I Have Done Due Diligence

SUMMARY: Election 2016

There are how many frikking propositions on this year's ballot?!

Still, I have read, studied up, read some more, studied up some more, and the ballot is now sealed and ready to join the stream of ballotage flowing to the Registrar of Voters.

Don't usually talk about my voting details, but, yes, Clinton all the way. May be the best--by far the best--candidate win. Go, Hillary!

Whew! Glad that's done with.


  1. Whew, yes. That was quite a ballot. Now to sit here and try not to tremble with fear until next Tuesday (I also voted for Clinton).

    1. I know. I've been worried sick, literally, about this election. First time in my life it has hit me this hard, despite some pretty ugly potentials in earlier years (jeez, if George W becomes prez, you wanna bet he's going to go put us into the middle east in combat? That would be terrible if it happens! Who knew--). But this year, unbelievable. Unbelievable. Still sometimes think it must be a bad dream. Yep, trying to just relax and be prepared to handle whatever comes.

  2. This is the scariest election in my voting history. Can not BELIEVE that people I like can possibly like Trump. Still. 8 years ago very good friends were aghast that Obama won, and I reminded them that they didn't have to like him, they needed to respect the position. I am hoping I don't have to remind myself of that come Tuesday night. It will be hard. And for the first time I have more empathy for my Republican friends who struggled the last 8 years. But still. He JUST CAN'T win. It would be impossible for me to understand.

    1. I'm in the same situation. Intelligent people I know and like think that Clinton is the devil. One of my failings sometimes is that I can see both sides of things so have trouble making up my mind. This time, it seems black & white to me. But the only person I'm aware of who unfriended me on FB because of election stuff was because I insisted that Clinton had a better chance of winning (the primary, and eventually the election) than Sanders.
