A Writer's Den: Change You Can Believe In

Change You Can Believe In

The 2010 elections are now over. So what does this mean for you, the American people?  

This means there will be no more name calling, snarky phrases, finger wagging, or last minute scandals— until tomorrow, of course.

This means you can stop screening your calls. But beware that the end of robocalls means someone (your kid, your dog, your mom) will be pretty upset that they are no longer allowed to answer your phone anymore.

This means those amateur television commercials will disappear. So no more back to back political advertisements saying the same exact thing, as if you didn’t see or hear how horrible they were the first time.

This means no more listening to the radio when your favorite politician is talking to you, and you hollering back “get the bleep off my radio!” or “play some bleeping music!”

This means there will be no more preaching politics from the pulpit on Sundays.

This means your neighbors will finally remove those awful campaign signs.

This means no more reducing the history of your state to red and blue colors.

This means those promises you heard during election season, will officially become lies tomorrow.

These may not have been the changes you were looking for, but you have just experienced change we can all believe in.
