I am always proud to be an American, but tonight I’m especially proud.
The fact that a black man is a candidate for President of the United States, and a lady is candidate for Vice-President is a testimony to American greatness. I celebrate this!
I am always proud to be an American. Even though we have our obvious flaws, we are still the greatest nation on earth. Think about this, you don’t see a mass exodus of people headed to our north or south borders. You don’t see boats packed with families crossing shark filled oceans to get into Cuba or Haiti. You don’t see a mass exodus of people headed over to Russia, China, or Egypt.
Why? Because we are still the land of the free and the home of the brave. A land of equal opportunity, a land that celebrates initiative, rewards risk, and consistently demonstrates compassion on a level that is rarely equaled by other countries.
I am proud to be an American and I celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of Barack Obama and Sarah Palin.

Watching the political process makes me proud to be an American too. Call me weird but I really enjoy following politics during election time (really all the time, ask my wife). Especially God and politics. It is our democracy at work and a time to put our best foot forward. Though, like you said a couple days ago, its up to us to sort through the crap. Paul, thanks for going out on a limb as a pastor and talking politics.
Ok… I may have to watch the RNC after all.
Things just got a little more interesting.
In Australia we call that having a bob each way but good on you for seeing pluses on both sides of your political spectrum
