I share your concerns, O Drama.
First, the country is not going to hell in a hand basket; It has already arrived.
You think stuff was hidden before the election, just imagine what is hidden from us on the real condition of the economy?
Had Romney won, thousands of Media people and idle reporters would have come off their couches and begun demonizing and planting roadblocks! Before the election they were simply afraid he might win. Had Mitt won, they, and all Democrats would have been consumed with hatred and may have undermined him internationally. Remember in the past when congressmen met with foreign governments to try to undermine Bush? It would have been really nasty! Riots aside!
