last night

it was interesting. to me, nothing unexpected really happened, except for maybe Buscher's loss. I thought, I think everyone thought, Obama would be the next president and I also thought 3A and 3B would not pass. What surprised was how everyone else I was with at Tessa's house seemed so surprised. Maybe I'm just really matter-of-fact about life. I mean I don't get emotionally involved in politics. That is exactly the reason why I was even allowed to go to Tessa's. I do not agree with much of what Obama has promised, but I also disagree a lot with McCain. Either way, I believe in personal liberties, etc. In essence, I believe in classical liberalism, and I only say that mainly so people won't pester me... Anyway, I'm not passionate about politics. If I was, I would have been against Obama and his ideas for bigger government; therefore, my lack of passion allowed me to be at Tessa's Obama party. However, my lack of passion also made me out of place in this house full of extemely emotional Obama supporters whose support at times made them silly (for lack of a better term). I'm all for involvement, but I try to always think about things and do and say things that make sense from all sides. I don't want to give anyone the chance to misconstrue what I do or think as something more than I intend.

Anyway, it was fun. It was entertaining and today I woke up, went to school, came home all knowing who the next president of the United States will be and, you know what, it didn't affect me. That's what I get for not being passionate, I'm remarkably unaffected.
