In my opinion, President Barack Obama was re-elected primarily for three reasons:

First, the voters have made it clear our country will not be run, bought and controlled by the very rich and the greedy corporations.

Second, the president has done a great job in his first term under very difficult conditions, and the majority of us clearly agree with his programs.

Third, we are not a white man’s country any longer. This is not a good or bad thing but simply a realistic view of our country today.

It is a fact, and each of us must learn to deal with that in whatever way we choose.

Republicans have never understood that and, frankly, still do not seem to.

One can only hope that Congress will adhere to the will of the people and follow the president’s lead.

Any compromise must be toward the side of the president’s wishes and programs. That clearly is the desire of the majority of Americans.

If the Republicans still fail to understand that, every one of them should be thrown out of office come 2014.

The people have spoken loud and clear. We can only pray the Republicans will take heed.
