    Footprints of the opposition

    by DSwede Written Oct 16, 2014

    I won't get into politics, nor their arguments frequently. My family is split on so many issues that some of us delicately tiptoe around the issues such that we don't alientate or offend the others in the house.

    in 1828, Jackson was labeled a jackass during his capaign when his critics thought his policy of 'let the people rule' was silly. Thus the donkey was born. It as about 50 years later when Harper's cartoonists drew the Republican elephant. Out side the Old City Hall, you can stand with or against either as you see fit.

    Boston is pretty divided, you won't know who's a republican or a democrat, and that last election was hell on this city.We even had a very expensive Democratic Convention. Don't even mebtion it, it's depressing to everyone cuz we are all freaked out over the war...

    Bostonians and New Englanders...

    Bostonians and New Englanders in general are very politically active. I snapped this picture of a campaign poster for JFK at the JFK Museum (see 'must see activities).
