The Nation - Extraordinary Election Season Nears Its Conclusion -

Posted: 11/02/2008 by Floyd in Labels:

On Tuesday the nation’s fretful, hopeful voters will finally have their say, and none of the rigorously calibrated polls or demographically incisive analysts out there can tell us with any certainty what will happen.

This New York Times article takes a look at this election season, and on Tuesday we will know who will be selected to run this great nation. Tuesday is the only day that matters, what will remind me of this is 'Joe the Plumber' who really turned out to be a plumber with no license and not making anywhere near $250,000 so Barack's tax decrease would affect him in other words Joe would get more under Obama than under McCain.

This will stick out for me after this thing is over, that someone would cheer because they are 'losing' money is beyond me and I would truly like to understand the motivation behind this. What worries me also is after all this is said and done will anything be accomplished? Will the division still be there after this election is over? Even now the McCain campaign is still using the to many democrats in government 'bogey man' and they continue to push this down the stretch. 

If democrats do not get a clear majority there will still be obstacles in the way of progress, I can only hope that after this thing is over we don't see this carried out in Washington.  What is scary is that I don't believe they will work together after Tuesday, both these candidates need to stress unity on their part so that we as Americans can work together to get beyond the crisis that affects most of our lives right now.

    It is way past time to bury the hatchet I think.
