More Help From Democrats for US Small Businesses!

It was a good start to the week for American small businesses - the engine for job creation in America! 

Democrats passed a key piece of legislation - with very little help from Republicans. It's official - no one can take the Republicans and their new "Pledge to America" seriously when they continue to be the Party of "No" in Congress.

P.S. -- Have questions about the bill? This Wednesday, September 29th, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the White House and OPEN Forum are holding a live Q&A on the impact of this and similar legislation on small businesses. Tune in Wednesday at this link:

Obama Will Triumph -- So Will America

By Frank Schaeffer

Before he'd served even one year President Obama lost the support of the easily distracted left and engendered the white hot rage of the hate-filled right. But some of us, from all walks of life and ideological backgrounds -- including this white, straight, 57-year-old, former religious right wing agitator, now progressive writer and (given my background as the son of a famous evangelical leader) this unlikely Obama supporter -- are sticking with our President.

Why?-- because he is succeeding.

Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) Stopped in the Senate

If unhappy LGBT Democrats and others what a shot at repealing DADT in the next Congress - everyone better vote a full Democratic ballot on November 2.  If Democrats loose their 59 seat advantage in the US Senate, it will be nearly impossible to see how DADT will ever be passed. 

Click here for the full story on DADT in DiversityInc on-line.

So many other critical gains are also at stake if Democrats loose this Fall.  So, don't let it happen! I believe Democrats in Congress have learned their lesson - play well together or loose all together!  Let's give them one last chance to redeem themselves.  I think they're ready to do the people's business as we the people want it done.  And, only Democratic representatives in Congress can be counted on to deliver on Democratic goals.  Certainly not Republicans.

Al Gore Supports Kendrick Meek - And So Should Florida!

Former Vice President and environmentalist, Al Gore, supports Kendrick Meek's bid to become the next Senator from Florida.  He's among many national, state-wide and local leaders to endorse Meek.
Now all we need is for Florida voters, Democrats, and others to do the same.  He's the best candidate for the job.

Fired Up - Ready to WIN!

Here's what the Vice President had to say recently:

Florida has had its share of close elections, but this Senate race really ought to be a landslide. And it would be if people just look hard at the facts.

Kendrick Meek is the only one in this race who has consistently opposed offshore drilling. He is the only one who will ensure that we all have quality health care, and the only one who will focus on helping working Americans, rather than wealthy corporations.

What Does $9 Billion in Stimulus Money Get Florida?

Who says this President and his Administration has done nothing to help Florida during this economic slump?

ANSWER: Only the disingenuous and uninformed.

According to government records, since February 2009, Florida has been awarded $9.4 billion dollars.  $3.3 billion has been received.  Jobs reported by recipients totals 40,604.  If you want to see more details on the projects - even those in your neighborhood - click here.

If you want to know more about the plans to secure and spend the $6.1 billion not yet received; contact the Republican Governor and Republican Leadership in Tallahassee for answers.  Can you imagine all economic good and budget stretching this funding buys Florida?  ANSWER: Lots!

Yes, Democrats in Washington spend - but $9.4 billion of that spending is invested in Florida schools, roads, public service, public servants and more.  While the Republican Governor and Republican Leadership in Tallahassee were struggling over how to cut services to the citizens while preserving wealth for the rich, Democrats in Washington - helped by Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown and Congressman Kendrick Meek - were assisting President Obama fashion a stimulus bill to bail-out Florida.

So, who deserves your vote this November?  ANSWER: Democrats - right!

News Anchors Must Be Honest Brokers of Facts

News anchors must do a better job in brokering facts.  If not, the American public can be easily mislead on the facts behind critical and sensitive issues facing our nation.  A misinformed public is a misinformed electorate and we can't afford to have a misinformed public going into the Fall 2010 election cycle.

For Democrats, we must recognize the broad-based accomplishments of this Administration,  From an historic effort to stop the economic hemoriging; passing responsible health care and financial reforms; extracting troops from Iraq and restarting face-to-face peace talks on the Middle East; much has been done - but much to do. At bottom, albeit slow and not perfect, we are moving in the right direction.  And most was accomplished WITHOUT REPUBLICAN SUPPORT. 

Don't let the Republican Party of NO increase their strength in the US Congress or maintain control in the State of Florida.  Vote the ENTIRE Democratic ballot in November.

Democrats Must Stay Focused on Party Candidates to Win In November

Florida Democrats - and Democrats elsewhere - must not find excuses to vote outside the Party in the Fall 2010 elections.  To do so is a sure formula to lose in November. 

If Democrats vote in Florida elections....Democrats can win!!
