My thoughts the day before Election Day

You can feel the excitement in the air!  Tomorrow is Election Day and I am quite ready for it to be done with. I'm tired of the negativity, of the finger pointing, and of politics as usual.

I am ready for President Obama to have a second term and be able to continue to bring about what he tried to do in his first term, but couldn't get any cooperation.  Who knows, maybe with this term he won't get any either.  I like to wish that the "we will make him a once term President" brigade will see their folly and actually do the job that they were elected to do.  

I'm not going to lie and say that I'm not concerned that President Obama could lose this.  I'm not going by the polls because I think polls are dubious as best.  I'm concerned because of the underlying racial tones that aren't so hidden anymore.  There's an anger that runs deeper, a hate that those against Obama can't hide.  As a woman, I am deeply concerned about how far back we will be set back with a man like Mitt Romney, who I perceive as a man who will never see a woman as his equal, running the Country 

I would like to see the return of the Moderates....both Republican and Democrat.  When we are polarized, we cannot compromise.  United we stand, divided we fall.
