I Didn't Vote for Obama, but, . . .

Posted by Marty Jensen

I didn't vote for Barack H. Obama. However, he has won the election, and it is my duty as a citizen of the United States to support him--to the extent he honors and abides by the oath of office which he will take, which is:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

I am hopeful that President-elect Obama's term will be of great benefit to our nation. In particular, I hope that his election will positively influence blacks and other minority races, giving them encouragement to fully engage in the opportunities this nation affords each of us.

I recognize the personal sacrifices which President-elect Obama and his family have made and will make. I am grateful for them. I pray for them. I hope that all Americans will rally around our new President and help him as he guides our nation. May he do so in a sound Constitutionally-based manner.
