Believe it or not, I almost want to feel excited about Barack Obama being elected. I mean, I honestly look forward to the day when it matters not what race, religion, sex, or even sexual orientation a person is; and I can be proud to cast my vote for them based not on one of those facts, but on the issues that really effect this country.

This is truly a historic day for this country. But will it be for the better?...or will it turn out to be nothing more than false hope.

I've yet to hear anything from President-elect Obama that would amount to any real "change" in the direction of this country. If anything, what will change is the rate at which this country is brought to it's knees. As if it weren't approaching fast enough.

I've decided to be optimistic about things though. Maybe this will be a wake up call for anybody out there who might still believe in the ideas that this country was founded on. And if you think I'm talking about the "Republicans"...I assure you, I'm not. In this election, they got what they deserved.
