Democracy for Texas Poll Results

Democracy for Texas conducted a presidential candidate poll of its members, and the results are in: Obama wins, with Edwards close behind.

Some of the survey participants left their reasons for selecting Obama:

“Obama is the one who puts principle above winning, whose style is that of a statesman and who can unite the country and rise above partisanship.”

“Obama has the unique experience, vision, and character to unite our divided nation, restore America’s standing in the world, and inspire a new generation of community activists, organizers, and leaders.”

“I find the same kind of optimism in Barack that I did many years ago in our beloved John Kennedy. We need a change and to greet the future with energy and hope.”

“Obama inspires me and gives me hope that the status quo in D.C. will really change.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Thanks to DFT for conducting this poll!

A Great Letter to the Editor

There’s a great letter to the editor in Saturday’s A-J (scroll down at the link to read) that I want to share with y’all. It’s called “Lubbock liberals believe in a ‘we’ not ‘me’ society.” Here’s an excerpt:

Are you starting to realize that a liberal may actually be someone who loves democracy and the principles on which our country was founded? If so, there is one thing you might want to consider before embracing this ideology - being a liberal in Lubbock is not for sissies, but then neither is getting old or being poor.

Right on, Mary Ruth. Right on.

This begs the question: how often do you write letters to the editor?
