small people are afraid. that's why we are seeing the small people cling to palin for all they are worth- they want to be a part of something that is bigger than they are. unfortunately, for them, they picked the wrong camp. america is changing because change is an inevitable part of life. the planet is changing and the world's people are changing- and america has changed too- but into something almost unrecognizable. we cannot cling desperately to the past- no matter how much we want to. we cannot remain young forever and we cannot stop time's relentless march forward. what we can do is preserve the good ties to the past- traditions and stories and history. what we don't need to preserve (but should always remember) are the ugly bits of division and hatred that are being held up by the fearmongerers and the bigots in this country. bigots such as sarah palin, and michelle bachman. let's call these people what they are- and tell them in no uncertain terms that real americans, 'pro-americans' aren't bigots or racists or fearmongers. they are men and women of all colors, religions, and ideologies putting country first in reality- not simply in rhetoric.
