What are your thoughts on the recent election?

I’m happy that California stood firm and supported some progressive people, but I’m dismayed about the Republicans taking over the House and getting strength in the Senate.

I would be very happy if the Republicans believe that they can enhance the economy, but I don’t have a whole lot of hope for them.

I’m glad that it didn’t go the way the Tea Party was hoping it would and that the Democrats still have a strong presence in the Senate. I’m glad proposition 23 didn’t pass. I was concerned about Texas oil companies continuing to buy California’s environment, the ability to pollute. I’m bummed that prop. 26 passed, I think it got past a lot of people because it was really confusing.

I’m bummed that Prop. 19 didn’t pass, not for me, but just in general. I don’t think anybody I voted for got elected, but I feel good about the way I voted anyway. It’s the Democratic process, so, even if it doesn’t go your way that’s what you got to live with.
