Spin Cycle-Best of the Worst

So the latest meme over at Sprite's Keeper is another recycle. This time, it's recycling your worst post. I actually had more trouble picking one for this one than last week's favorite post.  I chose this one because it was almost my last post. I was seriously pissed off at someone and thinking about it only made me depressed and led me to consider chucking it all in.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, as the case may be) I persevered.

 Dude, I am so depressed...

So, while I could continue my discussion on the issues of the upcoming election, let me just break it down to this: our health care system sucks, is broken , needs serious fixing and no one really knows how. Second, the war on terror: The war in Iraq was poorly conceived and should never have started. We've left the job undone in Afghanistan for a second time.

Most importantly, since no one reads this blog, I will change no minds, educate no voters and effect no lasting change. Those who disagree with me are just as convinced they are right and I am wrong as I am they. They think me foolish at best, arrogant at worst and just plain wrong. Which just makes me angry and then depressed when I realize I think the same thing of them. So, rather than continue to exchange scathing commentaries, wall postings, etc. I will concede defeat.

I will vote my conscience and they theirs come November. God help us all.

Nope, not a bad post at all. I remember being in the exact same position as you last year. And given your political prowess, I thought you were right.
Right now, I don't know what to think about anything. Too much mud slinging that it's covering the facts. You're linked!

Living in a swing state, I was so $@%$ing sick of the whole election mess in September and October it wasn't even funny. I was so sick of it that I avoided politics on my blog all together (being Libertarian, I KNOW no one is going to agree with me LOL).

And you'd be amazed at the structures I can build out of paper clips when I'm bored. :^D

I was depressed back then, too. Heck, I still am. It's hard to write about something that everyone else has already covered ad nauseum, isn't it?

Well, let me just say that I'm glad you decided to hang in there...what would we do without Wednesday Weirdness!
