Torture Day

I voted by mail weeks ago and it's no secret I've voted for John Kerry for President. Now I have to wait and see how the rest of the country decides to go.

Yesterday several of my mom friends, who do not normally discuss politics, went on a tear and several of them admitted they were voting for Bush. The thing is, the Bush supporters were so defensive, they made their admissions, (the most personally disturbing to me was "I agree with the Democrats 90% of the time, but I'm voting for Bush. I have to follow my convictions,") and then made clear they didn't want to talk about it anymore thankyouverymuch.

I abhor politics. Ken Hite and Robin Laws can have it, I don't want it. But we live in a Democracy, and I have a responsibility to vote. It's not mere choice for me, it's an obligation. It's weighed heavily on me for months and I just want it to be over. Will it ever be OVER?
