Hope for the Future

by Rep Ron Paul

With the election behind us, our country turns hopeful eyes to the future.  I have a few hopes of my own.

I congratulate our first African-American president-elect.  Martin Luther King, Jr. certainly would be proud to see this day.  We are stronger for embracing diversity, and I am hopeful that we can continue working through the tensions and wrongs of the past and become a more just and colorblind society.
