Vote straight Demo­cratic

The Ambler Gazette - - LETTERS -

To the Ed­i­tor:

On Nov. 6, Amer­i­cans will for the 57th time vote to elect a pres­i­dent. Some peo­ple take this priv­i­lege for granted, and oth­ers don’t even bother to show up. This is a tragedy. We all need to take this re­spon­si­bil­ity — our Amer­i­can birthright — se­ri­ously. sot­ing is the least we can do for the sake of our­selves and our chil­dren.

f would like to urge vot­ers to vote straight Demo­cratic, from top to bot­tom.

Four years ago, the Repub­li­can Party had lit­er­ally taken this na­tion to the brink of catas­tro­phe. That’s not just a cliché; it’s a fact. Think back to the mood of late 2008/early 2009. There was wide­spread pes­simism about the fu­ture. Most economists were pre­dict­ing not a re­ces­sion, but de­pres­sion.

Pres­i­dent Obama in­her­ited this mess and im­me­di­ately went to work to fiX WKH SUREOHP. DHVSLWH the con­stant ob­sta­cles put up by the party of NO (the GOP), Obama got the “stim­u­lus” passed — and now ev­ery econ­o­mist with an ounce of hon­esty will tell you that with­out that leg­is­la­tion, the U.S. would still be in a de­pres­sion.

Since then we have seen more than 40 months of job growth. The Dow is at record-high lev­els. The hor­ri­ble hous­ing cri­sis is all but over. And GM is not only in busi­ness, it’s thriv­ing.

Why would we ever want to re­turn to the failed poli­cies that brought us to that FULVLV LN WKH fiUVW SODFH?

As usual, f will share some im­por­tant web­sites that can come in handy for the elec­tion. Can­fvote. org will tell you if you are reg­is­tered and where you should vote. fSideWith. com lets you take a pres­i­den­tial is­sues quiz and ac­cord­ing to your re­sponses will match you to the can­di­date who most closely agrees with you. Per­haps most im­por­tant this year is poli­tifact.com, which VHSDUDWHV IDFW IURP fiF­tion and truth from lies. f highly rec­om­mend that all vot­ers visit this site; check the “Pants-on-Fire” tab, and see who is ly­ing the most and who is be­ing lied about the most.

Fi­nally, for all vot­ers in Ambler’s 2nd Ward, please be aware that your polling place has been switched from Bor­ough eall to the Se­nior Adult Ac­tiv­ity Cen­ter at 45 For­est Ave. (at the cor­ner of For­est Av­enue and North Spring Gar­den Street).
