I pretty sure I died a little inside last night watching CNN. A good man was almost president, but now never will.

The United States did not turn any corner last night. Racism played a role in this election along with sexism, and ageism (i think that is how it is spelled), but the last two really did not get any coverage by the media. Actually the media used ageism in the questions to the public. We base our choices on the looks of others either because we like them or we do not. Not on the issues that face us and are important to our future.


other disappointments:

Prop 102 passed

Sheriff Joe is still in office,

What is worse is that Andrew Thomas is still around, I think I would have been fine with Sheriff Arpaio as long as we had an Attorney General who had some integrity and was some what competent.

The election is over and what can you do. The choices were made and now we need to accept them and move on. In two years we get another chance to make certain changes if things are not working out as planned.

A constitutional amendment can be repealed, right?

The entire thing is a joke. I voted absentee and it didn't do any good.

haha. good outlook.

i must say, while i'm not even registered so i really can't be upset either direction, i have noticed that everyone i've talked to under the age of 25 is pissed off and annoyed at the idea of even creating amendment defining marriage. and a good majority of those over 35 i've talked to were major supporters. it's always good to see the major shift in attitudes through the generations. too bad it's arizona and we're CLEARLY an underrepresented generation.

but. again. i'm not even registered so my "vote" didn't count towards it either.
