What really hurts

I think I have been able to put a finger on what is really troubling me. It's not the presidential election - yes, Bush in the office I feel will have dramtic effects felt across the country, and yes, it's not over yet, blah blah blah.

But I'm not completely bothered by that.

It definetely has something to do with the 11 states that voted to ban gay marriage. Yeah, that plays a big role in what is bothering me.

Here is what is killing me right now. This was NOT a mistake. There is no voter fraud, silenced voices, turned away voters. This election was real, and fair. The people HAVE spoken, and voted the way they feel.

The majority of this country DOES feel that GLBT individuals are second-class citizens. The majority of this country DOES feel that a conservative interpretation of Christian morals should be enforced by our state and federal governments.

The people spoke. It was fair. I cannot contest this. This was not robbery, or illegal actions, or dirty politics. The people voiced their opinion.

That is what frightens me to my inner core. The people of the United States of America truly feel this way. And I am just one person sitting in the minority.
