Next election to be violent


One of the hallmarks of our government is the smooth transition of power in this country. This election is going to abolish that characteristic. Look at what is happening with the local, national and international governments. We are all interconnected, like it or not.

If you think the so-called Arab Spring was an isolated event, think again. We are so divided in this country with everyone armed and ready to fight; it’s going to get nasty. But don’t worry, it will all work out.

Sure, there will be bloodshed, but there will also be compassion, just like in any conflict. And after the smoke clears, we will see a different country with new values.
