I know there are a few of you: whether Tea Partiers, fervent supporters, or those who quietly cast their vote for what they believe in. I just wanted to say: I sincerely sympathize.
I remember how disgusted and frightened I was when Bush was elected. And re-elected.
I won’t ask you to stop complaining. I know I didn’t stop for about 8 years.
But the thing is, even if things do go very badly (as they did under Bush), you get to try again in four years.
Two actually – mid-terms don’t get the attention of a presidential race, but they are just as important. Congress actually has more power to change things for better or worse in many areas.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that its an election. One that didn’t go your way. It’s really NOT Armageddon, I swear.
So please, take a keep breath and calm the fuck down.
If you want, prepare for next time. I know I will be.
That’s how democracy works.
