These are the ten spheres of existence out of nothing. From the spirit of the living God emanated air, from the air, water, from the water, fire or ether, from the ether, the height and the depth, the East and West, the North and South.

Sure, it’s one thing to say you support a candidate, it’s another thing to say you think they’ll actually win, but it’s something altogether different when you’re ready to put your money where your mouth is. That’s why I would trust the odds of how much money people are willing to bet on a candidate even more than I would the latest poll numbers.
Let’s look at the odds of Gingrich winning the presidency according to the money being bet on Intrade.
The money has Gingrich at a 6.3% chance of becoming president. Personally, I think that’s a bit high, he’s a longshot to win the GOP nomination alone and I don’t think he has a prayer winning enough Independent voters to beat Obama, but for the true believers, how do you like these apples?
How do you like the prospects of a $906 profit on a $94 bet??? That’s a return of over 9.5 times what you invested!!!
Now if you’re a true-believing Gingrich supporter, sure, your first priority financially should be in donating to his campaign, but if you really believe President Gingrich could become a reality, those are odds you’d almost be crazy not to take advantage of.
