What Fresh Hell Is This?

The difference

The difference between shouting, "I love women" and showing you love women (and children, and men, and gays, and the poor, and the middle class, and vets, and the elderly, and all races...and everyone) is the difference between the two parties.

If farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from an empire…if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for a better life on our shores…if women could be dragged to jail for seeking the vote…if a generation could defeat a depression, and define greatness for all time…if a young preacher could lift us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream…and if proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love…then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream.  
Because in the end, more than anything else, that is the story of this country – the story of unwavering hope grounded in unyielding struggle.
