Today is Election Day in the United States. It’s the midterm elections and unless you’ve been living on a rock, you’ve probably been barraged with countless ads with mud being slung everywhere, outrageous lies, craftily edited video, and just gross buffoonery from both sides of the political equation. According to all polls on all networks vying for ad revenue, every race is a 50/50 race and too close to call, even those without opponents.
I’ve shut the television off. I’m avoiding news sites. I’m not talking about it.
It’s not like anyone is going to have an answer anytime soon and most likely if someone doesn’t win their going to throw some stupid hissy fit about compromised polls, illegal activity, and corruption at all levels of the election system, but just you watch, they will have zero evidence to back up these claims.
Our family voted by mail in plenty of time before the Pima County deadline. We’ve done our duty. I hope you did yours.
