Democrats Say It Better Than I Can

democratic-donkey In a memo to his fellow Democrats, former Clinton White House political director Doug Sosnik writes  about “an increasing populist push” across the political spectrum.

At the core of Americans’ anger and alienation is the belief that the American Dream is no longer attainable. But increasingly, Americans haveI concluded that the rules aren’t fair and that the system has been rigged to concentrate power and wealth in the hands of a privileged few at the expense of the many. And now the government is simply not working for anyone.

The political elites are worried. Patriots are rising up. One story carried the banner headline of “Why [Eric] Cantor’s loss is especially bad news for big business.”

But Democrat strategist Sosnik says it best:

Americans’ long-brewing discontent shows clear signs of reaching a boiling point. And when it happens, the country will judge its politicians through a new filter — one that asks, “Which side of the barricade are you on? Is it the side of the out-of-touch political class that clings to the status quo by protecting those at the top and their own political agendas, or is it the side that is fighting for the kind of change that will make the government work for the people — all the people?”

The job of the Constitution Party is to offer a platform to voters who are wakening up to the intrigues of the Washington power brokers. They are searching for ideas and ideals that will redeem this nation. We are unique in saying the Founding fathers blueprints — and admonitions — still ring true today. John Adams’ warning is central to our mission:

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

There are 143 days left before voters cast their ballots. I have no other way of asking for your help except to lay it out straight: our Constitution Party needs patriots willing to invest $50, $100, $500 or even $20 or $25.

And we need those financial resources today. Ballot access drives are still underway. Voters are looking for alternatives to the establishment candidates. They must see and hear our message of principles and practical solutions to public policies issues, ranging from city council to U.S. Senate.

May I count on your help? Will you respond right away? Your gift of $50 or $15 — whatever you can afford — is urgently needed.

Gratefully,

Frank Fluckiger
National Chairman
