Kentucky Democratic Call To Arms Tuesday, November 15, 2005

State party chair Jerry Lundergan sent out the call to arms today. In a press release today he fired the first shots for the coming elections. With Mike Weaver's announcement, this begins the war. While Democrats certainly aren't perfect, the Republicans need to be knocked down a few notches. The extreme right wing has been in power too long. Things need to come back toward the middle.



The Kentucky Democratic Party

Fellow Democrats.

In just 17 days Democrats from across the Commonwealth will come together to begin to rally for the effort to elect competent, respectable and honest leadership to our government at every level. We are honored to have as our special guest United States Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Judging from the out cry from the Republicans, we know we have found the correct key by securing Senator Clinton’s appearance.

We need and invite your support.

As an example, we Democrats are anxious to correct the mistake of an opportunist State Representative from Christian County, who after accepting substancial direct financial assistance from our Party to win an election, switched his party registration. Now a Republican, you can play a role in holding him accountable and help run Rep. Carr in the ditch. Furthermore, Kentucky Democrats will not allow this arrogant State Senate President to leave the good people in their Louisville senate district unrepresented for more than a year without a final remedy. Kentucky Democrats will not allow the corruption, waste, fraud and abuse brought by Ernie Fletcher and Steve Pence to go unchecked. We fully support State Auditor Crit Luallen and Attorney General Greg Stumbo’s efforts to up hold their constitutional responsibilities to uncover the Fletcher Pence wrong doings. We will not allow them to hide behind the smoke screens of pardons and finger pointing spin.

President Bush and his radical allies in Washington have squandered opportunity and disgraced the United States. Kentucky Democrats will not allow Republicans to misrepresent Kentucky Families anymore by under funding post-secondary education, cutting health care benefits for state employees and our children’s teachers, and continuing their corruption within the Governor’s office without repercussion. Democrats are preparing to put an end these untruthful, cowardly and disrespectable acts.

Help us defeat the corrupt Republicans who misrepresent you.

As an organization, the Kentucky Democratic Party is committed to finding a way to return Kentucky to the sensible and responsible leadership that focuses on the core values that made the Commonwealth what it is today. It is time for Kentucky’s elected officials to focus on the issues that matter most to Kentuckians and affect their everyday lives. We are committed to finding and supporting Democratic candidates in Kentucky who will put Kentucky’s future ahead of partisan politics. It is our obligation and pledge to Kentucky citizens to find leaders who will work for them!

We cannot succeed without your help.

Don’t miss your opportunity to meet the Honorable Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton! Seating is very limited and seating will be sold on a first come first serve basis. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS NOW!

If you have any questions or need assistance, please call 502-695-4828 and ask for Jamie Emmons, Kate Wood or the staff at our KDP offices.

Thank you for your support,

Jerry Lundergan, State Chairman

The Kentucky Democratic Party

P.S. We would appreciate your passing this message along to a friend...

Is this the same $500 plae dinner that we've discussed before? If so, we know that those 'deciding' the future of the 'Democratic Party' will not be the main stream working class, that is the Democratic patties cire, but the lobbiest & plutocrats, who are buying their way into a place of influence.

Do we have to create a new party to get government back to "By the People, For the People'?

Cynicus, still have openings in the Whig party? I'm about ready to abondon a stinking ship.

Yeah... this is the same, but in order to raise money, this is the type of thing it takes. As Cynicus has so often pointed out, patronage is part of the system, whether we like it or not.

Patronage is a $10.00 plate..
For the price they ask, I used to be able to buy a state legislator!

Fine, do the $500 plate. The people paying that amount aren't likely to believe that Hillary isn't what we want anyhow. They have created a nice Money-based Force-Field to hold the majority of the party at bay. Sorta like the the signs at an Amusing park.
"You must be this Rich to be listened too..."

What do I want... I want to see Chandler at a $5 Hotdog/Ice-cream social at the county fair ground! Pay $5, come in eat hotdogs, eat Ice-Cream, express yourself.

Hell! offer Microphone time to be heard. $5 for a minute, no more than 5 minutes tops. I'd pay $10 for Hotdogs and a chance to publicly rant!. I've paid more for an internet site that would get less attention!

I like the idea enough to wish I could afford time from work & up-front cost to do it! At one time, a position as congress Critter was meant as a position for retired men of a concerned nature. Today it's a means for the rich to further their own wealth.

Said before, I'll say again.. Thank Goodness for the Internet. The last bastion of free speach and public opion!
