Totally Random Thoughts re: Election

Well, I don't need to sit here and gloat about Obama slaughtering McCain, as that is evident on every news site, blog and facebook status around. But, I am very grateful that I can once again be confident in America. I love winning. :) Of course my rejoicing was dampened when Prop 8 was passed. The good news is, there's always another chance, and as the older generations disappear, the hope will increase. Today, Trent, me and a friend visiting from out-of-state were eating in the Cougareat talking about this subject that is close to all of our hearts, and as we were discussing the situation, some kid sat down next to us and made some comments about Prop 8 that were really ambiguous, so we couldn't really tell if he was a "yes" or "no" man. Well, turns out that he is a BYU student that is a "no on prop 8" kind, and it was just awesome to talk to someone on campus who actually felt the same way as us. We had a great discussion and learned that much of his support for equal rights stems from having a gay family member. I was really encouraged talking to him, to know that the fight is not over yet. As with any great changes in history, they are hardly earned without a fight. 

Now on a somewhat related subject, I just read some Mormon Republican lady's blog, and the title was "How much are tickets to France?" because according to the entry, she wants to move away to France since Obama was elected. Which is really funny, because as my last entry indicates, the 'pubes are the ones that hated France just a couple years ago because they wouldn't do that whole Iraq War thing. So, what she's saying is, she, a pube, wants to go to France, a country that is way more liberal than the U.S. and is also like 10% Muslim (which is what they're all afraid of Obama being, right?), yet she thinks it's going to be better there? Oh My. I'm sure they'd welcome her with open arms, considering she probably participated in "boycott France" a couple years ago. Believe you me, France doesn't want American 'pubes any more than Vermont would. Love it.

That's awesome you found a BYU kid that was No on Prop 8. All the smug Yes on Prop Hate facebook people are driving me really crazy. Also, all the facebookers whose status updates say things like they're really scared about what this country is coming to...GEES! They act like Obama is Satan. Such small mindedness...it is driving me crazy.

I know, it's so stupid! I have heard people call him a wolf in sheep's clothing...really? Why can't he just be a nice guy? Why does he have to be the anti-christ? When it comes down to it, people are so prejudiced. It just seems unfathomable to some that a black man could be a decent human being, or that a man named Obama isn't a terrorist. He stands for good things in his everyday life- just look at his down-to earth family-, and he picked an exceptional running mate who puts family at the forefront of his life, and yet he can't possibly be a good guy. It's just sad. I also think it's funny that people act like they're surprised that he won! Hello, we knew it all along, but you know they were all crossing their fingers that his race was going to impede his presidency. Well, Bradley Effect no more!

haha that's funny! i think the whole rest of the world is mostly liberal (with the exception of a few countries) and if these people think it'll be greener on the other side they're wrong! and poor old Palin, the GOP sent a lawyer to catalog all the clothes she bought and take them away. lol
