    I don't know anything about who put this out, but the contents speak for themselves. I give it five stars out of five.

    Surprising that you would blindly support a Norman Lear, Media Matters production.. but it is nice to see you walk across the aisle once and a while, amazing what you can learn..

    Norman Lear's Patriotism: Born Again American - The Washington Note

    Arianna Huffington Loves the idea... there is also videos accompanying it..

    Arianna Talks To Norman Lear: "It's My Christening As A Born Again American" (VIDEO)

    There are of course detractors, oh damn!!!

    I support the sentiments of the video: America belongs to those who want to make it a great place to live, with fairness and freedom for everyone to express themselves.

    For the record, I am not a supporter of Norman Lear's general point of view; I think his liberalism is myopic, as is most of "liberalism": ""we support 'anything' you say (as long as we agree with it)"".

    Anywho, the vids OK with me. Living up to it is the challenge, for Mr. Lear and all of us.

    It is good initiative, and it's rare we find something to agree on so let's celebrate this moment.

    Declare Yourself - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Founded by TV producer and philanthropist Norman Lear, and led by Honorary Co-Chairs and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford, "Declare Yourself" is described in their literature as a "national nonpartisan, nonprofit campaign initiated in 2004 to energize and empower a new movement of young voters to participate in the 2004 presidential election. From January through Election Day 2004, over one million young and first-time voters registered to vote through events at Declare Yourself's spoken word and music tour of college campuses.

    There's clearly a need to rise above partisan ideology and realize the "logic of the heart", as Mother Moon once said in some public speeches she made years ago. The age of true love is here. The eternal world is the world of love, and we need to do everything we can to prepare for that final stop on this earthly journey.
