Wow — both the House and the Senate in Democratic control! We underestimated ourselves. This is an incredible turn of events for our nation.
The following was posted by “Witch” on Democraticunderground.com, and I thought it was worth sharing (thanks to Ninjanurse for sending me a copy):
Dear dismayed conservatives:
I hereby make these promises to you.
We will protect your lives and livelihoods.
We will listen to and respect your beliefs.
We will never try to force you to change your religion, sexual orientation, or first language.
We will do our best to reduce the number of abortions in our country.
We will have no tolerance for corruption and cronyism, even in our own party.
ESPECIALLY in our own party.
We will never tell you that you are unpatriotic.
We will never tell you that your opinion doesn’t count.
We will never waste your lives for power.
We will hold our leaders to a high ethical standard and when they succumb to lust for power, WE WILL HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.
If we forget this, please, please, please, remind us.
We need you to do this. You are America as much as we are.
