On The Record
We are Obama/Biden supporters. The Obama first term has not been everything we wished for. We'd have been happier with less compromise and more fight. We've been frustrated by the willingness to "play nice" with people who never ever intend to return the favor -- like the Tea Party'ers, and John Boehner, and Mitch McChinless. The Affordable Health Care Act wasn't all we hoped it would be, and it is our hope that the law can be strengthened and expanded. We want marriage equality someday. Things have not moved as quickly as we wanted on that front, but there is some promise. We want an end to our military involvement in Afghanistan -- bring our soldiers home. The economy is still not as strong as anyone would wish, but we believe that it is turning around, and we also believe that there might have been much better progress if Republican naysayers (especially Tea Party Demagogues) had not stood in the way of every single initiative designed to move us out of the hole the Bush team dropped us into. We are closer to retirement than we once were, and so what happens to programs like social security and medicare matter to us. More all the time. The truth is we are too old and too poor to vote Republican, or to survive the kinds of draconian, anti-middle class policies that a Mitt Romney presidency would put in place.
Our declared political stand changes nothing. For those who have made up their minds, we are either "singing to the choir" or "talking to the wall." The discourse will be carried out in the media and via the Internet. Neighbors and friends seldom sit down to try to convince each other of these things these days... it is considered "impolite." That is sad. Maybe our political systems would work better if they were more firmly grounded in our own interpersonal dialogs.
