I'll admit it. I'm a coward. I'm not watching the election returns because it's too nerve wracking. The stakes in this election are higher than for any other presidential election in my life. And not only the presidency but the stakes for Congress are high as well. For the first time in my life I'm actually fearful of the outcome of a presidential election. When Obama ran in 2008 I was apprehensive about a victory for him because I knew he was way more radical than he was letting on. Still, I didn't know precisely how he'd govern so I wasn't scared of the idea of an Obama presidency. Now I know what Obama in power looks like, and that's why I'm scared, not just apprehensive, this time around. Four more years of Obama can damage this country almost beyond repair. I really believe that and that's why I'm too nervous to watch the returns. I will find out tomorrow who won tonight. I will listen to talk radio on the way to work and I will learn if sanity resides in the White House or if the lunatics are still in charge of the asylum.
