Today, as I was walking into Trader Joe's, a man with a clipboard held it out and said "Recall Gray Davis". I said "No", and walked on. One person after another signed the petition. It's not that our Governor inspires me with great loyalty. I voted for him, but never have been an enthusiastic fan. While fully endorsing our right to petition for recall or solicit for bills to be placed on the ballot, I have become increasingly suspicious of the people that show up at the local market and malls. I think most of them are paid by people or organizations that have something to gain by fooling people into voting for things that are not what they seem.

...Then the internal rant began and I started thinking about "agendas"... Why is it that liberals are always accused of having agendas, but people who call themselves conservatives think of themselves as loyal patriotic Americans? It seems to me that Republicans have far more agendas than Democrats. ...And they are usually neither conservative nor more patriotic than those of us who ask questions. As I came out of the store, the man with the clipboard asked me again "Recall Davis"? I said "No, Recall Bush!" A man signing the petition smiled at me. And I got into the car thinking how I am still in love with the idea of the United States of America!
