Letter to Potential Voters

Calhoun County Democratic Party

PO Box 1012 | Port Lavaca, TX 77979

 

           

Dear Voters,

           

There are many forms of democracy in this world and contrary to some people's beliefs, the United States of America is a democratic nation.

 

We choose to vote for those we feel will represent our best interests and advocate for our needs. They represent us locally, in state government, Congress, and even the White House.

 

Democracy is something priceless which our ancestors have fought and died for and our duty as citizens in this nation is to either go into some form of public service or vote.

 

2024 is the most clear election in our history.

 

One party is actively fighting to protect and preserve democracy and expand civil rights to all citizens of this nation.

 

The other party is choosing to actively support a man who has said that he will be a "Day One Dictator," a man who believes as President that he is completely immune to criminal law even if he decides to assassinate his political opponents as his lawyer argued in court on Jan 9, 2024. A man who supports the most draconian form of Christianity that is being pushed by his supporters, even though, he himself, is an atheist.

 

Vote your conscience, choose your path. Do you vote for Democrats who want to help your fellow man? Or do you vote for Republicans who want to help install a Trump Dictatorship and have their Christian beliefs be the law of the land and the only acceptable religion in America?

 

The choice and its consequences are yours.

 

Choose wisely. Our democracy and our rights hang in the balance.

 


If you want to help save our democracy, I have seven suggestions:

 

Number One is VOTE.

Every single vote matters, especially now. Texas is the most anti-voter state in the nation. Texas Republicans have made it nearly impossible for every single legally able citizen to vote. That shows how much they are terrified of you. They will do whatever they can to keep you from voting because they need to keep you from voting because you vote has the POWER to kick them out of office and change Texas from ′Republican Christian Theocratic′ dreamland to one in which we have equal rights no matter our race, creed, religion, sexuality, sex, gender, age, wealth, social status, and so forth.

 

Number Two is Donate.

Donate to our local party. We are the grassroots of the Texas Democratic Party. Building local county parties builds up the state and national party. It’s easy to donate through our official Act Blue account (https://secure.actblue.com/donate/calhouncountytxdems). Or use our QR code.


            Or mail your donation to:

Number Three is attending meetings, volunteer, & get involved however you can.

We meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month (except holidays and elections), 6 pm at Calhoun County Public Library in Port Lavaca 200 W Mahan Street Port Lavaca, Texas. We have the social/potluck portion which begins at 5.30.

 

Letter writing, postcards, phone banking, text banking, registering voters, working elections, being a precinct chair, organizing events, and more. Let us know what YOU are ready to do.

 

Number Four is to talk to people you know how Trumpism is a danger to the Republic, to America, and to Democracy here and across the world.

 

When you see an issue that needs to be addressed, don’t be intimidated by loud bullies or keyboard warriors. You will be surprised by the support you will receive here in our community.

 

Number Five is Run for Office.

There are no special qualifications to run for office in Texas. Sometimes all it takes is a high school diploma. There are organizations and people who are standing by to support you as you run for school board, city council, county commissioner, navigation district, Justice of the Peace, district or county clerk, judges, Sheriff, constable, county treasurer, State Representative, State Senate, and so forth.

 

Whatever you are interested in, there is room for you at the table. You can find more information and resources in our brochure or here: https://www.calhountxdemocrats.org/run-for-office 

Reach out to us and we will talk to you about what you need to know if you plan on running for office locally, county-wide, or a higher form of office. We are here to help you in any way that we can.

 

Number Six is to respond to this letter by letting us know if you are still a Democratic voter, if you are interested in joining the Calhoun County Democratic Club, if you are interested in attending our meeting, in donating to us, in running for office, or so forth. Most of all, it is to let us know if you wish to be removed from our lists and want us to no longer contact you.

 

Number Seven is to be optimistic.

Like President Biden said last year on August 25, 2022:

"Look, I believe America is at a genuine inflection point that occurs every six or seven generations in world history — one of the moments — one of the moments that changes everything. And Americans are going have to choose.  You must choose.  Will be it — will we be a country that moves forward or backward?  Will we build a future or obsess over the past? Will we be a nation of unity, of hope, of optimism — not a nation of anger, violence, hatred, and division?
Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice: to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate, and division.
But we've chosen a different path: forward, the future, unity, hope, and optimism.  (Applause.) I mean it sincerely.  We choose to build a better America."

 

If we all work together, we can change the course we are on and to save American Democracy and in turn help save democracy across the world. Every generation has a call to duty, and this is ours.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Brandelyn Wiser

Calhoun County Democratic Chair
