President George Washington’s Farewell Address - 1796

The only thing you need to read to know who to vote for on November 4th.

There are really only 4 people running in the Congress and the Senate that will change America. That is John Boehner, Republican and Nancy Pelosi, Democrate for speaker of the house and Mitch McConnell, Republican and Harry Reid, Democrate for leader in the Senate. This coming federal election no matter where you are and no matter who you vote for, it will put one or the other in charge. The Republicans will follow Boehner and McConnell the Democrats will follow Pelosi and Reid. It’s that simple.

These are the differences in policy.

The Republicans are against increasing minimum-wage, against background checks for guns, against equal pay for women, against lowering student loan rates, against a path of citizenship for “dreamers,” against climate change legislation, do not believe in man-made climate change, in favor of Citizens United, unlimited money and donations in politics, for a balanced budget amendment, for lowering the tax rates on the richest Americans, for lowering corporate tax rates, for increasing military expenditures, against gay marriage, against a womans right to choose, against disclosing campaign donations, against GMO and food labeling, against incentives for renewable energy, against the legalization of industrial hemp, against the ban on importing ivory and in favor of requiring draconian ID in order to vote.

The Democrats are for increasing the minimum-wage, for background checks for guns, for equal pay for women, for lowering student loan rates, for a path of citizenship for “dreamers,” for climate change legislation, they believe man-made climate change is real, are against Citizens United, unlimited money and donations in politics, against a balanced budget amendment, against lowering the tax rates of the richest Americans, against lowering corporate tax rates, against increasing military expenditures, for gay marriage, for a womans right to choose, for disclosing campaign donations, for GMO and food labeling, for incentives for renewable energy, for the legislation of industrial hemp for the ban on importing ivory and against requiring draconian ID in order to vote.

So whose side are you on?

Vote with word and deed everyday and vote this November 4th.

Hello and exactly! Thank you for the link to the address. I have already voted because Washington state makes it easy with mail-in ballots.

I just wanted to add Harry S. Truman's speech as being a very good motivator for voting and political action too. It's a great short and solid speech and video.

Maybe Thom could incorporate it into his show? video:

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
