Election Day is almost here. Won't it be GREAT!

MAYBE, we will be able to see yard sale signs again! If it were not for a driver and a navigator, we could have been a danger to the driving community.

SURELY we will stop getting those pre-recorded campaign messages. We have stopped answering the phone and let the recorder listen but our recorder forces us to play the WHOLE message before we can erase it. I now know another feature to insist on when this recorder dies.

HOPEFULLY, these blogs will return to "normalcy" or at least non-political normalcy. Shortly after the Republican convention flurry of political news, I was ready to return to the topics of "yesteryear"

In a way, it helped me breeze through the entries. I would read the initial blog, then move on because the responses were predictable and usually from the same responders, so I usually knew where they would go with the conversation.

Hopefully, election night will show a clear winner and we will not have to re-hash "chads" for several weeks.

amen but with these voting machine I'm sure it's not going to go smoothly.

I am ready for it to be over. I do believe though there will be alot of voter fraud and vote count drama that will keep us chatting for a while.

I agree with the other two comments . . . I am sure there will be drama.

WHOEVER wins, let it be more than 60/40. That should account for voter fraud, chads, glitches, etc. I hope.

If y'all want drama,go see "Our Town" and "Foreigner".

At least,we know up front the local actors are offering us make-believe and they are dedicated to giving us our money's worth with their hard work and talent.

i wonder who will be more disappointed when nothing really changes very much after the election; the supporters of the winning party or the supporters of the losing party.

and just think, wednesday we can crank up campaign 2012!!!!!

2012! Oh no!

Whoever wins in 2012 will have their hands full. They will have the chore of cleaning up 12 yrs of mess, because I guarantee the next 4 yrs will make the last eight look like paradise.

Everybody have a good night and know by this time tomorrow night you should know who your new President will be... I hope we have all made the right choices, if there really is a right choice.

Interestingly, Paul Harvey News had a report this morning that said in some study during the primaries that people's brainwaves were measured while they considered all the potential candidates.

The ones who had the lowest interest are the two we have running now. Kind of echoes what many of us had said, there is not much choice.

As Lazarus said, many of us will not be effected by either candidate. I will be glad for things to get back to business as usual.

The cycle will not end. As we approached the day of reckoning, we looked at our choices, and many of us found them lacking.

It is time for a change. Congress is borrowing more money than it is paying on the debt we already owe. The "Change" we got is not the change we bargained for and there is no resistance in Congress.

I don't like Washington. I don't like the cold in the air nor the hot air in Congress, but we must have a real choice in 2010.

I was as ready as you for the campaign season to be over, but: http://tennesseetaylorfor6th.blogspot.co...

Bedford County needs to weigh in.
