Reasons to Be Optimistic

1. Bush mush clean up his own mess in Iraq. Nobody will be able to say, "Well, we WERE on the right track until we voted in Kerry!"

2. The movement on the left is more organized, structured and fired up than ever before. I intend to take part.

3. If I truly am wrong about Bush, then the country will be ok.

I don't want anything bad to happen to our country. I honestly don't. I truly wish that in the next four years that Bush will become a great president, bring the country together and PROVE ME WRONG. The future of my country is more important than me being right or getting to say, "I told you so." A lot of people are saying that we are going to be sorry and that people are going to suffer because of this decision, and though I tend to agree with them I really hope that this turns out not to be true.

That being said, I don't really buy the olive branch extended to Kerry supporters in Bush's acceptance speech yesterday. How can you say you will reach out to unite everybody when you based your entire campaign on being as divisive as possible? I want to feel optimistic again but I know that the once Supreme Court nominees start popping up and Roe v. Wade begins working it's way through the courts it's all going to go out the window. I can't stand for that.

I really need to find a way to get involved more than just reading and ranting. However, I also need to take a break from all this and clear my mind. I need to focus on other things for a while. My baby's first birthday is coming up and the holidays are coming along with (maybe, hopefully?) another trip out to Vegas so let's find reasons to smile! Don't give up everyone!
