Glum

Election day is here. It's time to go vote. I have zero excitement this time. I was excited to vote in the primary because I got to vote for somebody I truly stood behind. Believe it or not, I am still undecided. Not between the major parties, but do I vote McCain or do I choose a smaller party (Libertarian or U.S Taxpayer) that represents what I truly believe.

As Jeremiah once said, this election will decide if we are on the fast track to statism, or the slow (er) track.

I want off the track!

By the way, I did vote for McCain. even though Jeremiah tried to bribe me not to with Wendy's fries.

I really struggled for awhile with this election, feeling the same way, that I had no candidate that I felt like i could support. In the end I decided that McCain was better than the alternative, given the fact that the Independents or Liberatarians likely couldn't win. We need to work harder than ever to make sure our constitution is not desecrated by holding politicians accountable. It's a tough job, but we've got to do it. Thanks for your post, not always easy to talk politics these days.

LOL about the bribery of fries;) I think that most people feel there really isn't an 'ideal' candidate, ya know? It will be nice to all be over...

I struggled with my decision until the last as well. Ultimately, I knew it would not really matter much which way I voted. So I followed my independent streak.

McCain just conceded a few minutes ago.

I sent in my ballot a couple weeks ago, but had the same problem. I dislike both candidates, and couldn't get myself to vote for either. I ended up going with Bob Barr who I knew wouldn't stand a chance, but I couldn't give my vote to either of the other two!

Hi, Amie,

It's back! The Obama Anthem, I mean! I went to You-Tube and downloaded the video just in case, but you can get it.

I think a lot of people were bribed and with more than fries. At least the fries were real and not and empty package.

It will not be an easy road. If it were only as easy as he made it sound. McCain would have had an even rougher road with a Democratic Congress.

Well, as you know I'm pretty much as far left as they come, so I am happy with the outcome, but I totally understand your feelings of dissatisfaction! All I can say is I hope that you end up being happier in the next four years with the government than you expect.
