Social Security and the minimum wage should be front and center on any democratic candidate’s platform. Rachel Maddow suggested the minimum wage as a campaign issue a couple weeks ago. I also think that running on HCR is also not only a good idea but a way to debunk the many lies that republicans have promoted since before the bill was passed in March of this year. Poll after poll shows that when Americans actually discover what is in the Affordable Care Act, they like it.
Anyone living in Kentucky should vote for Rand Paul. Jack Conway has proved himself to be a swarmy and despicable politician . His tactics are Rovian at best, and they display a disturbing lack of understanding of our constitution. Attacking a man as unfit for public office because he mocked organized religion in college is the kind of thing you expect from a fundamentalist Christian candidate. This is (or is supposed to be) a democracy that respects the separation of Church and State, and anyone who doesn’t does not belong in office. (Does anyone else suspect that Conway and Christine O’Donnell might a lot in common?) To be clear, I say this as somebody who has never voted for a Republican in my life, and to be sure I find quite a few of Rand’s views, especially concerning the economy, troubling. But that said, unlike our Democratic President, he has questioned our role in Afghanistan and other foriegn countries, so there might other reasons to vote for Rand Paul as well.
