Lately I have been growing more anxious about the deteriorating economy. Don't get me wrong, I think I'm pretty well hedged as far as my occupation goes: Defender of Big Oil, and plus I will definitely earn more on the speaking circuit if Obama wins.
Even so, I worry about stuff and this is one of them. Then I was looking out my window at my neighbor doing yard work, and I thought, "Why don't I chill out? Life goes on, regardless of what 'the economy' is doing. As long as I don't miss a mortgage payment, it's all good..."
But no, not really. The only reason it's so pleasant to live in our house is that we can drive the SUV to Costco etc. and stock up on supplies, visit gas stations to power this magical ship, and also because we have electricity coming into the house to power our internet connection and central air conditioning.
So although it's true that worrying never helps, it's also true that the state of 'the economy' affects us all when we have such a highly specialized division of labor. And although he may be better in terms of not starting another war (though maybe not), I think President Obama, with a Democratic Congress, would really screw up the US economy.
