I feel a little down after elections yesterday.
I think of myself as politically moderate, but I was pulling for Mitt.
I am worried about the debt our country is in, and what will happen with the hundreds of dollars garnered from each paycheck I make. Is that money being used efficiently? As someone who works in the social services industry, and serves many people with Medicaid, I think not. It is sad to say, but that is my experience.
I think that Obama is a symbol to many people of something more than just a President. He is seen as a symbol of equal rights, and progression. Some see him as a savior of sorts. I don't think he is a bad man, but I would have been happy to see him on his way out.
Now that the elections are over, there's not much to do but continue to support our President, focus on bettering myself and bettering the community I live in. Each of us has a continual influence by being who we are and speaking about the issues that are important to us.
I'm glad to be an American, and pray we will continue to be blessed with freedoms we have always enjoyed.
