Obama Delegate and Getting Involved To Make A Difference

Hi Thanks for stopping by today. This was on very busy day.  I am just getting to my blog at 8p.m.  I headed off to the Boulder County Democratic Convention at 7 a.m.  I was an Obama delegate and I listen to many talks by numerous candidates for office in the county, in the state, and of course for President.  This was my first convention ever and it was fun to participate in democracy in action.  One thing about us Democrats is that we are not big rule followers so part of the process seemed chaotic at times.  That makes it also more alive.  By the way Obama won the vote at the county convention winning 75% of the vote.  

I had an image of the same convention of Republicans with every thing in order, everybody following the rules, no one challenging the doctrine of domination by those in power, and everyone moving in rigid unison.  Now image the very wooden and uninspiring McCain leading the way.  

How did you day go for you?  Did you do something out of the ordinary?  Are you stuck in a rut?  It is way too easy to find yourself doing the same things over and over.  This convention was a nice break for me.  I very much like exploring new things, new places, new ideas, and new ways of going about life.  

What could you do tomorrow that would really spice up your life?  This is an election year, I am sure your local political party would welcome you getting involved.  There are many opportunities to give of your time, energy, and resources.  Getting involved makes you feel good about yourself.  There were many at the convention who decided this was the year to not sit on the sidelines.  New leadership is badly needed and you can make a difference.  

Find a way to get involved in turning this country in the right direction.  This is a great way to move out of the ordinary and make you live feel more alive and meaningful.  Talk to you tomorrow.
