Election Thoughts

Well the day after elections and nothing has really changed. No one ever really focused on the issues and it really came down to voting for war or no war. I wish it were that easy.

In the "most important election in history," the same amount of people as always came out to vote meaning that things have to get a lot worse before people care to make them any better.

The other side of the western world that I have seen here in spain has helped me to understand America so much more, for better AND worse, and it has really frustrated me. My mind races with world affairs and politics which both interest and frustrate me more and more every day.

Oh and I thought this was funny...
