  •  It's all good. I had my moment here, and perhaps (0+ / 0-)

    you'll have one, too, when your desire to hold your principles tight will be overcome by your desire to ensure that the bug-fuck-nuts (hat/tip to Lewis Black) crazies who make up the Republican candidates for the Presidency don't set foot upon the podium on Jan 21, 2013 to take the Oath of Office.

    It was the last straw, for me.

    As much as I've been disheartened by the president's lack of follow-through on issues near and dear to my heart, reality is bitch if you ignore her...

    So I'm not.

    I took a good hard look at those folks on the stage and in the audience at that debate last night and my decision-making ability just kicked in on it's own.

    I heard that still, small voice, and all it was saying was, "They're all crazy. Not just racist and bigoted and mean about every and anything to do with federal dollars for The People. Crazy. Like your uncle that lives in the basement, whom no one but your Nana has seen in six years... crazy, in a way that ensures the total meltdown of civilization is coming and you can see the fires burning in their crazy eyes..."

    I had an epiphany.  I could keep talking about all the shit which I didn't get, like a Public Option and the things Mr. Obama hasn't done that he said he would, like closing Guantanamo. Which gets me, what?

    Ab-so-lutely nothing.

    Or I could take the plunge, and start working towards the better world that OWS says is possible (and I believe them!).

    On that note, I have an appointment on Jan 31st to interview for a campaign manager position in a US House race. So, perhaps I will be able to say, not to awfully long from now, that publicly choosing to support the re-election of President Barack Obama is what found me my first job in almost three years. Because the candidate who might hire me, well, I only found out about him, because of this post I put up last night, and the other diaries I read, because I was trying to keep up with the comments here.

    Destiny, or something like it...
