Truly proud of my country

I have never been so proud of my country as I am tonight. Thanks to literally millions of volunteers, my country is back. The "America that never was America" to Langston Hughes finally is America, tonight. This is the country I love. This is the set of ideals I believe in. That a man of mixed heritage can ascend from the humblest of beginnings to the highest office in the land is the true fulfillment of the dream our founding fathers promised when they laid out the Declaration of Independence and said that all men were created equal.

Barack Hussein Obama. Who would have believed, a few years ago, that a man so named would receive the majority of the votes in this country?

I am so proud of my fellow citizens, who chose intelligence over blindness, articulation over obfuscation, hope over fear. I love you all. You have restored my long-shelved faith in this country. You have made me a believer again, and I am forever grateful. Nothing will ever be quite so bad again, because you have shown me that you understand that, despite the rhetoric, we are each others' keepers. You understand that everything is connected - that we can't act in one part of the world and not have ripples across other parts. You have shown me that you are no longer hypnotized subjects, reacting to triggers designed to control your behavior. America is a free country, after all, and we freely chose change.

We have a president now who truly cares about doing the right thing. Who says what keeps him up at night is how to best govern. He's not going to be perfect. But he cares. He aspires to greatness. And that's something we haven't seen in 45 years.

I have much more to say, but I need to call people and connect with all of those who have supported me as I spent this last year working to make this man our next president. I hope you heard his speech. He connected the dots right back to Lincoln. He is the fulfillment of the end of the civil war. He is determined to bring this country together, and if anyone can do it, he is the man.

And what a gorgeous first family we have been given. Michelle is not just physically beautiful. She has a strength of character that shines through. I've seen her in person. You should all be so lucky. His daughters will help keep him real, and help protect all our interests, as he considers how what he does will affect their futures, and therefore, all our futures.

We are truly blessed tonight. And I credit that to the faith of all those millions of donors and volunteers who chose hope and turned it into the most massive change this country has seen in over 70 years. Thank you all. I cannot express my gratitude enough.

A great moment in history. I posted over at daddyBstrong.blogspot.com about the need to find quiet time and reflect on this new day for our country.

I got you linked!

That thanks also extends to you in no small measure. Those like you, you kept the flame burning through the darkest of hours served at the pilot light that eventually ignited the cause, once sufficient numbers saw its light.

I went to bed so happy. All day yesterday...at work everyone was just so excited.

Thank you for all your work, for constantly reminding us of vote fraud.

Thank you for being who you are: a woman totally committed to truth and justice.

The entire world is happy today.

And such a landslide.

Palin: stick a fork in her.

Conception creates an entity that is equal among all Homo Sapiens.

Birth initiates distinctions that will last forever. One of the inherent distinctions is citizenship.

The U.S. proports to be under a Rule of Law; not a Rule of Man. The basic Law, our constitution, stipulates the office of President is to be occupied only by an individual of “natural born” citizenship.

There are currently at least eight court cases that challenge Mr. Obama’s claim of “natural born” citizenship. The documentation displayed of Mr. Obama’s birth in Hawaii has been claimed (by three independent experts) to be bogus. Mr. Obama has stonewalled the release of any documents from the State of Hawaii or of medical records from the hospital. He has also refused to reveal any records of college applications or records and of any medical records, .

Should we ignore the constitutional mandate and confirm that all constitutional provisions are “just a ******* piece of paper” ??

JC, you do not live up to your initials.

Every court that has received the case against Obama being a natural citizen has ruled against the plaintiff, because the Hawaiian hospital continues to confirm that Obama was born there.

Let it go. There is no conspiracy there. Move on.

There was also a birth announcement in the local paper the next day. So are you suggesting that at zero days old Obama's family conspired to "create" natural born citizenship so that he could someday be president?

The lawsuit was thrown out by the federal judge. Several reasons, some being the authenticity of the birth certificate, hospital records, and the birth announcement in the paper.

Courts of appeals, including the Supreme Court will affirm this correct decision.

Congratulations. 90% of my country (Holland) is proud of the US too.
