Candidate Charles Sanders, running for the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. House in the 3rd District of Ohio, understands the language of true change. No ambiguous statements, no pandering to political powers-that-be, but a true grassroots, working class civil servant that comprehends what is at stake in our country if we fail to ebb the flood of deceit that pours out of today's politicians in Washington D.C.!
Sanders says what needs to be vitriolically said, and leaves no room for apologies. In plainspoken, clear terms, Sanders defines the rules of engagement to the opposition that currently drives our country further into debt, deprives us of basic civil liberties, and plunged our nation into an immoral and baseless war.
Treading into deep, turbulent waters, Mr. Sanders has braved the rough seas -- that only anti-war champion Ned Lamont of Connecticut has taken on so far -- to save our country from drowning in false fear, apathy and a mistakenly euphemistic outlook.
Courageous and intrepid, Charles Sanders goes where few seeking office are willing to go straight at the heart of the matter -- the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney! Unyielding, he then tackles the malignancies that eat away at our once great nation from the eradicating of political corruption, to health care for every American, to bringing the troops home from Iraq, to rolling back the massive trust-fund tax breaks shamelessly passed during the preceding five years. Throw in a hard-hitting battle for rescinding greedy eminent domain laws and keeping the Internet Neutrality rules in place and Sanders is every neoconservative's worst nightmare and every progressive's preeminent dream!
As suggested in the past, endorsement of candidates should be done one at a time and based on merit. Candidates should not receive blanket endorsements by-proxy the itinerary of the DCCC or the DSCC merely by claims of being Democratic. The candidate must demonstrate not only their grasp of the issues we face and the words to express them, but must reveal the actions they will undertake to accomplish the goals of a true progressive messenger of the people. I submit that Charles Sanders is the "real deal" and worthy of a vote on September 15 in Ohio's special primary election and again on November 7 in the general election!
