Top Ten Reasons to worry about the upcoming election

  • The opponent in our Senate race thinks global warming doesn't exist.
  • The opponent in our Congressional race plans to get rid of Social Security as we know it.
  • One candidate for governor plans to scrap our public pension plan, effectively cutting my income by 30%.
  • The opposing candidate for Senate is out of touch with the middle class, which means me.
  • The opposing candidate for Congress has moved in and out of the district several times; whom does he really represent?
  • Many candidates talk about cutting taxes by reducing education budgets - budgets that have already been cut to the bone.
  • Candidates are talking about judging teachers by their students' test scores. If that's the case, people, give me a chance. Bring these kids into my class reading and achieving at grade level.
  • I can't afford to donate enough to my candidates, but I can't afford not to; if the wrong side wins, my working conditions will worsen severely.
  • Misleading advertising might just tip voting in the wrong direction.
  • Negative advertising might encourage people to stay home, and low voter turnout is never good.

In Florida, we have a candidate who is thinking about raising the sales tax to 23% and a Governor candidate who defrauded the US government for a billion or so dollars....oops, sorry, it wasn't him personally, it was his COMPANY and he says he knew nothing about it.
