    Not likely.

    99 percent white, upscale community,predominatley republican, lots of land owners, cattle,horses, forest,and lots of people with guns.

    If no one starts any trouble, there wont be any.

    I could see it happening in Portland proper, in various "radical" neighborhoods, but not in the suburbs. But, just in case, maybe I should buy that AR-15 in the next week or so.

    I live in probably one of the wealthiest counties in TX (Collin County), at least in the N. Texas area so I doubt there will be much civil unrest up here since most of the time the rioters seen are not in an area like I live in, if the worst case hits as you OP.

    My concern is driving to work I go through what seemed to be "Hillaryville" during the primaries. I have a feeling that West Plano might be a little touchy as it has a very large population of yard signs offering hope.

    Not likely!
    Our neighborhood is relatively new and has a number of police cars that are parked here...homeowners, actually.

    Stay armed......stay safe!

    Won't see anyone rampaging the streets busting off caps around here. Some neighborhoods have all the fun.

    Not where I live but I'll be prepared just in case. Someone might get the bright idea to come and take mine because a certain person who was promising to do it for them did not get elected.

    Are you kidding? in the Lynchburg area? The sidewalks get rolled up @ 5pm

    But given the Lynchburg panic mentality, there will be National Guard walking the streets, and every LEO will be on shift.

    While I don't foresee anything in my neighborhood. I can see problems in Richmond proper, as well as some of the smaller community's surrounding Richmond. As I said before, my weapons will be cocked and locked just in case.

    I wouldn't expect any rioting in my suburb, but if there is the wife and I are ready. If anything happens it would likely be in certain parts of the nearest town and possibly in cities like Raleigh and Durham.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Not where I live, but where both my wife and I work, there will be riots if Obama loses. My car was hit with rocks and bottles during the WTO riots when I was trying to go pick up my wife from work.

    Nope, out in the country here.Trouble seems to disappear in these woods.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    I think the chances are slim of a total uprising and complete civil unrest, however, I expect some type of rebellion from certain genders and races. No matter what, I feel I'm prepared for the worst, just hoping for the best.

    I'm close to New Orleans

    I'm just across the lake from K-ville where anything is a good excuse to go on a looting spree. I'm always prepared.
