Every four years, the United States takes part in a political process in order to decide who will run our country and be one of the most powerful people in the world.
Millions of American voices were heard and they let out a resounding cry for Barack Obama. This election has brought to the forefront how money could potentially destroy or disrupt the nature of the democratic process by out comrades on the right. This election season has also brought to the rights’ idea of conservatism, which entails limiting a woman’s right to choose and redefining what does and what does not constitute as rape. The right advocated placing power in the hands of the “few” and completely wrote of the “many.”
Republicans fought to grant tax cuts to individuals and companies that didn’t need them at the cost of placing a higher burden on the middle class. They advocated deregulating big businesses which is what took place during the bush years and what played a crucial role in the rapid decline of our economy.
The election proved that American’s were willing to take the fate of their country into their own hands and say that Mitt Romney was not going to put us on the path of progress and for that, we thank you.
Thank you for giving President Obama four more years. Thank you for helping to move America forward.
