My Take On Politics

Well, now that the election is over, I figure I can give my opinion on politics now. Brian usually handles the political posts, but today I’m going to give it a whirl. Bear with me.

Let me begin by saying that this is the first election that I have ever voted in. Ever. I’m 31 years old, so it’s not because I couldn’t. I had that “Generation X Apathy”. I didn’t care about politics, I didn’t follow politics, and I truly believed that if I wasn’t informed, I shouldn’t vote. To be honest, I still believe that if a person isn’t informed, they shouldn’t vote, but I have come to the conclusion that it is our responsibility as US citizens to at least make an effort to be informed.

That being said, I beg for forgiveness for my previous apathy. This election has changed me. I have never felt more confident in a candidate than I do in our newly elected President. And, conversely, I have never feared someone as much as I did McCain. And, I have never had more sour feelings for a vice presidential candidate than I do for Palin.

I won’t go into why I believe in Obama, but I will say this: I am inspired by him. I am inspired by his story. And I can’t wait for to see what he’s going to do to change this country.
