Barack on!




I have never not been proud of our country. I am a grateful citizen. But today I have regained faith in our future. Now, when an African American boy is asked what he wants to be when he grows up, he can dream and aspire and think "Maybe someday I'll be president!" and know that it is possible. It is possible.

More powerful words do not exist.

You can read my blog if you want. but read it through to the end if you read it at all.
I still have "hope" for my country and my ideas and opinions are from a different generation.
I saw a president assasinated, men walk on the moon, an unpopular war, digital watches, handheld calculators, desktop computers and now nanotechnology. Time changes your views. Yes, I was a pot-smoking, anti-war hippie in the 60's. Being able to look back changes your point of view on a lot of things.
Try to be understanding of those who may disagree with your choice, it may be just because we've been down a different path.

I read somewhere this morning that now we cease to be a "supporter" of our candidate and continue on as citizens. I can't wait for us to all work together, as citizens, not red or blue, but purple. My heart is purple.

I will be supporting our president, as an American and because his success will affect us all. I wish I had as much faith as you do in his character. I do have plenty of faith in us as a country! And I'm so glad that if nothing else this signals an end to the campaign ads...

I've been shamelessly posting on dozens of sites, and just wanted to say that I love the retro look and feel of your blog...

I am certainly excited about what an Obama presidency will bring to our beleaguered nation. He is very articulate to be sure, and seemingly has the intellect and composure to be successful in the highest office of the most powerful nation on earth. However, I am a little skeptical about his level of experience, alleged ties to unsavory organizations and religious affiliations. I voted for him, primarily because of bitterness at the incompetence of the Bush administration. I remain disenfranchised with America so far in the 21st Century, and came across a political graphic that does a fairly good job in capturing this sentiment.
