Barack Obama Won!

Putting that exclamation point on the end of that title is about the most excitement I've had since Tuesday regarding this topic. I honestly don't feel as though hope has triumphed or won. I see that this country has some MAJOR revisions it needs to get to working on. I could certain see how people were elated, but I just didn't feel like "celebrating". Am I glad Barack Obama won? YES. But that's about as far as it goes. I didn't cry or weep, nor shout or have fits of joy on Tuesday evening as everyone else I knew did. I was just like "well, that's good". And that was the extent of it for me.

I suppose since I work within the inefficient government system that Obama just inherited, I see things slightly differently. There was no difference in my life Tuesday night than their was Wednesday morning, except for the interest on the debt I have accruing more of a balance. I guess it's going to take more for me to become "thrilled". I wish there were something that could "light a fire" under me at this point. Sadly, to date, there isn't. And hasn't been in QUITE some time.

On the Eve of the Election...

I should be sleep! I need to get up at 6AM in order to be at the polls by 6:30AM and be one of the first to cast my vote in my district, but instead, I'm up blogging, because there was just something I had to get off of my chest.

Logically, it's pretty clear that Barack Obama SHOULD win. He's younger. More popular. Has broader appeal. Fresher ideas. And in a nutshell is a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10, when McCain is BARELY a 6 (and I'm being SO nice here). There's no way that McCain SHOULD win this election. His politics are stale. He doesn't have a clear, consistent message. And his choice of Vice President surely leaves MUCH to be desired.

I think tomorrow will really show what america is TRULY MADE OF. The only reason Barack Obama won't win tomorrow is racism pure and simple. There truly will be nothing else that can account for a defeat of a person who by all intents and purposes has TRAMPLED his competition in EVERY CONTEST! And I don't say this as one of those "frothing at the mouth Obama supporters". I can admit, I only support Barack Obama because he's the lessor of two evils. I'm not even all that "crazy" about what an Obama Administration might mean for this country, plus I can't stand Joe Biden, but I shudder to think of where this country is headed if McCain/Palin win!

I'm going to do my part and cast my vote in a few hours, and after that, I'm not logging on to the internet OR watching the news until WEDNESDAY MORNING! Hopefully by then, it'll all be over! I don't have the stomach or the nerves to watch hours upon hours of election coverage with guestimations and false declarations. I'll just wait for Wednesday morning's news headlines to read "_______ WINS"!


About Me

My photo
Write as little or as much as I'd like, up to 1200 characters. Again, I feel limited. In a nutshell, I'm an exceedingly genuine person experiencing an exceedingly tedious series of events. I'm in my early 30s. I'm a college graduate (several times over), and recently lost a job that didn't in any way allow me to live up to my life's potential! "Deferred Genius" refers to the current state I'm in where I could take the world by storm, if only given the opportunity. I'm trying to now capitalize on the POTENTIAL that I have and raise $100,000 for a business opportunity primed to be a multimillion-dollar enterprise. I COULD USE AN ANGEL INVESTOR!
