Steelers v Redskins Game to Decide Obama v McCain Race

I realize that statement might not make logical sense, but its one of those statistical quirks.  In every Presidential election since 1936, with the exception of 2004, the winner of the last Redskins home game before the election has predicted the outcome.  If the Redskins win, the party currently holding the keys at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has retained control.  If the visiting team wins, the incumbent party loses.  Go Steelers!

    The economic system is very important. I believe more so than the political system. A capitalist economic system embraces more laissez-faire and equal opportunity, whilst a socialist economic system embraces more economic interventionism and equal outcome.

    If you think about it, even in a democratic political system the elected official becomes a dictator if the economy is socialistic and centrally controlled. A good example of this would be Adolf Hitler and NAZI Germany.
