#10… I learned that a lot more people than I would have ever imagined want to be Sheriff of Laurens County.
#9 … I learned that almost anyone can afford a whole bunch of colorful cardboard signs to plaster their names all over the county.
#8 … I learned that the smearing of fecal matter on campaign signs does not necessarily cut down on the effectiveness of that sign.
#7 … I learned that the world almost never ends with an election, although it seems to many that it will.
#6 …I observed how normally peaceful people can become agitated and rather combative. .
#5…I learned that the vote seldom settles serious issues.
#4 …I learned that perhaps it’s not a good idea to trust Newt Gingrich. You may recall him saying Romney would win by a landslide. I believe Randy believed him, too.
#3 …I learned that people will make great sacrifice to vote, even when they know their side is going to loose.
#2 …I learned that the jobs we’re so proud of can run quite well when we’ve taken time off to vote. And I suspect this would be the case if we just took off and toured the country for a few weeks.
# 1 …I learned how many, many people make money by talking about politics. One wonders if this could be the reason the employment rate improves right before election time. I had always thought it was just the President manipulating the numbers.
