I was fairly confident that President Obama would win reelection in a fair fight. Even though he deserves it on his own merit, how could Obama not have won, given the lies and flip-flops that constituted the Mitt Romney campaign? Still, like many liberals, I went to bed last night just a little bit in shock that our democratic election process actually worked. We showed that our voices and our votes can’t be suppressed, no matter how strong the opposition.
In spite of the voter ID laws, the reduction in early voting hours, the gerrymandering, and the widespread voter suppression campaigns by groups such as True the Vote, Obama still achieved a decisive victory.
