Fighting for America

Carl Mumpower’s remark, “The fight for America is not over” [“The Blue Dog Barks,” Xpress, Nov. 18], struck me as a myopic, arrogant comment. But then I realized—by Jove, he’s correct, because the millions of us who worked hard in the campaigns for Obama and all our Democratic candidates realize we still have a long way to go until we see true equality and freedom of choice in America. And we won’t quit working until we reach that goal for all citizens, not just those such as Mumpower and the Bush family.

Yes, Mr. Mumpower, the fight for America is not over, and we haven’t forgotten it—and are unlikely to do so.
