Decision 2012: America’s Historic Quest for Freedom, Justice, Equality and Equity

Will this be an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, you can pursue your own happiness and you can make it here in America if you try?
- President Barack Obama
44th U.S. President

(Reconstruction III era)

When I ran away from slavery, it was for myself; when I advocated emancipation, it was for my people; but when I stood up for the rights of women, self was out of the question, and I found a little nobility in the act.
- Frederick Douglass
(Civil War-Reconstruction I era)

I repose in this quiet and secluded spot, not from any natural preference for solitude, but finding other cemeteries limited as to race, by charter rules, I have chosen this that I might illustrate in my death the principles which I advocated through a long life, equality of man before his Creator.
- Thaddeus Stevens
(Civil War-Reconstruction I era)

All my life I’ve been sick and tired. Now I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.
- Fannie Lou Hamer
(American Civil Rights era)

Hands that once picked cotton can now pick presidents.
- Jesse Jackson
(Reconstruction II era)

I don’t measure America by its achievement, but by its potential.
- Shirley Chisholm
(Reconstruction II era)

Until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
(American Civil Rights era)

    You are right. I am so excited about our country’s decision. I thought it was tacky that it took Romney hours to congratulate his president, but it also showed his character. Who would want that representing the country at foreign tables? I also like what I heard on the news this morning. One of the commentators said, “I am a Christian and this should tell the world that Billy Graham does not speak for all Christians.” I have to agree with him because God and His word are bigger than two issues that man has no control over. “Free Will” has been around since the fall of man and it will be around to the end of time, so let man decide their own fate. Jesus came to save those who believe in Him and our responsibility is to teach the truth as we believe and it is man’s choice to believe it or not.

    Yes, we thought Billy Graham’s move was too political to be “pure.”
