First up: CA has two propositions for funding state public education. Being a conservative, and a fairly well paid one at that, this was an easy call. No more welfare-addicted, single moms mooching on my tax dollars. NO and NO.
Next: Repeal of the state death penalty. Um, no thanks. My policy is to execute 'em all and let Peter sort 'em out at the pearly gates.
I didn't really understand the other ones. Nothing about gun rights, abortion or stopping teh gays, so I didn't have any horses left in the CA proposition races. So it was off to the senate. More easy votes: let's support the job creators by keeping taxes low. R, R, R...
Finally, the Big One. However, this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. As I tried to push the bubble for Romney, my hand jerked over to Obama. I just couldn't help it. I guess John Sununu was right about how Colin Powell only endorsed Obama because he's black. Just as I can't resist fried chicken and talking out loud in movie theaters, I just couldn't help but vote for Obama. Weird. Fortunately, I live in one of the 49 states that doesn't matter for the presidential election. That would have been a disaster if I lived in Ohio.
Well, I have once again put in my time as a citizen. It feels good. Here's hoping that places like D.C. and Minnesota don't force us all to gay-marry, and instead succeed in protecting our democracy by suppressing the minority vot---I mean, suppressing voter fraud. As for the presidential race, it was an interesting ride. I thought that people were going to get distracted by the issues, like health care and stuff. Fortunately, the debates helped sort things out and caused us to come together as a nation to judge the candidates not on their ideas, but on the content of their pandering. The only challenge left is to see if I can get any work done today as I busily ignore the polling numbers so I can pretend to be surprised by tonight's outcome. Remember, if Romney fails, blame it on Sandy!
