It took four years of fighting with everything we had, and then it took five days for the election to finally be called, but now it’s official. Several major news outlets just declared Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election, making him the President-elect of the United States.
This is amazing news on so many levels. First, it means America is finally going to have a patriotic, dependable, honest President again. We’ve elected a good man as President of the United States, after having gotten it so wrong four years ago. America is about to be in safe hands now.
It also means we’ve just elected Kamala Harris as Vice President of the United States. She’s the first woman Vice President, the first Black Vice President, the first Black woman as Vice President, and the first Asian woman as Vice President. Yes, she’s making historic progress in that many different ways. It’s a victory for progress and a defeat for the glass ceiling.
America is still dealing with a worsening pandemic, an economic crisis, troubled standing in the world, and a chunk of the population that’s screwed up enough to have voted twice for a psychotic traitor. But at least the good guys are playing offense instead of defense now. America is going to be America again. It’s about time.
