Hurry Up

Is this election over yet? I don't know how much more of this din I can stand. Between the signs, the constant commercials and news coverage it seems like I'm swimming in the lies and half-truths of political campaigns.
For the most part I try to tune it out except for the humorous coverage of it all on SNL, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. This is the only palatable way to consume this madness for me. 

I have my moments of fear. Afraid of how the outcome will impact health care and social programs. This quickly leads to feeling overwhelmed. There is only so much I can do. I have write legislators, I can vote, I can educate those around me about how these issues impact me and others like me. In healthier days I was involved with the League of Women Voters and a campaign volunteer. But I don't exactly have much control over the outcome of these election or what happens after.

I'm left with my prayers and hopes that things will be okay and that this final week before election day goes quickly. 


  1. I too am anxious for all of the election hoopla to be over and done with. It wouldn't be so bad if politicians did as their mothers taught them when they were children.... if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

  2. I am tired of this campaigning stuff too. Just think only 1 week left. I am also very nervous about health care and disability too.
