>This is a historic day for America. Although I did not want this particular black American to become President of the United States due to his beliefs, proposals, and track record, I do recognize what a strongly symbolic moment this is for the nation.
Unfortunately, having our first black American elected President will not, in and of itself, improve race relations in our country but we shall see. Despite what the critics claim, I believe America is one of the least racist nations on the earth. We have come a long way from slavery to segregation to the present. This election appears to support this.
A Democrat-controlled White House, Senate, House and soon-to-be Supreme Court will not be good for our nation. This is not the Democrat Party of the Carter or Clinton administrations. The Democrats are much more leftist than they have been in the past. Will President Obama moderate his positions now that he has been elected? Some pundits think so but I do not think the House and Senate will allow him to do that. America is a center-right nation and our government will not represent the majority of the people.
This next couple of years will be interesting to say the least. Change has come to America and it will be change we will most likely come to regret. I look forward to the discussions that will follow in the weeks and months to come. For now, congratulations to President Obama and those who support him.
