Nickerbokker News

(This was supposed to go my news site, but I am having a bit of trouble with my blogger! Thank you for your patience.)

It has been a hard fought campaign for both parties, and now the results are in: President George W. Bush has been re-elected with at least 51% of the votes. He has won the popular vote and the electoral college vote. It is now time for the United States to stand together with one voice.

As President Bush said in his acceptence speech, Sen. Kerry ran a good campaign and was very helpful with his call to the President announcing his concession. If the two of them-who have very different views-can be gracious, so should we. Especially in a time of war and uncertainity.

There will be many reasons to criticize both parties in the coming years, but let us not forget that we are all Americans. We are united in our efforts to make America better, stronger, safer, more self sufficient from foreign oil, and many more tall tasks. We must work together to achieve these tall orders. We may not get all we want, but compromise without compromising ones principles is a noble thing. We hope to see a return to statesmanship. It is possible...if we demand it.
