So I Am On A Calling Spree To Elected Officials, Tell Me Who To Call & Why...

I've exhausted all of my local officials, and I live in Indiana on the Ohio border so Ive Made quite a bit of calls lol....

Btw I spoke with the city of Cincinnati's Mayor's chief of staff thanking the mayor for having the courage to proclaim Cincinnati a "sanctuary city" and believe it or not he was familiar with DemocraticUnderground so were doing something right!!! lol

While I'm at it I wanna thank the anonymous DU'er that donated a heart for me!

Activist Alert: Lets Take DU Mainstream...How Can You Contribute?

Now That 2017 Is Here, I Personally Have Left The 2016 Election Mourning Stage But There Is No Chance In Hell I'm Ready To Go Into The Acceptance Stage...I Do Not & Will Not Accept President Select Trumps Radical Policies Or The Agenda He, The Russians & The Republican Party Prepare To Ensue After January 20th! So Please Take The Time To Read This Post In Its Entirety & Perhaps You Can Help Me, Help DU....


When I Joined In 2003 DU Was A Well Organized Passionate Physical Presence...
For Example At Bush's Inauguration There Was A DU Tent Members From Across The Country Who Were Coming To Protest Were Told Where & What Time To Meet Up, Same. With The Anti War Rallies In Cities Across The Country, In Some Cases These Rallies Were Organized By DU, & That Was Before The Ability To Advertize Such Events & Social Gatherings On Facebook...

I Understand The Lack Of Events Over The Course Of The Obama Administration But With The Help Of The DU Admins & Support Of Members We Can Become An Activist Group That Has A True Physical Presence In The Political Arena.

We Can Widen Our Base To College Campuses, Take Over Failing Local Democratic Parties & Re-Invent & ReInvest The DU Democratic Party: A More Liberal Party Focused On Key Issues Such As Fighting Poverty, Raising The Minimum Wage, etc.

DU Can Be The Next ACORN Or The Liberal Version Of Breitbart, We Can Summon The Work That John Edwards Was Doing (Before His Downfall) Such As The One America Organization That Fought For Those Living In Poverty, That Helped Raise The Minimum Wage In So Many States, We Can Raise Our Voices & Say Hard Work Deserves Fair Pay, We Can Fight Overtime Pay & Workers Rights & Support Unions & Those That Are Trying To Organize A Union, Along With Continuing Standing Up & Standing With The LGBT Community, Immigrants, Those Who For Too Long Have Felt Disrespected Or Discriminated Against...

In This New Year, 2017, It Is My Wish That We The DU Community Can & Will Sum Up The Courage To Begin Again The Work Of Taking Back Our Country. I Have No Illusions That This Will Be Easy. There Will Be Set Backs & People Who Claim We're Irrelevant, But We Must Know Our Causes Are Worth Fighting For, Our Ideas & Our Actions Will Help To Ensure Common Sense Solutions That Will Remind The Working Class Not Just Why They Should Vote Democrat, But Remind Them That They Are Democrats Because Anyone That Works For A Living Should Have Basic Promises Of The Essentials, A Fair Wage, Equal Pay, The Right To Organize, Healthcare, & A Quality Of Life That They, That WE Deserve...

Lets Make 2017 A Year That DU Grows Legs & Leads A Movement To Oppose The Trump Administration & Republicans At Every Turn, Every Time, Just Like They Did To Our President & Our Party...

YES WE CAN DU!

I'm Doing Fairly Well, Hoping The 2016 DNC Will Be Held In Columbus...

Yes being at that event was one of the highlights of my young life... & boy President Clinton brought down the house with his speech & really reminded me of why I am & why I became A Democrat...

I was also fortunate to get my picture taken with Hillary Clinton, which was odd bcuz she wasn't even publicly at the event & asked me to keep it to myself that she was there....

I Don't Endorse Any Candidate, But Putting Hillary's Name In The Headline Insinuates She Is Corrupt

And or is the sole reason there's any investigation to begin with & it was brought on by Hillary Clinton because she is running for President & Is simply doing this to discredit Governor Christie who is just as well considered GOP's frontrunner for President...Which I believe we can agree that this is simply not the case, the investigation was brought forth by A group that has supported a number of Democrats and Democratic causes & issues....

BTW I have thick skin & why do you find it necessary to question my character, When we are both Democrats?

How about we make it the goal of the members of this site to start showing respect to each other even if we disagree?
