Thank you for not voting because you dislike the party system. That way, the rest of us will make decisions for you. By the way, did you know that you always can write in your preferred candidate if you don’t care for the party person?

What I liked about this election is that it took our American “melting pot” to elect our president.

I loved the stories about the grade-school kids learning about casting their votes. This is how it starts, folks. This is important.

What a great cartoon on the editorial page about Fox News and MSNBC starting the Civil War. Funny stuff!

The best question of the election evening was, “Is this some sort of Republican math you use to make yourself feel better?” And that was from Megyn Kelly to Karl Rove. Priceless!

If Richard Mourdock is like many evangelicals, he believes God has a plan for his life and, thus, God indeed intended for him to lose, even though he was carrying out God’s will. Just like the biblical hero Job.

Join the revolution. Form your own government. Live by your rules, not theirs.

To the bright person who said, “No one has come up with a better way to elect a president,” how about this: The governor, senators and all other politicians are voted in by getting the most votes. Is this too much common sense?

I wanted to let the people know who didn’t watch the Kankakee documentary on PBS that Jeff Manes played a wonderful part, and I really enjoyed it. It just shows you what we have here in Indiana.
