Pay close attention to this election, I won't be here for it and it is important for you to vote - not only for you, but for my granddaughter. Take care of her, and work hard to give her the life she deserves, and the rights we worked so hard for to give to you.

My Mom passed away this past May, and my Father 17 years ago. Both were life long members of the Democratic party. This vote is for them, for us, and for my little girl.


My parents:

with both of my parents in the living room watching the election - it may have been the first time I actually heard my Mother swear. Both of my parents were very strong Dems and I don't think I could thank them enough for instilling those same values in me.

The only thing I remember he did at the time was to bring the military back to a proud fighting force. Other than that he ruined the unions and hurt the country. He is the one who has left us with people hating government. All for the wrong reasons. Republicans are destroying this country's safety net. That want to make it a pay as you go america and yes even down to education. It's so scary. If Obama were white he would have won in a landslide.

Yes, part of my vote was for her and her future in a country that values women.

Romney would have to put extreme right wing misogynists on the Supreme Court if he wanted to keep the crazies aboard for a second term. It's unacceptable.

Thank you your Parents those who fought the Good Fight and those who Continue to fight with more strength and integrity. For those who believe Math and Science matter. For those who believe that Humanity has no color. For those who believe Sexual Orientation is none of our personal business. For those who believe We Are All In This TOGETHER!!!!!!!!Today we stand as a Great Nation whose Democracy is being challenged. And today is the day where the Greatness of the PEOPLE show the WORLD that WE WILL be HEARD over Media Noise and Monetary Interest. That to hold the office of President It must be Served With Integrity for All People. Lying to Nation is Highly unacceptable in all Circumstances!!!!
