Read Open Letter to President Bush

Not going onto my sidebar, but a good read and something I agree with:

Open Letter to the Democratic Party

EDIT: After reading ALL the comments, I want to add my observations and since I can't get that screen to come up there, I'll add it here:

1) I found it amusing that the writer was told she would never be a Democrat or wasn't a real Republican. She didn't really claim to be either. Which leads to...

2) One person wrote that she couldn't be a moderate because they don't exist in this day and age. They DO exist. They just DON'T have someone they can vote for. This "you're either for me or against me" is stupid.

3) It doesn't matter if the letter is a hoax or not. It obviously summed up the feelings of many and therefore deserves to be considered.

4) I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh or AirAmerica and yet I felt the sting of what she talked about. The part that got me was when even those liberals I respected even gave into the name calling. The conservatives that I respected did not change on the regard. THAT WAS SCARY! Yes, I still got irrational conservative stuff sent to me too, but it was from people I'm used to getting it from and I deleted most of it unread. It was the change I saw in normally responsible people that started to make me wonder what would happen if Kerry had more power.

5) Voting against someone because you couldn't stand the behavior of the other side isn't any better than voting for someone only because they aren't someone.

6) Neither Kerry nor Bush are the epitome of evil. Deal with it.

7) Feeling abused is not something that can just be shrugged off, not matter how logical you are.

8) I am just as guilty as the next person of being nasty on occasion. While it helps in short term endeavors, it doesn't work in long term ones and it never convinces the person I am arguing with that they are wrong.

I think this next link is more me, because it's just practical. Your candidate can't do much if they aren't elected:

That's nice. It didn't post UNTIL I commented on one of my other posts.

It's better than nothing, I suppose.
