Barack Obama Victory Speech November 4 - PART 1

Barack Obama Victory Speech November 4 - PART 2

        We the People Again-- NOT Me The One

Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of The U.S.A. last night at 11:00 o’clock.

President elect Obama spoke so eloquently last night at his victory rally that the speech restored my faith in America. It is all about US! It’s no longer about one person. It’s not a presidency of -- “Either you’re with me, or you’re with them”. That statement comes from the mouth of dictators, and this is America! America is a nation ruled by a Democracy, not a Dictatorship. I now hear words like peace not war. I now hear words like us not me. I now hear words like hope not despair.

I have a renewed hope this morning in America. This newly elected President has inherited a HUGE task of getting this country back on track from what the outgoing President has left behind, and I think he can do it.

On Jan. 20, 2009, the U.S. will welcome Barack Obama as our next President. Let us-- We the People -- always remember what The Constitution stands for.

The constitution as it stands, is valid.

We the people can not let The Constitution be suspended.

The right to bear arms was not put in the constitution to defend our home and property, although it does extend to that. It was originally written into law in the Constitution so that We the People can bear arms against the government, if the government gained too much power That amendment created a balance of power. We the people can never let the first and second amendments be suspended.

Last night was indeed historical! I was always a proud American, but this morning, I feel a new hope, and hope is what we all have to believe will come. We are all connected.

My prayer is this.
And NO ONE will ever make me pray the way they want!

LORD, let this man who admitted that he is not perfect, as we are all not perfect -- keep the promises he made in his speech. Let him be honest with the country, and most important of all, let him keep WE the People first in his thoughts when there is a decision to be made.

Freedom of speech means that I can write words that some people may not want to read. Freedom of religion means that I may say prayers that are not the same as yours.

I light my candle for a better world to come. It’s what I want to see and feel.

Thanks you, Lord.


The Constitution of the United States


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

As caucasian grandparents of an african-american grandchild (My husband and I) stood arm in arm with our 9 year-old granddaughter, whom we adopted when she was two-years-old -- and cried. For the past few years our little grandbaby has been questioning, "Why am I not white like you?"

Now it doesn't seem to matter.

God Bless you Mr. Presidnt!

Great blog. Good luck to all of you in the USA. The rest of us are SO relieved that the US will be rejoining the fold of civilized nations. We have our friend back!

Mary Lynn,

Gotta be honest: I didn't vote for Obama. McCain's beliefs closer to mine. BUT: That being said: congratulations to Mr. Obama, may he lead us back to greatness again. Might not agree with everything he/you say, but we must unite. We must support our next president. It's just been so hard, Mary Lynn, so hard ... and I fear things are going to get rougher before they get better.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
