President-Elect Barack Obama

My last post stated reasons why conservatives or moderates should not vote for Barack Obama. The elections are now over. Barack Obama was elected President of the United States through the tried and proven system of this great country. The one that was fought so hard for by the hands of our founding fathers over 200 years ago and has been the model for so many other countries. As American citizens we do not need to agree with the President on issues, but we do need to stand behind him and give him whatever support we can. I'll will pray for him as I would any other leader with so much responsibility on his shoulders. The ENTIRE world is now looking to him. That is a lot of pressure.

John McCain showed true class in his concession speech. He said, "I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him but offering our next president our goodwill and earnest effort to find ways to come together.

"Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans."

Well stated my friend. We are truly blessed to live in such a great land. Recognizing that thanks to stellar individuals (like President Bush) and an inspired government infrastructure, the transfer of power for the most powerful office in the land will be one of peace. What a great blessing that is!
