This has been an interesting few days since Election Day. First, let me say how thankful I am to live in a country where we can vote for our leaders. One thing I kept thinking about on Tuesday is how amazing our Founding Fathers were. They outlined so many important things for our government, and one huge thing was voting. Another huge part is checks and balances. Of course all day long on Wednesday were discussions about the President-elect and what McCain is doing now. Some people are ecstatic and others, like my Grandmother, are a little depressed. However, the beautiful thing about our government is checks and balances in place for the country to function properly and smoothly. I appreciated the opportunity to not only vote for president, but also several propositions that I felt were very important. I am anxious to see what the future brings.
In addition to all of that, I must say how thankful I am that we did not have to wait two weeks to know who the president would be! I will never forget walking to the polls in 2000 with Melanie thinking out loud, Wow. By the end of today, we will know who the next president is. Two weeks later... So it is nice to know our voting systems are working a little better every election too! =)
