Please sign this open letter to NC voters.

Yesterday I wrote about the power of one individual vote in one individual district to change the world for the greater good. Today I'm asking that you join me in signing an open appeal to all North Carolinians currently represented by Republicans in Congress.

To: North Carolinians with Republican Congressmen

On November 7th, you have the opportunity to change the course of history. Using the most powerful tool in the world, your vote, you can restore America's integrity and honor.

North Carolina Republicans in Congress have betrayed American values. They have sold us out to moneyed interests, driving up stock prices and driving down wages. They have pushed through health policies that protect drug companies instead of senior citizens. They have created massive deficits. They have condoned the practice of torture. They aren't taking care of your district because they aren't taking care of America. And if they stay in power any longer, bad will turn to worse. You can already see it coming.

The only way to change the course is for at least one house of Congress to be controlled by Democrats.

Your individual vote on November 7 could be the one that changes the world. So when you go to the polls, please cast your ballot for the Democratic candidate.

We are your neighbors here in North Carolina, and we thank you very much.

Why couldn't we get a million registered Democrats in North Carolina to join in signing this petition?

It will take a lot of word-spreading to make something big happen. So if you're willing to help, please:

1. Link the petition or this entry to your personal blog
2. Email the link to the petition to your personal lists of friends and family
3. Post the link in comments on open threads in other blogs like those listed here.

Thanks for all you do.

Seven signatures so far!

At this rate we'll have a million signatures in, ummm, 28.3 years!

:)

Just kidding. This is just the beginning of a snowball. They always start small.

Thanks!

Drip. Drip. Drip.

My daughter (16) signed the petition this morning and was very proud to be participating!

So this is why people voted R in 04?

By acting apparently against our interests, we do better in the long run

We've evolved to be this stupid?

Only a few hundred thousand to go!

WOOT!

#30....that's like 210 in dog years...

...and believe me, my dogs would sign if they could.

Conscious evolution, it's what turns me on. There's got to be a difference between right and wrong.-DTB

Patrick McHenry got dissed

at Think Progress today.

Wish WNCNN had a few episodes about McHenry and Foxx.

I'm thrilled...

his empty rhetoric was considered to be just that...what an absolute shame if the voters of NC-10 think he's the best they can do. Aside from the old, tired and obvious "blame the Democrats" meme, without any evidence whatsoever,and actually evidence to the contrary, is McHenry really suggesting that a Democrat revealing Foley's crimes (timetable and all) would exonerate the Florida Representative of his disgusting behavior? I really don't think Mr. and Mrs. Parent of Minor Children USA are going to care where the info came from...I think they're glad it was revealed...PERIOD. Will we ever see the day again where the the right thing is done, politics be damned?

A little OT, but

what's up with Greensboro? Are there any good blogs or boards in that area with decent traffic?

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

i'll sign

and i'll post on my blog..sometime today i hope, for my 15 readers, hehe, every little bit helps i guess.

You're link is broken

You should put a link in your sig and in your profile, too.

Posted at official Moore County Dems site. . .

. . .With the blessing of our county chair. We have a meeting tonight - and will read the letter aloud, and ask all of our members to go sign. We'll have a computer there ready for them to do it, should they so desire.

Hubby thought this might be an "empty gesture" - I reminded him that all gestures are empty, except for those to whom they mean something. Energizing the party is a good right now, and I think this is a great way to do it.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Ghandi

Oh Hubby

You need to listen to your wife more often. Indeed, all gestures are empty until they're filled.

What's wrong with reaching out to people suffering under incompetent Republican representatives and asking for their help in turning our country around?

Thank you for encourage others to sign. If we get a critical mass, I will personally buy ads in key newspapers to carry the message farther.

NPR

There was a segment on NPR this morning paid for by some guy for his wife's birthday. What is BlueNC covered the cost of a local politics segment?
How much would that be?

Good Idea Robert, I'd be in for a donation

toward that! More eyes on the blog, more messages out to the masses!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

40 sigs ...

in about 24 hrs ... on the weekend. It'll be interesting to see if the weekday traffic bump adds momentum.

48 signatures!

If we can get 200 signatures, I will create a newspaper ad and run it in whatever paper you guys want.

Jesus Camp

OMG. The Google ad plastered on the petition is for the Jesus Camp movie. What will they think of next.

63 signatures!

Sure hope we do a better job getting to the polls than we do signing petitions!

:)

A, I went into edit and stole you're entire post

I'm really, really short on time. I hosted the graphic myself, but stole the rest of the post. Otherwise, it might have never made it to SD in time. I'm really sorry I didn't get it posted until today.

You missed one sentence

"They may have known about an online predator and done nothing to rein him in."

Thanks Christian Dem

Seems we missed it, but the MSM sure is pushing the Republican talking points on that aren't they. Insinuating that it's the Dems fault because they "May have known about it"....what about those WHO DID KNOW ABOUT IT AND DID NOTHING.....guess that's not what's important.
