barack obama has done what no democrat has done before - given african americans in all 50 states a sense that their votes actually count.
the republican party, the party of choice for extremists and whacko's alike, has become the party of intolerance, using fear and division to further its own political power.
we should not forget that the republican party bitterly opposed the following:
• The 13th Amendment that abolished slavery in 1865
• The 1866 Civil Rights Act.
• The First Reconstruction Act of 1867.
• The 14th Amendment in 1868 that made all persons born in the U.S., including former slaves, U.S. citizens.
• The 15th Amendment in 1870 that give every citizen the right to vote.
• The Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 which was to stop Republican Klansmen who terrorized white and black Democrats.
• The 1875 Civil Rights Act.
• The 1957 Civil Rights Act.
• The 1964 Civil Rights Act.
• The 1965 Voters Rights Act.

Text: President Bush's Acceptance Speech to the Republican National Convention

AUDIENCE: Four more years. Four more years. Four more years.
I believe in the energy and innovative spirit of America's workers, entrepreneurs, farmers and ranchers, so we unleashed that energy with the largest tax relief in a generation.
I believe the most solemn duty of the American president is to protect the American people.
BUSH: If America shows uncertainty or weakness in this decade, the world will drift toward
I am running for president with a clear and positive plan to build a safer world and a more hopeful America. I am running with a compassionate conservative philosophy: that government should help people improve their lives, not try to run their lives.
I believe this nation wants steady, consistent, principled leadership. And that is why, with your help, we will win this election.
BUSH: The story of America is the story of expanding liberty, an ever-widening circle, constantly growing to reach further and include more.
The times in which we work and live are changing dramatically. The workers of our parents' generation typically had one job, one skill, one career, often with one company that provided health care and a pension. And most of those workers were men.
BUSH: Today, workers change jobs, even careers, many times during their lives. And in one of the most dramatic shifts our society has seen, two-thirds of all moms also work outside the home.
This changed world can be a time of great opportunity for all Americans to earn a better living, support your family, and have a rewarding career. And government must take your side.
Many of our most fundamental systems -- the tax code, health coverage, pension plans, worker training -- were created for the world of yesterday, not tomorrow. We will transform these systems so that all citizens are equipped, prepared, and thus truly free to make your own choices and pursue your own dreams.
BUSH: My plan begins with providing the security and opportunity of a growing economy. We now compete in a global market that provides new buyers for our goods, but new competition for our workers. To create more jobs in America, America must be the best place in the world to do business.
To create jobs, my plan will encourage investment and expansion by restraining federal spending, reducing regulation and making the tax relief permanent.
To create jobs, we will make our country less dependent on foreign sources of energy.
yeah, you've really delivered, george.
tomorrow, america gets to a chance to personally express their gratitude toward george bush, and show the world that it has a collective average IQ greater than that of room temperature.
sadly, i believe that 4 out of ten americans will still vote republican.
...they'll soon forget what the republicans actually HAVE done, and instead, we'll scare them with ads about what obama and the democrats MIGHT do with their money"
McCain: " thanks george, me & sarah will drill that fucking arctic wilderness, and put crosses on all the oil wells."
W: "god moves in mysterious ways. you're lucky the religious right hate obama so much"
