Today is one of the most anticipated and heated days in America... Election Day! Every 4 years we Americans throw all logic and civility out the window and scream like starving animals at one another over who should run our country for the next 4 years.
I went this morning and cast my vote and I hope you do as well. This blog isn't meant to try and persuade anyone at the last minute or disparage any candidate or party. I just wanted to take a moment to ask you to get out there and vote and next time, let's try to keep it a little more civil.
It amazes me how quickly people who know jack shit about politics turn into political experts when an election is coming. Now I know it seems everyone knows lots about politics because of all the statistics and "facts" they quote left and right but a HUGE percentage of those people are just regurgitating whatever they were told by whichever political pundit they support.
Democrats make Republicans out to be the devil and vice versa and nobody is willing to listen to any OPINION other than their own. And yes, these are opinions. Saying "Blah blah will do a better job as President" is NOT A FACT, it's an opinion. And many of those statistics you love to quote and throw in the other party's face are tiny pieces of a larger picture that, when looked at on their own, do look bad but should be seen as part of the whole.
I'm done ranting and I'm glad I got my vote counted and that these damn political posts and commercials are going away for another 4 years. That gives us 1460 days to learn how to discuss politics like educated people and stop flinging poo and screaming like primates. I'm not holding my breath but we'll see...
