A New World

We end the night at the beautiful beginning of a new era, a new world.

BARACK OBAMA ELECTED 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Tomorrow will be the first day in this new, much anticipated world. Hope and reason have triumphed, greatly, over negative campaigning, bad decisions, pure idiocracy, and the relinquishment of responsibility by so many right-wing voters who stated that God will decide the direction our nation will go.

God has cast His vote, and apparently He is a DEMOCRAT. So take that. If you happen to be one of those right-wing conservative individuals who, facing imminent and absolute failure of the Republican candidate, left it up to some abstract deity — well, don’t tell me. I don’t want to be disappointed in you. Voting is a serious act, and I feel the duty of every eligible citizen. Don’t trivialize our elections. Keep your God out of my government. Get your ass to the voting booth.

I can’t begin to explain the excitement I feel, knowing that my young son of mixed heritage can enter childhood, adolescence, and finally adulthood truly knowing that he can grow up to be whatever he wants to be, including President of the United States. We have broken the final racial barrier. We have shattered it.

We have shattered it. We have shattered the final racial barrier. We are creating a new world, a better world, for our children to inherit.

The rest of the world may finally look upon our nation without disdain, disappointment, or heavy-handed sarcasm. The people have spoken, and all raise our voices to say YES WE CAN.

We just did.

  2. It’s a great day for America…unfortunately Alaska hasn’t caught up with the change. And on top of Stevens and Young AGAIN, now Palin has to hitchhike home and govern our state again.

  3. I got teary eyed reading your post. It is a GREAT DAY!
