“We Will Always Have This President’s Back” #GOTV

by Donna

Here is the email I sent out this morning to friends and family. Feel free to use this – it’s one small thing you can do to GOTV for this President. Even if it turns one person into a voter this year you will have made a great difference for 2014.

Voting Friend,

I’m reaching out to you today because in just a couple of weeks there is an important election taking place.

This November we supporters of President Barack Obama need to send a strong message to the Republican Party and the Mainstream Media that we continue and will always have this President’s back.

So much has been accomplished in the face of adversity.

This President walked into that White House in January 2009 with not just the weight of this country on his shoulders, but because we live in a global economy, he had the weight of the world on his shoulders.

The Republicans conspired that very night to be an obstacle to his every effort. Party before Country became their unspoken model. They proceeded to obstruct and filibuster every piece of legislation that would have a positive impact on you the voter. The goal was to make you cynical about government so that you would tune out. The media has virtually remained silent on this travesty.

Six years later, the President and Democrats’ efforts in Congress have brought us back from the brink of economic disaster, we have Health Care for all Americans, 55 straight months of private sector job growth lowering the unemployment rate to 5.9 percent and our manufacturing industry is booming. Yet the Republicans want you to believe that all is lost. They want you to think that state of our economy is awful.

Well we are better off now than we were when President Obama walked into the Oval Office due in no small part to him always putting your interests ahead of politics.

We have the President and the Democrats in Congress to thank for any progress we have made.

But just think how much further along we would be if the President had a Congress that was willing to work with him.

We could have comprehensive immigration reform, an infrastructure jobs bills putting millions of people to work, an increase in the minimum wage and climate change legislation that would make our environment safe for generations to come.

And this is just the short list.

I strongly urge you to go out and vote for Democrats this November.

I urge you to take your family and friends to the polls as well.

Don’t reward the Republicans’ bad behavior by conceding your vote to them.

Make them pay by showing up and voting them out.

Your Friend,

Donna
