Well, folks... here we are.
Election Day 2012.
I just voted.
Straight Republican... across the board.
Hated to do it, folks...
Hated voting for my long-serving NYS Senator Bill Larkin.
Hated voting for the GOP candidate for my NYS Assembly seat.
Hated voting for my RINO Congresswoman Nan Hayworth.
Hated voting for the GOP judgeship candidates simply because New York State forbids any sort of meaningful policy campaigning for judicial positions.
The system is what it is. Unless and until the Tea Party takes over the GOP the GOP will be simply the lesser of two evils when it comes to our corrupt two-party system.
No, folks... going to a multiparty system wouldn't help - it would actually make things worse. Human nature is the problem and until more good people get more involved in the nuts and bolts of party politics we're stuck with the unpleasant choices given us by the current leaderships of the two parties.
In any case... if today's vote confirms my hope that the lesser of two evils wins...
That Romney-Ryan win...
and if the GOP can recapture the Senate...
Then America will gain a short breathing space from which to regroup.
Folks... even under the best possible scenario... saving America is a long-shot. (That's how far we've fallen...)
If Romney-Ryan are sworn in to office come January... if the Senate becomes a Republican Senate once again... count on me to be just as honest, just as cynical, and just as biting as I've been during the past four years.
Anyway... if you haven't voted yet, go out and do so. And then...
