Cheryl, please....Easy on the poor woman. It is a free Country, and everyone has a right to her personal point of view. We need to be able to disagree and let others have their say.
I personally feel a great deal of sympathy for the idealistic young, as I was once one myself, in my own rather conservative, way. For example, I was against the Vietnam War but joined the Navy to be a doctor and help the guys who were defending our Country. If you can't figure that paradox out, OK, some of my treachers couldn't either.
Anyway, I think it was Winston Churchill who said,
"A conservative at 20 has no heart,
But a liberal at 40 has no brain."
I think that's about right, and I have great compassion for my young colleagues with plenty of heart. Many of them will be compassionate conservatives when they have their own children. I'm less sanguine with people my own age who haven't figured it out yet. :-)
.....if it had been an elder, or someone of the male persuasion, who had started this thread on ways to get Obama re-elected, I wonder if you'd have been as..... how should I say.......friendly, and supportive. Makes you wanna go hmmmmmmmmmm....
