So… Elections…

I had planned to vote for someone who was a uniter.

Someone with a message that inspired people, whether to keep going on in life, to keep on fighting even when it seems impossible to win, or to strive for a greater happiness for themselves (because things can always get better).

Someone that I could see myself actually taking a leap of faith for (harder than you think).

Someone devoted to a common vision that seemed almost palpable when you looked into their eyes or in their sights, and one that could over come the doubts and reluctance to step out of one’s comfort zone that have defined the current society.

Someone who knows that they can’t do it by themselves, and aims for forging strong relationships first before embarking on a collective goal together.

Someone who never seemed to get down no matter what situation was, and somehow knowing that when people believe in themselves and each other, nothing can stop them.

Someone like…

This makes logical sense. Do not deny this.

But since Kaminabi doesn’t exist in real life, I figured that I might as well vote on whoever I felt was closer to reaching that ideal. 😛

On a side note…

Seriously though (the above doesn’t factor significantly in what was my decision, but it does help), if you live in the United States and have registered to vote, go do so today if you haven’t done so already and you have the ability to do so. Regardless of who you vote for, there’s no point in having registered to end up not doing it. Even if you feel like your views aren’t going to get represented with your vote, it’s better than not doing anything, and the vote is still a way to let yourself be known in terms of making an impact as to who ends up setting up our government for the future.  Besides, we can complain all we want after the election is over, since stuff will always happen regardless of who’s in the seat, but it seems a little more hollow when you haven’t even made an attempt to do something politically productive about it (and yes I know that you can do things other than voting, but it’s fun doing this).

Why not Jam the Vote when you have the opportunity to do so? At least you can say you were involved in this annoying athletic political event that’s generated more interest than most. 😛

Since she will be overseeing the results, things are in good hands.

    Good Message =D My mom was born in Canada but since her mom is American she was able to become a American Citizen before the election. So She got to vote this time around. Even tho we didn’t have to sit in a line for a long long time, we still got to vote. One vote does and can change things around for the good or the bad.

    Tho I think Haruhi *did I spell that correct* will be the first women president, lol.

Leave any thoughts here.
