Okay, there are a lot of people upset with the results of yesterday’s election (to which my main question is: you’re really surprised? Really?) And I’m certainly not thrilled, but I also don’t think it’s the end of the world. America isn’t really in tip-top shape at the moment, and yes I would really like some healthcare, but we’re far from being the worst place on earth. For all the media bullshit and all the screaming going on from our television sets, I like being an American and am proud to be one. We’ll be fine. No matter what anybody’s views are, I think we can agree that everyone just wants the best for this country, even if everyone doesn’t agree on the methods. Nobody’s Hitler. I’ll just leave you with some words from a much smarter man than me:
"[We are not here to] suggest that times are not difficult and that we have nothing to fear. They are and we do. But we live now in hard times, not end times…
Yet, with that being said, I feel good. Strangely, calmly good, because the image of Americans that is reflected back to us by our political and media process is false. It is us through a funhouse mirror, and not the good kind that makes you slim and taller — but the kind where you have a giant forehead and an ass like a pumpkin and one eyeball…”
