AGREE OR DISAGREE THIS LAND IS OURS

It was a historical night filled with emotion and elation.

I felt the significance as Barack Obama took center stage to celebrate the forthcoming nomination as the Democrat's Presidential candidate. Excitement would have been felt if Hillary had been the one up there.

Why, you ask, would I generate such feelings in this display when I do not favor either candidate for President of the United States?

Because this great country of ours allows me freedom of equality in disagreement.

  2. equality in disagreement! Wow, as a republican who ocassionally panders to liberalism, I have a hard time pandering to those two (Obama and Clinton). I am a little scared that McCain might not have the sparkle and sheen needed to go up against Obama but one can only hope.

  3. Yes, but as a female with some African heritage, I could not help but get caught up in this direction for our country.

    I love your description, "as a republican who occasionally panders to liberalism". Exactly!

  4. I'd say I'm a liberal who sometimes espouses the fringes of conservatism (but only the fringes...LOL)

    I'd have no excitement for Hillary, but I do for Obama.
