Welcome to the U.S.S.A.

Well, now that Obama is President-Elect, I just want to officially welcome everyone to the future United Socialist States of America. One tip, get your cash and put it in your mattress, because they'll be coming for it at the bank!

However, I think it *is* very cool that America has elected her first black President. However, I would rather have had the totally awesome Alan Keyes  (who also happens to be black) become president. I voted for Alan Keyes in the primaries back in 2000.  I hope he runs again.

I do want to say that now that we have our first black president, I don't want to hear one more gripe of "I am oppressed because I am a minority." Spare me, actually spare us all, were are not buying it anymore. Obama just said it himself...I can hear him on the news...saying something to the effect that he is proof that anyone can attain their dreams in America. Obama is now going through his litany of "Yes We Can!"  So it's official...everyone can now shut the hell up.

Alan Keyes did run. I voted for him in the primary this year.

Oh well, we survived Clinton and Carter. We'll survive this, but millions of babies wont. It really is sad.

Pax Christi.

Not my usual modus operandi, I plopped down in front of FOX tv from 6 to nearly 1 in the morning yesterday. I have to admit that the big surprise for me was the huge "racial" factor, as a driving force of the Obama campaign. Related to this -- what I might call the "healing factor". Watching the tears stream down Oprah and Jesse and all those young people -- emotion was deep and real. Maybe, just maybe, the chameleon-like candidate that has been Obama, can change and move from dreaming of a socialist state to dreaming of humbly leading the "land of the free and the home of the brave." Well, one can pray. P.J. O'Rourke was quite the lefty before he woke up and became a "convert" to personal dignity and social liberty. Btw, I think Americans lack trust -- there is no social liberty because no one really trusts themselves to do the right thing, much less their neighbor....good post, Rach!

I voted for Alan Keyes when he was running against Obama in IL for the US Senate.

Keyes is the man who should have been our first black President had it not been for our biased liberal media and their love affair with B.O.

Yes, both B.O. and our country need a great deal of prayer now that the most pro-abortion President in our nation's history is in office.

God bless you, Rachel!

My dh and I have worked very hard to elect Alan Keyes. I am so sick of hearing about this being a black vs white election.
