Far Out, America

It was tense in the early stages, but in the end it wasn't even close. President Obama. So much for "Mittmentum" and "the Romney Landslide." Jeez, my stomach is unknotting as we speak.

Four more years of Obama. Maybe he's not the perfect choice, but that's not the point. The point is not seeing equality and civil rights rolled back. The point is not having Romney pick Supreme Court justices. The point is not giving parental rights to rapists.

Get down, America.

I'd say that maybe we can all get to work on the problems our nation faces and we're all in this together and let's remember to still be vigilant because no President is perfect, but, you know... we have the stars, let's not ask for the moon.

Right now I'm too relieved to worry about that. That starts tomorrow when I get annoyed by just how many family members will have a "in 4 years America will be communist" status update.

Hopefully the 2016 election doesn't start tomorrow.

Happy with the outcome. As for the next election? I am ignoring ALL that crap for, oh, 3 1/2 years.
