Here's a frightening look at what a Romeny-Ryan ticket looks like for the environment and our future. READ MORE»Tara Lohan / AlterNet
READ MORE--ENOUGH SAID.
THE REPUBLICAN ARE AFRAID THAT THE ONE AND ONLY WAY THEY CAN 'WIN' THIS ELECTION IS BY STEALING IT FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
One thing that I hate to do is to end a blog--day's posting on a negative note. Most especially, when there is positive action that is needed. After all, as the saying goes--Action Speaks Louder than words
The course of Action that I am asking for you to join me in, that is if you have not already, is-->
Dear Readers, I am passing on this e-mail for your consideration;
So far this cycle, my race in Ohio has been the #1 Senate target for far-right special interest groups, which have spent more than $15 million against me with more coming.
It's an unprecedented amount of spending, and we all know why it's happening this year -- the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United has unleashed a torrent of special interest cash, and brought the corruptive influence of corporate money down on our democracy.
That's why I've teamed up with the DSCC and Democrats across the country to overturn the effects of this decision by building momentum to pass a constitutional amendment.
380,522 of you have joined the fight to end Citizens United by signing our petition. But we need to keep that momentum going strong. And since we're only about 10 weeks away from Election Day, I want to add 10,000 more signers to our effort right now.
Click here to sign the petition, and show your support for overturning Citizens United and getting corporate money out of our elections.
The process of passing a constitutional amendment is painstakingly slow, and requires that we continue to apply strong pressure.
With your help, I know we can get this done. Thank you for joining Senate Democrats and me in the fight to overturn Citizens United.
After all, the alternative to Re-Electing Sherrod Brown is Electing Josh Mandel--Why Not Josh Mandel, among the many reasons--There Is Also-->
Dear Readers, I am passing this e-mail on from THE LEAGUE OF CONSERVATIONIST VOTERS;
Did you see the front page of today’s Cleveland Plain Dealer?It’s right there, in black and white: Ohio Senate candidate Josh Mandel is proudly proclaiming that he’s a climate change denier.This is what’s at stake in this year’s election – and why it’s so important that we re-elect a Senator Sherrod Brown.Can you join us in fighting back against anti-science politicians like Josh Mandel with a donation to Senator Brown via LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen?In this article, Mandel says that climate science “is inconclusive and riddled with fraud” – blatantly ignoring the fact there is now overwhelming scientific consensus on global warming.
But the sad truth is that this kind of anti-environmental rhetoric from Mandel is not new. Throughout this campaign, he has attacked various environmental safeguards and clean air protections. He’s even labeled those of us who support such policies as “radical.”Conversely, Senator Brown has an LCV lifetime environmental score of 93 percent. He has repeatedly supported clean energy policies that reduce harmful pollution and bring new green jobs to Ohio.Help Senator Brown raise $10,000 in the next 24 hours to demonstrate that LCV supporters are willing to stand up to climate-denying politicians.The Ohio Senate race is one of the most competitive in the country. Pro-oil interest groups, like Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, have already spent millions attacking Senator Brown. We may not be able to match Rove’s millions, but we can help ensure that Senator Brown has the resources to get his message out to voters across the state. Please chip in today.
