Secretary of State John Kerry urged Yale University graduates on Sunday to keep faith in government's ability to break gridlock, even as many problems remain unsolved.
Kerry, a 1966 graduate of Yale, told students and their families, faculty and staff at the Ivy League school's 313th commencement that some people don't believe they can make a difference "and the sum difference of all of this is that we do not believe we can make a difference ... we remain gridlocked."

Considering all the fawning over the Republicans on this site, I almost bring a balance to the mindless support of the Republicans--but not quite. By the way, thanks for giving me the opportunity to bring this up, Campus throwdown: Students are forcing out graduation speakers. Disgusting behavior from the leftist crowd, and here you were worried I was going to loose my Independent label! Yes, Mike of N.Y., T. Jefferson was my favorite Deist too.
The article points out that John Kerry, he served in Vietnam by the way, says have faith in government. Last I knew he was a democrat. I have only seen one person, John Y, saying the republicans are always right. So, Jim, in relation to this article, could you please provide the examples of people fawning over the republicans??? I see criticism in this thread by one of the democrats and you have more than doubled that effort to criticize the republicans. So, WHERE O WHERE do you see anybody fawning over the republicans, John Kerry, about whom the story is, certainly would not be one who is guilty of that.
Schtelur, frum the "Jesus was no Republican" website, The Record of Republican Corruption. I have no faith in the axis of Catholics and evangelicals either, The "Christian" Right Movement. Apparently the Republicans have had a lust to get into bed with the Catholic Church even by the end of the Civil War, The Perils of Popery. It's interesting how Catholics of both the Right and Left (Kerry) stay in good stead with the Romish Church?
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: ...Those who rule do so by divine appointment - sometimes being the lowliest of mankind and the least qualified. Every Christian is to live in subjection to these human governing authorities (knowing they have been put in that position by God) as a demonstration of obedience to God. This includes being good citizens and guarding our speech so as to speak evil of no one.
In America, Christians have the opportunity to vote knowing that God's vote is the only one that ultimately will count...
