About Last Night

So last night there was some sort of election in the US. I voted for a guy. The other guy won. But this isn't about that. This is a blog about what I learned in the aftermath.
1. The vast majority of America needs to take an economics course and a civics course. The level of insane claims I've seen from both sides in the past twelve hours is just mind boggling.
2. America is sick. What was once the greatest nation in the world is quickly crumbling. Now before you get the wrong idea, this observation has nothing to do with Mr. Obama defeating Mr. Romney. What it has to do with is the level of unbridled hate I saw being spewed by both sides. It actually made me sick to my stomach. Again I stress I'd be saying this even if Mr. Romney had won.
My point is this. I have always been a proud American. And as such I respect the process that elects a leader. This isn't a blog predicting gloom and doom because Mr. Obama was re-elected. All I'd like to say is that the future of the US depends on us, the people (especially my peers in their 20s). And if what I saw from us last night is any indication, I might be packing my bags to escape the inevitable collapse.
