I’m not the biggest fan of politics-as-usual, political systems, and especially politicians. However, I decided to weigh-in with my predictions for how the country will vote. I was very surprised by the outcome of my picks. In the best example of our current political culture, I matched the candidates dead even without either one winning. I must also note that I hate the electoral college system.
How divided must we be when we can’t even talk about solutions to problems that we all want to fix? Romney and Obama match 4 out of 5 points in their plans for the economy. How you tackle those 5 point plans is critical, but if we can’t have productive conversations where we try to understand where the other is coming from – then everyone should be relegated to kindergarten and mandated to watch Big Bird on Sesame Street.
