I’m back! My trusty macbook of 6 years died and left me, therefore I too have left the blogging world for a few months. So much has happened over election season I just decided that I would wait until it was over before I posted anything.

clearly you all do not need me to tell you who won or to point out all the crazy strict bipartisanship on Facebook and Twitter posts. However, I am here to tell you that I’m beyond excited about the other changes that were voted on last night.

Last night we saw significant victories for LGBT movement, and in my opinion the human rights movement in general (but that’s another post).  If you think back to 2008 and the passage of Prop 8, there has been a lot of change with this election. Last night, we saw the election of Tammy Baldwin, the first openly gay senator. We also saw the passage of equal marriage in Washington, Maryland, and Maine, and the defeat of the man-woman marriage amendment  in Minnesota.

Also, we saw the legalization of marijuana in 2 states, and 18 states voted for medical marijuana usage.  Basically, last night, we saw the country make a big turn for socially liberal policies, and I’m quite excited to see what else comes next.
