“let’s take back our country”

Tune out the robo-calls and all the other bullshit for a moment. Take a deep breath. Verify your polling place. Print out some flyers for your neighborhood. Pack a sandwich and a bottle of water. (If you’re in an economically depressed area there will likely be long lines.) Call your fellow Democrats and encourage them to join you. Pick them up if you have to. Find the polling place and get in line. Stay positive, but be vigilant. Be optimistic in spite of the threats that exist. And vote to take our country back.

Good luck.

See you on the other side.

    I think the “lower gas prices” bit is bullshit, but otherwise this agenda as put forward by DNC Chair Howard Dean sounds pretty good to me.

    ….But we Democrats have our own plans, which couldn’t be clearer:

    Honest Leadership & Open Government
    We will end the Republican culture of corruption and restore a government as good as the people it serves.

    Real Security & A New Direction in Iraq
    We will protect Americans at home and lead the world by telling the truth to our troops, our citizens and our allies, and we will heed the advice of our commanders on the ground and force a change in the failed Republican strategy in Iraq.

    Energy Independence & Lower Gas Prices
    We will create a cleaner, greener and stronger America by reducing our dependence on foreign oil, eliminating billions in subsidies for oil and gas companies and developing energy alternatives.

    More Jobs, Better Pay & College Access for Everyone
    We will create jobs that stay in America, raise the minimum wage, and open the doors to college for every American.

    Healthcare that Works for Everyone & Life-Saving Cures
    We will join 36 other industrialized nations in making sure everyone has access to affordable health care, and we will make decisions to invest in stem cell and other medical research based on science, not politics.

    Retirement Security
    We will ensure that a retirement with dignity is the right and expectation of every single American, starting with protecting workers’ pensions expanding saving incentives and preventing the privatization of social security.

    No real results yet, but I’m here at the Corner watching CNN. The mood is cautiously optimistic. (Our unicorns are tied up outside.)
