  •  no such thing as "only" (none)
    A middle-aged housewife!  There are millions of us out there and we definitely count!  I've been lurking here for ages - I've only had a user ID for a couple of months.  For those of us who are living life on a day-to-day basis and trying to make a difference, it's a relief to know that there are others out there who are in the same mind-set/philosophy/political boat.  

    I'm in Maine - 46 - working mom with 4 kids and a working husband.  I'm Asian, husband is Caucasian; right off the bat we're in the "other
     catagory for most things here in Maine.  Kids, 2 girls & 2 boys, are mid-high school to college aged.  We're the standard middle-class family who is involved in community, scouting, and trying to leave our part of the world better than we left it.  After the last national election, I was ready to pack the family up and move to Canada or Australia.  DKos has been integral to getting beyond the 'flight' and into the 'fight' mentality for me - I don't want to desert this country just because some idiots have the upper hand for the moment.  

    I found that this site is one of the best in terms of genuine people who are as passionate and dedicated to the betterment of this country - and to keeping this country as it was intended by the Founders.  It's a great bunch, and I'm so glad I took the plunge and jumped in the pool!  The education from all those who share here is top notch and free!  Thanks to all who have welcomed us newbies so graciously.
