I will just preface this post with the fact that I voted for John McCain.
I was thinking tonight as I was watching the election coverage that when liberals or Democrats are likely not to win or face some sort of challenge, people talk about moving out of the country because they would rather move out of the country than live in the USA with a conservative, Republican President. I think that it is really interesting that I have not heard a single conservative say that they are going to leave the country if Obama is elected President. I heard and read many accounts, some celebrities and some "regular people", saying that if McCain were elected they would leave the country. I think that is fundamentally un-American. I identify (and am registered) as a Republican and I would never consider leaving this amazing country just because someone that I don't agree with was elected over the person that I wanted to win. I think that it is our American right to disagree about our political ideals, that is what makes this country great! I also think that there is a point where we all have to stand behind our leaders and have faith in their decisions, that has not happened over the last four years, for many reasons but we all have to realize that there are MANY things that we don't know about many decisions that are made in Washington and there is not a single person in the House, Senate, or the White House who does not have something ugly in their past.
At this point, we need to move forward as a country and unite behind our new President (even if, like me, you do not agree with a single thing that he has said!)
