  1. Yes..dear God, four days feels like forever…so tired of it all.

    • @Orson Carte They are confused… wow the crazy left is offended that we have Latinos for TRUMP!!! Come on man! Haber deja de ofender y hablemos en nuestro lenguaje. Que es lo que tanto te duele? Get out of your mom’s house, get a JOB and stay in Venezuela or Cuba for a year without your parents money, make it on your own and then we can chat. You will have some logic, you are full of emotion right now.

    • America will Re Elect President Trump because he keeps his words. Says what he does and does what he says.

    • @Gigi Ivy Where did I say I was religious, sad specimen?
      And where did I say I was offended?!? Are you high?

    • ​@Orson Carte No hablas espanol? Que ignorante!!! You are sad, learn Spanish before you address me, you have no idea what is to be a latino. Typical crazy communist democrat, just insults and no substance. Aprende espanol.

    • @Gigi Ivy Oh dear….you have no idea what communism actually means do you, sad specimen?

  2. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed until after Election Day…..

  3. it,s soo stressful it feels like iam the one whos running for the election ,,,and iam not even american😁

      You are an American in the process of discovering it! It happened to me and, at some point, i realized i am a double American: Brazil and USA. Welcome!

      Haven’t been able to sleep behind all of this. As though I’m running against Kamala

    • @Genuinely Me A YOUNG PRSON CAN KICK THE BUCKET, GET ALS, die in a car crash, be murdered by his ex wife.. Biden is mentally gone and Trump does 3 to 5 rallies a day… We need trump with his experience not a young person . You could kick the bucket any day

    • Same here and I’m German.

      It’s incredible how difficult and disgusting everything is voter suppression late mail delivery cheating etc! In Australia we have compulsory voting and voting is relaxed no shenanigans going around! Hoping And praying 🙏 that Biden / Harris wins ! Or it’s goodbye to America Democracy, because if trump wins it will be a Dictatorship! 💙💙💙💙💙💙🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🗽

    I just want this election to be over with

  5. What a crazy year.(s)

    Thank you! Do it with optimism! I choose to be and do my best.

  7. Guys keep VOTING 🇺🇸

  8. Regardless of who is in office, we still have to Lean In, and do what’s best for our families, community, friends, and check books. Don’t allow what’s going on, “out there”, to distract you from what is important. No matter what, it will all be ok.

    Don’t forget: After the Dark Ages, there came the Renaissance. All of the ignorance and hostility and literal plague in the United States over the past 4 years means that there is an era of art and science and philosophy and diplomacy just right over the horizon. Vote, and then start working on some serious material for the Enlightenment. Because it’s coming.

    Excellent point! Choose optimism!

  11. I’m going to watch movies and play games this weekend and Monday and Tuesday and…however long it takes to count ballots because EVERYONE’S vote does matter.

  12. God did not intend for any of was just a test to weigh humanity’s heart….America came up light!
    Hint….Hate has no weight!

  13. beautifully said, ty mr o’donnell, bravo!!! yes, we must just stay on the path and keep on stepping! vote and have faith!!!

  14. Get out and help those people who have not yet voted. Drive them to the polls.

  15. It seems as if Joe Biden has been choosing optimism all his life. If he hadn’t he would not have been able to make it through the tragedies in his life.

    • America will Re Elect President Trump because he keeps his words. Says what he does and does what he says.

    • Cherokee Jets
      BS…. drumpf going down in the largest landslide in US history. It’s not hard… it’s drumpfs own doing. He is a hateful, despicable empty soulless shell of a “human being”…

  16. The anxiety has bees SO HUGE lately, that just realizing I have the choice of being optimistic has brought me to tears. What a way to let out that frustration, fear and anger out. Be optimistic and cry 😂. Love it.

    Hopefully everyone has already voted but if not there’s still time to get out and vote

  18. last chance VOTE now: ✔Biden / Harris !

  19. Don’t get complacent. Every single vote for Biden/Harris is a clear message to Trump and the world
    that Americans reject Trump’s message of: divisiveness, hatred, greed,
    selfishness, incompetence, etc, etc, etc. Vote Blue!

  20. Trump is pure darkness and evil, Biden is hope and a light at the end of the tunnel , vote blue down the line
