I have lived in Indiana all of my 56 years; and we have always been primarily a Republican state. Sure, there have been a few exceptions from time to time, but Republican's always have an edge going into a campaign.

Since the announcement, the image below has been making the internet rounds. Brought about by these sort of twitter posts.

But congratulations to Obama. I am glad to see he won! Everyone here has breathed a sigh of relief!

Even though I don't follow politics (can't vote yet), I'm happy Obama won.

Learned about the voting system last week, and I have to say, it's pretty confusing. The time will come when I need to pay attention to this stuff, but that time isn't now .

And copeys, nice image !

Romney also got North Carolina. Obama got less electoral votes than in the first election which I don't think happens very often.

But, the sad thing is, it's true.



Hopefully over the next four years, you guys get improvements in health care, religious freedom, education and acceptance.

I couldn't imagine a place were; When I go to emergency I would be more worried about my wallet then my head which is bleeding everywhere (it happened), Where I can be an athiest/agnostic/muslim/buddhist/christian/scientologist and not be judged, Where I can go to uni and worry about everything later, and Where I could be anything I want without being judged. But, these are problems that some people do face.

To me, if Romney had won, the aforementioned rights would have been restricted. I know not much about what he stands for economically speaking, but in my mind, when you have problems such as prejudice, no health care, education only the rich can afford and much more, putting someone like Romney in a position that powerful scares me. You have to at least have some compassion for your people, and I see that in Obama. I don't in Romney. As I said, I don't have much of an idea what is going on economically/socially in the US, but I don't trust Romney as much as I trust Obama with the "Presidency of the free world".

I think it might be Xi Jinping who will inherit that title, even though he's not coming from a free part of the world.
