believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new
jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we
can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work
hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look
like or where you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or
Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able,
disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to
try.” President Barack Obama, Nov 6, 2012 Obama victory speech text, full transcript
I can and I want,
to believe this from Any candidate, Any party who believes this – what I can’t
do is embrace the piety of those folks who want to hang their hat on Freedom of
Religion and then lambaste anyone who does not follow your religion!
This morning I have
read the call for Texas to secede. I have
heard that single women voted b/c “some man left them in the lurch.” HUH, WTF? And other nonsensical statements or thoughts.
It’s a shame that
fellow Americans would rather “leave” than stay and work together for the
country they purport to Love! Well, I
say if you want to leave, Go! This
Country needs people to work together to meet in the middle. Not everyone will get their way – hell, we
all don’t’ get our way in our own households, but each giving up a bit on their
end to meet the other sides in the middle – that’s working hard, that working together for America.
If you believe in
your God, great, believe and worship and cherish, gather, sing his praises as
you please. You have the right to freedom
of religion. But so does anyone else who
believes in any other religion or does not believe in any religion.
But if your God tells you “it’s my way or the highway,” then I say, pack up
and Get the Fuck out!
If you're willing
to work hard, together, America needs you!
