Five More Days until Election Day and it's time to continue to move forward, not back!

I can't believe that it's only five more days until Election Day!!  It seems like the Election Seasons are getting longer and LONGER, kind of like how Christmas decorations are out before Halloween in the stores.  I have to admit that I have not been as into it as past election seasons. 

I suppose most of it is due to the fact that I have always been a supporter of our President and did not waver in that support.  I wasn't always happy with how things were going and was completely frustrated by the lack of "Change" in his first term, but I do not think that failure is on him. I believe it fell squarely in the shoulders of a broken system and a lack of compromise.  Regardless, I have maintained my support for him.

Now is not the time to go backwards and that's where I believe we would be headed if Mitt Romney becomes President.  Everything that President Obama had to fight tooth and nail for would be picked apart and left on the curb.  As a woman, I am especially concerned of what my place in this world could become, considering the lack of education and compassion that the far Right seem to have for women's issues.

All I am saying is that I don't believe that President Obama has been given a fair chance to show how much he can shine.  My hopes are that with a second term, those that opposed him so much by spending more energy trying to make him a one term President will work with him and build this country back.  Instead of fighting, we need to come together.

That is my hope. That is my wish.
