The verdict is in: Change the course
We are tired of the hate-mongering. We are tired of the policies of divisiveness and war. We are tired of the scare tactics.
Americans have sent a clear message that we need to change the course and the drivers. The president is finally getting the message and started with Rumsfeld.
Americans also sent a clear message that we reject to be divided along religious lines as some bigots would like us to be. Islamophobic candidates lost in many races across the country.
Additionally, Minnesota elected our country's first Muslim Member of Congress. Kudos to the people of Minnesota who chose to make history and show the rest of the world that we Americans continue to live up to our pluralistic and tolerant values and traditions.
