WHY I WILL BE VOTING TODAY!

Nov. 4, 2014  By Jack Kodell (in association with Fair and Unbalanced.com – see my Blogroll in the lower right column).

Both Burr Deming and I have been urging all progressives to vote today. We view this act to be especially important today, as anti-worker, pro-corporate, government-hating Tea Party-infested obstructionist Republicans, especially Libertarian billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson, have been pouring MILLIONS into this election in an effort to gain control of the U.S. Senate  for the Republican Party. We in the 99% MAJORITY absolutely MUST thwart this plan and prove to them once and for all that MONEY IS NOT FREE SPEECH!

To help illustrate the importance of this election,  our resident podcaster extroardinaire Burr Deming has prepared a special Election Day message for us.

burr demingIn Burr’s own words, “I have discovered, through introspection and my relationships with others, that most people have a low tolerance for injustice. When we encounter the unfairness of life, in little ways and great, humankind faces a great divide.  

The hatred of injustice causes much of humanity to deny that it exists. Rationalization often involves more than simple inaction. Victims of injustice are sometimes victimized again in calloused attitudes. So we cheer for the giant who beats the little guy into submission.  

But much of humanity recognizes the injustice that stares back at us.  We know it exists. We know it is wrong. We know that subjecting the little guy to the mercies of the selfish and powerful is evil in motion.  

That is why I am a Democrat.
That is why I will be voting today.
That is why I will be asking friends to vote.”

About jackjodell53

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
