Hope n' Change Cartoons apologizes in advance for the fact that today's commentary isn't about breaking news, but about the very profound mix of emotions we feel knowing that today we face either four more days (until elections)...or four more years (until America's destruction is complete).
Currently, it's hard for us to hear the number "four" without thinking of the number of Americans Obama allowed to die horribly in Benghazi to bolster his political campaign. It's hard to hear "four" without thinking of the number of years that America has been in accelerating decline, becoming a food stamp nation filled with anger and despair. And of course, when we hear "four" - we think of this jug-eared jackass whacking golf balls while America burned in an economic fire which he stoked at every opportunity.
"Four more years! Four more years!" That's what Barry thinks people across America are shouting. But if he listens closely, they're probably begging for former years.
Like America's former years of prosperity, of growth, of national strength and international respect. The former years of nurturing an American dream for everyone instead of encouraging people to attack and pillage those who've worked hard enough to make their own American dreams come true.
Four more days...
Currently, it feels like a very long time - but it could conceivably get much worse. Owing to convoluted election laws, it's entirely possible that Ohio's final vote tally might not come in until ten days after election day. Similarly, California is saying it might take days to count their mail-in votes. And there are fears (none yet substantiated) that election day might be postponed, extended, or otherwise fiddled with in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
But one way or another, we're down to the wire. Please do everything you can to help make this election turn out right. Helping people to the polls, sharing information with others, making phonecalls, donating funds, or whatever you can do.
Because four days of hard work really isn't much time...but four years of wishing you'd done more will be a wretched eternity.
Four more years, America? Really...?!
