What can you do if the candidate you are supporting doesn't win?

There is a lot of heated debate about the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin but realistically, besides voting for the candidate you would like to see as president, what can really be done if the opposer wins? Nothing. You can pack up and leave the US if you think it would be better but reality is, not everyone will be a winner here. You can't protest the president, it won't do a doggone bit of good, perhaps get you locked up. I just wondered if anyone thought about life after the election and it isn't who you thought it would be?

  • I'm gonna pray, yep pray a lot. Probably start going to church a lot more too, as only God can help us if Obama gets elected.

  • LOL I'm gonna pray a lot too! But besides that, you make a good point. Some will win and some will lose and ultimately there isn't anything we can do about it once it's over. Except pray LOL

  • If my candidate doesnt win, at least I get the satisfaction of watching the one who does leave everyone shaking their heads wondering where all the change went?

  • I'll do what us Americans normally do. Complain, complain, complain and hope we learn in the next election.

  • If Obama doesn't win I will seriously be concerned, esp cuz of Sarah Palin. She seems nice enough but not qualified under "normal" circumstances and times are very complicated right now.

  • I will continue to fight for my beliefs. Not on the large scale as the election but I will attend rallies, continue to sign petitions, continue to write letters to senators and continue to let my voice be heard. Regardless of who becomes President we still have an obligation to our children to make this a country worth living in and fighting for.
