Back from the honeymoon. Politics, anyone?

We just got back from our honeymoon a few hours ago. Reading through my friends' entries for the past week, I am feeling guilty that I didn't go out and get an absentee ballot to vote before we left. However, I wonder if it would have really made any difference. I like Kerry, but I can't bring myself to vote for him - mostly because of what the news media calls "moral values" - things like abortion and gay marriage. But I am really uncomfortable with Bush's policies on Iraq, the environment, and the economy. I would have voted for some third-party candidate. And with all the wedding preparations going on, it just didn't seem to matter as much.

Speaking of gay marriage - I have no problem with letting the states decide for themselves; however, it seems really unfair that Massachusetts doesn't get that chance. I mean, it was mandated by our state supreme court - voting citizens didn't actually get any say at all in the matter! I know it's part of the reason that conservatives came out in record numbers in other states (state anti-gay-marriage amendments). I wonder if it had an inverse effect on conservatives in Massachusetts?
