I do not agree with Obama's politics. I do not agree with abortion and I do not agree that any government should have authority to spread any wealth to anyone who didn't earn it. I do not agree with nationalized healthcare. I do not agree with gay marriage. I do worry that Avery may now grow up in a world where gay marriage is the norm. I worry that she will not have enough motivation to go to college and become something magnificently wonderful if we live in a socialist society and all make the same amount of money - why go to school for 10 years and become a brain surgeon or find a cure for cancer and work 24/7 if the government takes half of your money and gives it to someone who didn't? That said, I agree that it was time. It has been time. We do need a change. Everyone should feel equal. Not entitled, just equal. I am happy that everyone can now tell their children that they too can become President and point to an example. If this example were Condoleeza Rice I'd be much happier...but it is what it is. I will respect my President because it is the right thing to do. I will pray for him. And I am happy that the dream for so many finally came true. It is history. Forever it will be remembered. So politics aside, congrats Obama and Obama supporters. We do live in the best nation on earth. A nation where anyone can become the leader. Rich, poor; black, white. There is one example I cannot give you: a woman. I hope one day, maybe in 2012, I can point to Avery's example and tell her that she too, can become the President of the United States.
