[65] democracy


Wow. It's a pretty crazy day. Whatever side you lean towards, I hope that everyone can at least acknowledge the amazing lengths we've come in the past 40 years. It's incredible. For once in my life, I really feel like I CAN do anything. It's an odd feeling - a liberation from an insecurity that I'm only even aware of occasionally.

I've been watching people's Facebook statuses religiously. It's pretty entertaining. Sometimes I wonder where the crap people get their ideas from. I remember in 2004, some of my super liberal friends saying similar end-of-the-world things about Bush being elected, and while it has been rough, it hasn't been the end of our civilization as we know it. I will say now what I said then: We're not all going to Hell in a handbasket. Get a freakin' grip. Or move to (socialist) Canada as you've threatened. Let's just be real: The President does not have the ability to unilaterally change the entire political philosophy of the U.S. There are checks and balances to prevent that. Enough with the drama.

Anyway, I'm glad all this election hoopla is over and we can resume our normal lives.

it sucks realizing how many of your (MY) friends are so intensely dedicated to who becomes president.

not to mention the fact that we're gunna have an african-american president...that's kinda cool too...
