Democracy Works

2006_11_08t101307_450x328_us_usa_electioI was beginning to lose faith but yesterdays sweep put my faith back in America.  A strong message was sent.  The majority of Americans didn’t like what they saw and were able to express that by voting for change.  Democracy truly works. 

My hope is that the next two years will not be strife with conflict but a movement towards the center.  My hats off to Chuck Schumer who has really done a terrific job getting the Democratic party on message and unified. 

The most gratifying part of watching the winners last night was seeing our kids involved.  Josh actually got up this morning and got on line to CNN.com to watch the results. They have seen that our Government does work.  It is obviously not always perfect but this is the peoples Government.  The people have spoke and change has taken place and that is a very good thing.
