I have read numerous pro-and-con articles about Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as running mate, and watched some of Face the Nation this morning, and figured I can't be optimistic about Obama winning a second term, because too much of America is too amazingly stupid to understand what they're doing when they support Romney.
So... I guess Romney will win, and the Gilded Age will return, and things will just keep on getting worse. Oh, well. It was a great country while it lasted.
