From now on, I'll be putting up a banner for each state in which we've endorsed a candidate in reverse alphabetical order. The candidates from Louisiana will be featured again on November 4th and 5th. If you plan to vote early or by absentee ballot,congratulate yourself for exercising your hard-won right to participate in our democracy, keeping it alive in the face of the un-American, destructive forces of both parties in Washington (Joe Manchin, that would be you).
If any of these candidates are running to represent your district or state (Federal and Gubernatorial candidates will be listed collectively), we encourage you to donate or volunteer to help their campaign and finally VOTE!
This will be an election that we ALL should be involved in, so watch, learn, and then ACT! Think your vote doesn't count or that politics has nothing to do with your life? Tell that to Christine Blasey Ford, to the parents of the kids poisoned in Flint; to the families of victims of Sandy Hook, Orlando, and Parkland; and to the 16-yernar-old girl raped by a priest (or a Supreme Court judge) and then forced to have the child by the ideologues who will do NOTHING to help her or her child once it's born. Tell it to everyone on the Coasts now suffering an alphabet of hurricanes and unnamed earthquakes and wildfires because Trump and American greed are destroying what little natural balance exists, always choosing profit over science.
Politics not only influences your life, it IS your life. From the cost of milk to the cost (financial and environmental) of gas; from your right to freedom of speech to your right to love who you love; to your need for insulin and the cost preventing you from having it to being able to go to the doctor when you need to, and finally, from your clueless apathy that perpetuates wrong to your fierce activism that drives you to fight for right and even to courageously run for office to create change, politics is yours.
It doesn't matter why or how -- PROGRESSIVES MUST VOTE!
HEADLINE! I'M SICK! OHIO WILL REMAIN!
