John Edwards 2004

has anyone else been thoroughly let-down by Edwards?

What the hell happened to him? He used to have some kind of voice of reason in defense of the working class, but now it just seems like a stage script with no passion in the acting. He got wayyy too cocky near the end of the election, and now he's become a total pushover. What a crock!

Makes me cringe every time I see his name in the news, thinking that I actually voted for that guy - twice!

Change the world [Feb. 11th, 2005|05:36 pm]
John Edwards 2004

Help Change the World/"Pass it On"
Hi, my name is Joshua Brown. After reflecting on the past election and what is already going on since President George W. Bush has begun his second term, I have decided that it is time to do something and we cannot allow the world to continue in the current path of corruption and what may lead to destruction.

President Bush is proposing to cut all the programs that help the kids who most need help. Including cutting 100% of Upward Bound and the TRIO programs funding and cutting 50% of the funding for Safe and Drug Free school programs! While keeping all of his tax cuts. Why don't Americans understand that they need to pay taxes so the government can work.

Paying taxes so that those who need help can get it should be considered a Moral Issue. Helping people out of poverty should be considered a moral issue. Funding our schools and school programs to help all students in the next generation to succeed not just those who are lucky and are born into the right family should be a moral issue.

Why isn't it? Because our country is run by corporate greedy men and women who don't care about the average person, they only care about doing what it takes to make other people look bad, win elections (or steal them, they don't care as long as they end up in office) and then use their office to help their friends instead of the American people who really need the help.

I am not saying that all republicans are evil or that all democrats are good, I am just saying that President Bush and those in office are doing an injustice to America's children, America's poor, America's needy, America's teachers, America's parents, America's grandparents, and America's workers.

Something needs to be done to make sure that President Bush gets very little of what he wants, because it is not good for America. Something also needs to be done to change the mind set of the American public. Why is it that the issues that concern people the most are if gays should get married or if a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion.

These issues do not cause children to go without healthcare insurance, these issues do not keep students from having the chance to be successful, these issues do not make people be unable to pay for their prescription drugs, these issues do not cause people to go homeless or starve.

If you want to know what Jesus would do, read the Bible. The moral issues he dealt with in his life were the greed of government and of people, that it is our moral responsibility to help the poor, to help the sick, to help the children who cannot take care of themselves.

Let's stop spending so much of our precious time on earth with issues that Americans will never agree on and actually do something about the moral issues in America that we can do something about. We need to work to end poverty, to help every child be covered with adequate healthcare, help every child have the opportunity for success with access to good teachers, before and after school programs, Upward Bound, lets work to keep our children drug free, lets work together to get every person in America the food, clothes, and housing they need in order to have self-confidence needed to get a job and take care of themselves and their family, lets go back to taking care of our parents and grandparents when they get older instead of pushing them into nursing homes and talking to them once a week or once a month or a few times a year, and lets do something to stop the violence in our homes, schools, neighborhoods, country, and the world.

This can actually be done if we would work together and get the power of the government on our side not against all the interest of those who make America great. I believe that with Gods help and with the will to change our world we can fight the evils that try to keep things the way they are. Government is not evil, politics are not evil, but Americans are allowing both to be used for evil.

Please work toward doing something to change the direction we are going in. First look at yourself and change your own actions, then talk to your friends and family and help change their actions and tell them to do the same. If anyone remembers the movie "Pass it on" lets actually try this. You can copy and post my rant on message boards, send emails to your friends, print it and put it on bulletin boards. Another thing you can do is contact both your state and federal congressmen, your governor, the president, anyone public official with an email address and tell them that you want to them to support legislation, to fully fund programs which actually do help those who need help.

One example of this is to email, call, or write a letter to your US Senator, US Representative, and the President to at least put the funding back in place to keep programs like Upward Bound, Safe and Drug Free school, and other valuable programs that help the next generation stay out of trouble, gain self-confidence, and learn that they can succeed and be a valuable member of our world. You will not only change the students who are affected by these programs but in a small way we will be working to change the direction of this country and the world.

We have to do something and together I believe we can make the world a better place for all of us. I am begging you to help and and join me in a fight to change the world.

A letter from John and TV apperance [Feb. 5th, 2005|09:30 am]
John Edwards 2004

John Edwards Returns To New Hampshire!

On Saturday, February 5, John Edwards is returning to New Hampshire to speak at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual 100 Club Dinner. His speech will begin around 8 pm, and C-SPAN will be airing his speech LIVE. Check your local listings for more information and tune in!

Dear Friend,

First of all, a belated happy New Year to everyone! The year has already gotten off to a busy start so I wanted to let you know how Elizabeth is doing and tell you about an important new mission that I am beginning.

Most importantly, Elizabeth is doing incredibly well. She is almost finished with her chemotherapy treatment, and her doctors are extremely encouraged by how well it is going. Throughout this entire process, she has been as strong as she was the day I first met her, and there is no doubt in my mind that she will beat this cancer. You must know that we draw tremendous strength and courage from all the support you have given us during this trying time, and we thank you for it. We are so fortunate to have friends like you and we will never forget all that you have done to help us through this.

As you may know, our family is planning on moving back to North Carolina after Emma Claire and Jack finish the school year. North Carolina is our home, we want our kids to grow up there, and we are very excited about going back.

North Carolina will also be playing a significant role in what I do next. The University of North Carolina has been a big part of my life because it's where I learned the tools I've used all my life to help the people who needed help the most.

I am very proud to say that I will be joining UNC to launch its new Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity, which will examine innovative and practical ideas for moving more Americans out of poverty and into the middle class. The fact that millions in this country go to work every day and still live in poverty is wrong and unacceptable. This is personal to me, and I believe that it is one of the most important moral issues of our time.

Together with UNC, I will work hands-on to explore creative approaches to the difficulties that families in poverty face every day. We may not have all the answers right now, but I can promise you this: we will be asking the hard questions. We will work tirelessly so that America's bright light of opportunity shines on all of us.

As I begin this process, I'm going to once again be asking you for your help.

What ideas do you have to reduce poverty in our country? What is working in your community and what can we as a nation be doing better? Once we get the Center up and running, we'll be asking for your input. This is too important an issue for us to be sitting on the sidelines - we need everybody's ideas.

It is my intention not just to talk about solutions but to work across the country to test ideas and promote successful strategies. I hope you and I will have the opportunity to work together again to restore the promise of America in our workplaces and dignity in the lives of Americans who just want a chance to earn a decent living for themselves and their family. I grew up with these people, and their cause will always be my cause. I hope you share both my commitment and enthusiasm for this exciting venture.

Again, we are so grateful for all of your support through the years, and I'm looking forward to working with you hand-in-hand in the future. Thank you for everything.


John Edwards

Attention John Edwards fans/supporters:

I have the domain jre08.com. I am interested in starting a website where we can share ideas and thoughts on America, the World, politics and John Edwards. It would also function of course as a John Edwards fan site. I'm looking for people, especially web designers to help with the project. Please email me at gabew@walla.com if you want to get involved.
