A Liberal’s Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives

Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the online petition "A Liberal's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives." If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider signing yourself.

5. When we make America the last Western democracy to have universal health coverage, and all Americans are able to get help when they fall ill, we promise that you, too, will be able to see a doctor, regardless of your ability to pay. And when stem cell research delivers treatments and cures for diseases that affect you and your loved ones, we'll make sure those advances are available to you and your family, too.
OK, the truth is I'm not nearly as gracious, forgiving and compassionate as the author, but I'd like to think that I could be. Someday.
