a little hopeful, a little disgusted

Okay, America. We voted for "change we can believe in". Hopefully that's more than a prom theme.

That's the first step. Now, what is this change we're believing in? And how are we going to make it happen? Affordable health care, first-class education, and fixing "this whole economy thing", yeah?

Hoo boy.

The disgust: California seems to have voted bigotry into the constitution. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I'm hoping that gets the old judicial smack-down from the US Supreme Court.

4 is definitely a personal choice that I believe everyone has merit in their opinion so not an issue for debate. =]

I DID NOT get a chance to look at the props properly, in regards to 9 I really think victims of violent crimes should really get the chance to be heard. THAT being said, I hope that it is NOT abused and is fairly applied. Wishful thinking, I know.

11, I really have no clue on that, but it honestly didn't even seem like a subject worthy of anything (especially tax dollars) to me so I voted no on that one.

I voted yes on 10 based off of the blurb in the sample ballot. I feel that there should be a program that allows people to get alternative fuel vehicles. I would really like to see a complete governmental overhaul (intervention) in the transportation arena in general. High speed trains, better public transportation and the phasing out of gas guzzling pollution generating urban assault vehicles.

I'm glad to see that people are starting to become more active environmentally. Prop 2 is a GREAT START but that area will hopefully get more attention down the road as we evolve as a species. ;)

Oh, I voted yes on 'R' as well. =]

the info re: 10 that I have is that most of the money would not go to anything except a small monopoly of natural gas producers--it had exclusions for most or all of the renewable resources. Though I don't have too much documentation to back that up, sadly. Juggling half-truths and all...

11: yeah, that was pretty much it. :)

prop2 is interesting, and I'm honestly amazed at the response to it. I didn't see any commercials for or against, just went based on the voter ballot... and the "against" arguments were rather pathetic, there. :)

Funny to see where prop 5 passed... humboldt, mendocino, marin, san francisco, and santa cruz. and that's it. (impressively, most strongly in san francisco, then santa cruz, then the rest)

still refreshing election returns... (and reading "Life in a medieval city")
