Yes We Can



My friends, hopefully we have heard McCain and the rest of the hate machine say, "My friends." for the last time. I cried and screamed with glee all night long as the results literally poured in. As McCain said, "The American people have spoken loud and clear." We are on the verge of great things. We need to be strong, united, and give our new leadership the support to bring our nation to greatness once again. We need nothing short of a new New Deal. The modern Republican beast has systematically dismantled the greatness of FDR's legacy. We can rebuild. Yes we can!

This is a huge day for all Americans. It is an extra special day for African Americans and all other groups of people that have ever had their civil rights violated. We can bring fairness, liberty, prosperity, and equal opportunities for pursuit of happiness to all groups of Americans. Yes we can!

I live in Florida. I am revitalized to live in a blue state once again. But I am also sad that my state voted against equal rights for homosexuals. Homosexuals are just one of many groups of people that are still having their civil rights violated. Whether you accept homosexuality or not, this is simply a civil rights issue. This issue is addressed in the original fibers of our nation's blueprints - THE CONSTITUTION. Separation of Church and State. All Men Are Equal. So my fellow Americans, clearly all groups deserve the same rights of humanity, and we can make sure that all of our citizens live free. Yes we can!

In McCain's concession speech he said that he ran a good campaign and he didn't know what more he could have done. Hey Johnny how about you could have talked about what you were planning to DO instead of just fanning the flames of hate. I posted a video clip a couple of weeks ago where McCain corrected a woman at one of his rallies. He informed the lost soul that Obama is not an Arab, he is a decent family man. McCain made it loud and clear that he supports hatred of people from a large section of the world. We can restore America's great melting pot society of acceptance and fairness that originally built this country and excelled it to greatness. Yes we can!

Our voices have been heard. McCain is out. Obama is in. The old way is out. The new way is in. We now have the ability with every election to reshape our nation. We can shape it any way we want. We have the ability to shape with every election. Every issue and candidate from our towns to our cities to our counties to our states to our NATION. We can undo the cumulative horror that the greedy leadership of the GOP has brought to us over the last century. Yes we can!

I'm proud to be an American. We are going to bring our nation back to greatness. YES WE CAN!

I'm ecstatic too, but there IS so much work to do! And the bitter rightwingers have already started scheming.

Somehow, though, I see Obama as a very unifying force. Maybe some of them will realize that unity and building up is better than hate & tearing down.

The night had a few disappointments, as you noted. But while pausing to look at how far we have come, we shouldn't let how far we have to go come in the way of celebrating human progress.

Helen, I think you are right in regards to Obama being a unifying force. His campaign should serve as a good preview as to how he will take on the big problems our country is ailed with. He is thoughtful, graceful, and formulates and executes plans efficiently, effectively, and gracefully.

Comrade, progress is certainly cause for celebration. This is a very happy day for the entire world.

Good points. Last night we took two steps forward and one step back. CA and FL both voted for Obama and voted against civil rights. Its almost like this country can only tolerate so much civil rights at any one point in time. Uggg...
