About Me

I think a lot of people get stuck in a certain mindset, they won't allow themselves to think outside of their party affiliation. I try not to do that, I'm all about what's fair, what's right and what's just. Liberals have to make it known that we are not the "anything goes" crowd. Yes, we believe in family and some of us even believe in God. We also believe in common decency and human rights for all people. Some of us believe that parents should have a say in the lives of their underage children. The perception of liberals has been twisted and distorted for far too long. Which is why those on the right use the term "liberal" like it's a four letter word. My mother is the type of liberal I would like to be. A God loving, family values, Pro choice, Pro-America, liberal.

Damn right! We got hope!

This is the guy who makes me believe that things can and will get better in this country. Unlike the doom and gloom guys on the other side. This is the guy that makes me feel as though he is talking about an inclusive America. Unlike the other side, who seems to be talking to and about an exclusive America... Where you have to believe in a certain God, and be in love with someone from the opposite sex.

See, the difference between President Obama and his republican opponents is this: President Obama believes that America's best days are ahead of us, and the republicans believe that America's best days are behind us. Which is why they'd like to take the country back.. back to the 1950's. We look back to learn from past mistakes, but in order to progress we must look forward.

Check out President Obama's awesome speech to United Auto Workers. It really was a joy to watch.
