History was made last night...

There was not many a dry eye last night in the black community.  Rev Jesse Jackson touched my heart with his on the screen in my living room. 

I wasn't for Obama.  I made that very known.  I'm not a racist though.  I know how important it was to the black community to win a president election.  I just wish it was someone else.  I wish it had been Rev. Jesse Jackson instead.  I wish the guy that had won was someone that was anti-abortion, anti-gay marriages, served in the military at least some and christian.  That aside, I was very glad to witness history.  It said what I have been saying all along.  This race was not about the color of your skin.  Maybe now, we can all move past that stupid issue.  Maybe now, we don't have to listen to "is it a black thing?"  I always hated that question.  They use it for everything, no matter how dumb the issue.

McCain gave a beautiful speech that just made me even more proud that I supported him.  A true hero.   And a true gentlemen.  I'm sorry he didn't win.  But I know that who won was the one GOD had chosen to win.  GOD is always in control.  HE has a plan.  Apparently, Obama is part of it.  It doesn't make any less afraid of him and what he might do to our nation.  But it does make me feel better knowing it was meant to be. 

I know it was meant to be because the numbers don't lie. 

"Obama wins presidency"=215

"A good president" =152

"A good change"=80   (what happens when we do a 180?)

Obama's campaign was "change" which equals 38. 

"Winner" is 83.

When the numbers coincide., they often mean the same thing.  It was meant to be.

I am praying I was all wrong about Obama and that he will be a great president.  The numbers give me hope for that because I know they do not lie.

It was no accident he chose "change" as his campaign.  It was no accident that he was the one who won.  It had to be him.  I don't know why.  I just know it is the way things have to be.

I am truly sorry if I have said anything to offend anyone on here during this election.  But I do not apologize for my stand against the above mentioned issues.  Abortion is wrong.  Gay marriage is an abomination.  For my opposing those issues, I do not apologize.  Neither do I apologize for stating Obama to be anti-American.  I haven't seen any reason to believe he is for us other than his running for president.  But then, so would Osama bin laden if he thought he could win.  Even good plans have their villains.  Armageddon has two sides to it, everyone knows that.  That is also GOD's plan and I'm not about to argue with it.  I'm not equating this to that, it is just a good example that most are familiar with.  But reading some of the statements of others on here., they are obviously offended at something.  I hope it wasn't me.  If what I stand for offends you, on the other hand.  Well, you know where you can kiss it!!!!!

That was a wonderful message, obviously straight from the heart. You have a good one (heart, that is).

I thought McCain's concession speech was a true showing of his character. Very classy. It showed what a great American really stands for.

Thank you Todd.

Yes Shawn67, I have to admire a guy like him. I really do. Once I got to know what all he was about, I couldn't help it.

I have deleted the personal attack comment by Pacattack.

@Pacattack: now that this God-forsaken election is over, I am immediately switching back into the mode of not allowing any more personal attacks on the blogs. No more, or else.

Only if I agree with everything people say it's ok?

This had nothing to do with the election.

This site is limiting free speech, or was that offensive also? More propaganda...

McCain was gracious.
