You know what? I can't wait for

The US elections to be over! Seriously.

At least then I would know where my country will stand and how much money I "really" need to bring to the States when I come over on the 17th...

I also hope that all you that are eligible to vote, votes!

Regards from a non- American...

AMEN! And not just the big one. There's a couple of local ones that are driving me crazy. ENOUGH!

Can't we adopt the Canadian system, where it can happen anytime, with a few weeks notice? Man, this 4-year campaigning is getting old.

Adeliah, I'm so sick of the commercials for ALL the candidates. None of them are telling the total truth about each other.

I'll be glad its over too (but dread what is to come once that person is in office!)

I live in a state with a very tight Senate race and I tell you I am sick of the commercials. First ad is how horrible one guy is. Second ad about how fabulous that same guy is. And then repeat a billion times a day.
I DVR my shows so I can skip them.

And if either of them actually show up at the polls, they'll be allowed to

As someone who lives in a swing state, I couldn't agree with you more.

I had to unplug my phone due to all the Ro-Bo calls.

I am so tired off all the commercials. I havent turned on my TV in a week because I can't take it any more. Then we have poeple who stand out on the street corner with signs telling you who you should vote for!! Like that is really going to change my mind about who I am going to vote for At this point I could care less who wins I just can't wait for Bush to be gone!

Luckly I'm not in a swing state, so just the occasional TV ad for President. Now the senate race is ridiculous. The challanger doesn't have a snowballs chance of beating the incumbant, but the ads are just constant. Geeze.

I'm sick of it too. And now that I'm getting some good jokes in emails I hope you don't mind me posting because this one sums it up for me:

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the senator. "Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises ...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving
from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose
your eternity."

The senator reflects for a minute, then answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell." So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land
covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it
in black bags as more trash falls from above...

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. "I don't
understand," stammers the senator "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil looks at him, smiles and says.......


"Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted."

I'm tired of all of the discussions about what candidate x did 30 years ago and how candidate y is going to insert scary action here. It makes my head spin!

I had no idea where it was going. But a good one. My father keeps sending me political jokes for a good chuckle.
