Can we win?

As election day draws near I wonder if we really can win.  I have a growing sense of pessimism. Maybe it is because I have seen so many losses by my party in my short era of being politically active, or maybe it is that old notion that it is just too good to be true.  As I look at the very recent history of our nation it seems very likely that the Democrats will win; the wind is at their back.  But the democrats face a very powerful opponent, while weak, should not be underestimated.  I sure hope that the Democrats win on November 7th.  I feel as if a democratic victory is the most healthy move our republic can make to preserve Democracy and Freedom.  However, I feel like it is just…. sometimes just a dream.
