IDignity Program helps voters obtain proper identification

 
Greetings Fellow Democrats,

The following is a wonderful program formed by members of five churches in Central Florida, called the IDignity Program.

Voter Suppression has made it difficult for American Citizens to vote and these members recognized the need for a program that would help the disadvantaged not only obtain ID's to register but also proper personal  identifications to conduct other personal business with dignity.   Based on this need these men and woman formed an organization called IDignity. Please go to  their website for detailed information. www.IDignity.org

The President's Accomplishments

The President's Accomplishments
Have you ever had a conversation with someone who tells you they have lost confidence in President Barack Obama?  The question I immediately think is WHY?   So I pose the question to the person, "Why?"  The answer 9 times out of 10 is, "He has not done what he promised us, or worst, he hasn't done a thing."  Well I think the following information will alleviate any doubts people may have.

Here are 45+ accomplishments of President Barack Obama:

Why Republicans won't raise taxes on the wealthy? Grover Norquist won't let them!

Why did 100% of all Republicans in the US Senate vote against The American Jobs Act?  This bill would create around 1.9 million jobs and raise the GDP by two points.  It is also fully paid for by increasing the tax rate on the top 1%.  If 66% of Americans believe we should increase the taxes on the top 1%, why is there so much deadlock in Congress?

Would you believe it is because of one man, this man, Grover Norquist?
As President of Americans for Tax Reform (a tax advocacy group), Norquist created a pledge that says the signer will not raise taxes for ANY reason. He applies pressure for them to sign and then continues to apply pressure to make sure they don't go back on the pledge. 41 out of 47 Republican Senators and 236 out of 242 Republican House Representatives have signed this pledge.  Many Republican Governors including Gov. Rick Scott, Gov. Scott Walker and Gov.Rick Perry also signed this  and the list goes on and on to the state legislator level.

It is time that We the People take Our country back from the obstructionists who have no desire to honor the will of the people but instead cater to the will of Grover Norquist. Below we have listed a copy of the pledge along with a list of those in the 112th Congress and the sitting state legislators who have signed this pledge.  We have also included links on how to contact these politicians to remind them that they serve the People not Norquist.

1 Million Strong for Barack Obama

Are you part of the one million who have taken ownership of this campaign? 
If not, you should be!

No jobs? How about an occupation?



What is the Occupy Wall Street movement? Are you the 99%? Is it Class Warfare?

What began in New York on September 17th, 2011 has grown to a nationwide movement, reaching as far as Jacksonville, Florida. But what is it?
