Obama is president... Deal with it!

You know, ever since Obama has become the president-elect I've heard a lot of people say how they don't like it. I can understand that. I would have rather had McCain become president, however, I fully disagree with the peoople who say that they won't do anything for or with the new President because who they didn't want to win won. To me that is doing what we shouldn't do. I say that in this time of economic turmoil we need to do all in our power to unite and support our president, regardless of who it is. That does not mean that we need to vote for every bill that he sends our way, for that would be going down a path that we can't go. We need to dispute and argue yes, but we can't just overall stop supporting the president. Yes, Obama can and probably will do something that we don't like, and it might even cause problems, but my Grandpa John said to me the other day: "Everybody makes mistakes." We might as well say that we won't support our country. That is what we need to NOT do at this time. So all those who read this I would encourage to support our new president, vote for what we think is right. Excersise our constitutional rights. Support our Country! That is the only way that america can truly become that beloved country we all want it to be.

I agree Jordan. Just like the vote on Proposition 8. The people spoke, we must respect the election process and move forward. I have always been taught that the office of the President should be respected and I will show respect to Pres.Elect Obama because he is the President. I don't think that our country showed much if any respect for President Bush. I will teach my kids that the President of the United States, regardless of who he is should be shown respect. I can guarantee I won't agree with him on much but I will accept the voice of the people and support the country. Excellent thoughts....

I totally agree with you, Jordan!! And I tell you what else has been bugging me: all the emails I've received and all the people I've talked to who can't stop saying how terrified they are that America is going to be a socialist country with Obama as president. Let's all get over it! Good suggestion, Jordan!!

Dearest Jordanian.... here is our favorite quote:

"One truth stands firm. All that happens in world history rests on something spiritual. If the spiritual is strong, it creates world history. If it is weak, it suffers world history."
