Welcome to the Post Election Day Bash! Huge thanks to Diane at Martini’s For Two!
She’s our brainchild organizer for the event 🙂
6:17 am in Germany and I am so excited to wake up and see the news!
HELLO PRESIDENT OBAMA!
What a victory, 338 to 156, good golly the PEOPLE have spoken! How wonderful for my children (and yours) to be a part of this.
What to say? Has it been a looong two years (or let’s say eight years) or what? Anyone else happy this thingy is over? I can only imagine what you in the US have endured in the way of commercials, and signs and all the fun stuff that goes along with an election. Not to mention a historic election. Either there’s an African American or a Woman in the White House. (And NOW I know which one!)
I am so glad to be a part of this election, having cast my vote a few weeks ago from afar. I make no secret on who I want in my white house. I saw a great widget giget on another bloggers site and I’ll paste it below (I’ll link her so I hope she doesn’t mind!) Just go to Nobody But Yourself
(Her cute little blog button is also in my sidebar just click the feet!)
That about sums up my feelings on who should be in the White House. It’s been tough being so far away from all of the action when I actually CARE about the election. I admit, this is only my second time ever voting. I was psyched (and freaked when it took so long to get my absentee ballot – I never thought I was going to get a chance to Make My Voice Heard.) And isn’t that what it’s all about? Being heard. And listened to. That’s the Change I want in the government. Throw away all the nonsense and drudgery of the last eight years and move forward in a positive direction.
You can change a lot of things in life but only by voting can you change the government. If you don’t speak up, be heard, you have no reason or right to complain. I didn’t think my voice made a difference before but once I voted that first time, it felt great.
It made me feel like ‘Hey I do make a difference and I am being heard!’ Now my guy didn’t win last time (see my comments above on the last eight years) but you know what? He could have. And I went out and voted to try to change our country. I hope you all voted. Stand up if you don’t like what’s around you, make a change, fight for your rights to be heard.
I am sure I will say more once I have coffee, like I said it’s on 6:17 am!
If you have video please let me know. I am having trouble finding much – I know all of you in the US have seen it but I haven’t!
