Why vote for the President? Here are just a few reasons…

  • 25 months of consecutive job growth and net positive job creation, notwithstanding the GOP’s Great Recession and obstruction of the passage of the Jobs Bill Act
  • The revitalization of the automotive industry (his opponent wanted to “Let Detroit go bankrupt”)
  • The passage of Obamacare which requires health insurance companies to insure individuals with pre-existing conditions (his opponent thinks if you can’t afford it, you should go to the emergency room)
  • The repeal of DADT and DOJ decision to not defend DOMA in the courts
  • Holding Osama bin Laden to account
  • Ending the war in Iraq
  • Creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Passage of Lilly Ledbetter Act
  • Unprecedented support for marriage equality
  • Creation of More Jobs at Faster Rate Under Democratic Presidents, President Obama Included [link]
  • Appointment of two Supreme Court Justices

Voting for Romney would create an American Handmaids Tale and bring us into the twilight zone. Let’s not go back, but FORWARD.


This Year, Voting Is An Act of Defiance Against Malicious Forces

This year, voting is more than just the core responsibility of citizenship; it is an act of defiance against malicious political forces determined to reduce access to democracy. Millions of ballots on Tuesday — along with those already turned in — will be cast despite the best efforts of Republican officials around the country to prevent them from playing a role in the 2012 election.
