I can't wait.
One call I answered by mistake was a woman sounding extremely desperate - that if Obama is reelected the country will collapse into Socialism. "Oh my gosh!" I said, "I heard that too! Thanks for calling." And I hung up. I screen most of the calls and somehow don't make it to the door in time for the political volunteers. One message left on my phone was for marriage - to protect it. I already know that. Even a local pastor stopped by - he wasn't Catholic - he left a card - which is how I found out he was a pastor.
I've also received emails asking me to make calls urging people to Vote Yes for the marriage amendment.
Interestingly enough, both sides of the marriage issue are calling each other out for lying and exaggerating. Both sides are getting desperate - if not contentious and contemptuous.
It will be over next Tuesday. Kind of. If the amendment passes, the repeal process will commence. If it fails, we will go through this again. No matter who wins the presidency - the winner will be disparaged for four more years.
Despite what happens, the country is divided. I doubt any kind of politics can fix that.
