A message from Gore Vidal on behalf of his friends, Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich:
Please join me for a special afternoon fundraising reception to support the re-election of Congressman Dennis Kucinich, next Saturday, January 14th at 3pm.
With the Ohio Primary election less than two months away, and mail in ballots three weeks from now, this gathering will be instrumental in helping Congressman Kucinich obtain the resources necessary to win a hotly contested primary complicated by redistricting.
Please join the guest list at www.Kucinich.us/LA114 and encourage your friends to come too.
Over the past eight terms of Congressional service, and through two presidential campaigns, Dennis Kucinich has been a leader of Democrats, challenging wrongful, illegal wars and misadventures abroad; working for nuclear disarmament; attempting to defeat and repeal the Patriot Act; proposing the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney for leading America into a war based on lies; standing up for universal single payer health care. While holding the chair of the Government Oversight Subcommittee on Domestic Policy, he forced Wall Street bankers to an accounting and exposed their machinations which led to the subprime loan meltdown.
Dennis Kucinich has been a leader to protect ecologically sensitive areas from drilling, opposing fracking, the Keystone Pipeline, and working for nuclear safety and accountability.
He has shown the connection between peace and prosperity and has proposed a cabinet level Department of Peace, to create a new structure in our government which works from principles of non-violent conflict resolution. And, at a time when a woman’s right to privacy on reproductive decisions is under attack, he has taken a strong stand for choice.
As America continues to take steps towards a national security state, he is prepared to defend democratic principles and to protect basic Constitutional guarantees in the Bill of Rights.
His willingness to stand up and speak out, regardless of the issue, or the odds, has been made possible by contributors everywhere who recognize the value of having someone in Congress who cannot be bought or bossed and who has the integrity and willingness to take a stand.
Please support his effort to continue to serve in Congress. Go to www.Kucinich.us/LA114 to register your attendance. If you are unable to join us, please make a contribution to our campaign at www.Kucinich.us/contribute.
Thank you for your support of Dennis Kucinich’s re-election. His continued service in Congress is essential so we can continue the work to repair our nation, redirect it, and once again celebrate true democracy.
