Is 2020 the time for significant change? I hope so.
Imagine believing absolutely that you are the most important person in the world because you are now the leader of what you believe is the greatest nation in the world. You believe you are here because you believe you are greater than all others and you deserve your leadership role. You believe you are where you are because of yourself and your magnificent innate talents.
These beliefs make recognizing reality almost impossible.
Right-wing authoritarianism has been corrupting our critical national systems for decades so as to end our long-term democratic experiment of maximizing equality. As a result, citizens have suffered needlessly for decades. Now we must stop the authoritarian's final push to maximize inequality in their favor.
- The abusive history of authoritarian systems,
- Their recently revealed failures during a pandemic and
- The authoritarian responses to BLM demonstrations
This election is about much more than replacing DJT. It’s about the system failures that have enabled him to get elected and that refuse to remove him from office by impeachment. It’s time for major system changes to our economic, political and policing systems. But first let me define some terms that I use in this message:
- Wage theft: This is the taking of wages from those who worked hard to earn them. It could be a small business owner who stiffs an undocumented profit maker/worker, or a major corporation that refuses to pay for improved profit maker/worker productivity.
- Profit makers/worker: These are workers who add more value to a product than they cost their employer in wages and benefits in order to complete the product. That added value is called profit. See first chart later in this email.
- Profit takers/looters: These are those corporate managers and executives who don’t add value (profit) to products and steal the value added by the profit makers for working smarter, faster, and cheaper. Instead profit makers are mearly compensated for inflation. The productivity/value-added gains all transferred to the top of the authoritarian economic structure. See second chart later in this email.
- Moneyed speech: Allowing the excessively wealthy to speak louder than others with less money.
- Co-ops: These are profit maker owned and managed businesses. The profit makers are the decision makers. No need for profit takers. The potential for economic equality is far more likely with profit makers deciding how profit (added value) is utilized.
Yard signs are available from various locations around the county.
The county has purchased two different yard signs for this election cycle. They are available for use in your yard and most will be used at polling places during the November election.
The GCDP Vote signs are available free to all members of any Democratic county club and sustaining donors to the GCDP. If you are not a club member or sustaining donor, a $5.00 donation is encouraged but not required.
Below is our terrific Democratic slate of candidates for the general election. Please get to know them all and support them where you can, be it financial and/or your time.
Critical reminder! The Galveston County Democratic Party works year round to get out the vote (GOTV) for all the candidates on the slate, but more so now in the months leading up to the election! So, please support our GOTV infrastructure TODAY! If you’d like to volunteer for our GOTV efforts, please sign up here! There are many volunteer activities happening right now. We need all hands on deck!!!
