Wake up, America. In 2001, the oil companies, the

war contractors and the neo-con artists seized the economy and

have added 4 trillion dollars of unproductive spending to the

national debt. We now pay four times more for defense, three

times more for gasoline and home heating oil and twice what we

paid for health care.

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, their homes, their

health care, their pensions. Trillions of dollars for an

unnecessary war paid with borrowed money. Tens of billions of

dollars in cash and weapons disappeared into thin air, at the cost

of the lives of our troops and innocent Iraqis, while all the

president’s oilmen are maneuvering to grab Iraq’s oil.

If there was an Olympics for misleading, mismanaging and

misappropriating, this administration would take the gold. World

records for violations of national and international laws. They

want another four-year term to continue to alienate our allies,

spend our children’s inheritance and hollow out our economy.

We can’t afford another Republican administration. Wake up,

America. The insurance companies took over health care. Wake

up, America. The pharmaceutical companies took over drug

pricing.


Wake up, America. This is not a call for you to take a new

direction from right to left. This is call for you to go from down

to up. Up with the rights of workers. Up with wages. Up with fair

trade. Up with creating millions of good paying jobs, rebuilding

our bridges, ports and water systems. Up with creating millions

of sustainable energy jobs to lower the cost of energy, lower

carbon emissions and protect the environment.

Up with health care for all. Up with education for all. Up with

home ownership. Up with guaranteed retirement benefits. Up

with peace.


Wake up, America. Wake up, America. Wake up, America.
