For The Good of the Country

On September 3, I took part in a rally in support of Barack Obama's efforts to reform the health care system. An estimated 3,000 supporters showed up (and were completely ignored by local media), as well as a small contingent of counter-demonstrators, screaming about the dangers of Socialism. I spoke with one of them in depth, who revealed himself to be a Ron Paul supporter. It was an interesting conversation, to say the least. I thanked him for showing up, even though he was completely opposed to the effort I was there to support, because I believe in free speech, even when I disagree with the content. More photos (and signage designs) here.
