me - wtf?

Fear and hope

So, tomorrow we find out where our country is headed for the next four years. Up or down, decent or not, and I'm scared.

I'm scared that some asshole will shoot Obama as he gives his victory speech.

I'm scared that Obama won't get the chance to make a victory speech because we'll be watching a third election in a row be illegally stolen.

I'm scared that so many people will be so disgruntled that there will be a new backlash of hate in this country aimed at anybody of African descent.

I'm scared.

And oh, so full of hope.

Get out there and vote. Please.

I've done my part!

Cast my ballot, got my sticker.

I voted straight party except on three judges where there was only one candidate. And no on both bond issues.

Get out and vote, guys!

That is all.

(no subject)

While we await election returns... 1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.compucat
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

This is the sunset I see EVERY NIGHT here in Texas. Spectacular!

Oh man.

There are not words to describe this feeling.

Jesse Jackson was weeping.

And all I could think was: Dr. King didn't get there with us.. but hot damn..
