South King County Progressives Strategy Aug/26th

democracy-USE IT OR LOSE IT.
Well Hello there! August 5th five of us met (including David Spring and Brian Gunn who are running for the state legislature). We talked about what could be lost if these extreme right Republicans control the US Senate as well as the House. They would drasticly cut back on Social Security, gut Medicare and eliminate Medicad. They would close down the EPA which would put global warming on steriods. This could ruin the eco-system and may be the beginning of the end of the human species!?! The Paul Ryan draconian budget would also double the interest rate for student loans, give the ultra rich trillions in tax cuts on top of making the Bush tax cuts PERMINATE. Wait, there's more folks. By shifting the tax burden to the middle class and gutting the social safety net these right wing wackos will then give trillions more to the Pentagon ON TOP of their present budget. After this massive investment in the military do you think they will just stand around polishing their equipment? Mussolini didn't.

Have I got your attention yet? Are you a little interested and or worried, ready to jump in, help to save democracy in America and the eco-system???

Goodness gracious what are we to do? Well for starters you can come to the SKCP meeting on August 26th, 3-5pm at the Kent library. Also Google the location and time of your legislative district next meeting-- go and partipate--damit.

Also you can start concentric ripples by talking to your family and friends about being registered to vote and to vote for the democrativc party candidates.

Finally you can volunter and donate to David Spring (5th LD wwwspringforhouse.org) and Brian Gunn (31st LD www.peopleforBrianGunn.com)

PS-the biggest obstacle is not the right wing crazies-it's liberal apathy and cynacism.
