The election's over, and I think we got a pretty good result. It's best when there's more than one party in power. That means that there has to be some level of debate over most issues. The congress will still probably be willing to give itself a raise without too much debate, but that's almost unavoidable.

Locally, the Transportation Amendment passed, and I am not pleased. The law is poorly written, and using the constitution to change the funding of transportation seems like a bad idea to me. I do approve of funding public transportation, but this is just the wrong way to do it.

It's sad that we had to make an amendment to force ourselves to allocate monies to roads and trains but unfortunately it was kind of necessary. There was probably better ways of doing it. Aparently we don't have enough will power to set asside money for roads without the constitution forceing us to.
