The war has just begun.

Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States!

"For me it is just an exciting moment to be alive when you see that kind of desperation. Because it is the last gasp of the Conservative era, where the Economics of Greed, the Culture of Indifference and the Politics of Fear have been brought together in such a way that it hides and conceals the plight of poor, working people. We are in a transitional moment the real question is: Can we generate a commitment to peace and justice in the face of greed, can we generate compassion in the face of indifference, and can we generate hope in the face of fear?" - Dr. Cornel West

"The racists were present throughout the campaign and in the voting booth. But they are no longer the majority, and we will see their flame of hate fizzle out in our lifetime. We've entered a new era, and if I could sum up our collective first thought of this new era, it is this: Anything Is Possible." - Michael Moore

Many of the Progressive Celebrities are out rightfully celebrating this victory, but I am a bit reserved. This war has just begun.

McCain/Palin had a lot against them:
Our Constitutional Rights destroyed by the Unitary Executive Privilege of an arrogant elitist who trampled our Constitution.
An corrupted election system controlled by a handful of Black Box Voting Machine Companies.
The Worst Economy in 100 years. Giant Socialistic Taxpayer Bailouts of Gianormous Banks and Insurance Companies. Double Digit Inflation. Devalued Dollars. Global Recession. Impossible Debt and Trillion Dollar Deficits. Millions out of work. Millions of homes in foreclosure. Crazy Energy Prices.
Two expensive Wars failing in defeat.
Global Climate Change destroying the environment.
Failing Healthcare Systems Bankrupting their patients.
Failing Educational Systems ignoring the young.
Failing Social Systems ignoring the poor.
Millions in Prison, and millions more disenfranchised by unnecessary criminal records created through poverty and drug wars.
A traitorous, corrupt, and ignorant Bush Administration, perhaps the worst president in history, and the END OF AMERICA as our Government was Privatized and our Constitution was sold to Corporations seeking no bid government contracts.
Sara Palin. Revelations, the Rapture. and Armageddon.
The lack of pigment at all their rallies.
I could go on, and on, and on...

All Barack Obama had against him was an African Father.

Even with all that advantage, Barack Obama won only 53% of the popular vote. McCain got 47%. 55% of whites voted for McCain. Obama did not WIN this election, George W. Bush LOST IT!

For those who think that this election is over, the war has only begun.

At what point do you think your vote actually counts?

How long are you willing to wait. How much time should you sacrifice?
