I’m Big Enough To Admit I’m Afraid Of My Own Shadow—Why Don’t Right-Wingers Admit That Fear Is What Moves Them?

I’m big enough to admit that I am afraid of my own shadow.

I never know what it is going to do next. Look at that picture—I feel my shadow is staring right back at me.

I wish some of these paranoid Obama-haters and government-haters would admit that at core they are afraid of a changing America.

They are afraid of the very nation they live in and that they are citizens of. 

I’m tired of progress in this country being held back by people who are afraid, but who hide that fear with ceaseless anger and by being reflexively obstructionist.

Let go folks. Let’s move ahead so we can have more decent lives.
