I'm over at Roundtree7 this morning, getting a little mouthy about politics. The sad truth is that I try to avoid confrontation so completely that I won't even say some things on my own blog because I don't want anybody in real life to bring up certain topics next week, or even next month. Or maybe it's because my personal feelings on this topic are so strong that I'm afraid I'll come off as attacking or judgmental. I do wish that some of my friends in real life had come to the same conclusion - but what's important right now isn't really who is voting for whom nearly so much as the love we share for each other and for the larger community. In the end, we're all facing the same challenges no matter how things turn out on Tuesday.

Update: I've been told that John Cusack tweeted my post at Roundtree7 sometime Sunday and it got 600 hits that afternoon. Pretty amazing.
I still feel a little lonely and a lot outnumbered, but I continue to believe that if this country is ever going to break the corporate stranglehold on the government - especially when it comes to fossil fuels and environmental preservation and protection, then some of us are going to have to start voting Green. It won't change anything tomorrow, but voting Green is kind of like taking the Road Less Traveled. It leads to a better place, even if it does take another 100 years to get there.
