    DH is. He will not talk about anything else. I am so ready for this to be over. I have done my best to say that the world is not going to come to a crashing end if his candidate does not win, but I am afraid he will be seriously depressed if Obama wins.

    Yeah...now that election day is almost upon us, a lot of my FB friends have come out with a different message. Basically saying that as long as we are so divided as a country, that it doesn't really matter who wins, we will accomplish nothing.

    I wonder how we fix that though.

    We talked about that last night. That no matter who wins, half the country is going to be super upset. I think that is going to happen any time you have a candidate that is far to either the right or the left. Ideally someone who was more in the middle would be able to unite the country.

    I am ready for the election just to happen already. Looks like it will be a tight race. I hope it isn't tight, and that in each state there is an obvious winner, I really don't want a "hanging chads" repeat. My worry is that in some states the electoral college may go against the popular vote.

    I am worried if my opponent gets elected, because of what his views are, and the legislation coming down the pipe, both federally and internationally from the UN. If they pass and get in acted it will dramatically change our way of life. Causing things we do now to be illegal. I unfortunately have been running across a lot of these "bills" lately, things even from the Clinton admin that were executive order that I never knew about. Wish some would have been overturned by subsequent admins. It seems as society in the US is getting farther and father away from what my views are for the country, it is sad to me. I pray daily for our leaders, for Godly wisdom, and know that regardless of HOW things go, in my religious beliefs, God will work it all out. Maybe not how I want, but in an eternal manner for his glory.

    I'm super nervous about it. Like Bonita, I try to keep telling myself that the world will not come crashing to a halt if my candidate loses, but I can't help but worry.

    Haha. Just saw this. I share a FB account with DH and he would never go for this because he has become obsessed, but I would love it

    I figure we survived Bush/Cheney. How much worse can it be? *sigh*

    But ready for it be over, but nervous, too. Try as I might, I am not succeeding at embracing the other side.

    Back in 2000 I was actually hoping for this very thing to happen. I really hoped that a couple of independent-minded electors would say, "Gore clearly won the popular vote and I truly believe that, without a full recount in Florida, the American voters have no faith in the electoral votes from Florida, so I'm going to give my electoral vote to Gore." I sincerely hope that, whoever wins, there aren't any serious questions about it.

    I feel like there definitely will be though, no matter who wins. If Obama wins, the right will keep squawking about voter fraud. If Romney wins, the left will keep squawking about voter suppression. It gives me a headache just thinking about all of the collective teeth gnashing and hand wringing and finger pointing and pundit explaining BS that will happen no matter what happens tomorrow.
