American friends, this is it. Today is the day that the incessent phone calls end. The day that we’ll begin seeing more holiday shopping commercials than political ads. The day that maybe your Facebook friends will go back to posting pictures of their dinners instead of ranting about this candidate and that issue.

Today’s an important day. This is it.
Have you voted already or are your going to vote today? Let me know – just don’t mention who you voted for, because I don’t want my comments section to be come as divided as our country.
