Where will you be November 4th? I don't understand anyone who will not vote this year. I don't understand how stupid some people are. Some people don't want to know the truth. They just want to make up the truth and call it truth. Truth doesn't lie.

Barack Obama has run a superb campaign. Superior to anyone else. George W Bush had his Rove brain to be his axis of evil architect. Barack has used a different style. But no one can say that Barack Obama has no new ideas, is sloppy on details or the long view, hasn't shown true grit and fortitude, can't stand up to his own party (consider the stand he took on when he ran against the Clinton team) ~ this is a fantastic use of "community" organizing only on a national scale. His new ideas are shown in his various policies and his broad view of how to take this country forward into the 21st century although we are down and not quite out - but the new ideas of how to run a Presidential campaign are overflowing and they have worked quite well.

I am hoping and praying that this is all in God's plan. I question God's plan when I have to continually learn of the horrendous treatment of human beings by other human beings here and in other countries, of the lies we have been putting up with in this land of faux democratic government, tapping our phone lines, reading our emails, and torturing all in "the name" of what's best for the USA, helping corporate USA at the expense of the middle class and the poor, trashing habeas corpus... If God has a plan, then we need to help God implement the optimum plan. Otherwise, we get the same pool of Republicans to fill positions that have been filling those positions for the Bush years. With an unimaginable national debt, jobs lost on the rise with no end foreseeable, crumbling roads and bridges, many school buildings not fit to be open, health care causing people to file bankruptcy, foster children languishing in a system that is broken and under-funded, it is time to consider we have left this administration to go unchecked, unheeded and blindly trusted beyond a reasonable amount of time and chances to redeem themselves.

Time to wake up or die sleeping at the metaphorical wheel.

Stepping down from my soapbox for the night.
