"Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility - a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.

This is the price and the promise of citizenship."

Because it needed to be said. And 82-year-old Margaret says it damn well.

Just who is this "Joe Sixpack" character, anyway?

A brief political moment from me. Now that Mr. Obama has an official running mate, we're good to go. :c)

Damn, there's a lot of famous faces here.

I haven't talked about this in my LJ at all, but since the mainstream news has finally picked up the story, I guess it's okay to share with ya'll. Now you know the real reason I've been so quiet here lately. ;c)

So in this morning's mail, I received my voter ballot for the California Primary. Which took place February 5th.

Excellent choices all, but of course my personal favorite:

Finally, we have a pair of candidates that promises to “magically” restore our faith in democracy, Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. Running on the Hogwarts ticket with their catchy campaign slogan, “Accio New President,” this pair of mysteriously naturalized former British citizens have captured the hearts of millions, thanks to a glowing multivolume biography by J.K Rowling. While many cite Barack Obama as the premiere orator in the current field, not even he can match Dumbledore’s fatherly demeanor and inspiring rhetoric about “confronting evil.” Snape often fades into the background during campaign events, but insiders warn not to underestimate his counter-intelligence credentials. Still, there are questions about this pair, with Rowling divulging details of Dumbledore’s past that may irk social conservatives, and Snape’s associations with dark arts-dealers.

I've decided to link to some fabulous reasons to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton, written by Robin Morgan, and ganked from [livejournal.com profile] fabularasa:


And I will also be posting things that have nothing to do with the election, in case you're worried. ;c) Why is it that all of my really cool journaling ideas occur to me around 3 a.m.? By the time I'm fully awake in the morning, I've lost 90% of them.

Because this is the best summation I've read so far about Barrack Obama:


I would like to take this moment to encourage all of you who have a primary today to get out there and vote, no matter who you support. Make your voice heard, let those who would run our country know what matters to YOU.
