Time for change in the U.S.

There still are many Republicans among us who refuse to accept the fact that there are others in our community who do not believe what they do.

There are still Democrats, and some Republicans, who believe the federal government has a responsibility to all of us, including the poor, people of color, religions other than Christianity, the elderly, the young, and all of us when it comes to health care, etc.

The conservatives believe that the only ones needing protection by the government are the wealthy, and the corporations. They refuse to acknowledge that there are others who need the help of the government, such as public education, the Social Security retirees and the people of New Orleans. Incidentally, what happened to the many promises made to the people of New Orleans by our government after the disaster that happened there? We sorely need a change now.
