Clear choice in election


As donors to the Obama campaign, we’d like to thank the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, big corporate oil, the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance industry and, of course, Wall Street for further stretching our already tight household budget. We remain firm in our resolve to help restrain and counteract the power of big money and its supposed constitutional right to unlimited free speech under the Republican Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in Citizens United.

The Republicans’ stated goal of ensuring that Obama’s presidency fails is tantamount to treason, since the only way to make Obama fail is to make America fail as well, both economically and in terms of public health, education and infrastructure. Who wants to vote for that?

The conventions showed that we have a real choice in this election: selfish millionaires, white supremacists and religious bullies who want women’s bodies to become government/church property the moment they get pregnant? Or a party that pretty much looks, acts and thinks like 21st century America: honest day’s work for an honest dollar, everyone pays their fair share, and everyone’s kid gets an equal shot at a good, quality education and a chance to help make this already great country even greater?
