This has been a difficult political/election season for me, as I think it has been for many people. I even woke up up tears early one morning a few weeks ago because it seems as if there is no civil discourse left in America. I write blog posts in my head all the time about political issues. I never actually write them down because the truth is that I’m too liberal for the conservatives and too conservative for the liberals. I know that no matter how hard I try to craft perfect sentences, the nuance of what I’m trying to say will get lost. I’m just not willing to engage in (and invite) the vitriol that’s all over the Internet.
I actually just wrote a list of much of what I’ve been thinking about (politically) over the past several months for this blog post. Then I reconsidered and took it out. I’m frankly not even willing to list even a hint of what I’m thinking about. I saved the list though so if you want to see it, let me know and I’ll email it to you. If you’d like to discuss politics with me in person or on the phone, bring it up. I’ll probably cry because well, I cry easily anyway, I’m pregnant, and these things often make me sad more than anything else. But if you can put up with the tears, I’d be glad to talk to you.
I think we’ll probably all be grateful when this is all over, regardless of who wins.
