I'm disgusted with this election aren't you?
Since this is arriving on election day, I felt I had to make some kind of comment.
Over the past year and a half (it feels like a decade) I've been somewhat addicted to following the election. And in preparing to write this ezine I found I was talking out loud to myself about what I'd write and how I'd say it.
I guess I'm going a little batty. Can anyone relate?
As I walked into my office this morning, I opened my email and noticed Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo in my in box and wondered if he'd said anything about the election.
After reading it, I quickly concluded that what he said was better than anything I could write, so I'm including it below in full. Thanks Alan for your calm and sane perspective.
"We’ll be in Kyoto for the election, I’m happy to report. Odd fact: Much of the Republican leadership doesn’t support their candidate; there are charges of harassment against him; he hasn’t released his tax returns; he keeps shooting himself in the foot every time he speaks; he did not debate well; the media, in any election, lean heavily democratic in their coverage; the sitting President carried about 90% of the African-American vote and he’s actively campaigning; the Democrats have raised far more money. Yet, the polls show the election to be very close.
"What does that tell you?
"For those in the U.S. reading this who will be voting tomorrow, I want to support you in your efforts to do what you feel is proper and right. I want to emphasize that people who don't agree with you are neither stupid nor enemies, and that what we truly need are tolerance and collaboration.
"And I want to assure you that the principles of this great nation are so strong that we will carry on and prosper. In fact, this election will show us that the system is far greater than any one person."

Nicely said, Alan. So get out there and vote your conscience, and we can finally get on with our lives (like marketing your business, right?).
There was one video on the election that is really fun and shares similar sentiments. Hope you enjoy it.
