Did you Rock the Vote yesterday? Whether you are a democrat or a republican I hope you got out there and voted. It’s the only way to make our voices heard.
I loved this portion of Obama’s speech, “America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.”
I also loved what Romney said in his speech, “The nation, as you know, is at a critical point. At a time like this, we can’t risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people’s work…
And we look to Democrats and Republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics. I believe in America. I believe in the people of America.”
Remember politics is like a good marriage. For a marriage to work and be harmonious sometimes you must agree to disagree. Marriage as defined by Wikipedia: Marriage is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that creates kinship. I like that definition– we must now work to create kinship in the country.
