Thank goodness for states planning and doing early voting. States have advance planning and know how to conduct voting. That is because states have more than President to vote for and elect. They have city councils, mayors, school boards, state representatives and senators, county commissioners, governors, and other very important officials to ensure everything is working on a normal everyday basis.

States must do commerce. The federal government hasn't had a Secretary of Commerce for 4 months and states are doing fine.

States got along fine until the 1960s when the Supreme Court started persuaded by the federal government to ensure that someone doing interstate commerce fall under federal review and control. The little cafe on the corner that had a can of soup that was made in Connecticut then had to fall under federal requirements. There is commonsense and then there is federal intrusion in normal everyday activities. This helped bring in more oversight from welfare to how colleges accept students who have federal loans.

It is not a one issue starts everything but little by little the federal government gets involved with state's activities.

Government is meant for safety and helping society but is overburdening budgets.

I can hear it now.
"I demand a recount."
Judges will be issuing orders to keep polls open an extra day or two or three.
People will complain of disenfranchisement.
We'll be lucky to have a winner by Thanksgiving.

Storm wrecked states:

* will have a slow recovery due to liberal leadership
* will receive less money then the Muslim Brotherhood, Iraq, Pakistan, and Egypt.
* will receive less federal money then the failed clean energy companies got.

Another four years?

This President still hasn't figured out that his legacy is potentially blemished by his actions or lack of actions, such as campaigning when the citizens of his east coast are still in need and in distress.

He hasn't figured out what a President should do in his duties.

His advisers have lacked the ability to keep all the departments and agencies on the track of doing the will of the people through the laws enacted and enforced by those agencies.

He lacked any ability to work with Congress even his own Democratic Congress. He forced them into a corner and then took the credit for getting his legislation, Obamacare through Congress and signed.

Cooperation isn't part of his regime. He speaks down to citizens, Congress, the Courts but speaks well with leaders of various countries who despise our country, beliefs, practices, laws, and the Constitution of the United States of America.

We cannot afford another 4 years of being weak, not only in the economy, but diplomatically, militarily and just being leaderless with a highly sophisticated B-747 flying around the world with media that purport to be journalists that are unbiased - balanced.

Truth is truth. Only facts change.
