    I'm still pretty green around here, and have enjoyed reading the varied opinions, comments, attacks and the like from all of you who post here. As far as starting my own threads go, I usually shy away and leave it for the more bold personalities that grace this board.

    But .... today I would like to share with all of you, just how proud I am to be an American living in these times. I've been paying attention to politics for only a few short years. Through reading, watching the news and being a member of a political message boards such as this, I have learned a tremendous amount.

    Well, being a New Englander and a former resident of Massachusetts, yesterday's election results left me with a smile and good feeling that I've kept going all day! I'm excited to be part of this process and to watch how politics in America is playing out. I am a Tea Party member. I was in D.C. for the Taxypayer March last September. I am a registered Republican, but as far as I'm concerned, like many of you, the corruption and dishonesty is on BOTH sides. Perhaps I should re-register as an Independent. Regardless, I'm happy to be part of this.

    Thank you for your time.

    Okay, now do I have the guts to actually post this? lol

    No matter which side you are on, yesterdays election shows that our political system does work.

    Thanks for your post and thanks for sharing your candid thoughts.

    Two quick questions.

    Were you NOT proud to be an American last week?

    Do you think the election of Scott Brown is going to result in any vast changes?

    As I see it, you've got to work with what you've got.

    But the key word is "WORK"...rather than just argue and stagnate for eternity.

    IMO, the GOP knows it can't take America forward. After all, they had all of the political marbles for almost 8 years and look what they did. They don't seem to understand that unbridled capitalism is not good for the nation or its people. That's why Teddy Roosevelt put a saddle and bridle on it at the beginning of the last century.
