Who Gave Mitt Romney Money

Mitt Romney’s campaign received $1 million from a single donor through a now defunct PAC, Restore Our Future.  Who is this mysterious donor?

  • Al-Quaeda?
  • Saudi Prince?
  • Middle East Dictator?
  • Columbian Drug Lord?
  • Mexican Drug Lord?
  • Chinese PM?
  • Taliban?
  • Klu Klux Klan?
  • White Supremest Nazi?
  • Sovereign Nation Member?

Who is this bigoted person that IS AFRAID TO HAVE THEIR NAME DISCLOSED?  I know one thing for sure.  This person is a COWARD.

It could be anyone of the above mentioned people.  Does Romney pal around with terrorists?

Joe Sestak for US Senate

Pennsylvania for Change endorses Joe Sestak for US Senate representing the people of Pennsylvania.

Joe is a supporter of gender equality.

Joe Sestak believes in building better lives and futures for working families – particularly America’s women. Today, women earn only 77 cents for every dollar that men earn and 12 percent of women are their family’s main wage earner. To ensure the opportunity for a more secure future for women and their families, Joe believes we need to ensure that women are not only provided fair wages, but also benefits that are based on their performance; equal rights to challenge unfair practices, secure health and safety – including the right to choose – and skill training in fields that are underrepresented by women; and secure retirements and pensions that guarantee their independence and economic security in the coming years.

He also supports a public option health care plan.  When Joe Sestak retired from the Navy, he was offered many positions working for the military complex and he turned down these high paying jobs to run for Congress because he believes that it is his turn to give back to the American people.

Visit Joe’s website and read more about his position on issues, volunteer and/or contribute to his campaign.  During the 2010 primary, help get out the vote for Joe.

Just Ask – UPDATED with Links to Results

Twelve years ago in June, my husband and I moved into our current home.   The first chance that we got to vote in our new neighborhood was during the general election.  When I went to vote, I was greeted outside by a man who introduced himself and handed me a pen with his name on it.  He told me that he was running for Township Supervisor and he asked me to vote for him.  I asked him his views on environmental issues.  Turns out, he is a strong advocate of open space.   He won the election.  I told you that so that I can tell you this…  there was no one from either party standing outside the polls working for candidates other than the man running for Township Supervisor.  The Republican turnout in this township was strong and the Democratic turnout was weak.

This absence of party representation continued throughout the years.  The Republicans would place signs along the building and the Democrats had no information available.  Then came the year 2004 and George W. Bush was running for re-election.  We got involved with the Kerry Campaign which then introduced us to a group of like minded Democrats that were bound and determined to get out the vote for Kerry.  As a result, during the general election of 2004, my husband and I set up shop outside the poll with information about Democrats that were on the ballot.  We met many Democrats from our area which gave us a good feeling because in 2004, the Republicans outnumbered the Democrats in our voting precinct.  In 2005, we were both elected as Democratic Committee Precinct Leaders.

Since then, every general election, we set up shop complete with table, chairs and candy outside the poll.  We have been able to recruit volunteers to help with coverage.  Some volunteers even brought food, coffee and tea.  Last year, during the highly contested primary in PA, we asked Democrats if they would like to join our email list.  We told them that we would not abuse their email address and that we would only contact them prior to elections.  This worked out great during the general election of 2008 because we were able to get complete poll coverage not only at our voting precinct but also at other voting precincts that were missing Democratic Committe Precinct Leaders.  We also made phone calls and sent out postcards listing all the Democratic Candidates.  When the results were final, the part of the County that we and the volunteers covered went from red to blue.  This is remarkable.  The Democrats came out and voted.

Because of our visability at the poll over several years, we have made many new friends (it becomes a party atmosphere) and found that getting help to Get Out The Vote at election time is not too difficult.  All we had to do was ask and volunteers stepped forward.


Link to unofficial results of primary Berks County by Precinct Check out the results in Oley and Pike.  The Democrats came out and voted in this very off year election.  Oley has a higher number of Republicans than Democrats and Pike has 8 more Democrats than Republicans.   Yet the the number of votes by Democrats for the row offices outnumber the number of votes by Republicans.  Good job!

Obama’s Has the Delegates…

According to the Associated Press, Barack Obama has the necessary delegates to clinch the nomination. Read about it here on MSNBC. Sources within the Clinton campaign say that she is ready to acknowledge that Barack Obama has the necessary delegates. The rumors are that Hillary would consider the VP spot. Since there is no “runner-up” default for the VP position, Obama may spend some time researching who will best serve the nation and who will best balance the ticket in positions of strength.

Who do you think would be a good choice for Barack Obama’s running mate? How about some choices for Cabinet positions?

Will McBush pick Romney as his VP or will it be some other governor? We already know that McBush wants to appoint Phil Gramm, the lobbyist that pushed “Death Bonds”, read about it here… Secretary of the Treasury. If you thought the US Treasury has been raped and pillaged by the current Republican administration, wait until Phil Gramm gets a hold of it.

Okay – speak your mind… who are you choices and why?

PA Treasurer – Endorsed by…

Cats… I’m stepping out on a limb here and making an endorsement for PA Treasurer.

Dennis Morrison-Wesley is my choice for the row office of Pennsylvania Treasurer. The reason that he is receiving my endorsement is because if he becomes Treasurer, he will keep Pennsylvania tax money invested in Pennsylvania businesses. His term is “Patriotic Financing”. An example would be, Mellon Bank is considering closing it’s headquarters in Pittsburg and moving to New York City, to compete with the “big boys”. If this were to happen, then Morrison-Wesley would move PA money from Mellon and into another bank… a bank that is PA centered. Same with any business. Pennsylvania money should be invested in Pennsylvania businesses. I agree 100% with that concept. That’s integrity.

Here’s a link to his website:

That’s being Progressive.

Meet the 17th Congressional Delegate Candidate

Let Eileen introduce herself to you… Below is the letter which she mailed to the Democrats of Oley. Eileen is running in the 17th Congressional District which includes parts of Berks, Schuylkill, Lebanon and Dauphin Counties.

Dear Fellow Oley Democrat:

I usually write to you, as your Democratic Committeewoman, to share my thoughts on those candidates I am supporting in a general election. But today I write to you as a delegate candidate to the Democratic National Convention.

I am Co-Chair of Berks for Obama, a large group of grassroots volunteers, dedicated since February, 2007, to getting Barack Obama nominated as the Democratic candidate for President of the United States. We have worked hard all year to present the citizens of Berks County with the possibility of nominating a candidate who can transcend our divisions of race, and who can rise above the partisan politics of old.

I am running for Delegate to the Democratic National Convention, committed to Barack Obama, because his candidacy has inspired me. I want a president who will unite our country. I want a president who will heal the years of separation built by those politicians who use our differences to divide us and drive a wedge through our common hopes and dreams. I believe that Barack Obama is a true leader, who can inspire a nation, and our world.

I am writing to ask you to vote for me to represent you at the Democratic National Convention. I am the only delegate on the ballot in the 17th Congressional District, who is from Berks County; in fact, I am the only delegate outside of the Harrisburg area. I ask for your vote to give me the opportunity to represent you at the convention in Denver.

Your vote for delegate is separate from your vote for presidential candidate. Each of our presidential candidates will get a percentage of the four delegate slots in our district. The number of delegates for each candidate depends on the percentage of the vote he/she receives. The highest vote-getters, among each candidate’s pledged slate of delegates, will be the ones who go to the convention to represent the Democrats in the 17th Congressional District.

The four delegates on the ballot who are pledged to Barack Obama are:

  • Eileen G. Prussman
  • J. Alex Hartzler
  • Loretta Barbee-Dare
  • Dan Miller

Please consider a vote for all four of us.

As always, I have paid the cost of creating and mailing this letter, as I would pay the cost of the trip to Denver, should I win the right to represent you there.

Very truly yours,

Eileen G. Prussman
Berks County Democratic Committeewoman, Oley 1
