  •  welcome to the Party! (9+ / 0-)

    remember what Will Rogers said about it:  "I belong to no organized party...I am a Democrat"

    remember this is the Party that brought us Roosevelt and Truman among many other fine presidents...

    We are the Party that still respects and honors the best of the other party: Lincoln,  T. Roosevelt, Eisenhower

    Enjoy that first vote ...mine was a few after my 21st birthday (back then 21 was the voting age) ..I voted to increase the pay for the police and fire fighters.
    In my first national election, I stood in line 7 hours to vote for Hubert Humphrey ... I am proud I voted for Carter ..and I am so happy I was able to vote for Obama ...as one who witnessed the civil rights movement ..as one who grew up knowing what segregation did to people .. I was so thrilled to vote for him ...

    and I hope you too will someday get to make  a world changing  vote like that ...to see something so momentous ...I hope you get to make several!

    Welcome to the Party!

    Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!

      ....still LOVE Carter.

      It's interesting because my mother (who was a teen in the 60s) considered herself to be a Republican during her youth - she loved Barry Goldwater. But by the time Nixon re-emerged (along with the Southern Strategy) she jumped ship and never looked back.
