All Democratic Members of Congress Must ENDORSE Ned Lamont ACTION >>>>
Tell Our Democratic Officeholders To ONLY Support Ned Lamont

CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TOLL-FREE AT 888-355-3588 OR 800-828-0498

The greatest thing that could have happened did tonight, Ned Lamont beat Joe the "BUSH" Lieberman in Connecticut. The people of CT spoke out for real policy change. And now this nation sees there is a future for all Democrats and this nation in November. The fact: Americans are waking up. Support Ned Lamont and every Democrat you know.

When he first threatened to disregard the result of his own party's primary, Lieberman said that he could justify it because the turnout would be low. Instead there was record turnout in CT last night. But Joe still refuses to get it.

Worse yet, in his non-concession speech he essentially accused any Democrat who would not support him of being guilty of "petty partisanship". What exactly is running for the nomination of a particular party supposed to be if not partisan? What is the point of seeking a party's nomination if you will not honor the decision of your constituents?

Lieberman cannot now continue to run as an "independent Democrat", an unlawful construction of words which he repeated again. He can run as NO Democrat at all in CT in 2006. And now is finally the time for all Democratic office holders everywhere to declare that they will support ONLY the winner of the Democratic party primary in CT, Ned Lamont.

This alert is brought to you through the activism of James Wright, running for the U.S. House in the 8th Congressional district, and one of the leading progressive voices in the state of Texas. Follow the other links on the action page for Jim's own proposals of bills to REALLY protect us.

When a brave candidate steps forward in such a district as Texas 8th, shall we do anything to show him our support? If so, please also consider making a donation to Jim's campaign so he can spread the call to action message on impeachment, starting to bring our troops home from Iraq, and on so many other issues.

DONATIONS: http://www.usalone.com/wright/donations.php

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

If you would like to get alerts like these, you can do so at http://www.usalone.com/in.htm

Or if you want to cease receiving our messages, just use the function at http://www.usalone.com/out.htm

4. And when the media says that supporting Lamont means...
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 10:36 AM by TrueFunkSoldier
...that the Democratic party is FAR LEFT and out of touch with mainstream Americans...and are "cut-n-run," the Dems need to be running ads that state:

1. Most Americans--at least 60%--are against occupation in Iraq. Americans want a change!

2. Most Americans--over half--now believe that the war was not worth it. Americans want a change!

3. Most Americans, according to many polls, support the Democratic position on Iraq. Americans want a change!

4. More Americans believe that Dems would do a better job handling the so-called War on Terror than Repugs. Americans want a change!

5. Most Americans believe that Iraq has become a quamire and civil war is imminent. Americans want a change!

6. Innocent Iraqi's and our soldiers are in harms way, are being threatened, killed or maimed for life. Americans want a change!

7. Nearly 80% of Iraqis want Americans OUT OF IRAQ!! Americans want a change!

8. The Repug plan has created hatred and disdain for Americans across the world. Americans want a change!

9. The Repug "stay the course" mantra has caused unrest in the Middle East with a failed 'diplomacy' effort and little support for their version of a UN compromise. Americans want a change!

10. Under the Repug plan, Iran, N. Korea, Syria and other countries have become a gathering threat. They have either started or reconstituted their nuclear plans. Americans want a change!

Most important, though:

Under Bush and the Repugs, we have not avenged the deaths of over 3,000 Americans for the 911 catastrophe. Osama bin Laden is still out there. ( In fact, Bush 'just doesn't spend that much time on him'.) The Taliban has regrouped. And for every 2nd, 3rd or 4th al-Queada in command, there are hundreds more recruited. Americans want a change!

This administration's foreign policy has been a dismal failure! It's time for a change!!!
