I am very sorry that you are so upset about Healthcare, however, this is the first time since I have started voting that a bill I actually like and suport was passed. You had 8 uninterrupted years of the legislation you like- and though I disagreed with most of it I accepted that that was what was happening in American politics at the time and continued to vote my beliefs at the polls until finally in 2008 it paid off. Perhaps you don’t understand the way politics in America work- it goes in cycles. You had your time, now it’s mine, and I’m sure yours will come again, and then mine will come again. The United States has been alternating parties in power since it’s inception. Trust me, I understand your feelings- when we went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan I was so angry I felt like I didn’t want to be a part of the country I was a citizen of. I was so appalled. That seems to be the way you are feeling now, and I am sorry because that is an awful way to feel about your country. However, I haven’t felt so in-tune with my country in a long time. Finally, I feel like something I have been championing for so long has come to pass. Not necessarily as I would have liked it- I certainly would be more excited about a more radical bill but nonetheless, this is what I have been waiting for. So, while I am truly sorry that you seem not to care a wit about human rights and are therefore very upset that America is actually acknowledging some for once, calm down and vote the next time you have a chance- please stop throwing a tantrum because you didn’t get your way this time. All I ask is that you act like mature grown-ups and not extremists. Honestly some of the things I have heard you say today have scared me more than any terrorist ever has. I’m sure it’s just your emotion talking and that you don’t mean to sound so violent. I know it’s probably too much to ask that you let me enjoy this but I will ask that you conduct yourselves according to the rules of common human decency, just as I did for the 8 years I was on the losing end of the legislation.
