Don't Panic... Yet

Just a small voice out here in the wilderness with a word of caution: before you all go flying off the handle because the Antichrist (read incredible sarcasm here please) has been elected and the end of the world as we know it may be at hand, allow yourself a break from the spiteful rhetoric and thinly veiled fear mongering.
I have been sitting at work for the past 3 days listening to people panic because Barack Obama won the election. I hear lots of rumors about how all of our lives will now go to hell in a hand basket.
The truth is, this man won and there are probably a lot of us who don't know anything about him politically because you can't really count on a campaign to do anything but tell you what you want to hear. Good and bad.
So, as the title says, don't panic... yet. Please take a moment or two and cruise over to
or this link
and this one which is his congressional voting record

There are plently of places out there the get legitmate information. Take the time to look and as I have said before, educate yourself. Fear and ignorance can go hand in hand.
