Working for Change

by: Matt Glazer

Thu Aug 09, 2007 at 10:45 AM CDT

We are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Republicans have seized control of every branch of state government. Slick Rick Perry slithered into the Governor's Mansion again with the support of a pitiful 39% of Texas voters. A gerrymandered redistricting map created an overwhelming Republican majority in the Texas Senate, where corrupt right-wingers with multi-million dollar campaign accounts force voter suppression laws down our throats by day, and live high on the lobby-funded hog by night. The Texas House has a Republican Speaker who has declared himself an "auto-Craddick" dictator, the first time any presiding officer of a democratically elected body has ever had the nerve to make such an absolutely ludicrous claim.

We are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  We're going to actually do something to enact change.  

We are ready to do more than complain about the Republican era of corruption and cronyism, we are going to end it! We are prepared to elect a Democratic majority to the Texas House of Representatives, and forever put an end to the Tom Craddick reign of "absolute" power.

We are proud to announce that we have joined forces to create a vehicle for change; the TexBlog PAC.   The PAC is a diverse and organic organization working to rebuild the Democratic Party and win a majority in the state House.

Matt Glazer :: Working for Change
If you are tired of Tom "absolute power" Craddick, and want to help elect a Democratic Speaker in 2008, please make a contribution today.  The stakes could not be higher. 

During the 2008 election cycle, the TexBlog PAC is committed to changing the direction of Texas politics by taking back the Texas House. The TexBlog PAC will work toward winning 7 additional seats in the Texas House, allowing Democrats to elect a Democratic Speaker.
A net gain of 7 house seats will put an end to the Republican claim of "absolute" power and restore democracy and the democratic process to the people's House.

If you are ready to take back your state, and take back the Texas House, we encourage you to donate today. 

By contributing to progressive candidates, fostering the energy of the netroots, supporting party infrastructure, registering new voters, funding civic education programs, and assisting like-minded grassroots activists, the TexBlog PAC will help elect progressive candidates in 2008, and beyond. We will pave the path to a brighter tomorrow by putting Democrats back in charge of our state government.

The more you contribute, the more we can help.

Under the era of corrupt, one-party Republican rule, the past half-decade has been an absolute disaster for Texas and Texas families. The bottom line: uninsured kids, public school children, college students, current teachers, retired teachers, seniors, workers, homeowners, small business owners, conservationists and veterans simply can't afford another two years of "absolute" Republican corruption, cronyism, and cuts.

With your help, the TexBlog PAC will create meaningful and long-lasting change in Texas politics.  Are you ready to help?

  Show everyone that Texas is NOT a "red state".  It is purple - and twisted to turn out Republicans by design.

Christian Liberal is NOT an oxymoron.

Sorry, guys.....bad idea! (0.00 / 0)
I urge you to stick to what you do best.....which is not fundraising for a PAC.  You're not thinking this one through. 

Thanks (0.00 / 0)
We appreciate the word advice and look forward to proving you wrong.  It is time to take our state back, and the only way we can do that is to defeat Republicans in the general election.

If you are tired of the status quo, there is something you can do.  We are absolutely ready for a Democratic majority.
