While I share the concerns of those who are worried about Obama's ability to deal with Congress, I am quite happy that Obama won the election. It still is not clear what Romney's world view is, since he changed his tune so many times, but it is clear to me what the Republican platform is, a platform that seeks to eliminate the American dream for most of us, that sends women back about 100 years, and that would prevent an entire group of people from marrying whomever they pleased, surely a basic human right. Trickle-down economics have been clearly demonstrated to be a joke, and the "self-deportation" of immigrants is a sorry excuse for a policy to deal with the people who have been the backbone of our country, its creativity and its strength. Unless you are the descendant of a Native American, you are the descendant of immigrants. I am hoping that because Obama now has nothing to lose, he will be able to forcefully pursue the agenda he would like to pursue.
