The Vote from Sea to Shining Sea


I do not think I can express myself strongly or even clearly enough to tell all of us who will be on the front lines in November how important it will be to get the vote out for the president.  Romney is not John McCain, tired and out of touch. He is, I think, more charismatic than McCain and more able to convert strong decibels into electoral results.   Romney is smart even IF he is a bully and I think he was and is.  A man that is smart but has NO scruples is dangerous.  Etch-A-Sketch was the perfect metaphor for this empty suit Romney who will say anything and do anything to get people of little questioning intellect often racist-in-the-extreme to vote for for him. 

This is the most important election of my life and I have seen a few elections.  It is so on many levels some of which are self-evident. Romney today spoke at Liberty "University" -- an uncredited school of academic nincompoops who would love nothing more than to merge Christian religious belief with the state PRECISELY what our Founders NEVER wanted.  He took that opportunity to gay bash again affirming state's rights to kill a civil right for one minority an action only a bully could take.  Funny in 1994 when he ran for the Senate in Massachusetts against Kennedy some gay rights activists seem to remember pink flyers Romney's campaign passed out in the Boston gay pride parade saying
that "he would be a better and a stronger advocate than Ted Kennedy."  A Supreme Court most especially containing even one single more conservative justice like Alito, Roberts or Thomas could kill our weak democracy and its weak economy in an instant.  These are serious times needing a serious commitment to our Democratic ideals and to our democracy which has been eroded in so many states.

I am hoping ALL of us will stand with the president, who has taken great risks in his presidency for us even if some of us may have a policy disagreement or two with him.  It does NOT matter now.  It will take us being united from Maine to Hawaii from sea to shining sea to work tirelessly and feverishly for the democratic and Democratic country we know it has the potential to be.
