Election 2012: Wake me when it’s over.
I’m at a point where I’m just frustrated with the American political system; it seems like it’s going to be a not-particularly-hopeful situation no matter who wins. I’m more a fan of Obama than Romney myself, but even if he does win, is anything going to get done, especially if there’s a Republican majority in the House or Senate. If Romney wins, I think there is still some hope he’ll be a decent President if he skews centrist and doesn’t kowtow to the evangelicals and the Church of Ayn Rand. If he doesn’t, though, he’s not going to get a second term. It does seem like the far right wing is basically trying to turn back the clock fifty years without having a lick of sense that Dwight Eisenhower had. There’s really not a lot of vision from either side, though. Or if there is, there’s one that opposes it equally.
I can’t wait for the election to be over. For all the talk about those horrible policies enacted under Obama’s watch (such as NDAA or HR 347), I don’t think the Republicans really want to undo them either.
I’m not really thinking too clearly right now. I’m just crabby. It’s not even my country.
