Guys- I'm tired and fed up. I'm quickly reaching my breaking point with this country and this administration. The politics of fear has ruled for far too long and I think I'm right when I say we're all sick of it. I remember 1992 and the campaigns that ensued. I was still in a college town in Ohio back then, and we had endured far too many years of Reagan and Bush. I and many of friends had been desperate and jobless- even homeless at points, while trying to attend school. I don't know why, but we all sort of accepted it as the way life was. We banded together and helped each other. Then all of a sudden, Bill Clinton came along and with one single quote, and won the election. "It's the economy, stupid." In other words, take care of home first, then the rest of the world. Now, as much as I was not a huge fan of Clinton, it was his attitude that inspired us to vote, get involved and after he was elected have one of the most innovative, creative and prosperous decades in American history. Clinton, for all of his faults, was an extremely positive man. I remember when I first moved to Chicago in the fall of 1992 and he got elected. The feelings were so unbelievably hopeful. In two words the message was, "You Can" or if you prefer "I Will". "I will" was actually printed on the Chicago El trains at the time. Coming from Ohio, where the prevailing attitude was "you can't", it was refreshing. I and many of my friends, thrived here in the 90's and we still (for the most part) do. But I see the damage the Bush administration's policies have done. We've gone backwards with his policies of fear and intimidation. Isn't it time we were inspired again? Isn't it time we had hope again? Isn't it time we stood up and said we want our country and liberties back? Isn't it time we become the innovators we have been in the past again? In short- isn't it time we became the BEST again? And isn't it time we said "WE WILL" again?
