North Carolina--A Battleground State

Somehow I got on the Email listing for Kerry/Edwards. I have not elected to unsubscribe since it is interesting to see what they are doing. Today,I received the following amd include the parts that I found of interest.

Dear Supporter,

Your state is one of the battleground states that will decide this election. George Bush and Dick Cheney are spending a lot of time in NC, and the Bush-Cheney campaign is pouring millions of dollars into misleading attack ads.

The cavalry is coming.

To win, we will build the biggest volunteer-driven grassroots effort your state has ever seen.

Indeed this should be a battleground state since John Edwards has been AWOL most of the past year. I have written him, asking him to resign so that someone could be appointed to represent his constiuents. No response in writing. No response in action. It is my fault for voting for him, but I really resent the fact that my vote counts for nothing once he decided to try for greener pastures. Much is said about making every vote count. Lawyers will be on hand to make certain no Democrat is disenfranchised at the upcoming election. I am one North Carolinian who will not throw away another of my votes on John Edwards. He asked for my vote before and I gave it only to have him desert his supporters. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I will vote for the candidates who keep their commitments.

  1. Pat, the two Johns are peas in a pod. Edwards is just the younger version.
