bravo, while your recharging your batteries and learning that liberals of all stripes are generally wishywashy people due to their percieved intelligence of themselves and folks they gravitate towards, you might expand your horizons by getting to know some folks of the opposite spectrum. we aren’t as vocal and we do not wear you out with constant blather of how great we are with our good intentions . you might be surprised , what do you have to lose, you already know what the would be your saviours deliver. you might be very surprised how decent and down to earth folks of a more moderate and conservative bent are. you already know you have plenty of heart, perhaps you simply have put it with the wrong crowd. your story was a nice read. good luck no matter where you land this spring.
