Time vs. Ideals -- and the Kucinich vote.
Advertisements [?]
Not all of us know when we will leave this mortal coil. Some of us do. And for quite a few with this knowledge, while the means to help us is there... it is out of our hands.

While many ideals are worth fighting and yes, even dying for... it is a disheartening truth that so many, even here, would choose the perfect over the good when it comes to other people's lives.

We are talking about our families. Our selves. Our brothers and sisters, and cousins and nieces and nephews. We are talking about our fellow Democrats and even Republicans who just don't get it.

When you get down to it, our health and our families are all we really have.

That Kucinich would vote WITH the Republicans AGAINST healthcare reform will only be a principled stand the day he forgoes his own insurance until a Single Payer health system is in place for all Americans. This man has fought hard against war and needless death.

Last night he voted, with Republicans, for the latter.
