Was Jay Z and Bruce Springstein that tipped the scales huh? Celebrities totally make me want to change my vote...bad bad...don't be cynical. Cynicism never helps anyone.
I have comfort in the large number of people who stood with Romney to try and change things. I will pray for this country harder than ever.
President Monson has said,
"Your future is as bright as your faith."
I keep saying that over and over again. We must stick to our faith stronger than ever. For our country as well. America is still great because it has still a large amount of amazing people and the principles it was founded on. Its our duty to hold them up.
But can I just say, having no job, with the economy sucking and not voting for the guy that can fix it (and has done similarly his whole life)...just stinks.
On a positive note, the church issued a great statement. I also will probably never meet the Obamas which is great cause then I won't have to agonize over the perfect thing that I would say to them.
I hope Mitt Romney kicked down some doors about Mormonism, but last nite I wondered if he would have been elected if he wasn't Mormon. We will never know. But I was glad that he was a good one. (please let me never meet Harry Reid either, ooohhhh now that Mormon!) It was really inspiring to see the Southern states rally for Romney. I hope he does not go away and still tries to make a difference. That is what I will be doing. Our voices were still heard. 57,058,176 of us.
Dear Mitt Romney, you rock. Thank you for going into the ring.
ps. please if you did vote for Obama and I see you, lets not talk about politics. This is my very tamed down opinion of the election and I'm trying really hard to be positive...or at least not go cry all day and crawl in a hole. Thank you.
