Republican Rebels

Back in the days of the Contras and the Sandinistas - remember that? I unsuccessfully tried to convince my school's very-liberal Third World Society to invite a member of the Reagan administration to speak about their support for war in Central America. Those were very shrill times, and everybody thought I was trying to invite Evil into the room.

Today what is left of Reagan is largely nostalgia, and that old Sandinista Ortega is back in power as a born-again capitalist millionaire (thanks to the Bush administration's clumsy diplomats). Ideology dissolves as history marches on.

At any rate, my point is that when the stakes are high and differences loom large, it is worth listening to the other side. In that spirit, I have only respect for Conservatives for Change and Republicans for Obama.

If you are a Republican for Obama, you are not alone.
