Time to Stand Behind Obama

Well. The Democratic National Convention is currently under way, which means It's On. The quadrennial American revolution is in full force, and it's time to stand behind our Guy. There are a whole lot of people out there who, for whatever reason, want our country to look like 19th century London with laissez faire capitalism and the superstition of theocracy in full force, with money pooling up in a few families, building the dynasties America wanted to banish from rule. These folks have the notion that the free market is a panacea, the cure all for every problem, when it's more of an organic system leading to efficiency rather than a specific preferred goal. These folks are going to throw their full, short sighted support behind John McCain. Until the dust settles, those of us who want Barack Obama to be our president need to push back in the opposite direction and throw our full support behind him.

For those Greens out there who think the Democratic party doesn't uphold your values, and think both parties are the same, it's your own damn fault. You've abandoned us. You've withdrawn your imput rather than help us to guide the Democrat's direction. So screw you few assholes if you're not going to come along.

Most of us are in it to change things, and form a party and country to our will. From now until after the election, Obama can do no wrong for those of us who want him to win.
