My endorsements for Tuesday’s election (because I know you all were breathless with anticipation).

Barack Obama, President of the United States of America – I am not a disappointed liberal. I believe that President Obama has done a remarkable job as our president, especially in regards to women and LGBT rights and I am happy to vote for him to have a second term. Here is a list of some of the reasons you should also vote for him: A LONG List of President Obama’s Accomplishments – With Citations

Constitutional Amendments

(check out Public Affairs Research Council for a non partisan guide):

I am against robbing trust funds to pay budget shortfalls. While I’m a gun owner, I am against strict scrutiny for gun laws, as it could impact weapon free zones like schools and other laws that protect us from gun nuts (Orleans Parish DA Leon Cannizzaro agrees with me). I am against increasing tax exemptions in a state running budget deficits. I don’t believe law breaking politicians should get any benefits from their crimes while in office. I’m in favor of term limits.
