Finally, the big day has arrived.
This is an important day for all Americans and for political junkies like myself, tonight is like the World Series, Superbowl, and Oscars all on the same day.
I’ve voted in every election since I’ve been eligible to do so. My favorite candidates don’t always win, but voting is a privilege I take seriously. What is often forgotten in the midst of such long campaigns is that a passion for politics should not supersede patriotism.
Please don’t subscribe to doomsday theories that American civilization is at stake today. Scare tactics motivate people to vote, but critical thinkers understand voting is always important. American civilization is strong enough to survive and thrive regardless of which party is in power. Let’s remember that we are all Americans and that should always come before classifying ourselves by our political affiliations.
No matter who controls the House or Senate, there must be cooperation among all Americans because there is enormous work to be done.
