Voting starts in how many hours?

I really don't know. And I guess, technically, voting has been in progress for some time now, since there is lots of absentee/mail-in balloting occurring. All of the models show that Obama "can't lose" but I am not counting any chickens. I also find myself being far less gracious or respectful of the other side than I really imagined I would be. A few months ago, I thought that maybe there were two sides to every story, and that maybe there was no absolute truth, and that everyone was entitled to hold their viewpoint with dignity.

Now I sort of feel like saying "fuck that", because there IS an absolute truth. I am not certain that my views specifically are absolutely correct. Of course, not. But what I do believe is that there is no entitlement for those at the top - not any justifiable entitlement, anyway. Much, if not most of it came from "birth right" and that is simply not recognizable in any court of "fairness". That the human race promised fairness, I agree there is significant debate. But in a cosmic, karmic, logical sense, there is no way that the dynamics of our human world are obeying any law other than survival of the most selfish.

That's the tequila talquing.

Buenos Noches.
