Ignore the polls. Ignore the pundits. JUST GO VOTE!

Let’s face it: Polls mean nothing. Pundits are just noise. What does Faux News have to say about the elections? Who’s ahead? Who’s behind? WHO CARES!

The truth? No one is ahead or behind until people actually get out and VOTE.

Voting is the best way to defend the progress made over the last two years. Voting is an act of defiance against those who would seek to trample your rights in favor of a narrow set of values you may not share. Voting is the best way to defend the values we share, such as:

  • Promoting individual responsibility by creating jobs at home.
  • Promoting mutual responsibility by maintaining a reasonable safety net.
  • Ensuring equality of opportunity, and access to quality education for all.
  • Building tolerance for differing beliefs.
  • Protecting our environment while encouraging its responsible use.
  • Preserving Constitutional rights.
  • Working for peace, and looking forward with hope instead of fear.

These are not “conservative” values or “liberal” values. These are American values, born from the deepest roots of our American history and the highest ideals of our Democracy, defended today by the Democratic Party, and by voters like you.

Join us in defending American values. Vote Democratic this November 2!
