Campaigns and Majority Matters
On June 26th I issued a pre-primary press release that underscored the importance of substantive dialogue of issues rather than sloganeering and deceptive character attacks. I also posted it on this blog. Now we are through the primaries, and we have nominees to support.
We have only 73 days remaining until the election and we must put aside our differences and work together to elect Democrats in November. Any vote for a Republican is a vote for Bush, Cheney, Rove, Delay, Abramoff, Coburn, and the others who are part of a failed administration and a fiscally irresponsible Congress. Any vote for a Republican is a vote for a Republican majority at the state capitol and will allow Jimmy Todd and the KoolAid drinkers an opportunity to push our state back at least 50 years.
So, don't even think about it, don't threaten it, don't talk about it, friends don't let friends vote Republican. You may not agree with a candidate 100% and you may not approve of their campaign tactics, but folks we are up against Karl Rove and he doesn't play fair, he plays to win.
Pick a candidate, pick a race, and do everything you can to promote that Democrat, to invite others to work with you to mobilize Democrats to the polls in November. If you feel the urge to whine, to complain, and be angry, grab a handful of M&Ms and be reminded that Majority Matters. Yes, Majority Matters. Politics is not about one candidate, one issue, or one election, it's about moving an agenda forward and to do that we must have a majority. Majority Matters. So do good manners.
