Blah, enough of the hate speech...
Obama or McCain, any american can agree on one thing tonight:
As a Nation, we have proved that one of our basic premises are true.... All are created equal...
Even people who hate obama can recognize the significance of that...
In 40 years, we have elected a black man to the presidency...
In 80 years, we have not allowed women the same...
Maybe thats in 2012... who knows... but all have to admit that the face of racism has changed tonight...

Who are all these lazy Americans you keep talking about? There have been people sucking on the tit of welfare forever. Do you think that suddenly that will change? The American dream you blather on about is no dream at all, it is made up to convince you that everyone else is not enjoying the life they have. Work hard pay taxes buy things be a good consumer, we need to grow and consume. Yeah what a dream

McCain was gracious in defeat, it is a damn shame that his supporters can't find it in themselves to be the same. Can we please put the hate aside for a while and try to unite as a country?
The hatred in this thread represents the Rovian politics that the McCain campaign has led. I don't think that people realize just how dangerous this is. There have already been two assassination plots against Obama thanks to this type of mentality. To continue this will only fuel the fire. I honestly worry about Obama making it to January.

I personally (and im sure others too), love my country so much, that I have nothing but concern now. I think Obama is a horrible choice to lead this country. Guess time will tell...............and I can say with 100% sincerity: I REALLY hope I am wrong!
