Cheers and Tears: It's Election Day

Good Day World!

Here we are.

The final act of the reality show we call the midterm elections in the Trump era.

What Time Do Polls Close in Your State?

Leading up to this moment, Americans have seen unbridled racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-immigrant rhetoric take center stage in Trump and his minions campaign strategy.

As usual, Trump pulled the fear factor out and waved it like a Nazi flag to his white supremacist supporters and the rest of his base. 

Let's just see how that plays out today when Americans in all 50 states turn out to vote. I suspect it's going to be a good day for Democrats, and voters will reject his hateful fear mongering tactics.

Periodically, I'm going to give news updates on this post. I'll also be commenting on the results as they come in late today, and up until tomorrow morning.

UPDATE: AP reports Florida Polling Place on Lockdown Over Gun Scare

Am I nervous about the upcoming results? 

Yes. I have to admit that after the 2016 elections anything is still possible, and the Republicans might keep their majority in Congress if Democratic voters don't turn out in record numbers.

I don't think that will happen, however. Hoping for a Blue Wave.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
