Hmm, Vermont Seems Nice...

It's over. John Kerry just called and conceded the election to "W". I'm sick. The American nightmare continues. Four more years of a moronic redneck agenda. All I can do now is hope that the ignorant bastard doesn't get us all killed. And as if that wasn't bad enough, Oklahoma voters elected Tom Coburn - the crazy, extremest, as far right as you can get, so conservative that the Republican party considers him too conservative, republican - to the Senate. But that's not all. Oklahoma voters also adopted a Constitutional amendment that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman. It passed with 76% voting to approve the measure. Sigh. What a bunch of hate-filled, narrow-minded pricks. That amendment was totally unnecessary. Everything in the amendment was already Oklahoma law. It's just hate driven crap to remind everyone that it's "Wrong" to be gay. What a load of shit. I hope that 50 years from now we look back on this stupid anti-gay mentality with as much contempt and shame as we have now for slavery and segregation.

I don't belong here in Oklahoma. I'm too liberal for this stupid state. My presidential votes never count because this is a republican stronghold. And I'm surrounded by the self-righteous-morality-police who refuse to tolerate anyone who doesn't share their values. It's so discouraging to be a democrat in Oklahoma. I'm thinking about moving to Vermont. That seems like a nice, liberal place. I'd probably like it there. Yeah, it's cold there, but it would be a small price to pay. Now all I have to do is convince my friends and family to join me.

So, that's it. I usually try not to turn this website into my personal political forum, but I needed to let off steam. I've got more pleasant things to write about, such as last weekend, but I need to work out a technical issue so I can get some pictures uploaded. Stay tuned. There's a happier update on the way.
