I believe candidates with strong, sound stances deserve our support, and this is a race where your dollars can make the difference. Please make a contribution to this critical cause.
We need to support Ned Lamont because we have borne witness over the last six years to the remarkably negative effects that the Republican neoconservative agenda has had on our democracy at home, and our image abroad. Joe Lieberman has proven to be a rubber-stamp for the detrimental policies of the Bush administration; from the war in Iraq to budget-busting, fiscally irresponsible energy bills, Joe has been Bush's go-to man whenever the spectre of 'bipartisanship' is mustered. And what's worse, after losing his seat in the Democratic primary, Lieberman has refused to accept the mandate of our state's voters, and has initiated a 5th-party run under the guise of his own organization, 'Connecticut for Lieberman'. He now recieves millions in Republican contribution dollars and the benefit of their infamously below-the-belt campaign style.
Ned Lamont stands for an end to the Iraq nightmare, universal healthcare, protection of reproductive rights, fiscal responsibility, and a promise to actually VOTE on these important issues, as Sen Lieberman has been absent for over 400 Senate votes over the last 4 years. 'NV' (No Vote) is not acceptable for Connecticut; the failures of the Bush administration are not acceptable here either, or anyone who is corrupt enough to defend them.
Please, donate to and vote for Ned Lamont, Democrat for US Senate; it's time to take back Connecticut, and America.
