This post has stuff about politics and a previous relationship. My perspective has changed
After the election this week I just felt bad. I felt let down and disappointed. Other elections haven’t made me feel like this. I didn’t realize why until yesterday when I was talking to Mary about it. It’s because I feel as if my concerns as an American have been almost completely underrepresented in government.
Preceding the election it appeared to me as if every newspaper and every blog and every radio station out there had some liberal agenda. It’s as if they had decided on their position and they were going to run every liberal story and spin every pro-value ideology until the common-folk took agreed with them.

We have a serious problem when the media can drive the electoral process. All hail the new American Monarch.
