A Time To Chill

The election is over, we had a winner by both popular and electoral vote. People have spoken, not all of them one particular "race", and for many different reasons and personal beliefs. The months ahead for our new president and our country will be very tedious and trying times, and he will have a huge job ahead of him, trying to bring about the changes he has spoken about, as well as gaining further approval of the American people. We all know this.

Although the election itself is over, I wanted to share this article. I think it makes a lot of good points about the behavior of the American people regarding whether they do or don't like certain leaders, and how we react and treat one another in regard to this.


The truth is, we have a new president who will take office in January, and we need to pull together as a nation, and support each other, our leaders, our country and its military. It doesn't mean we have to agree on everything, and it doesn't mean that we can't still fight for our beliefs and issues, that's freedom and we still have that, contrary to the freak-outs of everyone in the 'apocalyptic zone'.

We need to move forward with a positive, fresh outlook. We need to help make the changes needed, support our country and let everyone know that we are still, and will always be "The United States Of America".

Yeah, it would be nice if everyone would chill. No bragging and no whining. But, I have my doubts. LOL ;-)

I'm very hopeful and that's enough to make me chill for now. A little smoke wouldn't hurt either. ;)

I was so pleased and full of hope when Obama got the vote.Of course I don't live and experience daily life in the US of A but I just feel that he has something better to bring to the people. I hope he remains human and I hope he delivers the best for those who really struggle but of course, I hope he manages to unite people and maybe aim for a simpler way of being..

Always? That's pretty damn optimistic. But I suppose the Roman's thought the same way before they fell.

I like him, but I don't think that we will be able to fix much because Americans are in general a spoiled lot and think they are special.

I'm not much interested in a United States of America, I'm interested in a United Countries of the World.

That and kissing Sarah Palin's christian tits.
