VOTE AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT
On Monday, October 29, 2012, we will be honored to be in the presence of true heroes--four survivors of the March 7, 1965, March from Selma to Montgomery--which is known as "BLOODY SUNDAY"! That date in history is indelibly etched on my brain. Those people risked their lives on the Edmund Pettus Bridge to guarantee our right to vote. Nobody understands voter suppression better than these people. The survivors who will be visiting us all live in California but are traveling throughout the country to increase awareness of the shameful and craven attempt of voter intimidation and suppression by several organizations.
After the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement, it is unbelievable that in my own lifetime that I would see the emergence of a group of people who cannot tolerate the thought of having a President who is bi-racial and will try "every means necessary" to ensure his defeat. Since spending billions of dollars hasn't worked and they cannot defeat the President honestly, they are now planning to employ the tactics of voter intimidation. If the Tea Baggers and others of their ilk try to intimidate voters from executing their Constitutional RIGHT to vote, there will be others ready to confront those enemies of FREEDOM!
Let us--once again--vote as if our lives depend on it!
Please come to meet these genuine heroes:
