Perhaps you should check some facts before you go celebrating and saying Obama is the greatest victory of all time.

In 1980 Ronald Reagan won 489 electoral votes to Obama's 364, that's 125 more. That would be a much bigger victory, yes, I would dare say the 'L' word, landslide.

Obama did get 52% of the popular vote, and McCain got 46%. Fine. That's only 6%, a difference of some 7.7 million people. That's hardly over-whelming. Almost 57 million people turned out to vote against Obama. It isn't hate, it isn't fear, it's as simple as a disagreement of principles and ideology. The fact that you grab onto hate and fear as motivation says more about you than us. We stick to the facts.

That landslide of Reagan's was the result of him sticking to true conservative principles and this country prospered under that leadership. We had to get through a Jimmy Carter to get a Reagan. We can get through an Obama to get another Reagan.

Until then, we will support Obama, but we will not violate the truth, or the inegrity of this country. That's what being in a democracy means.
