"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

We Must Be the Voice of Reason

Today kicks of another DNC get out the vote drive. They are in need of as many people as possible to show up at an event and canvass for the Dems.

It is no secret that the Pukes have many more years experience at getting out the vote. They have massive databases and the Christian Right just cannot wait to get busy for them; organizing, making phone calls, manipulating each other and their family and friends (doin’ the work of god, dontcha know.)

The Pukes own the media and it is pointless to think that the Dems will get any representation from the talking heads. The media has their own agenda (what with all of the money to be made from illegal wars and stuff.) We cannot count on the media to report accurately or to offer a platform for our Party. We must be their voice.

America is ripe for alternatives. We need to get busy and give them some.

We must be the voice for the Dems. We must get out and be active. For every person who bitches ‘where are the Dems?’ and ‘why don’t the Dems speak out?’ realize that we are the Dems, we must speak out, we are here – stand up and be counted.

How many times does the media repeat ‘the Dems have no plans on Iraq’ and are ‘weak on National Security’?

How about these plans:

the Biden plan

the Boxer plan

Center for American Progress Plan endorsed by many Dems

Real Security Act

Feingold on Iraq

Kennedy on Real Security

Harkin on waste, fraud and abuse

Levin on Iraq

Leahy on Iraq

the Kerry plan

Kerry’s plan in more detail

Real Security

Feingold talking points

The Murtha plan

House Out of Iraq Caucus

House Dems on Iraq

Well, there is a hell of a lot more here than ‘stay the course’.

For good measure I held my nose and visited the RNC and several Puke Senator’s websites…there is no plan for Iraq except stay the course. Oh, and Iraq has been all lumped in with the ‘war on terra’ and I did not find on any of the Senators sites that I visited a button for “Iraq”. Interesting.

In fairness, Frist released a statement on the Senate Republican site about his recent visit to Iraq. According to Frist, ‘we must continue to win the hearts and minds’ (heh, through torture, indefinite detention, displacement and murdering family members?) and he is convinced that Al Qaeda released a letter stating that they are losing. (I might add, he also supports Hastert, the enabler of child predators.)

I wonder how come the talking heads never ask “what is the Republican plan for getting out of the clusterfuck that is Iraq?” Not a mention of ‘they broke it, they must fix it…’ Silence. I would really like to see a ‘Dem Strategist’ say this next time that they are on one of the talking heads shows…but I digress.

The point is, the media will not report on the Dems plans so we must do it for them. There is plenty of opportunity to get out there today with other Dems and take back our Country. We must do this. This is the most important election of our lives.

What to say when you knock on doors?

Here are some great sites for talking points:

Straight Talk

Frameshop

Center for American Progress

One America Committee

DNC

DCCC

DSCC

The Democrats

UPDATE: Look at these numbers. New Newsweek Poll shows the GOP at record lows.

Shows the Preznit at 33%.

Holy crap.

    Right you are, the button is a little loud . Here's the site :

    Glassy Buttons

    I haven't learned how to make them do the roll-over effect, so I used just one of the jpeg. images that this thing makes. If you have any trouble let me know. I'll be glad to help. This button maker is a lot of fun.
