In Preparation for November 5th – Conservative Tips for Election Post Election Woes

It is inevitable, on November 4th, (or 5th or the following month, depending on possible legal challenges), America will have a new President. It is obvious from the title of this blog (Massachusetts Conservative Feminist), that McCain would be the preferred choice, that said, with an election that is now polling within the margin of error (of course, that’s only in certain polls that have been fairly consistent (such as the Battleground and IDB/TIPP) while CNN, and CBS are generally – not), this election will most probably go down to the wire and be decided by 80,000 voters in Ohio, or New Hampshire. Therefore, the entire group of pundits and pollsters aside, history is, as noted too many times to count, bound to repeat itself.

What happens therefore, when the votes are finally tallied and the Electoral College has spoken (or perhaps the Supreme Court), and either McCain or Obama is the new president? First, the world will not come to an end, unless of course, McCain is elected and one is an Obama supporter. Here is some advice - immediately seek out the help of a therapist, MDS and PDS (*McCain Derangement and Palin Derangement Syndrome) will be much worse than BDS, due to the high level of emotional attachment that Obama has engendered in the following areas: our youth, our teachers, and of course, our reporters and news anchors. Recalling the backlash in a print publication office back in 2004, personnel actually took time off work to mourn John Kerry and would not speak to suspected Bush voters for the ensuing three weeks. As the months passed and the world did not come to an end, they began to hate and dismiss the president at every opportunity and of course, plot for total world domination. In other words, they recovered.

Should Obama be elected those on the right will go to work, continue about their day, congratulate the opposition, support the President, and tune in to talk radio in huge numbers. Despite a threat of a return to the “Fairness Doctrine”, an Obama presidency would ensure that those who write Conservative Columns (granted one to every 1,000 in print), or host Conservative Television or Radio shows, or even blog on the right - will see their rankings go through the roof, along with their taxes. Should Obama and Nancy and Harry actually move this country forward, they will be given credit, as is appropriate. Should there be another terrorist attack on this country; Obama will lead us through it, to the best of his abilities. Should an Obama administration and Legislature come close or worse, exceed the damage done under President Carter – Conservatives understand that four years go by in a blink of an eye, - and years of reconstruction ahead that will lead to Republican dominance for at the very least the following eight to twelve years (history again). Should Obama defy any conservatives’ wildest expectations and be a self-made man that will buck his own party and try and steer it down the middle (Clinton), then it will be eight years before the country will go through another election such as this.

It is high time for a little levity, mixed with the serious nature of a general election. As this is a conservative blog, below are one funny email ditty on the Obama Tax Plan, an amusing video entitled “Why I’m voting Democrat” and finally a serious piece that is worth watching. This is what one should understand - at the end of the day those in the trenches are just that and those in Washington – are those in Washington. The party objective is to divide and rule – Republican and Democrat alike. (That said, one must admit that McCain and Palin do not in any way shape or form, meet the criteria of Washington Insider - while Obama, a one term Senator, who has consistently voted with his party, and Biden, a senator who has spent at least as much time in office as McCain, yet, has spent time voting with his party are total party animals….one get’s the picture.)

“Today on my way to breakfast ... I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read: 'Vote Obama, I need the money!" ... I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a 'Obama 08' button ... once again I laughed ... quite a coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to her that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. She stood there in disbelief while I told her that I was going to redistribute her tip to someone who I deemed more in need ... that homeless guy outside. The server, calling me something under her breath, angrily stormed away ...

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to go inside and thank the waitress ... as I decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waitress was incredibly pissed off that I would give away the money she earned even though the actual recipient needed the money much more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application. “

Thanks for writing this.

Every 4 years it's the same thing---the dire predictions, the angst, and lately the anger; but as you say, life simply goes on. Most people don't base their happiness on the politician of the day.

A sense of humor helps.
