Election Woes

I just got back from voting and I want to thank all the responsible citizens who have been standing in lines for HOURS voting early. It took me about a half hour from start to finish!

For me, it's hard to get excited about this. It was another year of voting against candidates by voting candidates I think are only slightly better; the old "lesser of two evils" dilemma. My man went out when Ron Paul withdrew.

I'm trying not to get depressed about it, but I feel like my generation is witnessing the decline of a great nation into... I don't know. It seems like the bad guys are always winning, mainly because they don't follow the rules, or else they'd be good guys. Without integrity, as people, as leaders, as a nation, we have nothing else.

(And so, his words, while still important to him, fell on the deaf ears of the Godless hoards, and there was no echo above the din of a depraved nation.)

You were so spot on with this post!

Oh hi! *waves*

Just checking in to say hello and see what you're up to. Good to see you're having a new start at life. Great you got to give up the job that consumed you in a negative way. I just started a new job too this week. *Praises* !!!


P.S. I live in yoville on facebook now. LOL I'm all or nothing too. I'm neglecting LJ until my Yoville obsession wears off.
