Congratulations

President Elect Senator Barack Obama.

Senator Obama ran a masterful campaign.

My countrymen have chosen well.

The election is over.

The hard work begins.

We salute the winner

“With Malice toward none, with charity for all,

with firmness in the right,

as God gives us to see the right,

let us strive on to finish the work we are in,

to bind up the nation’s wounds.

Vote

The right and privilege to vote is a great grace of liberty.
Today I had the privilege to work as a poll monitor for the ACLU.
It was my job to see that all people coming to exercise their right to vote was respected and protected.
By noon 10 incidents had occurred. Most were favorably resolved.
A very conservative person who had a passionate dislike for the ACLU had difficulty voting.
We were able to help him resolve the problem.  He thanked us profusely.
The only time American’s lose is when they don’t vote.

Keep democracy strong.

Vote!

Use it or lose it.
