''Presidents and politicians may worry about losing face or losing votes or losing their legacy; it is time to think about young Americans and innocent civilians who are losing their lives," Kerry said, to a thunderous standing ovation."Throughout history, there have been attempts to stifle dissent and enforce conformity in America.
Standing beneath oil portraits of Samuel Adams, George Washington, and John Quincy Adams, Kerry invoked history, from Congress's attempts in 1798 to silence Thomas Jefferson to Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy's crusade against communism in the 1950s.Thank you Senator Kerry! Patriotism demands involvement in our process by every American. Our love of America requires us to keep the Ship of State on course.
''The bedrock of America's greatest advances -- the foundation of what we know today are defining values -- was formed not by cheering things on as they were, but by taking them on and demanding change," Kerry said, again to applause.
To keep America as a beacon of freedom, and not a bastion of torture. To keep America as a peacemaker and not a pre-emptive warmaker. We are the nation that leads the world in scientific exploration and not in suppression of scientific fact by religious dogma. We are a nation that protects the rights and freedom of every American regardless of their religion, national origin, sex, handicap, color, and yes even their sexual orientation. We are a nation that protects the air, water and the land we live on. We believe in the responsibility of educating our children, protecting the rights of women and minorities, working to provide healthcare for the ill, retirement security for our elderly, and hope for every American to live the American Dream.
When there are those who hold office who move our nation in directions other than these, it is incumbent upon every patriotic American to speak up, to protect this Nation for future generations.
John Kerry is up to the task.
As Senator Edward Kennedy, during his Eulogy to his slain brotherquoted Robert Kennedy who often stated
"Some men see things as they are and say why.Why not Senator Kerry in 2008?
I dream things that never were and say why not."
I see the things that could have been and think of the things that could be!
Change is on the Way!
