I was listening to NPR this morning and they were talking about people placing bids on candidates and seeing how their 'stock' does. Obama stock started at 6 cents a year ago, back when he was a potential, but his stock ended at around $100. Depending on when you got on board the Obama train, you could have made quite a profit. They say that the bids are opening today for the 2012 elections. I don't know how I feel about this. The country is turning into a bit of a monopoly game. I think people need to stop following a color or a party and they need to look at the people they are voting for. Tyler and I agree that the Republican party is not what it used to be. I feel like much of Obama's win was the Republicans saying that they didn't approve of McCain (I personally wasn't a fan).
I don't think Obama's win is the end of the nation (although I am amazed that people are so determined to have elected a "black" president when he's just as white as he is black). I think he will be a strong president with his smooth talking and flattery. He certainly can orate. I listened to his victory speech and he wasn't half bad (although he probably didn't write it himself). Truthfully I don't voice many of my political opinions, but I thought I wouldn't be doing my progeny any favors if I didn't even mention the election in my blog. After all, it is my country, they are my beliefs, and apparently this is my new president:
