asked her why she had 2 and I never heard her answer.

    Back to the topic of the elderly. I would guesstimate that 90% were older than I am and they had their walkers and oxy carts and needed some assistance. One of the older gentleman said in all his years he had never seen a country so divided as this one is now. I noticed he was wearing a WWII baseball cap. He said he hoped that his vote counted so we could get this country back on line again. He was voting a Republican ticket. I wanted to walk over and thank him for his prior service to our country but I felt it would not be appropriate to do so. I think that the elderly are tired of all the lies and corruption and just want our country the way it should be-without all the corruption and hankey pankey that goes on. I do too!!!!

    The wife and I voted early. No line or problems.
    I went to the polling place about 4:40 pm today. The line was fairy short and all was peaceful.
    Peaceful voting is the norm around these parts.

    I voted early by mail in ballot. And so did my wife. I voted Republican and she voted Democrat. So I guess that we canceled each other out. But what has been happening after the results came in and Trump was declared the winner. It seems that the liberals just could not except the vote. And they've been protesting the results all over the country. And for the most part its been peaceful in most places. But I've also seen reports that Economic Terrorist George Soros has been paying some of the protesters to cause trouble in some places as well as he did during the campaign at Trump rallies. And it seems that if liberals don't get their way that they just don't know how to except the out come of things.

    Not much happening in good ol' Iowa. My African-American cousin says she has been spit on, however. This disgusts me, I really hope it is a very isolated incident. She seems terrified that this is going to become the norm. I think she's wrong, I pray she's wrong. I guess if people like us see anything like that happen, we're going to have to be the ones to step up and stop it. Otherwise we're not any better than the pukes rioting and looting.

    I'd like to know the complete version as to why anyone would spit on anyone else?

    I've considered that. I feel that it's up to us to stop that kind of behaviour regardless of the situation. If its real racism we have to stand against it. If its something that's been provoked, we have to step in as well or its going to be used against us. Either way I intend to be able to hold the moral high ground against all comers.

    I cant understand the hatred yall speak about.

    I guess I live in SmallTown USA, and in my world this hatred and mean attitudes just does not manifest itself,

    Now I admit, I was a little uncomfortable over the weekend , while being in Nashville TN a couple days,
    Didn't see anything to cause my discomfort, just TOO many people . Maybe they were more fast paced than I'm used to, and that kept me on my toes.

    I have (most) always lived in small towns, and am uncomfortable in cities. I tend to look at the people that I meet and nod. In the cities that would be an intrusion I guess.

    I'm the same way, VT. My job has taken me to a whole bunch of places I really don't like. I always have to keep in mind that at home most everyone thinks like I do, but reality is that the rest of the world isn't necessarily like that.

    Yeah, my job used to take me all over the US (and other countries too). My company built machine tools, a lot of them for grinding on/in bearings. A large portion of those bearing plants are not in cities. Was surprised at first how well I got along with factory workers from all over the country.

    I delivered steel to a business in a big city and I asked where was a store I could get a pack of cigarettes at. I was told there was a store at the next corner on the street but I couldn't go there. I asked why was that. He said I was the wrong color of skin and I should be aware that the fire department doesn't come around here without a police escort.

    I stopped for lunch and saw a driver from the company so I went and sat with him. He was a black man. I sure got some looks for just sitting with a black man for lunch. He and I got to talking about racism and ignorant hatred. This was back in the mid seventies in Ohio.

    I think in the last almost 8 years this country has stepped back 50 years concerning racial disharmony.
    I sure hope people can get along better with each other in the coming years. I think if the instigators can be stopped we have a good chance of healing.

    I had a vaguely similar experience in a bearing plant in Alabama in the mid-'80s. I was introduced to a black machine operator, mainly so I could be amazed by the size of his hand when we shook. Come lunchtime he came and sat beside me. The white guys were startled - apparently it was the 'white' table - but made no, ah, adverse comments. He was a little over 6 feet tall and maybe 5 feet wide, and not fat. A NamVet; we talked about fishing. I learned some about fishing with a bob.
