Not 2008...

Wow, what a complete turnaround from 2008. Back then, the Phillies had won the World Series and we had just elected Obama.  I'm feeling decidedly down after the Phils self-destructed and the GOP prevailed during the election, but I have to keep bringing myself back from the cliff.  I know the Phils will be ok, but the country.,.. well, I'm worried, although I understand that the most extreme dissatisfied voters came out to vote, and that may not be the case two years from now.  I also will never stop believing that the anger of these extreme voters is partially rooted in having a black man as president. 

I am very liberal, but I understand that people may not have the same views as me (although they're wrong :)).  But what gets me is how the far right totally clouds the real issues (unemployment, the disproportionate wealth distribution in our country, global warming, etc.) with issues that mean absolutely nothing to the quality of life of its citizens (gay marriage, etc.).  They use these moral issues to pull in the most extreme voters to vote for them, and then enact nice laws and tax breaks that keep the wealthiest empowered.
