Post election

Clean up and off, follow through

Thank God the elections are over and billions were spent to try to buy/sway my vote. No more robot calls, no more endless TV and radio commercials and no more stuffed mailbox with flyers, etc, and maybe I'll be able to see the hillside when the signs are removed.
If your candidate won, then you are responsible for what they do in office. So you better pay attention, make them follow through on what they promised.
If your candidate lost, quit your whining and crying and make the winners live up to what they promised. You need to be a watchdog -- yelling and screaming to make them hear your point and protect your freedoms. If they don't then make sure everyone knows that they are not keeping their promises.
If you did not vote, keep quiet and stick your head back in the sand. Those of us that did vote will make all the choices for you. You don't vote, you don't have any say.
Enough ranting and raving; I have to get the hose and scrub brush and clean the mud off the candidates.
