You bet I voted! Albeit absentee, I still voted. Along with the importance of the presidential election, there were several propositions I felt very strongly about, namely Prop’s 4 & 8. While the whole country took one giant step forward with the landslide decision to elect Obama, California took an unfortunate, and misinformed step backwards by allowing Proposition 8 to pass. I feel confident that we will one day look back and feel ashamed by our actions. Who are we to judge anyone on who they love or how they love?
Nonetheless, the people of America have spoken loud and clear: a time for change, a new era in Washington. Barack Hussein Obama. Who would have thought? Perhaps anyone with a brain. I’m SO thankful that Americans made the right decision. The reaction from an international standpoint has been so unique and neat to experience. On the day of the election I had several tables, completely unprompted congratulate me on my new President. And the other night I was at a bar and some guy came in with a Barack Obama “The change, the promise” t-shirt and his buddies kept commenting on how rad his shirt was. When was the last time the international community has viewed our President as cool? Not only is he considered a widespread badass but he’s also viewed as a beacon of light and hope for the globe. Thank you America!
