In the Voting Booth

Who’s going to be the next president?
Maybe Barack Obama.
Maybe Mitt Romney.
It could be a landslide.
Or not.

Information saturation—
the barrage of analysis,
projection, and prediction.
Political polling mega-analysis—
Odds favor the president.

When people feel good,
they vote for the status quo.
When people feel unhappy,
they may vote against their own interests,
an expression of frustration.

Who’s going to be the next president?
We’ll know when we know.

 
Please go out and vote in accordance with your own interests.  For 99% of Americans that means
 a vote for Obama and the other Democrats.
