America voted, and America won
Wow, I'm tired of reading all these crybabies whining because President Obama won.
Get over it, and get behind your country.
I guess I have more faith in America than most of these folks have. That is probably due to me serving this great nation in the U.S. Navy for 20 years. It taught me that all Americans are just that ... Americans. They are not just a certain political party, or ethnic group, but Americans.
As a matter of fact, I served mostly under Republican commander in chiefs ... Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Bush Sr. It didn't matter to me, being a life-long Democrat. They where the commander in chief and that was that.
I didn't pick which American I was to protect, I helped protect all of America.
It is time for Americans to learn that we are a nation of Americans, not just Republicans or Democrats or Independents – Americans.
Americans voted, President Obama won.
For you folks who can't get behind America, I invite you to leave if you hate it here so much. Let me warn you though, I have traveled all around the world and can say with no doubt in my mind that America for all her faults is still the best country in the world, hands down.
So get behind her, stand up for her, love her, or get the heck out of the way because we are moving Forward, with or without you.
U.S. Navy, Retired
