2006 - 2008 Campaign Suggestions For Democrat Challengers

Here’s a summary of some of the suggestions from Bryan Nelson at the TPM Café 2006 Elections Table.

  1. Health Care is a Right and Not a Commodity – We should capitalize on the growing disillusionment of the populace regarding the growing health care crisis. The part of corporate America that is not in control of health care should join the effort.
    Nobody Left Behind - This could better wages/increased job security, gay rights, women’s sovereignty, educational opportunities, etc.
  2. Protecting God's Planet – True Christians know that everyone has an obligation to protect their Creator's planet. It is more important than some of their other 'moral imperatives' they use to justify votes for the Republicans.
  3. Enhancing our Security by Protecting our Freedoms – We should equate constitutionally protected freedoms to our security as a nation. The Republicans have used the terrorists to get at some of the liberties they hate. Democrats should reverse this propaganda with strong counter argument.

Illinois has Democrat challengers. The ones that have already announced are listed in the sidebar. They need your support!

Great comment, good points. But democrats have to live up to those values. (Bean was a BIG disappoint with her CAFTA vote.) They have to VOTE their values. I'm afraid with big corporations buying our government officials - and everything else on the planet - we are going to need a third party to stand up to these Goliaths. If campaign finance laws, and lobby laws, would get changed and reformed, then maybe those of us who hold progressive values would not feel we have to re-invent the wheel.

As to public health care, there are two important issues.

Who provides and what is covered.

What are your thoughts on this?
