Don’t think too hard  – I’m still a registered Libertarian.

but [First Lady] Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention – WOW, just WOW!  Definitely, worth a view.  It’s not just the words, her delivery — it’s the emotion in those words.

That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.  And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.

If you can’t handle the Clinton rah-rah hoopla, forward to 11:20 in the video below.  GREAT speech!

 

 

That said, still voting my conscience this election cycle – choosing Johnson/Weld for President.  Both former governors, both qualified to run our country.  If ever a time to buck the trend of voting major party – Democrat/Republican – this is OUR year.

HUGE fan of states’ rights & self rule.  Can’t be convinced that white men 2 time zones away know best how to govern my adopted home, Colorado.  Can’t be convinced that the needs of Colorado are the same as those in New Jersey.  Our country is super diverse, big government STAY OUT & let native thinking take care of local needs.

Ask me what I think about selecting Supreme Court justices?  ARGH!  🙂
