In Anticipation of the Inauguration
I have contributed to Obama's bid for president since February 2007 (when he spoke at the Birch Aquarium in San Diego). I have given small amounts over these (almost) 2 years in the hopes that the policies of the current administration can be overturned. I embrace Obama's call to stop spending money on illegal wars and instead invest it in infrastructure, responsible energy policies, education, education, education, and healthcare. I celebrate this victory as a victory for all people, Americans as well as those who live outside our boundaries. I celebrate this victory for all party affiliates, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. I celebrate this victory for all political leanings, conservatives and progressives. I celebrate this victory as a call to unite us in pursuing peace and prosperity. I celebrate this victory with pride. Thank you Barack for never wavering and thank you America for doing the right thing!
