Hello Esteemed Friends,
Want you to know I've just made my first cash donation ever to the Obama Campaign to the "Homeward Stretch" Victory Fund to RE-Elect Our President Barack Obama -- & Our First
Lady Michelle Obama. Wanted to "put my money where my Mouth" has been -- in 2008 -- & Since. Have given much Time Thus Far (& in 2008 as well), but have not contributed cash-wise--until NOW.
Wanted to show my appreciation & support because of receiving my first Social Security checks in September & October. I felt Very Grateful -- to the point I wanted to Give Back to My Government -- which is working for me to help protect S. S. & Medicare -- & Women's Rights, etc.
[Did not donate cash in 2008--instead spent months creating & maintaining the Art Exhibit in my front yard to "Obama & Equality & Peace On Earth" -- despite the ire of my Republican neighbors (as you particularly know, Olive). I have an Obama/Biden official sign in my front
yard --with a good-size pumpkin in front of it. My next-door neighbors, who are ardent Republicans & Rush Limbaugh fans have a Romney-Ryan sign in their front yard -- next to a Halloween exhibit that depicts Death. My pumpkin symbolizes the Bounty of the Earth -- & LIFE. If the Republicans got in, it would be VERY SCARY for WOMEN particularly -- and the Death of Freedom -- & Protecting Our Environment of Mother Earth -- as we know it now -- & in the future -- for millions of Americans -- & Other Humans & Various Life Forms the World Over.]
The lush flower & foliage garden around my Obama/Biden sign in my front yard symbolizes to me (& I hope passersby--in fact; I "may" put up a sign that states it clearly): "Growing the Economy from the GROUND Up -- & the Middle Out! -- (The "99%")" -- NOT the Top ("1 %") Down.
P. S. If you haven't donated yet to the Obama/Biden Re-Election Campaign, please do not delay any longer. The Republicans are $45 million ahead & plan to spend it on negative attack ads in "battleground states"--including our own State of Florida--which could again Decide the Election--as it did in 2000 -- when the Outcome was a Republican Steal. Let Us Make Sure it is DIFFERENT THIS TIME!
Your participation in these last 10 days can "tip the scales" for "American on the Move" with Barack Obama/Biden FORWARD!
