Contribute Now to Rubicon: Crossing Back to Sanity

by Robert Silvey


George Bush has crossed the Rubicon. We must cross back—toward sanity, toward the rule of law—and we can do it by taking control of Congress on November 7.

You can help. Volunteer to work with your local Democratic candidate and contribute to Democratic candidates around the country, so we can begin to move America in the right direction again.

There's more information about the 2006 elections on the Rubicon website, with a report on our prospects for a Democratic Congress here.

These are a few candidates I'm supporting. Please give generously!

Jerry McNerney's race against the corrupt Richard Pombo is especially crucial for protecting the environment. McNerney is an environmental engineer who builds wind turbines. Pombo wants to sell 15 national parks. You can find more information about Jerry here.

Tammy Duckworth lost her legs while piloting a helicopter in Iraq. She is now running against Tom DeLay's man, Peter Roskam, to get us all out of Iraq. You can find more information about Tammy here.

Joe Courtney's campaign slogan is "Change your country, right here at home." It's a good slogan for all Democrats. He's running to replace Rob Simmons, who supports Bush on the Iraq debacle and on regressive taxation. You can find more information about Joe here.

As New Mexico's attorney general, Patricia Madrid has worked to preserve the rights of the people. As Albuquerque's congresswoman, Heather Wilson has worked to preserve the powers of George Bush, particularly his power to eavesdrop on you illegally. Madrid is a better choice. You can find more information about Patricia here.

Claire McCaskill


In 2004, I worked in Missouri to elect Claire McCaskill governor. We didn't quite win, but this year she's come back as an excellent candidate for the Senate. Here's her platform:

This election is critical for Missouri and our country. Washington DC is spiraling out of control. Moneyed interests outweigh the will of the people. A war is being fought without a strategy to win—or keep us safe. And billions of dollars are being added every day to a deficit our children will have to pay. It's time for a Senator on our side.

Please support Claire to replace the untalented (and dangerous) Jim Talent. Send her a contribution now.
