My name is Cara. I am a mom of four in sunny New Mexico. Everyone has told me that I am so opinionated about politics that I need to start my own blog, and we all know there is a terrible blog shortage, but what the hell...lets give it a shot.
I am a life long, dyed in the wool, leftie liberal. I make no apologies or pretenses. Feel free to comment at will, and unlike Bush, you can disagree with me and not be my enemy. I believe that freedom of discourse is what made this country great, and our distaste for it is weakening our nation. We have allowed a second-rate bully to run the show, and are too afraid (perhaps rightfully so) to make waves. It is imperative that we make changes in the congress and in two years the presidency, if we are to save our democracy and begin to right some of the wrongs of the past 6 years. I fear that the set-backs will take generations to fix, but I am beginning by telling my own children the truth, and by getting involved. Welcome to my blog, feel free to post, or to email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
