Butterflies in the stomach on the eve of the US national elections of 2012

I have that funny feeling again that I get before US National Elections. Kind of like butterflies in your stomach when you fear the outcome of something. And since I’m a cynic, I can’t not be afraid.

Because the Democrats have a history of losing when and where they should be strong and dominant.

And because Americans have a… funny way of thinking politically sometimes.

What Americans do to their country should be fine, if what happens there didn’t affect the rest of the world so much. Or if the pretender to the world’s lone hyperpower was a country that didn’t send tanks to shut its own people up.

Please vote wisely, people of the United States. I so do not want to start learning Chinese soon.
