A Vote for All of Us: A fellow Democrat sent me an email today stating that he cast his vote for Barack Obama along with a host of other Democrats for various electoral offices in the Democratic primary to be held in March. I sent him an email in return. It read:

Kudos to you. You cast a vote for ALL of us who are not part of the greedy 1%. You cast a vote so that millions of us and generations that come after us will have a shot at the American Dream allowing us to breathe free. Now use your voice and I will use mine to shout loud and clear that a vote for any Republican is a vote to keep us and our voices down. We vote Democratic because of ALL the other ideals for which the Democratic party stands.

We all must go, throughout the land and proclaim as our president did we are ONE nation. We are not all black, we are not all white, we are not all Christian, we are not all Jewish or Muslim nor are we all straight but we are made up of a tapestry of humanity that deserves a fair shot. Republicans will not do that for us. They will simply keep us dumbed down and in our place allowing Wall Street to get away with literally murder once again. We must NOT let them. With a Democratic House and Senate and the re-election of our president more change for the 99% WILL come to America. I KNOW it will.

Let us go united to every city and town, and speak out against injustice, speak out against the voter ID requirement, speak out about voter suppression,speak out about egregious economic inequality engineered by Wall Street with the help of their Capitol friends and speak out against war. Yet again we are called as the great Martin Luther King pronounced the clarion call to us in my time:

We will speed the day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles,Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing... Free at last, free at last,thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.
