Discouraged this morning, and I need some DU reassurance!
Please, please, please - keep telling me that Obama IS going to win in November.
The country cannot survive a Romney presidency. I can't bear the thought of the idiots and the hicks who surround me in my every day life who will be gloating if Romney wins. The ones who throw hate around like it's the new normal. The ones who cannot tolerate the thought of anyone or anything being evenly remotely different than the stereotypes of themselves. The ones who cannot understand simple math - like adding up what they make versus what the corporate CEO's make, and seeing a difference. They won't dare allow the idea that individuals actually might have worth!
I suffered through George Bush, first as governor, and then as President. I've suffered enough for their ignorance!
I promise to renew my own vigor, and to renew my actions to do whatever I can to get Obama re-elected. But I am surrounded by people who would love to see him lose. After last night's recall, I'm a little discouraged. There ARE positive things to look to - like the Wisconsin Senate. But the discouragement is still there for me.
Fellow DU'ers, I kindly ask that you keep me reminded of the fact that there are still people who, like you and me, genuinely want peace, calm, equality and prosperity for EVERYONE!
