I just returned from voting. This has been a hard election for me. I just really don't feel like any of the candidates for President represent me well. I don't fit well in either the Republican or Democratic parties. Quite frankly, I am just glad to get this day over and have no more calls from Barak and John and all the other local people.
I love politics in theory. I just hate it in practice. It has gotten so dirty and so negative. Good riddance to all this campaigning.
The only race I really care about this year is in not on my ballot -- Prop 8 in California. I hope enough Californians have the strength to stand against the persecution being thrown at them and pass Prop 8. I will be watching to see tonight. It will be a real test of where we stand morally as a nation.
As for the Presidential race, I predict Obama will win by at least 5% in the popular vote. I hope that he will choose to become a President that will work for the betterment of all Americans and not just liberals and Hollywood folk. I think he has the potential to be a great President in many ways. Then again, he also could lead the country to moral corruption in the process. He is a bit of an unknown factor in many ways. Hmmm. It will be interesting to watch at least.
Well whatever your opinions are politically, go make them known at the polls today. And celebrate the end of this campaign season with me. Hallelujah no more political ads or calls!
