Watching John McCain speak to his supporters tonight was a bit sad, but yet he filled me with hope. I haven't been a fan of McCain until I was forced into voting for him because I didn't like his opponent, who will run our country for the next four years...ugh.
He was gracious and tried to encourage unity, teamwork and hope. It will take all of that and more as America's economy is slumping and unstable. Let's see what will happen now with Obama in the White House. All I'm hoping for, personally, is to NOT see a repeat of a 'Jimmy Carter' run presidency, where interest rates on home loans were at 19%...unbelievably high and unafforadable...and gas was $2.69 in the early 70's.
I am very happy to see that Proposition 8 passed in California. Thank goodness. I am not a home-schooling type of mother...but if I had to, I would, just to teach my children that marriage is between a man and woman. If it didn't pass in California, it would set the standard, and it seems that most states would follow the trend, allowing same sex marriage throughout the U.S. What would the country come to if it didn't pass...I'm glad it passed, and I hope to never see it come back on the ballot again.
What will the next four years be like for our Economy?
