The results are almost all in and the next President of the United States is going to be Senator Barack Obama from Illinois. I'd be lying if I said I was happy about the results...in fact I am very disappointed.
In the words of my brother Blake, "How does a virturally unknown, untested, voted most liberal in the Senate, radical, racist get this close to the presidency? Ignorance. And it's our country's most expensive commodity and it's gonna cost us dearly." I couldn't have said it any better...God help us all.
It is amazing to me though at how far our country has come in a very short amount of time. Think about it, we are going to have the first African-American president! Even a year ago many would have said it wasn't possible...yet the voice of the people have spoken.
This blog will continue to operate and posts will continue to come. I plan to keep an eye on the future Obama administration and politics in general. It's been great being involved, researching the issues, and having the knowledge needed to make an educated decision. November 4, 2008 will forever be etched in my mind.
