Hello Iowa Republicans!
With a band of “Koch Brother Waterboys” and another demagogic Texan throwing their hats into the ring in the Iowa Straw Poll currently, this Kansas Progressive Republican is going to ask you in Iowa to vote for him, instead. I have long been ahead of the curve in calling for assistance for the poor, the middle-class and the manipulated masses of Americans. Just recall my warnings in 2007 when I last ran in Iowa.
America needs some progressive Republicans to get more balanced political representation in 2012. I am going to represent this need and the group of Americans who have been left out in the cold by the Tea Party and Luke Warm candidates on the current slate before you. I am a christian fundamentalist who believes in progressive and socially conscious governance and political economy–just at the Bible preaches. The Bible calls for us to shake up this unequal system constructed obtusely by man over the past half century.
Alas, a lot of folks, including Governor Perry of Texas, do not understand that they should thank the Lord for the good governance they have had–including the highways, pre-school programs, and vaccinations used by nearly all citizens in the USA–and demand much more “socially just governance”.
Finally, as a progressive I call upon Republicans on the so-called “super committee” to hold fast to three progressive principles:
1. Oppose any plan that ends Medicare as we know it.
2. Protect Social Security — a program that isn’t responsible for the deficit.
3. Demand that big corporations and the wealthy share in the sacrifice.
Please consider me in this August 2011 Straw Poll in your great state of Iowa!
