KOS Convention in Lost Wages

I was watching the Kos Convention out in Lost Wages today on CSPAN and it was very interesting to me as a semi liberal blogger. They were discussing how much of an influence we as bloggers can have on politics in today’s society and how much more we need to do to progress our general message. Basically, we are about the truth in politics but there are extremist out there that will write anything to keep their own name in the head lines…COUGH COUGH ANN COULTER IS SATAN COUGH… Sorry about that. I had a tickle in my throat.

For me and where I stand politically I’m sort of torn apart and in the middle of both sides but I definitely lean left. I can’t stand President Bush but I’m not sure if Al Gore would have done a better job post nine eleven. John Kerry I like but don’t like. I’m a flip flopper on Kerry but I did donate to his campaign because I do not respect how George Bush has dealt with the office of President of our country.

I’ve seen polls out there on which party people trust more to handle our nations affairs and the Democrats have a slim margin on the plus side. I’m good with that poll. I think the Democrats would rather use diplomacy over threats of military force with any nation that we disagree with. The Republicans seem to prefer bullying tactics first and then the oh shit approach later.

If you look at the big picture of our nation and its great history every few years the powers at the top have changed. Sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. Change is inevitable and the time for change is coming once more. The beauty of our amazing system of government is that if we don’t like the looks of our government then we can vote and change it. I just love the concept of it. Vote and change it. Our founding fathers may have had their own personal demons or political issues but they blessed us with a government with a foundation that can change.

So I’m going to keep on blogging on what I think and if you take it as left then you can take it as that. If I lean to far over the line and sound like a righty then I am hoping that my friends reading this blog pull me back from the wrong path.
