Embrace your idealism

"The others felt more strongly that Kerry would do a better job on healthcare, workers' rights, social security, and judicial appointments. As parents, they worried about their children being sent to war against their will or joining the military because it was the only way to pay for college. Overall, their perspective was based on practical issues in their lives, not grandiose ideals about social change. They did not expect Kerry to change two party system, or end US support of right-wing dictators, or make "free" trade fair. I felt young and idealistic."

Kerry would have sent their kids to war and would have done a horrible job on "healthcare, workers' rights, social security, and judicial appointments. And internationally, those who support rightwing dictators abroad are the same beating us up at home. Embrace your own idealism, do not deny what you already know.
