The election is finally here one week from tomorrow and I can hardly wait for it to be over with. I am guessing you are with me on this one. There has been so much doom and gloom in this election and it has made our moods less than enjoyable to be around. I would like to think that everyone will mellow out when it is over but the complaining will continue I am sure. No matter who wins, the other side will be upset. Let's all mellow out a minute.

We seem to think that if the other person wins it will destroy our country...I cry bull crap. The president does not have the kind of power that the candidates or many voters think they have. Whoever wins still has to get things through Congress and all the other bodies of government and that is not that easy. We need to remember that WE actually have the power and it starts at the local level. That is where the laws and changes that directly effect you take place. Get educated and learn what is on the ballot in your community. You have the power to make change in your town or city. It all starts there. We will survive whoever ends up leading our country. The world is not going to end because of who we elect to the oval office. It is important but not so much that your life is going to just be hell. We have had bad presidents before and lived through it. Maybe whoever is elected will not be as bad as you think and believe it or not...you will survive. Let's get through next Tuesday and then let's try to move on be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. God bless us all.
