Hutchison Field in Grant Park

The Obama rally in Grant Park is two blocks from us, and we have tickets. We will be part of the 65,000 people that will be in the part of the park around the stage. But there is a lot of Grant Park, and the city is expecting 1,000,000 people to be in the Grant Park area. Hopefully, we will be celebrating the election of President Barak Obama (to be honest, I don’t think this country can survive another war-mongering, de-regulating, Republican president. Yeah, the markets did really well regulating themselves).

I am more than ready to say good-bye to this:

Goodbye and good riddance. And may the Republicans lose this election by a landslide, so that the true fiscal and social conservatives will take the party back from the religous right wingnuts and the captialist-run-amok wingnuts. I know from this post and previous political posts, it appears I’m a Democrat, but I’m not: I’m an Independent. And I don’t mind voting for Republicans that are not in one of the wingnut groups (same goes for Democrats and their wingnut parts).

Did you know there are only eight verses in the Bible that discourage women from speaking and holding leadership positions in the church? Did you know there are thousands of verses in the Bible that tell the stories of women who were leaders in their homes, towns, and religious circles?

  1. I can’t tell you how JEALOUS I am! I love being an expat, but being an expat during an election of this magnitude, an election which has and WILL change the world, and knowing I can only observe and not really participate (other than voting and keeping myself and others informed) has been frustrating. I hope you post about the experience so I can, at least, live it vicariously thru you! Ava

  2. Thank you for stopping by Ava! I have a lot of jealous friends. I’ll take lots of pictures and post them tomorrow.

    And I think being an informed voter and talking with other people is one of the best things you can do during an election season.

  3. I saw Obama’s speech last night at thought of you. It must have been a beyond amazing experience to be there in person!!!!! I am so jealous!
