Well, right now I'm looking at the projected results of the election and I have to say that it's looking bleak. No. Bleak doesn't even come close. I really don't see how McCain pulls this off unless ALL the pundants are wrong and after the 2000 debacle I can't see them making the same mistakes again. So as it stands right now, Obama is 53 short of the election being over. McCain is 156 short.
Forgive me if I don't break into "Hail to the Chief". I am tasting a surprising amount of bile in the back of my throat at the very thought of a confirmed if not admitted socialist in the whitehouse. From this point on EVERY freedom we have abridged for us, we will have earned. We, who profess to love life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, will have put a man in office that will push abortion "rights" to new lows, institute the "fairness doctrine", and make it impossible for small businesses to prosper and make it impossible for middle class people to start new small businesses. Mark me, if he institutes most if not all the things he's proposed we're headed for another depression. And socialism on a scale not seen since "the new deal".
And just in case everyone that voted against McCain, for whatever reason, wants to cry. Shut your pie hole. You earned this. I've found a company that prints I told you so buttons and I'm ready to provide shipping to anyone that wants to about higher taxes, lost rights, lousy end to the war, or wall street hitting 5k.
I know, I sound angry. Trust me, that word doesn't even come close.
Well, I stepped away and looked back at the tv and found that McCain was giving his consession speech. Now we all see if the prognostications that I have posted here will be made fact or fiction. Will my rantings prove out? Or will Obama renounce his socialist background.
Time will tell. And I've got a wheel barrow full of "I told you so!!!" signs to hand out. But God as my witness, I hope that I was wrong about this man.
