    We are Better than they are!  Our cause is just.  We want to extend freedom, we want to respect people, we want to respect the  right of people to be themselves.

    We don't demand that anybody change themselves to some preconceived notion that we have already formed of what we think that they should be before we accept them.  We accept people for who they are.

    The Right demands that everybody has to be like them.  They don't like people who are proud to be themselves.  They don't like people who are proud of their ethnic heritage, their sexual orientation, their color, their language, their belief.  They only like people who are like themselves.

    The US of A has a symbol.  It is the Statue of Liberty.  It is a welcoming symbol, with a greeting, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free!"  The Right loves the Statue, but they hate the Symbol.  They want to lock the door.  They want to throw away the key.  They don't want the tired, the poor, the huddled masses.  They only want the rich, the privileged, the Christian, white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants, who will gather with them at their Tea Party Rallies.

    This election is important because the USA has to choose between those who want the Statue and those who really love the Symbol.

    Dick Cheney said, "Pi$$ on 'em!" And, Ronald Reagan replied, "That's a Great Idea. Let's Call it 'Trickle Down Economics!"
