Now Playing: republicans & democrates
I left the democratic party back in 2008 just after the primary because I could not look in the mirror anymore. I want this country to be a beacon of good and not a war loving group of jerks. Secretary of Defense, (or as one of my close friends calls WAR) Leon Panetta has turned out to be as bad as that Rummy Guy under Cheney/Bush. Secretary Clinton’s legacy is enshrined by her actions or lack of action when a hero of mine stood up during one of her lying speeches and turned his back to her, letting her know what she was saying was a lie. She was talking about freedom of speech and watched as a 70+ year old man by the name of Ray McGovern was dragged out of the room and beaten. She never missed a word in her speech. She represents exactly where we are as a nation; corrupt.
President Obama wants to have another four years in office and the cocktail liberals are lined up to give it to him. You can hear people like Randy Rhodes, Ed Schultz and Carl Wolfson here in Portland tell you how it is most important that you vote against Romney and for Obama---it is mind boggling. There are other people of a noble nature who are running. I just heard that Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan will be running on the Peace and Freedom Party. I just love the idea of these two strong woman running. The Justice Party has nominated another progressive by the name of Rocky Anderson who would make you proud to be an American again and not hang your head in shame. The Greens have nominated Dr. Jill Stein to be their leader and run for the presidency. You have many choices of good people but you want to vote for a man who has done more damage to our constitutional rights than Cheney/bush ever thought about. If you vote for Obama you are selling out, if you vote for the Mitt man you may be just crazy and need some professional help. Vote for honorable people, it will make you feel better. We have very little time left, if we don’t change we will all perish, end of story. The next few elections will tell the story of this nation that we all call home; will you finally step up or just go along and watch as we commit mass suicide?
Some say no to voting as a principle of protest, for me that is not worthy of consideration, you’ve got to fight hard to keep this republic, you cannot sit on the fence and wonder why we are so screwed up. Get into the streets, vote, work for good people and we have them, they are not Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama.

An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, “Henry, what are you doing in there?” Thoreau replied, “Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?”
