A new beginning

If we are fortunate, election night will signal a rebirth for us with endless possibilities. If this occurs, and Barack Obama becomes the next President of the United States, then what has gone before will be but a bad memory. In anticipation of a November 4 victory for the Democrats, I have compiled a list of "out with the old, and in with the new" items:


2. Uzis
3. Unqualified hatred of foreigners, gays, blacks,immigrants and intellectuals
4. Rush Limbaugh
5. Fox News
6. Unregulated greed
7. Torture
8. Rampant wiretapping
9. War for oil
10.The Bush doctrine
11. Diminished global respect
12. Vice President Cheney
13. Black and white answers to complex problems
14, Mean spiritedness
15. Voter suppression
16. Fiscal irresponsibility
17. Sarah Palin
18. President Bush
19. Insanity


1. All children who were left behind
2. Diplomacy
3. Intellectual curiosity
4. 47 Million people who were previously uninsured
5. Clean air
6. Justices who support Roe v Wade
7. Books
8. Fundamentally sound economic policies
9.The Constitution of the United States
10. Soldiers home, safe and sound, from Iraq
11. Al Gore
12. Equal protection for all
13. The middle class
14. Vice President Biden
15. Gays, foreigners, blacks, immigrants and intellectuals
16. Hope
17. Respect from around the globe
