    I made it a point to fly to my home state to vote for this man. It was the debates against Hillary Clinton and the things they said about him that sealed my decision. I had voted for her twice, Just as I did for him.

    I told the citizens here "This is going to be the next president of the United States." They told me he was not white and would not win.

    Once he had won, they were devastated. I was elated. I knew he'd face all sorts of flack due to his race. He would be criticized.

    In the light of our current president he was an arc light of change. One would hope that our next president directs his attention to the people instead of the 2 percent of the country's upper class. One would wish this...but as 45 would say: "We'll see." Believe me, I will have a say in that --I am a Democrat and a registered voter--and a veteran. As a nation we can and WILL do better.

      Gregory Pierson I was a Democrat but not anymore Barack Obama did not make America look good, not because of his race. But because he started a race war trying to divide America apologizing to the world for America. I hope Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton goes to prison for what they have done in this fake Russian hoax look at the millions of dollars they wasted on something they knew was not true. Yep I am no longer a Democrat and will be voting for Donald Trump in 2020.

    Dear Carol Rogers: I am not in favor of that president's signing to endorse and legalize homosexuality, which the Bible clearly denounces as an abomination. What he did was wrong in the sight of God and mankind. I do not say the former president was perfect in all other ways, but if he decried the unjust, senseless killing of blacks by brutish police officers, what is wrong about that? Anyone and everyone including you should give ourselves no rest nor peace until we have let our voices be heard against the wickedness and the wretched attitude of this nation's political system against black people and other minority groups of people all created in the image of God. This nation bears the frown of the Lord for its racism. The Bible tells us so--- that the curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked. Read your Bible. If America wants to be truly blessed let her stop her hypocrisy and admit her wrong doings against the sons and daughters of Ham. Do you see this nation's capital indebtedness? That should tell you something. When a nation boasting to be superpower, so militaristic, having fought wars she had no business fighting, like Vietnam war, killing innocent people both at home and abroad---and still has such great debts to settle you should be able to see this as a sign of a curse. But it is just a glimpse from this angle. Her deeper issue is ungodliness. The Bible says that righteousness exhalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people. And the nation that forgets God cannot prosper. She may pretent that she is prosperous--- and indeed, she has been blessed with the resources of true prosperity; but because she has forgotten the supreme law of life, to love God with all her heart, mind, and soul--- and then to love her neighbor as herself, she has failed to be that true example of greatness in the witnessing eyes of the world as she was called and meant to be. She now folds her arms in selfishness instead of stretching her hands to the poor and needy. To be blessed one must love thus. It goes the same for a nation. Only repentance and the love of God can remove our present curse. But there is hope while there is life. Begin now to pray for your country that it will live out the true meaning of its creed, that all people are created equal, and have an equal right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Bible states that if my people which are called by My Name shall humble themselves and PRAY (to the true and living God if Heaven, not to Satan or to any other false god), and seek God's face, and turn from their wicked ways---that He would hear their prayers, and heal their land. This land is sick with the disease of prejudice and racism. Police brutality is a classic symptom of its illness. This disease of racism has turned these so-called United States of America into the Divided States of America. What nation can be in unity with each other where so many vies for the right to have a gun and then more guns? The Bible states that a house cannot be divided by itself and still be united. It shall fall. For America to truly rise it must respect the infallible word and law of God.
    AND you too must denounce the civil evil of police brutality. You can't be wrong and still right. No matter how hard you may try.

      Obama has created the foundations for a comeback economy. He had a vision for many decades: regulations to protect consumers from the greedy banks and corporations, he protected us from climate changes ( Trump still called climate changes were a hoax and coal is the best form of energy). Obama has done a lot regardless the blocking of Mitch McConnell and the Republicans ( they now showed clearly about their hypocrisy and self-serving agenda)
      I do miss him. I knew that he was not perfect but I respect Michelle and Barack decency.
      We have seen enough how rotten Trump is incompetent, narcissistic, corrupted but we will see the downfall of America as the results of Trumpโ€™s presidency, only if we can survive the terrible 4 years... or may be more...

    Obama along with his cronies needs to be imprisoned for treason, sedition and other crimes against our republic. I hope the military tribunals are currently taking place to deal with these traitors. Check out the videos of HW Bush's funeral and the reactions to the notes, Bidens, Obamas, Clintons, Gore, Bushes and even the Pences received. On the former president's row all got one except Carter and he was wondering why he didn't receive one.
