The elections of 2012 are finally over here in the United States. I have to admit it was getting to be quite depressing listening and reading people’s viewpoint on their opposing candidate.
The hardest views to take were the overly critical and hateful remarks spoken or written by people who supposedly live by some religious code. I will not reprint or quote any of these remarks because I prefer not to relive such appalling behavior.
I was hoping to see less hateful comments once the elections was over but no, the behavior still continues especially from the conservative camp. *sigh*
Our re-elected President, Barack Obama once said:
“And I will do everything that I can as long as I am President of the United States to remind the American people that we are one nation under God, and we may call that God different names but we remain ONE nation.”
I hope, and at least that is better than nothing, as civilized adults, we can somehow lay aside our differences, cut the amount of whining and complaining, and instead, change them into positive words and actions that help unite our nation into ONE and not a fighting and divided nation.
Finally, a reflective moment with Lord Jeffrey:
“The tendency to whining and complaining may be taken as the surest sign symptom of little souls and inferior intellects.”
Hmm, I wonder…as a nation, do we the American people live up to our name, UNITED STATES?
Nevertheless, congratulations to our newly re-elected President, Barack Obama.
