I encourage all Democrats to read Senator Jack Hatch’s editorial (DM Register April 20th,)! It is a clear explanation detailing the Republican’s “War on Women”
The attack on women is part of a much broader overall strategy waged by far right minority Republicans against the rights of the least empowered. It is a continuation of the Republican culture war conducted by the most powerful economic and ideological special interests in order to retain and increase their economic and political power. The short list of those targets include: eliminating union member’s voice in bargaining, targeting teachers as the cause for all problems in education, dismantling safety nets for the most vulnerable, refusal to increase minimum wages, vicious misinformation on health care reform, wholesale assaults on regulatory protections for the environment and consumer safety, targeting undocumented immigrants for deportation and refusal to accept equal rights for the LGBT community! In contrast, the Obama WH and Democrats are offering an agenda dedicated to protecting those least able to defend themselves against powerful economic and political interests. They believe a Democracy demands a level playing field for all. The founding fathers laid out a vision based on justice and liberty for all! President Obama and Democrats embrace and fight for the “for all”!
Reading this blog you probably see some or all your interests and values under attack as I have outlined above. We need each and every Democrat to get involved and fight against the Republican assault on fairness and equality for all. Every Democratic candidate needs help in fighting and winning in the 2012 election to advance our agenda. I encourage you to reach out to all our candidates from Obama on down and get involved! We can’t win if you don’t play! Join the Democrat’s team now and add your voice to the fight for liberty and justice for all!!!!!!!!!!!!
