Red, White, and Blue

Whew! What a relief! It looks like the GOP has a good potential candidate in Jon Huntsman, who's taking the high road. Fio supports Obama for four more years, but, from what she's seen of Huntsman, he's a good man. We'll see what happens come election time.

And elections are what the United States is all about. Sure, we won the right to have elections through a bloody rebellion, but it was what we did afterwards that was more important. Rebellions are easy and can happen at the drop of a hat. Libya revolted forty-some years ago and set up a multi-layered democracy, but political parties were banned, and presidents had no term limits. We all know what happened next: Gaddafi.

So hooray for the red, white, and blue, for the Constitution and Bill of Rights, for democracy, and for the two-party system. Happy Fourth!
