Barack Obama for President Of The United States (POTUS), such sweet words. Truthfully, I had my doubts that the American people would elect such a liberal candidate, but I think this is saying a lot about how far the country has come these past few years.
This election, while being still at the cusp of the 21st century, will define an era for civil rights. The mere fact that an African-American was able to break through amid much controversy over particular policies, etc. represents a progression from the racist America that many of our parents grew up in; something we as the youth should be proud of.
I too had my doubts about this candidate as was articulated in previous posts, however, I feel very strongly for Barack Obama, and have for over a month now (once I took the time to evaluate his positions).
To address many common issues/fears:
These are just a few of the concerns I have heard being voiced. Face it: Elections are over and Barack Obama was victorious (with the majority of America’s popular vote in addition to just electoral votes as in 2000).
Change is upon us, embrace it.
