I don’t want to radically change the site. I just want us to be realistic and still optimistic. This morning I posted an exit poll that said Obama supporters… well, never mind what it said. I posted a poll and Jim said that he didn’t really want to hear anymore about how dumb Obama supporters are. I don’t either. It is depressing.
I want everyone to post the things they want to post. I have never limited the cob-loggers and I am not now. It is just that I am tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney and all of the rest of whatever band of clowns are in charge of what branch of whatever. I really am.
I only ask that we try to make this site a place, not of despair and mourning, but of steady optimism. We are not subjects of the state and we are sure as hell not victims. We are individual entities, endowed by our Creator with immortal souls who live on the ground on which we were born. We were born free and no election changes that.
So go ahead and post what you want to post but try to remember that we are the heroes of our own life stories and that we will decide how to live our lives. There is nothing they are going to throw at us that we can’t overcome. We won’t be victims. We won’t be passive. We were not defeated. We are free.
That is Plan B. We will abide.
Men who are sincere in defending their freedom, will always feel concern at every circumstance which seems to make against them; it is the natural and honest consequence of all affectionate attachments, and the want of it is a vice. But the dejection lasts only for a moment; they soon rise out of it with additional vigor; the glow of hope, courage and fortitude, will, in a little time, supply the place of every inferior passion, and kindle the whole heart into heroism. ~Thomas Paine, The American Crisis: PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12, 1777
