1. No. I had myself removed from the e-mail lists.
I may hold my nose and vote for him but there will be no money, and for the first time since I can remember, no volunteering.

We All Have a Choice in the 2012 Election
<>
I respectfully suggest that some of the questions we should all ask ourselves, especially those who havent already done so, are as follows:

How will you feel when the new President nominates partisan cabinet members like Phil Gramm for Treasury, Jeb Bush for the Justice Department, John Kasich for the Office of Management and Budget, Scott Walker for Labor Secretary, Paul Ryan for Health and Human Services, Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State, John McCain as Secretary of Defense, and Newt Gingrich as UN Ambassador? Sure, it may not be those particular ideologues in those exact positions; in fact, it could be worse still. Keep that in mind.

How will you feel when the new President gets a chance to replace Justice Kennedy, or worse yet, Justices Breyer and Ginsberg? What about all of the other judicial nominees that the new President will get to choose?
<>
As importantly, how will you feel that you didnt do everything possible to assist in the 2012 re-election campaign because you rationalized that there was nothing good you could say about President Barack Obama, or you conveniently convinced yourself that someone else would handle your share (or so you assumed)? How will you justify protest then, or even be angry knowing that you always had a choice and yet you chose to do less than you could do?

Will you be glad you stuck to your principles, or appalled at the avalanche of radical changes proposed by the new administration? And what will you do about it at that time, that couldnt have been done before?

5. That is the behavior that allows our representatives to stray from
representing us.

Now, not only do we have Guantanamo, spike in war, extension of Bush Tax Cuts for the rich, weakened clean air regulations, sand oils pipeline, escalation of wars across the globe, but those are now considered Democratic Policies because they have been adopted by this Whitehouse in our name.

We get much the same policies but the rightwingers can take cover in the shadow of a Democratic whitehouse that uses its base as a punch line.

6. If you had an ounce of intergrity, you would tell the truth, instead of a small portion,

but you won't.

Guantanamo - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110731055...

spike in war which is the same as escalation of wars across the globe - http://www.army.mil/article/53418/Army_tells_Congress_I... /
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43471826/ns/world_news-sout... /


extension of Bush Tax Cuts for the rich - http://www.dailyfinance.com/2010/12/09/why-one-liberal-... /

weakened clean air regulations - http://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/USEOPWHPO/20...


sand oils pipeline - I agree with you on this one. Outrageous! But not enough for me to withdraw my support for this President, although I wrote him a letter about why he shouldn't support this.
