My faith has been restored

As voters rushed to the polls on Tuesday, it became obvious that a good many people were voting more out of protest to the present administration's policies than for any other reason. This restored my faith in not only the voters, but in our free democratic system.

It took no violent overthrow of the government to achieve a change. There were no car bombs, human suicide bombers, or even a temper tantrum to swap party control of the House and Senate.

It makes me proud to see civilized people behaving in a civilized manner. I guess it is why we stand on the sideline and watch with gaping jaws, the ridiculous, primitive way the Middle East handles itself. With 150,000 Iraqi's dead, one can only hope, they too will one day learn the lesson of civilization and put their savage ways behind them.
