My Favorite Election FB posts: Proud to be an American

Here are some of my favorite Facebook status posts, of which I heartily agree:
This election has been historic and frankly, so overwhelming in coverage, reports, posts and tweets. It's been interesting to see how divided people are in their thinking about both Mitt Romney and President Obama. I believe these are good men, with the best intentions for America. Although the vote didn't swing my way, I'm optimistic about and supportive of President Obama. I heard a lot of great things from him that I hope come to fruition. It's going to be an exciting 4 years. In reflecting on what I've learned, I would say my greatest take away is to "pay attention" to the decisions being made moving forward. So as to empower my understanding in the future and hopefully eliminate, in large part, the 'scare tactics' I felt where abundant in this election. - Matt Buttle
I see many comments about today being a terrible day for America. I disagree. Today, as Americans we exercised our right to vote. We did not worry for our safety on the trip to or from the polls and a peaceful transition of government will ensue in January. Today was a great day for anyone who exercised their right to vote. The simple fact that we had the opportunity to use our agency and make a choice today is something that we should be grateful for. It is wonderful. - Nathan Maynes
Regardless of who wins today & regardless of your political beliefs, tomorrow we will wake up & be the same people we were today. We will still focus on being good fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, & fellow citizens because that is what makes this country great. - a post from Nathan King
AMEN to you all. What a great race! What a great country! I am proud to be an American!
