Man has a cerebral advantage from all other species. It is obviously what keeps us at the top of the food and evolutionary chain. The polar bear can survive in weather that would kill us in one minute. All the other species can do things that would kill a man instantly. BUT man has this brain; this incredible brain that thinks the most complex thoughts, creates the most complex engineering feats, sews the most beautiful clothes and makes coats to keep him warm. That IS our advantage. The OTHER advantage is that man also has and needs the help of the group to survive. If I have a medical issue I NEED someone else to help -- a doctor who has tremendous expertise I do not have.
of, in my opinion, the most IMPORTANT characteristics of the human
species (some have it more than others) is our ability for empathy; our ability
to walk in the other guy's shoes, to cry, to help others EVEN WHEN we
put our own life at risk. Few other species do this OR if they do it is
Therefore, it saves the group when we take care
of each other; when we empathize and when we avoid the utter
devastation of war. If we think three days of interrupted electricity
is not acceptable then what would we god forbid do if electricity were
the exception and not the rule. We live in a delicate balance where war
truthfully helps no one. War kills and if we are not careful it will
kill man and his complex society once and for all leaving the earth to
regroup, heal itself and start over!

following story linked below in the Washington Post about Romney's
younger years is TROUBLING to say the least. He was in modern parlance a
Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents link here
yet another reason to vote for the president.
As I sit here typing I heard the skewed media focus on those who may not vote now for the president because of the gay marriage support. They are not concentrating on those in his base and others who may have not voted before because of one thing or another but are now motivated TO vote for him now. At least I HOPE it has. A civil right should NOT be put to a vote. How many would have voted against black people or even interracial marriage in 1964 if their civil rights were put up to a vote?
If any of you, any one of you had any reservations whatsoever you need to bag them, say a profound thank you to the president who is now risking his presidency for those of us to whom marriage issue means a lot. That is HEROIC! In view of that I don't care how you do it but you MUST MUST help get out the vote for the president.
You must convince all those who had any doubt that this president is for us. He has, in my opinion, done the best he could in other areas as well. The gay marriage issue elevates him to incredible heights and WE MUST support him. Moreover, the 99% should not have any doubts whatsoever that Romney would be deadly for them and for the country as well. Gay issue aside it is economic stability which is the driver of elections and on that issue Obama too has had to work with poisonous opposition. It is amazing the economy has done as well as it has given the wreckage the Republicans left him with.
PLEASE GET THE VOTE OUT FOR THE PRESIDENT. LOOK TO WHAT HE HAS DONE WHICH IS LEGION FOR THE PEOPLE AND KNOW YOU ARE DOING A GREAT THING FOR OUR COUNTRY. HE WILL IF ELECTED AGAIN AND IF THE CONGRESS TURNS BLUE GO DOWN AMONG THE GREATS. I AM CONVINCED OF THAT. PLEASE, OF COURSE, VOTE FOR HIM AND CONVINCE AS MANY OTHERS AS YOU CAN TO VOTE FOR HIM TOO!
