The Country
As we all celebrate the end to the pointless political mailers and the annoying calls from pollsters and action groups, let us look forward to getting back together as a country regardless of who wins. Congratulations and thank you to all who used their privilege to vote. If you were legally able to vote and didn't, just remember you have no right to complain about your political leaders until the next time that you do your civic duty and vote.

My children taught me a powerful message the other day as we were discussing some political things over dinner when my middle child suggested we decide now to pray for whoever wins that they might be more honorable and good than they might be otherwise. God Bless America my friends.

I will be glad to replace the political calls with the extended car warrantee and Cardmember services calls. Also it is about time I took them up on the free vacation at Marriott and Hilton as promised.

Funny thing is, I haven't received one political call, however, Eve from Discovery Health, calls about my Apple Cloud (which I have no Apple products, and my car warrantee calls have never stopped and have actually increased.......sigh. However, I will be glad for this election to be over as it is wearing me out. While I hope the person I voted for wins, if not, I will still get up tomorrow and come to work and do what I always do......:)

Everyone have a great day!!!

I will just be glad to watch TV without having to hear all the candidates tear each other apart!

Yesterday, we saw a Septic Tank pumper truck that had a sense of humor.
Besides the company name, they had their slogan, “WE DELIVER POLITICAL PROMISES,”

Hope the TV, emails and flyers come to a quick halt.

I don't believe this will happen, the divide will continue to grow and grow as long as we keep electing the same clods over and over

I worry too that large chunks of the electorate, left and right, seem to have little interest in "getting back together as a country".

I worry about that too, but we can only choose how we will react and behave and do our best to be a positive influence on others.

Weird thing that I've noticed in my subdivision - only one neighbor that's put up an election signs, unlike my daughter's neighborhood (same suburb) where many houses have "sign gardens" Can't decide if that means anything or not, but it's really odd.

We have a mainstream media and big tech industry that are keenly interested in, invested in, and actively promoting divisiveness, not unity. As long as that continues, coming together will be extremely elusive.

in today's volatile world and everyone gets offended by everything, no way would I put up any type of political sign at home, place a sticker on my car, or wear an article of clothing supporting any candidate. too many people see those as targets and feel the need to do something destructive. sadly, even in the small town where I live...

I see it as a double-edged sword....yes, people are too easily offended, but it has become a national pastime to see how many people one can offend and hate.

I had an "I Will Vote 11-3-2020" sign in my yard. I'm with Happy that showing support causes reactions that raise my anxiety to levels I don't want to deal with. And that, imho, is the saddest comment on the divisiveness that permeates the (not) United States of America.

Yep. I placed my vote - but that's as far my outward political stance goes. I'm not even comfortable raising political discussions with members of my own family.

my BIL & SIL have hosted thanksgiving for 20+ years...this year, if "his" presidential candidate does not win, they will not host, as other family members have stated they will be voting the other candidate, and my BIL says he will no longer talk to anyone he knows voted for the other guy if the other guy wins, won't even go around them...so even if someone else hosts turkey day, he won't go...boy, family gatherings are going to be a blast...oh, did I mention that at definitely 1, and possibly 2, of his sons voted the other guy?

yeah, good times...I may start going out of town for every holiday

I agree with you, Sarah!!

I loathe - and don't participate - in political discussions.

If i had BIL & SIL like that i would tell them that i supported the side that they did not like just to get out of what should be a mess of a thanks(?)giving.

I loathe political arguments. Political discussions are fine. We can agree or disagree, but it should always be civil. I have very good friends that I'm able to have political discussions with that are at the complete opposite end of the political spectrum from me, and that's OK.

Happy....just curious....but if his guy wins, then he's fine with all members of the family, even though their opinion of his guy (and their guy) is obviously unchanged?

I can just add....when neither guy is your guy, and you are as put off by one as you are the other...it can be a lonely place...at least in my part of the world.
