"and when you were elected there was a global wave of joy"  
So much excitement this week! I am so, so happy that Obama was re-elected this week; it restored my faith in America and in some way, the world. Hope can prevail. "Thankyou America for being more than I expected" (Ani DiFranco)

&tomorrow, Noel & I fly to Hong Kong! I am very much looking forward to a holiday.

I'm so damn happy Obama was re-elected, too! It's interesting to see what people outside of the country think of Obama and Romney. It seems most people I know think it's utterly ridiculous that Romney was even an option, but... yeah. I'm SO RELIEVED Obama was re-elected!

I come from a very progressive part of the US, so almost everyone I know is horrified by Romney, too. I just honestly don't understand what is going on in the rest of the country. I'm happy living in my little hippie queer Vermont bubble.

What do you know, I live in New Hampshire! I wish we were as progressive as the rest of New England, but hey, we at least went for Obama, and we elected an all female Congress and governor!

I'm so happy, too! Gay marriage was voted into law in three states, and at least one more state refused to place more obstacles toward marriage rights. Marijuana was legalized in two states (!), which I totally didn't expect, but I think that's a good development- it's common sense, and it will hopefully also help keep nonviolent people out of prison. And a bunch of yucky politicians were voted out of office to make room for women and other minority groups. Yay! :)

All of a sudden I'm actually pleased with my country.

I found you while searching for people who list Emilie Autumn as an interest and I see we have other things in common as well. You seem like you would be interesting and fun to follow...do you mind if I add you to my friends list?
