Choose a Democrat

Do you no longer support the Constitution of the United States? Do you want to give away the rights so many have died to preserve? Do you want more of our brave soldiers to die for the ideology of a few highly placed government officials allied with multinational corporations? Do you want endless budget deficits, higher pollution levels in our water, air and food supply? Do you want to see billions of dollars given to the wealthiest 1 percent of taxpayers while your social security and medicare programs wither, and funds supporting veterans are cut? Do you want to see an endless war being fought in your name - a war that shields us from the deaths of 400-plus Americans and many thousands of Iraqis? Do you want to see billions of dollars going to prosecute an ideological war that ends up enriching friends and contributors to the current administration?

Wake up, America, before it is too late. Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9-11. Iraq has no weapons of mass destruction. George Bush was specifically warned of the impending attacks using aircraft, and went on a monthlong vacation after just seven months on the job. President Bush has more of the same in store for 2004. As we have in the last three presidential elections, elect a Democrat. Your freedom and life depend upon you making this your priority.
