The voting has finished the country has a new president and Californians have spoken and voted Yes on Proposition 8. After McCain learned that Obama had won the Presidential race, McCain responded with this speech. Showing his maturity, and this can be found in the 4 paragraph of the previous link, "At the mention of Obama's name, McCain's supporters booed and hissed, but he quickly silenced them, and after a pause, he spoke of Obama's ability to inspire disenfranchised voters and touted this election's special place in history." I really loved that about him. What good was it going to do to boo the new Presidents name, at McCain's party?? It's like booing at a football game. One team has to lose. Big an adult and congratulate them for their hard work, don't boo them because You lost. I loved how McCain said Obama is THE new President of the USA. We must respect him and follow him as Americans. We may not always agree but he was chosen as our leader. As citizens of this country it is our duty. It is the same in the church when someone receives a calling, you raise your hand to the square to sustain them and promise to support them. You might not like them as a person, but they are there to do a job not win the best friend award.
So, my main point is even though you might not like the new laws or President its going to be that way for a while. The votes are in, ACCEPT them!!!
If that doesn't fit your cup of tea, then maybe this will.
We live in AMERICA, the greatest land on earth. You are welcome to leave if you do not like it here. No one id forcing you to stay! There are hundreds, if not thousands of people dying (literally) to touch AMERICAN soil. They would gladly accept a chance to be free and live for the AMERICAN dream. Count yourself lucky, you are already here.
A quote from Thomas Jefferson that I love:
My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
