Sound Destruction

I thought I'd also add here the following comment that I left on MoxieGrrrl in response to the news that the House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to reverse Republican-written rules that led Democrats to shut down the ethics committee. Republicans backed the resolution grudgingly. The Republicans, accused of writing the rules to protect Majority Leader Tom DeLay from investigations, heeded Speaker Dennis Hastert's call for a retreat in order to end the deadlock on the evenly divided panel. The vote was 406-20.

Our country will never better itself when we as a nation continue to foster blind, up & down the aisle partisanship, following the direction of our government's leadership..."You're either with us, or you're against us.".

It's essential for our nation to prioritize moving beyond that proverbial line in the sand. Sure it's easy and often instinctive to follow the majority and line yourself up with the popular bully on the playground because he and his crew have the power to manipulate people by using fear and imposing tactics to achieve his agenda. But, it's truly a show of strength and character to recognize that popularity isn't everything and that powerful bullies don't necessarily have their blind followers' best interests in mind.

As the blind majority slowly open their eyes and start to see the reality that surrounds them, the volume of the majority will fluctuate until those who can only follow blindly will find themselves suddenly in the minority.

That said, I'd like to think that a few eyes were opened with today's telling vote.

Hmm, maybe the repugs are realizing it may be a bad idea, in the long term, to support absolute evil.
