New President Elect Obama

We woke up to a new President Elect! An historic step, all the more in contrast to the disastrous, preceding eight years.

This is a time of two ongoing wars and terrorists are still out there waiting for a softening. The economy is in tatters and the country in at least 10 trillion dollars in debt. The hard part of governing now begins.

Negative attacks are common place on both sides leading up to the election. And Rudy Giuliani said it well last night. Before the elections we are Republicans or Democrats, but “after the elections we are all Americans!” The people have spoken! It is time to be an American!

We are all Americans!

Added in Revision:
It was heartening to see sooo many Indians, Canadians, Europeans, Kenyans, Latinos and everyone the world over, hoping for an American Victory! To me this proves that America is still the beacon, leading the way. And disproves what the declinist Zakharia and his ilk refer to as the post-american world. Prolly, they confused America with the “Bush America!”

I Voted!

polling precinct in Arlington MA

It was a beautiful day and relatively warm for Fall (60s!!!). So I went for a nice run, found some new trails and then showered and walked over to vote.

My polling precinct was in the elementary school three houses down the street. Yaay!

No crowds! There were more volunteers than voters. They wouldn’t allow photographs at the polling place, so I only got one of the entrance sign.

After all the hoopla, I was expecting only two names on the ballot. There are six candidates for US President!

In 2004. I voted for Kerry, but GW won in a landslide. I get the feeling, my candidate is going to lose, again! Heh, there were three important referendum questions on our ballot here. Thank fully we had read up on them ahead of time.

Paper ballot; you mark the ovals with the black sharpie. Then we place it face down in the scanner and it is DONE!
