Oh ... Really?

What day is it?

I voted three weeks ago. For me, today is just another day ... except it is not. At the end of it, I will find out if the country that I know and love will continue to be strong and proud, a nation of self-sufficient, independent and free people, or if we will embrace a new way ... one in which we depend on the government for our basic needs, and cede responsibility for ourselves and our well-being to our socialist care-takers.

Obama's insane plans to "fix" our healthcare system (which isn't broken in the first place) and his outrageous energy plan that will leave us all in the dark after he puts the coal companies out of business, and his plans for a "national security force," his Truth Squads and his vow to take our guns, leaves me feeling quite ill. Now, if he does win this thing and is like most politicians and does not keep his campaign promises, we might be OK. But someone ... some unknown entity ... has bought and paid for this election. We will find out who and what that is probably shortly after the inauguration, and just before they put the stranglehold on our country.***

So, today, for the first time in my life, if I may paraphrase a bit, I am very much NOT proud of my country or half of my fellow Americans that will ask for this to be brought down upon us. I will say this ... I hope, and pray, with every fiber of my soul, that one day my Obama-worshiping friends can say to me, "I told you so!" but I deeply fear that the reverse will be the case. The best situation, of course, is the one in which Obama goes back home to Chicago to continue practicing his corrupt, radical politics there, and our nation continues to be the proud, free and independent people that she has always been.

I am not going to glue myself to the TV tonight, or internet news streams, or blogs, or Twitter tonight. We are going out to dinner and hopefully forget about all this mess for a little while. We can face the future tomorrow, whatever it may be.

***No, I am not going to cite sources to back up these statements. I am not going to waste my time and energy on something you can easily Google for yourselves. I have found, over the course of this election campaign, that linking to sources is useless ... people do not click the links. If they do, they don't read the article. If they do read it, they don't believe it. If they do believe it, they excuse it and continue to support the slimeball anyway, even in the face of factual evidence of his corruption.

Nice post. I completely agree...I really hope all the Obamaniacs are right and I'm wrong.

But I'm not counting on it.
