a brand new day

a brand new day-

van morrison

When all the dark clouds roll away
And the sun begins to shine
I see my freedom from across the way
And it comes right in on time
Well it shines so bright and it gives so much light
And it comes from the sky above
Makes me feel so free makes me feel like me
And lights my life with love

And it seems like and it feels like
And it seems like yes it feels like
A brand new day, yeah
A brand new day oh

I was lost and double crossed
With my hands behind my back
I was longtime hurt and thrown in the dirt
Shoved out on the railroad track
I've been used, abused and so confused
And I had nowhere to run
But I stood and looked
And my eyes got hooked
On that beautiful morning sun


And the sun shines down all on the ground
Yeah and the grass is oh so green
And my heart is still and I've got the will
And I don't really feel so mean
Here it comes, here it comes
0 here it comes right now
And it comes right in on time
Well it eases me and it pleases me
And it satisfies my mind

The vote is the final word.

If people vote, there will/can be a change.

This election will not solve all our problems.

There is no such thing as a political messiah.

Just a change of attitude is a BIG thing.

He will not be able to do all he has promised.

He has done a lot already by moving out the horrible politics of the neocons. That is a great deed done for the country.

I reject the hate from the left even more than the hate from the right, because the left claims they wouldn't use hate, they aren't that way, but then they do, and are.

The ones who state that only there way is the correct way, they are the ones to be rejected if we are to progress. No matter what political philosophy they speak from.

Obama kept preaching hope. I resisted his oratory as a politicians BS.

I feel a little hope now, but I've been lied to by to many politicians to be a saved cynic.

I will try to rise above that and give him a chance. I shouldn't put my negative reaction to past politicians lies - onto him.

I haven't celebrated a politician winning an election in 40 years, I celebrate this politician winning his election.
