I am feeling great that that I am part of Team Obama and that my guy won but I am not resting on my laurels. He won't start his second term until January and we got a big economic problem facing our nation that must be solved before this years is up. We still got a recalcitrant Republican lead Congress that wants to shred The Social Security program and gut Medicare so we still have a fight on our hands.
There is an economic tsunami over our heads because we have been putting band aids on the economy that last for a few months then we are back where we started trying to bargain with fiscal conservatives when the only cure is progressive thinking.
The state where I live, Minnesota, is more progressive then the national government. Us Democrats recaptured both The House and The Senate in this Election and we have a Democratic Governor, Mark Dayton. So there is more hope here then in other states. Our biggest flaw was that Michelle Bachmann won again and so did Eric Paulson and Jim Kline all Republicans. But Amy Klobuchar and Keith Ellison retained their seats!
A breath of fresh air is returning to the Congress next year in the return of Florida Congressman Alan Grayson who got back the seat he lost in 2010. He speaks his mind and let the chips fall where they may. He is what a Democrat should be all about.
As citizens we still can't sit back on our duff and snooze! We have to keep our elected officials on their toes and do OUR BIDDING'S! Remember public officials work for US! They are there to to do what's best for the USA so we have to put our progressive hats on and make them do it.
Progress is going forward to better days and Regress is going back to a time before some of the rights we take for granted didn't exist and only the wealthy were experiencing "The Good Old Days". So Let the Progress Begin!
