Tuesday, November 04, 2008Election Day is always exciting for me, but today's election is particularly important to me. Not because of my own activities - I early voted weeks ago, and have too much work to do today to go campaigning (I was unemployed this time in 2006 so did plenty of work!). No, this is a great day because of the possibilities it presents. Let me give you a list of very heartwarming maybe's:
We can try to solve some of our country's and the world's problems rather than making them all worse.
We can put an end to the disasters of the Bush administration.
We can finally kill the zombie of Reaganism.
We can stop living in 1968.
We can bring an end to the politics of Karl Rove, Lee Atwater, and Jesse Helms.
We can end the Civil War - at last!
And maybe, just maybe, we can come a little closer to overcoming the original sin of slavery.
Now doesn't that sound a lot more fun that another 4 years of the same old stuff?
