Yes, hello there everyone; those of you who have stuck around to see what musings have traveled from my brain, through my fingers, to a computer screen near you.
I am finding it hard to find inspiration to blog lately, because, frankly, I feel defeated by this upcoming election. It has sapped my energy just thinking about the bind in which we, the American People, find ourselves. My largest energy sapper stems from the fact that almost half the population (your typical Obama supporters) doesn't realize we are in a bind, or they like their situation just fine, as they are the ones receiving taxpayer-funded swag that is being funneled their way, courtesy of our statist president and a Congress operating on cruise control and inertia.
The other half of the population (your typical Romney voter) is pissed that they are stuck with an empty suit like Mitt Romney, and are wondering how it is possible that we conservatives/Republicans got stuck with this perpetually smiling milquetoast. I just read a quote from someone tonight who said that many "independent" voters have no other choice but to consider themselves independent because if McCain and Romney are Republicans, then, "I'm not a Republican."
To borrow a phrase from my father, we are truly stuck during this election with choosing between an asshole and an idiot. I leave it up to you, dear reader, to decide who is whom.
So, early next month, it is pretty sad that our best case scenario is that Mitt Romney will be the new President-elect. If that is the best we can do, then I know why I feel defeated. Even if we win, we lose.
