Wanted to drop in just to see how the celebration was going. I see its going well. I think the OP has some decent points. And while I wasnt sure that Romney was going to win, I was optimistic.

It was pretty apparent that as the swing states were close and others that were 'in play' werent which way this was going.

While I dont feel 'lied' to necessarily, it is a bit disappointing to see that it was close or within 1 or 2 points that it really wasnt. One point I want to make is that Romney got fewer votes than McCain did, and that is surprising.

So, to the quote above...I have decided to disconnect...completely. Im not listening to any of it, left or right. I have pretty much given up. While time may change that, I figure we have a country that wants a larger government in everyone's life. I have to live with that now, and Im willing to accept that.

As long as I dont get persecuted for holding opposing views from the majority of the country, I'll go on living my life and leave the governing to those that think the only solution is higher taxes, printing money and presidential fiat.

I dont honestly think there will be another presidential election in my lifetime. Again, Im willing to accept it.

I'll drop by off and on still, but for all intents and purposes the takers now outnumber the producers in this country. Congrats, you all won! Enjoy!
