"I told the Congress, 'Thanks, but no thanks,' on that Bridge to Nowhere." –Sarah Palin, who was for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against it
Sarah Palin is viewed by some as the most polarizing figure in American Politics (not including our current, most wonderful President). Obviously, the pick of Palin was to solidify the Ultra-Conservative Base (less than 10%) of the Republican Party; thinking that McCain's record of "cross the aisle" politics and Senator Lieberman's insane adoration of the Arizona Senator. However, after two weeks, it all began to fade, even before... Read More
Thank You, President Elect Obama
Dear Mr. Obama, I am writing to show gratitude for your decision to choose to be the leader of a nation that has been led to believe and behave in the worst of ways. A country that once claimed itself a leader in democracy, justice, and liberty for all, and has been led to its own demise of these principles, and worse, led into the demise of integrity, honesty, and consideration for our planet, community, neighbors, and families, and ourselves. This country almost arrived at it’s own chaotic end. The degredation of a once united people has fallen... Read More
As I listened last night to the speech of our newly elect-President Obama, I focused in on these words in the title of my article that I'm pretty sure were spoken. This primarily in part because I am a Buddhist. My practice is of the Nichren Dashonion sect, in which we look within ourself to make ourselves a better person to contribute to world peace. Last night I believe that Americans were not only looking for change, but looked inside themselves. President-Elect Obama, I believe has been doing that for years, no matter what faith he practices.
I am only 34 years old and a product... Read More
Yes, Yes, I understand "Change" is cliche. Yes, Yes, I realize that many conservatives believe that Obama and the democratic party had misled the population into "buying" their message.
Regardless, We NEED to stand together. NO ONE is pushing out conservatives; and yes, the next four years will be much different from the last four; but if bickering continues the only outcomes will not be pretty.
Do not be bitter because of a loss, but be happy that it came so close. America is divided, and if conservatives think that undermining a new goverment will mend their hurt: They will... Read More
Please express criticism in courteous, temperate, and constructive terms.
Does that sentence look familiar? It should, for anyone who has ever left feedback on this site. I am hoping now that the election is over, we can go back to following that disclaimer. Or in the case of some writers, we can start following it.
Much political discussion has occurred on Broowaha in the past few months. I even involved myself in the discourse for a bit, which is quite unlike me. The trouble with discussing politics in a public forum is that far too frequently the discourse degenerates into... Read More
Stumbling out of bed with one eye open at 5:30 am in the morning to cast my vote at the polling station is not convenient, but I still smirk at my hope for a new President and a brighter future for America. My motivation to cast my vote is not only because I am a minority who knows voting is a privilege but that Election Day always has me feeling a bit sentimental about an American tradition some people take for granted. Several people over the past few months have complained to me about the state of our countries affairs but they have reluctantly decided not to vote in this presidential election.... Read More
I normally support this type of civic engagement - but not when the honking is coming from half a block away from where I sleep/eat and work.
But - for election day, I can take it.
