The Day After
I woke up this morning and realized that last night wasn't a dream. President Barack Obama was reelected for a second term.
This election proved that no matter how much money was spent by the 1%, they couldn't lie to the majority of the American voters who rejected the most deceitful, and secretive man ever to run for president, Willard Mitt Romney.
This election proved that the majority of the American voter can only be lied to so much before they see through the lies and realized that the election of the vacuous Mitt Romney and the heartless Paul Ryan would begin the destruction of the social safety net that was begun with Franklin D. Roosevelt.
This election proved that all the racial dog whistles didn't prevent the majority of the American voters to see past the race of the man and know that the person who will look after THEIR interests and not the 1% was Barack Obama.
This election proved that a candidate who , at a secret $50,000 fund raising dinner for his rich benefactors says the following:
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.... These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. So he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
will not and SHOULD NOT be elected the president of ALL THE PEOPLE of the United States.
Last night the majority of the American voters elected a man who believes that ALL Americans deserve an equal chance to succeed in America.
Last night the majority of the American voters elected a man who believes that the young, old, white, black, straight, gay, rich, and poor ALL deserve a seat at the table.
Last night the majority of American voters elected a man to be president of ALL the people, not the privileged 1%.
Last night the majority of American voters proved that they could not be lied to and could not be bought.
