Election Day

Tomorrow is election day. A day so many of us have been awaiting, and dreading. This election has seen so much rancor, so much passion, it is difficult to measure by any past standards. Tomorrow it will be over in one way, and I suspect, just starting in others.

I will not be joining the line at our local polling place. Not because I do not want to vote, but rather as I have already voted. I stopped by the Waimea Community Center last week and voted early.

This election is too important and life has a way of disturbing any plans. Not that my vote will decide the presidency, that will have already occurred by the time polls close in Hawaii. But rather it is too important to me personally. I can not abide the thought of not having voted in this election, an election where so much is at stake for our country.

There is only one acceptable outcome tomorrow… That Trump loses hard. That our country rejects hate, rejects divisiveness, rejects racism, and rejects the lies. I, like so many others, will be watching the election results very closely tomorrow, sweating the results from each battleground state. It will be a long day.

  1. Election results put a knot in my stomach that won’t go away. Guess I don’t know my fellow Americans at all.

  2. Fascinating election.

    A Wall Street Crony vs a Fascistic Demagogue.

    Simple fact is the Democrats have lost the working class. They lost Michigan and the Rust Belt which they have considered their birthright.

    Ultimately the Democrats will win the demographic war and turn the nation into their dream, California. An impoverished Latin American style nation with gated communites containing a small European elite.

    in the short term, populism is the winning strategy. Indeed, the concept of placing of American workers first is such a radical departure from the norm that it should prove viable for a couple years until swamped by demographics.
