Tonight was amazing. after eight years of failed leadership a new kind of politics is about to start and i think the citizens of america proved tonight that we are ready for that change! i feel honored to have voted in such a historical election but in my celebration of my favorite (not to mention sexiest) presidential canidate to have ever come around i am beyond hurt and saddened by the lies that are being spread like wild fire about him. If you do not agree with President Obama (God thats amazing to say!) you have every right to and i will respect that oppinion fully ONLY if you can back up your reasoning. I am so sick and tired of hearing about obama's link to terrorism especially when our currant president has had a buddy buddy relationship with the most wanted man alive for years. DO NOT try to argue that he is a radical muslim. All this does is make you and the right wing party look even dumber. do your stupid research. he is a christian and always has been BUT like the amazing colin powell stated when he backed obama-if obama was a muslim should we look down on him for that? should a seven year old american muslim boy grow up to believe he could never be president someday? thats sick people! I am a liberal for this reason. I DONT CARE WHAT YOUR PERSONAL BELIEFS ARE. therefore you have no right to care about mine. dont tell me who i can marry, what i can put in my body, try to play God with other peoples lives. its sick. leave us well alone. this country was founded on the basis of freedom yet i cant tell you how many right wing conservatives are arguing that we are taking God out of a christian country. FACT CHECK: this is NOT a christian country. this is a mixing bowl full of people of every race, orientation, sex, religion, etc. that is why i love america so much. im not an america hater like people try to tell me i am. i hate the america we have become but i love the idea america was founded on. TO SAY A MUSLIM PRESIDENT IS WRONG IS UNAMERICAN. so to all you conservatives that dont want diversity in our country i say that YOU are the ones who hate and should 'leave amercia' or at least go back in history and get your facts right!
and just to go a bit further: (this is radical i know but honestly how i feel) i am tired of americans looking at things with a red white and blue Vail over their eyes. we see ourselves as the good guys-the country that goes out and 'helps people' but lift that Vail up. we are in an illeagal OCCUPATION (not war thank you very much) of a country that does not want us there, we have troops still in every country we have ever fought in (including germany from the world war!) and yet we think we are doing the world justice? dont you think the rest of the world would have a better view of us if we really were out there fighting the 'good cause'? i am glad we were able to capture suddam and that he was tried as a criminal but i also think that gives the UN the same right to try our president for his war crimes as well. just because he is president of this country does not give him a get out of jail free card. we do not rule the world and if that is the attitude that america keeps then that is when i say i am ashamed to be an american.
i love i idea of this country, i love the opportunities of this country. like our new president said tonight this election is proof that this country gives opportunities to all. so if you believe that is what makes america great-stop spreading the lies about obama. he is not a muslim. he is not a socialist (thought both i dont see fault in) and he is not a terrorist. he wants to stop the terror that our country has been out doing. he is replacing a terrorist. America is blessed. not just by God but by the people to occupy this country and their personal beliefs and cultures that make us the unique and diverse country we are today. THAT is america. not cowboys and hockey moms. that is but a small fraction of our country. thanks for reading my rant.
