I get that people are excited to see something other than a lillywhite face in the whitehouse. But why are people acting like its some big accomplishment? We've really only elected another corporate sponsored, tax and spend, foreign interventionist, bloodsucking politician.
People are actually, literally crying in happiness at Obama's victory. Do they not realize that this is a politician like any other? His economic policies are going to be disastrous. The great delusion of this election is that a nanny state government has the ability and mandate to create economic growth. Well, with no sources of production, the government can't do shit about the economy expect mess around with our monetary policy to sink the value of the dollar and create business cycles.
Way to go America... you were so eager to see some kind of change you forgot about the principles this country was founded on. I'll give you a hint. It's not "national unity" (yes he actually said that in his acceptance speech)
