My friends... as you all know by now I am a self declared old hippie liberal and that my politics are distinctly left of center.
That doesn't matter.
We are in what has been repeatedly called the most important election in our lifetime.
What does matter is that all of us, left, right, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Black, White, Asian, Indian, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist,
Atheist, straight, gay, bisexual, asexual, active duty military personal, veteran or civilian... all of us are Americans and all of us love our
country and all of us are patriots.
We may not match anyone elses profile of what it means to be a patriot but that is neither here nor there... to impugn another person's patriotism is
one of the most offensive and arrogant things you can do.
It doesn't matter who you are voting for... I am for Obama... reluctantly... my friend Semperfortis is for McCain... others on here are for Ron Paul
and I think there are a smattering of Ralph Nader supporters as well.
It doesn't matter who you are voting for... your candidate, all of them, liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat love their country and will do
their utmost to protect and serve it.
The time for mudslinging and name calling is past... rabid partisanship is a poison in the lifeblood of our nation...
... Its time we all stand up and do what is right and reject all of that...
... It doesn't matter who you vote for... the only wrong choice is not to vote.
I'll be there at 7 AM tomorrow... will you?
