A Speech That Could Change the Direction of the Country
Senator Russell Feingold will outline critical steps needed to defend our Democracy, including making all elections secure against vote suppression and tampering, ending the influence of big money on politics, preserving checks and balances in government and defending the constitutional rights of American citizens.

The speech, sponsored by MoveOn.org Political Action, is the third and final in a series of events aimed at promoting a positive national agenda and at mobilizing the organization' s volunteers and voters in the upcoming congressional elections. The previous speakers were Congressman Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. Brown focused on the need to ensure that all Americans have guaranteed access to high quality, affordable health care and to help us achieve energy independence, Obama outlined a plan to shift away from fossil fuel and towards clean renewable energy sources.

This summer, over 100,000 MoveOn members came together in house parties and online to choose the top three positive goals for the country that MoveOn will fight for in the months to come -- health care for all, clean energy and a democracy restored.

"MoveOn members care passionately about restoring democracy," said Ben Brandzel, advocacy director for MoveOn.org Political Action. "Senator Feingold's leadership will motivate members to work hard so we can win big in November and achieve these critical goals," he added.

"We now have an election system badly in need of repair, and a President who thinks he is above the law. As a consequence, we've seen the checks and balances built into our constitution weakened and many of our citizens' rights eroded. This fall we have an opportunity to say enough is enough and begin restoring our democracy," said Feingold.

At the Obama and Feingold events and online, members are encouraged to sign up for Call for Change, a volunteer phone bank designed to increase Democratic turnout for the mid-term elections. The program allows MoveOn's tens of thousands of volunteers to instantly mobilize and make GOTV calls to Democratic voters in the most competitive races.

The speech, expected to be broadcast nationally, will take place Monday, Sept. 25, at Noon EST at Independence Mall in Philadelphia PA.

You are clearly some sort of communist free thinking trouble maker. Shame on you. ;)
