This is a message from Kaili Lambe to Democracy for America Members: Dear DFA Fan- If the contrast between Clint Eastwood and Bill Clinton weren't enough to illustrate the difference between Republicans and Democrats this year, consider this: over the past two years, Republican priorities have been driven largely by egomaniacs whose only agenda is to thwart President Obama. It's a classic contest of good vs. evil -- the good guys (and gals) have been fighting for progress -- for affordable healthcare, for equality, for civil liberty, for jobs and for environmental protection. They've been struggling to protect everyday Americans from becoming victims of corporate greed. But their nemeses, Congressional Republicans, have done everything they can to hijack legislative priorities. Instead of fixing our economy and creating good jobs they've focused on limiting women's reproductive choices, taking away affordable healthcare from folks with pre-existing conditions or lifetime caps, letting oil companies run rampant with little to no oversight, and restricting our civil liberties. That's what this election is about -- making things better for the 99% or making things harder for us. The heroes are standing up for us and the villains are standing up for Corporations and Wall Street. We can't let the bad guys win. We want to hear from you -- who are your Congressional heroes? Who are the worst of the worst -- the villains of the House and Senate? We're doing everything we can to win back the House and our last endorsements of this cycle will go to the Democrats you decide are real progressive champions. The leaders who can affect real change in the next Congress -- because far too much is at stake. The House Hero and Senate Super-Star you select will receive our final federal endorsements of 2012. We'll bring organizing tools and action summits to help you fight against these GOP super-villains. So who are your Heroes and Villains? Vote now. For the next 52 days we must show the contrast between Democrats and Republicans so voters understand just what's at stake in this election. It's up to you to decide which progressive heroes and which villains make that contrast crystal clear. Don't let the bad guys win. -Kaili Kaili Lambe, Political Campaign Manager Democracy for America
