What it's all about...

I'm a 39 year old wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt & friend. That should tell you who I'll be writing about most of the time.

Just Do It!

How could anyone NOT want to vote in this election? Even if you think your vote doesn't count, do it anyway! We all have a stake in how the country is run for the next 4 years, I just don't get it. This has been the most personally taxing election season for me. I voted for Hillary in our Caucus, and although I was disappointed that she didn't make it, I was so proud that a woman made it so far. I did my homework and became confident in Obama's abilities. I was proud once again while watching the first African-American accept a major party's nomination. My party's nomination. I have researched everything I can find to be sure, and there is no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama NEEDS to be the next President of the United States. I hope that the majority sees it that way.
We have a Definition of Person amendment on our ballot this year. No question, voted NO.
I also voted for Jared Polis for Congress. If elected, he will become the 3rd openly gay member of Congress. That's exciting. And no, I didn't vote for him just because he's gay.
I wish I could vote on California's Prop 8. I would proudly vote NO. Again, I hope that the majority of people do the same.
I have talked about the candidates and issues of this election so much, I will be happy to talk about something else after the results are in. But I would gladly keep up the debate if it meant that EVERYONE who is able, would do their homework and vote. I will sit and watch the results trickle in, and believe that THIS time, the right person will be elected.
