and that's one of the biggest reasons i was for edwards before he dropped out.
we need single payer UHC NOW. and as an obama supporter, i fully intend to do all i can to help persuade his administration to offer REAL UHC. that is one thing we should all do - pressure him to adopt something much closer to the plan put forth by team edwards.
these young folks, they tend to not be deniers like their older brethren. now yes, there are some deniers in there, but most of them don't give a shit about global warming. these young evangelicals do, hence my "ok" with welcoming them in.
there are many young evangelicals and catholics who actually do believe in stewardship, conservation, preserving the environment, etc.
my thought on this is that these young folks were voting republican because they don't know any better. many of them were brought up in households headed by so-called "Values voters". but these young people are finding that those values votes on issues like god, guns, and gays, are less important than having clean air to breathe and clean water to drink.
if obama can sincerely reach out to them and bring them into our tent, i'm good with it.
