Welcome back Barack.

November 7, 2012

This is going to be quite a vent-sesh, so if you're uninterested, move along please. I've never been one to blog about politics. My opinion on politics has always been a quiet opinion. I have my views and if you want to know them, ask, if not that's okay! I guess I just don't see the point. At this stage in my life and the lives of my friends, what I have to say today is not going to change their mind or their point of view. Maybe that's naive or pathetic or stupid but oh well. However, last night, America changed. At this point I can't really tell you if it changed for the good or bad, but it definitely changed. Barack Obama secured his place in the white house. Now, I did not vote for Obama in 2008 or in 2012, but as fate has it, he's back. And, honestly I wasn't impressed with his last four years, but I sincerely hope this four he came prove why he's the man for the job and the man to lead this country. He's got a lot of haters, but he's our President and he's got my support. What kills me is people who were not Obama voters being so incredibly negative. It's disgusting to see people's true sides when they don't get what they want. No, I do not agree with his policies, or what he's done this far, but I would never make it a personal attack. And that is what this country has to learn. What we (yes, everyone, we) says about Obama or the other candidate is an attack on the other 50% of the country. While I'll might not like Obama, my best friend might! So in my opinion, we can discuss politics, I'd love too, but it is my opinion that it is inappropriate to go further than that. I don't bash you for your beliefs, so please don't bash me for mine. (Maybe this post should be directed to facebook or twitter). But, for the record, I will make it my honest effort to support this President because, at the end of the day, he is my President, and I will try and have faith. To Mitt, congrats on a race run well. And Barack, please prove me wrong because I want to believe in you and I want to see this country be great. 

God Bless you and God Bless America. 
If at the end of the debate, they can be friends - can't we?
