The 2012 election is some much more than the black man getting a second term in the White House. The 2012 election is much more than the presidency. The 2012 election is beyond pivotal. The 2012 election is critical. Every election is important and has historical implications. However, the outcome of the 2012 election can either put us on a path to the future or a path to the past. I am not just echoing rhetoric of the Obama campaign because I am an avid supporter. I wholeheartedly believe that the President and the Democrats have a better grasp on how the world has changed, is changing and how we have to embrace that change or get left behind. They are not whining and pining for yesteryear because they cannot cope with change. They are figuring out how to get a grip on the change and and get ahead of the change.
Diversity, technology, and climate change are the three major pillars of all that we are facing domestically and globally. The world is more than just white Christian men. We have access to information and people like never before and the changes in the environment are causing us to rethink how we operate on a daily basis. I could go on and on but I will not. All I know is that a victory for the Democrats at all levels of government will render Citizens United pointless, voter suppression efforts futile and reactionary politics/policy unacceptable.
