Ever since that day almost everyone online has been posting their reactions and feelings towards the outcome of the tallied up ballots, Kerry's conceding speech, and anything else related to the presidential race. I would've posted one too, but I feel that practically everyone on my F-List and everyone off of their F-List have expressed everything that I had felt after realizing the winner of the election. I've read every single politically made postage, everyone's different reactions and opinions on the subject, and have witnessed much drama due to this event. I don't feel like I need to express my personal feelings on this subject, because almost everyone has said it for me.
But I am going to say something, just to prevent myself from going insane. I know probably everybody is sick and tired of politically made posts and such, I am as well, but I feel that this needs to be said before I proceed any further.
I consider myself a Browncoat, part of the Independence for freedom from control over our rights and liberties of this country. Just because I was on the losing side doesn't mean I was on the wrong side. During the next four years I am going to fight for our rights, the rights that are being taken away from the American people. These rights are in the Constitution, and even that is slowly being stripped away from us.
Hopefully, if we all stick together and stand up for our rights, perhaps we'll change this country for the better than it's already become. Despite the paranoia of the terrorism and the fear of being denied equal and human rights, I am ready and willing to take this to the next level. Years ago I wouldn't have thought twice about world news and politics -- even now I'm not too keen on anything political-wise. But this past election has gotten me at least aware about what happens in the government offices and such. I want the younger generation and the future generations to come to live in safe and accepting world, or at least have everyone be civil with each other rather than all of this discrimination.
Freedom will come, my friends. If we all stick together with our heads held up high in confidence knowing that our voices will be heard. Fight for your rights, don't flee. We're all Browncoats in this situation, fighting against the Alliance that want us all under their rule. But by sticking together as we are, there will be no way they'll touch us -- because we'll be flying on our own ship, reaching out to those that want their voices to be heard.
That is all I have to say on this subject. I understand that there's a lot of people out there that have different opinions and viewpoints than mine, and I respect that. However, I am asking those that don't agree with me to respect my opinions as I would theirs.
In other news, it's been raining nonstop. Something that I am grateful for. There's nothing better than waking up to the sound of raindrops hitting your bedroom window -- also the smell of rain is even better. Because today is Veteran's Day I slept in. Hearing the rain was quite a refreshment from this week of confusion and slight frustration (problematic mathematical issues that I do no want to get into at the moment).
Anticipating the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake, as well as Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events coming this December.
Also: Serenity, coming to a theater near you April 22nd, 2005!
