Congratulations President Obama

Here’s to four great years with president Barack Obama. Four years of cleaner air, more progressive laws, cleaner water, accountability, safer food, and action on global warming.

  1. I’m also looking forward to getting rid of Bush, but please define the word “progressive” as pertaining to laws…? If you mean a socialized government, then sorry – I’ll have to abstain from that one. All the rest sounds great, though I belive they are ours by natural right without the need for additional laws. All we need is a government that will punish those who infringe upon our right to clean air, clean water, safe food and protection from global warming.

  2. Dena – thanks for your comment. Socialism seems to be the buzzword of the moment, but when I say progressive, think JFK and especially Theodore Roosevelt. Examples being the average person should have more control over their government; women’s suffrage; eliminating government corruption; regulation of large corporations and monopolies; social justice; conservationism; populism; electoral reform (including instant runoff voting, proportional representation and fusion candidates), environmental conservation, pollution control and environmentalism, universal health care, abolition of the death penalty, affordable housing, a viable Social Security System, renewable energy, “smart growth” urban development, a living wage and pro-union policies, among many others.
