Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! I'm excited to be here.

As for like-minded folks, I'm fairly outspoken about my beliefs and thoughts, so I've found quite a few. Just about everyone at work was excited beyond belief about Obama's election, even the conservatives in the bunch. It was great. I have a friend who's so liberal she makes me look conservative and she lives just a few miles away. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event that led us to believe that success was beyond our grasp.

Yea, there are few liberals here in Illinois. We had a Gov. Good Hair too.....luckily he's not our Gov. anymore. Now we have Quinn the hairless...infinitely better!

Welcome! I'm from Colorado and our Representative, Betsy Markey, a Democrat, voted against the health care bill. And our Democratic governor, Ritter, has taxed us every which way he can. I'll have no one to vote for in the next election! With Democrats like these, I'll be surprised if Colorado will stay blue.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Hey Magic, Welcome! You'll get your dose of liberal here. Are there any other transplants to Arizona that share your beliefs or are you stuck listening the wingnuts all the time?

I'm in the Chicago area but, I live in what use to be a Repub county...not no more!

Welcome to our team! I live in a red state that went blue too (Indiana), although I doubt that it will stay that way.


Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you can�t get them back. So I�m gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

My friends call me Pamela (not Pam) - I live in northeastern Indiana

Look for me on facebook or chat with me on yahoo!

I'm new to this SparkTeam and just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I moved to Phoenix from Denver about 3 years ago and beamed with PRIDE last November when I saw that Colorado went blue. Here I am, in a red state, trying to stay positive and friendly. See me grinning? :-)
