I'm thrilled that Obama won and won so well, but while 300+ Electoral Votes-worth of the rest of the country may be popping champagne corks and living large, I can't quite bring myself to celebrate too much. I'm too dismayed to see so much close-minded ignorant discrimination still exists in this country, let alone in California.

The country may have taken a large step forward, but California seems to have taken a huge step back.

I know it's not official yet, but with 99% of the vote in, it's hard to imagine No on 8 can make up its deficit.

This, my friends, is why direct democracy is not a good idea. Just because something is popular, doesn't make it right. Our forefathers knew that. That's why they created a republic.

A comment on the SFGate Website:
The rights of farm animals were protected and the right of HUMANS who are gay were rejected. What does this say about California voters?

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
