Romney and Republicans Unpatriotically Put Their Own Narrow Political Interests Ahead of the Good of America

From lying about the highly successful auto industry loan and restructuring to trying desperately to re-create the poll tax and other elements of racial injustice to trying desperately to disenfranchise anyone radical rightwing Republicans think might vote Democratic to playing politics with the crisis of Sandy, Mitt Romney, his party, and his surrogates have shown all of us how far they will go to grab political power against the interests of America and her people.

I truly fear the establishment of a non-democratic, rightwing oligarchy if Romney wins on Tuesday.  Only a robust and activated people can prevent that on Tuesday.

We have used this space since last spring to warn that this election turn on turnout. We only have 5 days to re-elect President Obama, a Democratic Senate, and elect a Democratic House Representatives.

If you are reading this, voting is not enough. We NEED YOU STRONGLY ENGAGED IN VOTER TURNOUT WORK.
