Whew! The election is FINALLY over. It's time for us to get back to hating each other for our race, religion, and sexual orientation...you know, the important stuff. I'm 28 and I've only been politically aware / old enough to vote in the last three elections, but it seems to me that in addition to the news discourse getting nastier and nastier, we are acting nastier and nastier towards each other. Over what? Politics?
Call me a cynic, but I am under the general impression that my life isn't going to change much no matter who is elected president. Think about it: every politician knows swinging too far in either direction is political suicide (besides, politicians always vow to dismantle whatever the other side does when they take back control).
I need everyone to calm down and be sensible, and go back to hating your neighbor because he's black, not because he's a Democrat.
