A recent article from Reader’s Digest shows a poll from nations across the world with a general consensus supporting Democratic representative Barack Obama; which ultimately means their desire for a new outlook on America.
We, as Americans, on the other hand, consider this as a domestic issue to rid the social divide between race and the irregularity of civil rights amongst race, gender, sexual orientation and religion. This has been a hot topic of discussions and debates that has stimulated the American people for centuries, but as a consequence this is the final stepping stone for the greater equality that our forefathers had sought for when composing the Declaration of Independence; which was later contributed by Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation to abolish slavery; in turn, later prompted the greater Civil Rights Movement most notably led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his dream for the abolishment of racial discrimination in the United States and finally, with the general conformity of our great nation’s acceptance of an African-American as President of the United States of America.
The electoral votes came through as the polls shuts down from east to the few hours difference from the west and it wasn’t a close call or a marginal victory—Obama was the clear victor. The tally up of electoral votes at the end concluded that Obama had claimed more than doubled his adversary’s count in this year’s historical presidential election. A decisive victory came around 10:30pm CST with McCain conceding and congratulating the new President elect Barack Obama, showing a more humility side of McCain that wasn’t expressed during his campaign’s onslaught attack on Obama.
Without reservation, if the economy wasn’t in a peril condition that we see now, this presidential race might have been a lot closer than it is. The momentum had gained on the favor of Democrats as the tumultuous events of the financial world tumbling down during the ending few months before this November 4, 2008 Election Day.
With this, came a new change that the American people had been hoping for. We have seen a division between party lines of partisanship and bigots, but in the end, individuals wanting change had sided against their own party and reneged on their own political views, as a result the turn-outs in percentage of white male voters has steered a little towards helping out our new president.
President elect Barack Obama concluded his acceptance speech in front of thousands of Americans in Chicago and gave an eloquent speech addressing the changes to come and that we, the people of the United States of America, have spoken. One part that stood out from his speech that resonated chills in my spine was the story of Ann Nixon Cooper, the 106 year old African-American woman. Ann Nixon Cooper’s compelling story about the various obstacles that she had endured over a century; which she had seen the transformation of America to what we see today—now a new beginning and a new era for “CHANGE.”
We, at Hmoodle, are gracious and would like to congratulate President elect Barack Obama in the oval office. Should you have any question(s) about the contents in this writing or would like to comment, please feel free to contact [email protected].
