Election Day

Today is election day, and I will be glad when it is over. That is, unless I have to be surrounded by people whining about who won. Hopefully we will all just be mature and accept the will of the people. I have only told two people who I am voting for, and I am somewhat astonished at my ability to keep my own secret, especially from my family. I have no idea who I support as Guv'ner, but at least I like them both so I trust we'll be in good hands. I cannot say the same for president. The two main party canidates both kinda scare me. I think Bush is strong and Kerry is intelligent, which is good, but it means whoever wins will either be somewhat weak or unintelligent. That makes me nervous. Frankly I think it would be hilarious if everyone just voted for Nader. But I don't know that that would be good either.

I'm scared to have to vote.

Election time is always a little difficult when you belong to a close knit family group with such a variance of opinions. I have my own strong convictions, but for the most part, feel somewhat uncomfortable discussing my beliefs with anyone (lest I offend).

On the other hand I have benefited from discussing politics with siblings because I have learned a few things and gained fresh perspective from people that I respect. All in all, each time I vote, I feel patriotic and proud to have participated in the election process, regardless of who wins.

I do hate the wait though.

I'm glad I could enlighten you Amie-J. :)

Kiki, I think it's cool that you get so involved even when you can't vote. You are intelligent and patriotic. Keep it up and don't get discouraged by our disconnectedness at home.
