Thought I would take a moment to tell you a bit about myself. I am 34 and the product of a failing economy and a world that hates us more each day.
I was a die hard republican for years who lived in Texas. As George W became our governor I realized that my leanings were running more democratic.
I did not agree with the positions he took on our environment, prisons/death penalty and imposing his family values on all. When he became president
I officially became a democrate because I was fearful he would drive us to war. I admit on 9/11 I was angry and wanted revenge. I lived less than 2
miles from DFW airport and on that day, when the planes stopped flying I stood outside on that clear day and heard nothing. It was frightening. I
then saw the leader of my country promise me revenge and I accepted that. Instead I got revenge on old enemies, an economy driven into deficiet and
an ultra conservative set of values forced upon me and my family. It has been over 2 years since we were attacked, those who lead the attacks are
still free to plan again, another nation has fallen without a clear plan in place and now all of our jobs are being sent overseas with a bundle of
smiles from the current administration. It is time for a change, time to get back to protecting this country, punishing those that hurt us and making
this a nation that believes that all men are created equal. Not just those that agree with the president.
