It's Over, Finally!

I'm sure many others feel the same way, but I'm sooooo glad this election is over! No more political signs or commercials...ahh its wonderful. I've been ready for this election to be done for a long time.

My favorite part of election time is the outrageous ranting of uneducated people. I feel like I heard a lot more of that this election than I did the last one.

Some of the things people told me, oh boy. Obama is the most corrupt man in the world and is out to destroy the country. Mc Cain hates homosexuals and doesn't care about anyone but rich white people. And sure enough, all this ranting came from people who if they told me the sky is blue I wouldn't believe them because of their long track record of having absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

I don't think how I voted is of particular importance, but I think anyone can see that both candidates had pros as well as cons. So anyone telling me that one is sent from God and the other is a messenger of the devil just sounds down right stupid.

On the election note I am relieved that Prop 8 passed. However I wish I could be happier about it. I truly struggled with this one. I struggled through the whole election, and I'm struggling with the aftermath now. I was watching the news last night and I saw gay people marching in LA to show how unhappy they are with the outcome. They showed this lady (who was very clearly a lesbian) crying, and it just about ripped my heart out. I just want everyone to be happy. I hate that I helped to upset so many people. But I guess that is what politics is about. I understand why they want to get married, and I understand why they think they should be allowed to. However I still feel in my heart that gay marriage is not right. I have no problem with gay people and I admire their perseverance through this whole debate.

I look forward to moving on from this election to bigger and better things!
