Ok. I'm completely pilfering this from Nicole, but I thought that it was really profound. Let me be clear first...I am not, nor have I ever been, tied down to one political party. I believe that we should go with the best individual for the job. Having said that, I thought that this quote was as true today as it was then.
"In this 20th century, every great step forward has come during Democratic administrations. Every movement backward has come under Republican auspices, and it is the people who have paid dearly...Too much is now at stake--here and throughout the world--to take the wrong path now. There is one way to stop the forces of reaction. Get every vote out on election day, and make it count. You can't afford to waste your votes this year. I'm not asking you just to vote for me. Vote for YOURSELVES!... Vote for the standard of living that you have won under a Democratic administration! Get out there on election day, and vote for your future!"-- Harry Truman, 1948
