Thank God Obama won.
As U.S. citizens, our work has only just begun. A vast majority of citizens must now contact their Senators and Representatives and tell them that we are fed up. Fed up with partisan politics as usual. Fed up with year after year of things going down the tubes and nothing getting done. We must remind them that they answer to us, we the people. Now more than ever.
It's time for us all to get our shit together and start addressing the mountains of issues facing us. Economy, budget/deficit, foreign policy, energy, environment, education, healthcare, social security, social decay (all of the abuses/abusers, homelessness, affordable housing, etc.), infrastructure, and on and on. I think I'll ask for an appointment - Secretary of the Department for the Prevention of the Rampant Spread of Stupidity and Ignorance.
Obama can't do it alone.
Ghandi said it best - "BE the change you wish to see in the world."
