Karl and I stayed up late to try and keep up with the election returns. After about 10:30 we were so depressed we had to call it a night. I’m not sure I can express my disappointment adequately. I am angry that so many Republicans decided to stay home yesterday. Many conservative initiatives were passed around the country, and I’m glad of that. However, Republicans not voting out of anger with their representatives was foolish, to say the least. I am at a loss for words. I’m not sure I understand the “message” they were trying to send by not voting.
