Judgment Day

Well, there may not be fire and brimstone hailing down from the heavens, but yeah, it's a pretty big day. Today millions of Americans go to the polls to decide... the future of their nation.

Admittedly, I'm not hugely thrilled with either candidate. They both have their flaws, whether it be a questionable economic policy (Obama), a questionable foreign policy (McCain), etc. etc. etc. etc. The point is, neither one is the new Lincoln or FDR... but they both represent a hope for a brighter future. And right now, that future is pretty dark.

It's been a rough eight years - at the turn of the millenium, things were really looking up - we had a budget surplus, a rapidly growing economy, and, well, no wars. I'll admit - things weren't perfect, and the seeds had been sown for many things, including our current economic troubles, even before then. But, well... things have gone pretty badly in these last eight years.

So here's to a brighter future. Let's hope that America makes the right choice... and that whatever the choice be, that it all works out okay.
