Before the Vote

I am sitting here watching the Giants game in the quiet, coziness of my home.  I just finished seeing two commercials back to back — one for Clinton and one for Trump. I couldn’t tell you which one was which at this point.  Between social media, TV and just being in the outside world, all we hear about is this election.  I can only tell you that at this point in time I only know how much they hate each other.  I will not be able to tell you one position that either of them has.  I am just feeling depressed and anxious.  Depressed for the ruination of my country and anxious about what lies ahead.  It seems to me that either way the American people are doomed.  To think with the millions of intelligent people living in this country we cannot get anyone else to choose from.

I know that my feelings are shared by most Americans.  They are seriously thinking about where they will move to.  The rest of the world is laughing at us now.  I wish I could fast forward to Wednesday when this will all be behind us.  I’m not saying that we will be better off.  We will be a country either run by a criminal or a very unpredictable business man with his own agenda.  I wish everyone peace and tranquility and hope that we can find joy in other aspects of our lives and not focus on the politicians that are responsible for destroying our beautiful world.
