COUNTDOWN TO A NEW SUNRISE

This is it, my Proud Liberal siblings! We don’t need to re-hash Rev. Haggart, Jack Abramhoff, Limbaugh attacking Parkies, Bush being dangerously insane, Halliburton and their corporate tentacles stealing billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars, or any of the thousands of GOP-Clonebot-Apocalyptophiliacs’ lies and distortions– at least, not until the next post. Tomorrow, do your duty as an American and VOTE. If you live in Oregon (as I am lucky enough to do), you can vote by mail–but if you haven’t sent it in yet, DON’T MAIL IT–you MUST drop it off at any one of thousands of drop-boxes around the state. The easiest for most people would be to drop it at the counter of your local library. For complete ballot drop-box listings in Oregon, GO HERE.Since you’re reading this on a site called ProudLiberal.org, we likely hold similar opinions on a variety of topics. Remember– here’s the actual definition of ‘Liberal’, courtesy of Merriam-Webster.com:

a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties.

We cannot continue to live under the current, cynical Kleptocracy. We cannot allow our country to be driven fully into bankruptcy– financial, spiritual, and moral. We cannot continue to allow the handmaidens to the richest 1% to dictate global policy, literally rape and enslave the poor, ignore science, export our jobs, deny us even the most basic, affordable healthcare, and trample our Constitutional rights.

The Democratic party is truly our only hope in this election. As a Christian and Left-Wing Progressive, I want to reiterate that that the Democratic party is the ONLY major U.S. political group that not only accepts, but welcomes with open arms EVERYONE who wishes to improve the lives of every American. We as Democrats are people of many faiths and belief systems: Atheists, Agnostics, Rational Humanists, Christians, Baha’is, Muslims, Wiccans, Zoroastrians. We are married Straight people, we are Gay, we are Transgendered, we are Celibates, we are Americans.

We will not be silenced, and we will no longer allow a tiny and dangerously hateful minority to further tarnish the promise that is America.

It’s going to be a beautiful sunrise.

36-yo, married a year(though we've been together for 14 YEARS NOW!!). Used to be a record producer and glass-blower, but Parkinson's Disease has put an end to those pursuits. Ah, but since diagnosis in 2004, I've been painting a great deal. Acrylics, kinda post-impressionist. I plan to post examples soon. I am a member of the Democratic party in America, Sinn Féin in Ireland. I have gained great peace through studying the words of Jesus Christ and the Buddha. The 'religious right' is neither-- Fundamentalism in any religious framework ignores the reality of abstract reasoning and the God-given RIGHT of free thought--INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO BE AN ATHEIST OR AGNOSTIC. If fundamentalist Christians were actually serious about following Christ's teachings, Bush et al would be in prison for life without parole-- because as a Christian I do not support the death penalty.
