Today is the United States of America’s birthday. Today as a nation we are 233 years old. I want to give a shout out to France for their assistance during the revolutionary war without your help there may not be an United States of America, Viva la France. I want to thank the government of England for being to greedy and unreasonable forcing us to revolutionary action. It is often said the best thing to ever come out of the UK is the USA. LOL

Today I was the end of a long election season and I helped make history by voting for the first African American major party candidate for POTUS (President of the United States) Barack Obama. My father who was very politically minded had long wanted to see race relations in our country move forward enough that a black man would be able to hold the highest office of the land, however he passed away a few years ago and did not have a chance to see his dream realized. So while I have my reservations about Senator Obama I woke this morning put on a pair of my father’s shoes and went the polls walking in his footsteps and cast my vote for Barack Obama for President of the United States of America.
(disclaimer) While race did play a role in my decision the fact that I believed Obama was a better candidate for the presidency made it much easier for me to vote for him. I also could not vote for a person like Sarah Palin who genuinely think is intellectually disinterested in just about everything.
