Re: Speculation on what to expect now
I'm reading all the posts here today, because I'm still just sitting here shaking my head. Demographics aside, I still can't quite wrap my head around this election. Regarding the U.S. Senate seat, I voted for McCain's opponent. She had served two terms in the U.S. House, and I liked what she had to say. After all, it seemed to me (at least) that it was time to say out with the old guard. C'mon, the guy is 80 years old. He's had his chance to "shape" policy. I wanted some new blood in there. But two hours after the polls closed, McCain had scored a decisive victory.
What to expect now? Hell if I know. It still seems like the same old, same old. Democrats think the Republicans are the anti-Christ. (One of my FB friends actually posted that on her page.) Republicans still think Democrats are the spawn of Satan. It sounds like the mantra remains the same. Hate on both sides of the aisle.
There was so much name-calling and bashing during this election, I'm not exactly sure what the heck Trump will do. Maybe that's why I'm not quite sure what to make of this ...
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
