College Life ...oh joy.  
College is really interesting.

One of my suitemates has a pound of weed she's trying to sell along with other various drugs.

She also got high in our bathroom the first night.

My other suitemate got alcohol poisoning her second night here.

She also screwed two different guys in one night.

My roommate is pretty nice though.

I've been having fun pissing off the liberals trying to hand out Obama stickers.

I'm really mature =D

I'm hanging out with David's friend Jeff all the time.

And he's hitting on me and I think I can feel some major sexual tension.

But only on his side.

I've met a ton of people and I only remember a few names.

There has been parties in my room every night and I've slept through all of them.

I still don't party.

(yay me!)

I miss my family like crazy.

I love this freedom but I want to go home.

That's too bad about your suitmates.
That pretty much sucks.

Obama lady: Can I help you?
Me: I was just looking for some McCain stickers
OL: Ohhhh no you are in the WRONG place.
Me: oh ...dang.
OL: I haven't seen any McCain representation on campus, which doesn't suprise me, but maybe you can find something downtown. Or you could just vote for Obama!
Me: hahahahaha no, I'm good, thanks ...I'm really good *walks away*

Oh, I see.
So I'm guessin' you're voting McCain?

Yeah, I haven't seen any McCain representation on my campus so far either.
And my campus is infact downtown....
But then again, I live in Portland, OR
where 75,000 people showed up to hear Obama speak.
So, it makes sense, ha.

Yep I am voting for McCain for sure. I don't really know many people who actually like Obama which is why it's so suprising not to see representation fro McCain on campus. Everyone I talk to either likes McCain or doesn't really know who they like and after about 5 minutes with me they decide they don't like Obama either. My roommate Emilie (the one with the MIP) and my cousin and her friend are the only ones on campus that I know about and Emilie just likes Obama because he's young so I don't think that really counts.

Well afterall, birds of a feather flock together.
So, it's not too surprising the people you know would like McCain as well. I mean, practically everyone I've talked to is voting Obama... but then again, that's the kind of people I hang around. The only people I know that I voting for McCain are my aunt and uncle. But then again, they are voting for religious reasons... which is a completely wrong reason to vote for president.

Anyhow, it's kind of sad though that there is no McCain representation on campus. It might be that the younger generation/college students lean towards Obama. I don't know. Either way, I feel it's only right to have both sides represented. No one should be exposed to only one side and then automatically decide who they like better. Anyone can be convincing if they only tell one side of the story.

I think religion and politics go hand in hand. Each have to do with what you belive in so they should coincide. It would be hypocritical for them to not.

I agree though, there really should be both sides represented but I hope that nobody is that stupid before they vote to not look at what both sides have to offer. Sadly, I know that is not true and there will be a lot of people blindly voting (especially for Obama).

It seems far too many people forget a major reason why we even became America. Colonists wanted to get away from Britian's rule because they wanted... freedom of religion. They wanted a seperation of church and state. They wanted a government that was upheld by the people, not by gods or relgious monarchy.

Many of our founding fathers not only weren't Christian (as so many religionists claim), there are several statments made by them that there is a wall of seperation between Church and State in the Constitution. It was something they felt of understood, even though not literally written down. This is also why we have "freedom of religion." It is supposed to go both ways... not just church not going into politics, but politics not going into church. It protects religion as well. Of course, the whole idea of "freedom of religion" goes away when ONE religion is making laws that everyone in the States has to obide to. I think that right there is hypocritical. People can't expect to cherish "freedom of religion" while also wanting to make laws under their religion.

Now, I realize there is a difference between "religion and politics"and "church and state" and I don't think people should ignore intirely what they believe in religiously when choosing a canidate, but it has gone too far. Ever since G. W. Bush. When we are making laws, or proposing to make laws on the grounds of religious values... it's gone too far. Churches are telling people how to vote? This is absolutely disguisting and the exact opposite of what our Founding Fathers wanted.

Oh, and I know. There will be a good handful of people that vote blindly. But this is not limited to Obama. For sure. There have always been people that listen to only one source (family, one news media... etc). There is also the issue I was just discussing, religion. And there will be a lot of people also voting blindly for McCain because of one of two religious stances he takes.

Opps, I'm going to be late for work. I hope none of this sounds like an attack at you. I just get really passionate about politic issues. Especially in this election.
