The world used to be a place where whenever there was a new person in charge of an empire, someone probably died to get him there. Now, we have these awesome things called democracies, where the individual who holds the key to what is arguably THE most powerful office in the entire world–the Oval Office–casts his vote right alongside average American citizens. Yep, ours is a place where any Average Joe at the polls can go up to the Leader of the Free World and say, ‘Hey, Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend.’

I love this country.
