    Anyone notice the awesome full moon on Halloween night? You could see detail even without a telescope. So bright, it lit up my backyard!

    I bet you’re doing that right now watching the election coverage.

    I don't have cable. I check in with the various YouTube broadcasts every now and then but it's too early so there is really nothing to see.

    I expect Biden to win and the only question is whether it's by a landslide or not. I would like to know how N.C. or Florida turns out (the swing states that are most likely to report tonight).

    You're in the backyard looking at the moon, right?

    Actually I sold a guitar on Ebay today and I'm packing it up for USPS to pick it up tomorrow.

    Yes, looking up at the mom...stars. Hoping a kind alien comes down to save me.

    No matter who wins, there’s a saying...a country gets the government it deserves.

    Nice on the guitar sale! But USPS? I think they’re a little busy. Lol

    I agree that people get the government they deserve (that they vote for).

    I always use USPS to ship something. They have a good website, I can pay for and print the shipping label and schedule a free pickup from my front door the next day. I ship Priority Mail so it gets there in about 2 days and there is less chance of damage.

    I get a notice from PayPal that I have been paid, I transfer that to my local bank account, so it's all very convenient and quick.

    Ah, gotcha. That's a nice set up, then. I have a friend who has a small business online, and she uses them in a similar way. I think if they pick up right at your door with priority mail, you can almost guarantee that the item won't be ''lost.''

    So, Trump looks like he's gaining some solid ground. He looks like he won Florida. But, we won't have the final answer tonight, unless something crazy happens.

    I find that statement a bit strange

    Seems to me a country (country = large group of diverse people living within a geographical area) get a Government favoured by the rules the election is run by

    Which by that criteria only the people on the winning side get the Government they deserve, the losers get nothing

    That should have read ''looking up at the moon...'' I was on my phone and rushing.

    My point is the system is working. I'd like to see Trump out of there. If enough people think otherwise and he wins, they are getting what they deserve.

    Even if your candidate doesn't ''win,'' you still participated in the process, and that is what democracy is all about. The quote ''a nation gets the government it deserves,'' means that a nation's government is a reflection of its citizens' values.

    Well the majority OK

    What I put forward,some time ago another forum, is a set up based on the majority forming the main Government with other parties given low level Government jobs

    Example give the 2nd party say Parks and Wildlife. If they prove adept at running and improving Parks and Wildlife the public has some gauge as to their ability to manage stuff

    Stuff it up, next election they become the 3rd party

    All voters have now "Elect us we will do A-B-C especially A." Get voted in no A no B no C but fiddle around with D until close to next election
