I'm pretty sure we're gonna be fine, but nothing magical is going to happen. Just like the past 4 years, where nothing really bad happened, and nothing really good happened. Because its been a long time since anything actually happened to America besides people making a fuss over fairly small things. The same would have been true if Romney won, he just seems like a bit of a jerk to me, and I'd rather have a chill president that does nothing than an aggressive president who does nothing.

Obama is slightly ahead, likely to get about 50% of the vote.

Does no one else think it's odd that the voting populous is divided almost exactly in half?

Nah, it's pretty much an inevitability in a first past the post system.

If you followed before the actual election, they've kind of been expecting it to happen. It was an incredibly close vote.

Really I dont understand why it was so damn close. I don't see how anyone could think Romney was a good choice for president, but hey whatever.

It's designed to divide the country in half? Why not just make 2 different countries rather than forcing everyone to compromise? I'm not really asking for an answer to that question, just saying is all.

Because if you were going to start dividing states based on people's political opinions then you would end up with 7 billion different countries on this planet.

because people can't afford to move, and then you have two single party countries that would find out that single party systems are even worse

That's one hell of an exaggeration. Most people don't do independent research and form all of their own political opinions, they jump on board with their party's beliefs(for various reasons).

Besides, the libertarian approach of letting each state decide their policies would provide better options than what we have now.

There are thousands of issues to have a stance on and everyone has a stance on them, whether they know it or not. Given the number of issues to address, the chance of two people overlapping on everything is pretty much nil.

Seriously, wtf man? I'm not even trying to imply that every single person should have their own country. Obviously there would be some compromise in some areas, but not nearly as contrasting as the compromises between republicans and democrats.

If you're going to start saying 'We shouldn't have to compromise' then you've started something that you can't stop. Compromise is inherent in democracy, and that's tough.
