Harry Taylor for Congress, NC-09, On Dec 12, Courage is Contagious

America’s constitutional system is a work of genius. But today that system is broken. That’s the simple truth here. And I think most of us know it.

You can see this truth in the failed adventure in Iraq. Only a Congress without a spine would allow a president to send our kids to war 10,000 miles away from home for no good reason and with no plan for victory.

You can see this truth in a national debt that has spiraled out of control. Only a Congress that had lost its mind would help pile up three trillion dollars in debt in just the past seven years alone.

You can see the truth of our broken system in the shameful way that Washington hasn’t lifted a finger to deal with energy independence or climate change. Only a Congress in the pocket of special interest groups would ignore the reality of global warming for year after year even as glaciers melt and temperatures rise.

You can see the truth of America’s failed politics in the complete collapse of our healthcare system. Only a Congress beholden to an extreme ideology of every one for themselves could allow 47 million Americans to go without healthcare coverage, watching as thousands of our citizens literally die every year from lack of coverage, and yet do nothing at all to address the problem.

Finally, you can see our broken system in the ways that America’s economy no longer works for everyone. Only a Congress that is bought and paid for by the super rich would look the other way as most income gains in the past seven years went to the top five percent of households, and America’s middle class – which is the very bedrock of our society – struggles to make ends meet.

It’s time for some members of Congress to go. And we have one of them right here in Charlotte.

Our nightmare started on December 12, 2000 when the Supreme Court appointed George W. Bush president. Sue Myrick stood with this president virtually 100% of the time. On December 12, 2007 we need your help in retiring Sue Myrick.

On December 12th, we’re asking 4,000 Harry Taylor supporters to contribute at least $25…to raise $100,000 in a single day! Will you stand with me to take our country back? Sign up here.

Thanks for your support!

Go Harry!

I'm ready for a change and you're just the one to bring it!

We're Here Harry!

Mr. Taylor,

We are here! Don't think you don't have people helping...we are here! It takes an ordinary person to make a remarkable change and you are that person. We are with you all the way.

Just wanted to let out a big Scream...We Are Here For Harry!

Taylor showed the extraordinary courage that the ordinary man is capable of when he asked President Bush that now famous question.

This is the kind of person we need in Congress - one who is willing to ask the hard questions, the obvious questions, and even the embarrassing questions. If a little more than half of Congress were willing to do that now, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now.

Good Luck Harry. I'll chip in.

Thanks Harry

Thanks for running Harry. With so much to be done. We'll need courage like yours to tackle the issues that will affect every American. Issues that will be beneficial to moving the country forward. It will be one of the great pleasures of my life to serve next to you in Congress.

Help elect Harry...help recruit more Harry's!

The best way to make a dent here in NC is to recruit more quality candidates to run. The best way to recruit is to show people we'll support them! I'm in Harry...and am sending emails to everyone I know to help you too!

Thanks...

Thank You For Running

Mr. Taylor,

It takes courage to be an American in the world we live in today. Our current administration has ruined our reputation around the world and we really need ordinary people to do remarkable things, like you. I know that it takes real commitment to be on the campaign trail, first hand. Don't back down, stick to your principles, listen to your heart and remember to take time out for yourself.

It is a long battle to fight. You made the first step when walking into a room full of secret service agents, conservatives and President Bush. The second step was to muster up the courage to ask the President of the United States a hard question and give your opinion. The third step was to run against Sue. People are tired of the same old rhetoric and don't ever forget that "we the people" stand beside you wherever you are.

Thank you.
