It may come down to if he declares himself the winner with a presidential decree or if the votes are actually counted. The citizens of the United States will lose no matter which way it goes.

I do not know whether he is an overwhelming favourite, but an incumbent president is usually a favourite to keep his seat.

With his latest endeaver in same sex marriage, it might be almost certain he has Liberal votes. 
 
I am wondering what was his real intention to be the first president to approve the same sex marriage.
 
It sure was a great timing though. Right around the election.

Next he will release all the US oil reserves to try and lower gas prices in hopes of more votes.

One thing for sure, the Wall St. will cheer his re-election.
 
Market has jumped nicely since Obama took over.
I suppose we will find out how far Feds will go to prop this economy up.

I'm hoping we see a Jimmah re-election repeat...
In other words, a complete blowout.

Most of 401K holders did rather well. How can the market not go up when there is a trillion dollars of free money being pumped into the economy? The problem is that the monetary easing of this magnitude will not go away quietly.
 
As for the price of ammo, I am not sure if there will be another surge as we have experienced around the last election. I realize that there is massive hoarding in the process, but soon as people realize there are no shoratages of ammo, things will go back to normal. At least, that is what I hope for.

I have heard through the grapevine the military is scrounging up all of the 5.56 ammo they can get like they did before Operation Iraqi Freedom.
This is going to drive cost of that up wont it?

If that was the case, the ammo price will certainly move up, but is that the fact or just rumor?
 
I have not heard or read anything to substantiate the story.
 
Will it be possible that US Military is preparing for Iranian conflict to break out in the near future?

At this point, it is rumor but the guys I am hearing this from are reliable and have there finger on the pulse of this industry.
 
It is a definite possibility that we are gearing up for something but its hard to say at this point.
With everything going on like North Korea's missile testing it could be a lot of things.

This is the latest on the 5.56mm ammo shortage.
 
"That's what they shoot in their M4/M16 rifles. They probably just bought bulk so they got a better deal. They surely used up a lot of stored ammo reserves in the middle East and its training."
