For this entire election I feared I was in a cocoon, despite reading leftist stuff, having left-leaning friends, and reading as broadly as I could.
Apparently I was, I could see no feasible scenario by which Obama could win. It just didn't make rational sense, and all the indicators were of him losing.
Now, I'm convinced that there are some hard core shenanigans going on, but even without them, the election apparently would be incredibly close. And close= Democrat win, every time except one rare moment in time when Bush managed to stop it.
So any way you paint it, my understanding of politics and the nation's leanings was wrong. Completely wrong. So apparently I am in a cocoon. Funny how it doesn't feel very comfortable or safe.
But I'm done here.  The purpose of this blog was to reach out and try to influence and educate, to try to help people learn and understand the world better, and to try to influence worldviews and do a tiny little bit to help my country and the world.
Its too late.  It doesn't matter.  I'm done with this, I was getting a bit burnt out anyway having trouble finding things to write about.  I am giving up on a lot of things I've been doing, like Facebook.  My twitter experiment didn't lead to any book sales, and honestly I don't know what I'm going to do now.
If the economy does what I fear it will next, nobody is going to have extra cash to buy any books anyway.  It doesn't feel good to go out a failure, but I can't argue with the facts.  Gloat all you want leftists, enjoy your moment of happiness.  I can see what's coming even if you can't.  It doesn't make me feel any better.
