We just heard President Obama’s State of the Union message, highlighting issues that are important to us: a livable minimum wage, immigration reform, continued progress on the Affordable Care Act, diplomacy over war, equal pay, extending unemployment benefits, jobs, voting rights and much more. The President is doing what he can through executive orders, but we know that this Republican House will not allow movement on a wide range of these vital issues that are affecting lives every day.
Now is the time to take action to make this agenda possible! In 2014 we must elect more Democrats to gain a majority of the House. Despite the odds, with a lot of work – and prayer – it is possible. We are ready to make a major impact on the mid-terms this year, and here is the first step to do it. The way we move forward to make a difference this year is through the best grassroots medium we have available to us – social media.
Please email us or fill out our volunteer form to express interest in being part of our Facebook initiative, and please also consider becoming a CDA member. Most of all, pray with us that this will indeed be a “year of action” as President Obama has lined up!
“No family working full time should have to raise a child in poverty”
“For the sake of our national security, we must give diplomacy a chance to succeed”
“There are people who get up every morning praying they don’t get sick….no one should have to live that way”
“Let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that is already helping millions of Americans!”
“Women deserve equal pay for equal work”
“Let’s CLOSE the prison at Guantanamo Bay”
NO! Think carefully to what you are saying… I will be really honest. I felt a real disconnect last night. I looked way down deep inside and asked myself: “Is this how liberty falls… with the thunderous applause of a democratic society ordering itself pay raises from the coffers and ignoring the fundamental system of the republic for which it stood?” That’s right…. “stood.” There may be no way be back from this dangerous path chosen by this man. Ignoring fundamental constitutional guidelines, systems and penned rights built to prevent this very tragedy?” I feel empty inside. If feel the LAST THREE administrations (both republican and democrat) have sold us and what this country really stands for down the river for the next 10 generations to “try” to fix in return for power, control and dependency. I do not mean to be disrespectful to the office, but I must shout out loud that WE ARE IN DANGER! Please do not be so short-sided as to not understand the true meaning of Tyranny (please look it up). The quotation below sums up my sincere feelings about the dangerous path we are on. And I pray the esteemed audience here that I respect and love so much will understand the danger we are in for short-term power grabs that are and will destroy us. I am sad we are so blind as to cheer our own demise in the name of social change towards agendas and our apathy (as the water temperature is turned from warm to boiling) that will bind us into generations of captivity and rank dependency! If we go much further we will become that which our for-fathers despised. I am not desirous to go willingly without a voice! God bless, and may God bless what is left our our republic!
