This may sound odd, but I'm very pleased with election day. I'm particularly happy that we are now gridlocked, with one house and the White House controlled by one party, and the other house controlled by the other party. Why, you might ask? Doesn't that make government inefficient and unable to accomplish anything?
Exactly. Our two parties have failed to convince me that they have any desire or will to accomplish anything that actually benefits "we the people." So, with a gridlocked political system, hopefully we can maintain the status quo, and hold off any more Republican attempts at restricting our liberties and Democratic attempts at emptying our wallets for a few years until some candidates who propose real change emerge.
