Here it is, the day after the election and I’m moderately depressed. Not so much so that I need medication but enough that life has a hopelessness that pervades my interior regions.
|Not sure which is me, but both seem sad.|
I really thought Mitt Romney had a good chance to begin a change in the way our country is being led. And, I guess he did have a chance but it wasn't as good as some of us had hoped. It seems that a majority of our friends and neighbors want to have a government that is more involved in our personal lives that I would like.
|I think he would have made a good/great President.|
When Clinton was elected for the second time I had a little more hope because he had signaled that he was willing to let go of some of the most egregious parts of his political plans so he could build a coalition with the other side to get things done. But I have seen nothing in the workings of the current president (or his cohorts in the Senate -- you listening Harry) to indicate that he gives one iota of thought to what is good for the country or for the place he will have in history.
|Our country is sort of like this plane -- headed for trouble.|
My only hope is that the people of our nation will eventually recognize bad government and decide it is time to make changes. Of course, maybe they have decided that a “freedom based” government is old fashioned and bad for their lives. Then the decisions of the current electorate make a little more sense but my personal feeling of hopelessness increases.
|Samuel the Lamanite -- just before the chapters listed below.|
If things continue on the current road, I believe we may see a recurrence of the experiences described in the Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi chapters 6-7. And the one good thing about that might be the coming of the Lord (for the Second time).
Don’t worry, tomorrow I will be better and the sadness of this experience will dissipate. Hope you have a better day and can see a bright future ahead.
