This journal entry is entirely irrelevant, since none of us live under a rock, but Obama has been re-elected and I am sooooo relieved. I kept up with the electoral religiously last night. Romney was ahead several times and I thought about all of the awful things that would happen if he would win. That man would've single-handedly destroyed this country. That's not hyperbole, either. BUT OBAMA WON and my friends and I are all celebrating.
I didn't get a chance to watch his victory speech, but I'm sure I can find it on YouTube today.
Not only that, but Maryland, Maine, and Washington have legalized same-sex marriage. AND Wisconsin has elected the first openly gay senator, Tammy Baldwin, in American history. AND our new congress is set to break the record for number of openly gay congressmen and women. AND Mark Ferrandino became Colorado's openly gay Speaker of the House.
In one night, the LGBT community has taken several giant leaps forward! So much progress, my mind can't process it!
Washington and Colorado have legalized marijuana for recreational use. My goodness, so much change. Unfortunately, the death penalty was not repealed in California. That would've been nice to see.
Welcome to a new, liberal, progressive America everyone!
