So in a vast ocean of red I turned blue yesterday! So even tho' Texas has had a GREAT democratic woman governor (Ann Richards - may she rest in peace!) - seems most of the state favors the red candidate. Especially when it comes to the Presidential elections. And since "w" was one of the very few who was re-elected twice in a row as governor of this state, most (that I've heard) are (not quite) as enamored of someone who favors the same views. Me - I am so ready for something to change. And I'm really tired of the "good ol' boy" network. Most of my really close friends are nowhere near as moderately liberal as I am - and for me - it just depends on the issue at hand.
So yesterday I went and voted and as I voted, I became REALLY excited about the election! From being really undecided a couple weeks ago & then spending time reading (facts - not rhetoric) about where each candidate stands on the issues, I began to feel more optimistic about the whole political process.
Oh, and the whole "hope" topic on the debate & such that's been bandied about by the 2 democratic candidates - didn't Hillary ever listen to her husband's campaigning back when or his State of the Union addresses? I bet he said "hope" over 20 times at each place/for each address - I mean he did come from Hope, Ark. and he used to say "little bit of hope" all the time. Geez!
One more thing - please do NOT bash me for my views - I have an opinion - just like you do. If you can get behind a candidate and know why you are in favor of that person - GREAT!
