Nathan: Get It Out Of Your System

On his Facebook wall, Nathan Empsall, a Coeur d'Alene High graduate who desscribes himself as “a pro-life, anti-pot liberal from two very red states who knows about politics & has been on the losing end of some bruising elections”:

It will be okay. As a former professor of mine used to say, a look at history proves that America survives in spite of her leaders, not because of them. He's right. Furthermore, I survived Bush, and you will survive Obama. That's what America does: She survives, endures, grows, leads, and perseveres, and when she does make mistakes (we'll disagree about last night, but surely we agree that there have been devastating mistakes before), she almost always makes up for them. To despair is to lose your patriotism for America your faith in God, and I know you're stronger than that. More here.

Question: You know Nathan's right, right?
