Election

Not that's it's any surprise at all, but the news stations are all predicting right now that Bush will definitely win here in Oklahoma, also, it looks like Tom Coburn, the evil corrupt republican senate candidate will win. I'm not just calling him evil and corrupt because he's a republican, but because he is. He used to be a doctor, and he sterilized some women without their consent, and he's voted against education and health, and everything else every chance he gets. Also, the gay marriage ban has passed here in Oklahoma.

Still, no matter who wins, I'm still proud of how many people voted today. This election has motivated people who never voted before to vote. Young people are turning out in record numbers, and actually getting interested in politics. The polls opened here in Oklahoma at 7:00am, and all across the state, they'd already had more people voted by 8:00am than voted the entire day in the last election. People had to wait in line for an hour or more in many places here in Oklahoma.

At the moment, they're predicting it's going to be a very close race again. It looks like it's probably all going to come down to Florida again.
