The worm turns...

I don't know exactly how much rain we've had in the past couple of days. I do know its been quite a bit. This morning, when I went for coffee, I noticed a lot of worms crossing the road on front of our house.

Apparently, when the ground got full of water, the worms on the north side of the road decided to head for higher ground and made a mad dash (as worm dashes go)for the south side of the road. Meanwhile, the worms on the south side of the road decided to avoid drowning by making their own mad dash to the north side of the road.

They reminded me a lot of voters that elect Republicans for a while and then Democrats for a while. They might think things will be better, or even different, after they make the switch, but it doesn't take long to realize that no matter which side of the road you're on, the government is going to keep getting bigger and bigger, and we keep getting in deeper and deeper.

And of course, a lot of worms had their hopes crushed even before they made it across the road.

The road Libertarians usually prefer to take isn't nearly as crowded.

But the end result looks a lot better.

Republicans are bad.

Democrats are worse.

What kind of a choice is that?
