Charles L. Lambert believes America's choice for president is stupid, as he put it, because voters chose to move forward with President Barack Obama and not with Mitt Romney and the GOP taking this country back to the 18th century.

To answer Lambert's question about living without freedom, I pose this question to him: How many slaves are on his family tree?

I encourage Lambert to scream at the Republican Party because it is his belief that our freedom is about to be taken away. Scream at the Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin types who want to tell a woman about her body and God's intent. Scream at the GOP, who under Bush 43 started this country's deficit that grew to $16 trillion, causing 23 million to be without work, plus a housing crisis and a war without a cause. Scream on that.

America is more than one race. The Republican Party knows that now, and as this country moves forward, there is hope for all of us, not just some.
