election almost over, thank goodness

I am thankful it is finally election day and all this craziness is almost over.
I am tired of all the negative ads, wait I am tired of all the ads in general. Every commercial these days seems to be election related. Then again, those ads will just be replaced with ads for Christmas and I don't think I am ready for that. hmm, which is the lesser of two evils? Christmas ads!
I am tired of all the mail that comes in about the different candidates. Does it even work, did anybody go and vote today based on information from a flier? What a waste of paper if you ask me.
I am tired of the sound bites and half truths that have been told from both parties, sometimes it is hard to know what is really true about anything political these days.
I am tired of people questioning my belief in God, intelligence, or fill-in-the-blank based on the political candidate I may choose to vote for.
I am tired of people thinking the country is going to go down the tubes if a candidate becomes president.
I am tired of hearing about how people vote based on certain issues that really don't matter, Bush who stood for certain values didn't do much to change the laws on several issues, is the next president really going to make _______ illegal or prevent ________ from happening?
I am tired of people just being so negative in general. This election has really gotten some people excited about politics, but it has also caused a dividing line in the sand when you don't always agree with other people. I find it kind of funny how some people feel quite passionately about one candidate and they don't understand how anyone could support the opposite when I don't understand how they can support the person they do.
I am also tired of the fact that our election system is set up in such a way that the popular vote doesn't necessarily determine the president, we need to do away with the electoral college so that every vote really does count.
I can't wait to find out who wins and I hope it is the candidate who I like, but if not, it will be okay, you win some, you lose some.
