I was unwilling to hope. After the 2004 election I learned that no matter what what I think will happen, the electorate will always surprise me. Even this evening I was skeptical.
This is America, people. This is everything this nation stands for. That anyone, regardless of race or social background can climb that ladder. I have always felt a certain pride in America. It’s not perfect, in some ways we are tragically flawed, but the framework is there and it is strong. Our flaws can be fixed, we can survive, we can come back.
This is every thing that I love about America. This is what I learned to believe in.
Tonight, we are finally America.
And it feels phenomenol.

Keeping Track

Today is the day to vote! Please go vote!
Seriously, free and fair elections are a real rarity in this world and in history. Please do not waste this opportunity. I don’t care who you want to vote for, get out there and take part in history.
If you live in Minnesota you can check out information on same day registering. You CAN register at your polling place on the day of the election.
There have been lots of news stories on people lying about who is eligible, when the actual election day is and stuff like that. Go vote TODAY!
