10. Oh, I'm serious alright, and I understand that
doing nothing is doing nothing AND that it has consequences. I also understand that without care and resources already sick people become sicker and there will be many of them at that die while we wait around for everyone to get the clean victory they think they deserve. There is no Death Star to blow up. This is not Star Wars. Like it or not, we move forward in this nation in fits and spurts, because our government was established in such a manner that we are forced to hash things out. Now, let me set you straight on something, I draw the line at allowing others to die because I choose idealism. I choose dealing with real facts in the real world and working toward the ideal. Right now we are working on a giant step forward, one that was started decades ago. Civil rights and womens right and workers rights and now health rights are being fought. None have been resolved by a single piece of legislation or a single court decision. The battles are fought on many fields to move the nation forward.
