It’s Only Politics…

Sunday, November 2, 2008


I was reminded twice today that, despite my political principles, life does indeed go on regardless of what happens Tuesday. Life is bigger–and far more important–than any candidate.

I realized that is how I’ve been feeling for several years now, and quickly incorporated that line into my twitter profile. As the years have gone on since the Contract […]
