Today is election day in the United States and I am noticing just how many of my Canadian friends seem to feel strongly about the outcome. I ,myself ,experience a strange feeling of dread whenever I think of Romney as the leader of the closest country to us. I cringe whenever I think of the damage that man can do. Having said that, I have to wonder , how important is it for Canadians to pay attention to the U.S and their elections? I don’t mean, is there any fallout for Canada, I know there can be for sure. What I want to know, is there any point in worrying about it. Could our country’s opinion carry any weight with the Americans? When we are posting our concerns on Facebook or twitter for our friends to the south to see ,do they even care or do they feel put out by us voicing our views about their politicians? What is more of an insult, the fact that we follow what is happening with them or the fact that they are generally completely oblivious and unconcerned with us and what is happening here?
Update- .here is a link to a TMZ posting containing a letter sent to them by an actress named Stacy Dash who is a Republican. The letter is very well written and thoughtful. She makes a real effort to explain herself without tearing anyone down and I applaud her for it. However the comments below on the posting by TMZ and their readers are ridiculous. It could be asked “what did I expect”, but I still find myself disgusted
