I hope that the next four years go quickly (and smoothly). And I hope that in time, a future candidate who I can enthusiastically back and support will rise up for the next election.But in the mean time, I think the best way to look at this election is to not put all your trust in one person to change your life and existence. The President is not a god, nor life coach or counselor. The President cannot fix your life for you. Albeit that the President can invoke change in our country that we may/may not agree upon, but the fact is, usually those changes do not trickle down to our day to day well being. That may sound like a naive statement, but sadly it's the best I can hope for. Dear President, please try not to f*ck things up too badly, ok?
So yes, despite my feelings about the current candidates, I did vote. It's my right, and yours. It should be exercised. However, I believe when doing so, I looked something like this while casting my ballot...
Good luck America.
We need it.
