  •  Great diary - thank you... (0+ / 0-)

    You expressed what I've been trying to get across to friends and family who were torn between Hillary and Barack (since they're both such excellent candidates) so eloquently....thank you.
    I've been so frustrated and angry with the Bush administration and what it (and other Republican administrations like Reagan and Bush Sr.) has done to this country, and knew in my gut that the only way to turn things around so that families in America again could have a chance at a decent life was for millions of Americans to finally come together with common goals and speak up -- it was time for a revolution of sorts. But I didn't see how that would come about....then Barack came along,and it became apparent that he knew this as well and could help inspire and bring Americans together to help him enact real change -- FOR us, BY us. He'll just be the leader to guide us there.  
    There are more of us than there are of them (lobbyists, corporate elitists) -- they know it and are scared of it, and we just have to remind Americans so they know it too and act on that knowledge. The ones in power want us to remain unhopeful, uneducated, unempowered -- because it keeps us quiet so they can keep emassing their money and power over the government to suit their own narrow interests unimpeded. We are the only ones that can, in masse, take our government back. Let's get to work...
