I am a semi-retired 64 year old psychotherapist. I am a Progressive and a Democrat. I admire FDR and Teddy Roosevelt. Despite my disappointment with the Democratic Party I find the far-Right Republicans to be much much worse. I deplore living in what has become a Corporatocracy, in which huge multinational companies make massive profits, pay little taxes and send American jobs overseas, looting and raping this country and its workers. Since the rise of Reaganism I have watched the rich and powerful beome richer and more powerful while they push the rest of Americans into a new and growing class--the Working Poor, who are increasingly losing their jobs and homes.
And now that America is nearly bankrupted by Corporate looting, tax cuts to the rich and costly endless wars, Americans are being told that they must sacrifice even more of their rapidly dwindling benefits, such as Medicare and Social Security. And I watch as too many of the rest of us remain silent and even continue to vote blindly against our own interests. So I am doing my small part by standing up and speaking out.

You are choosing a Party, not just a candidate. Why Obama and the Democrats are by far the best choice to continue moving this country forward.
