Like many of you, and like the majority of Americans, I consider myself a moderate. There are good and bad people and good and bad ideas coming from both major political parties. And, also, like many of you, I'm very concerned with the current political climate in Washington.
We find our country in a current environment of bullying, demonizing political opponents, and worst of all, the refusal to work with the opposing party, for fear that constituents, (read: high dollar donors) will take issue.
Our current congressman, Mr. Mark Amodei, has simply got to go. He exemplifies many things people hate about today's politics: Being more concerned with party loyalty and schmoozing donors than working on realistic solutions or representing the people of his district to Washington. His most egregious error -- failing to ever stand up to our President, the most dishonest, ignorant, and incompetent man to ever hold the office.
Ed Cohen is running in the Democratic Primary for Congress. A self-described independent, who like me, is disgusted with the current state of affairs in Washington. A few of the reasons you should consider voting for him:
1. Mr. Cohen plans to run to represent a special interest group -- honest and decent people who live in Northern Nevada.
2. An unshakable commitment to honesty and integrity. This is his top priority.
3. He supports practical, realistic solutions to complex problems. Neither ultra conservative, nor super liberal, Mr. Cohen supports solutions that we can all live with, no matter our political persuasion. No party is going to get everything they want. We need people like Mr. Cohen who can see the forest through the trees and support legislation that actually helps people.
4. Ed Cohen is the only candidate that can beat Mark Amodei. If the democrats put up a hardcore liberal to take on Mr. Amodei, there is a 100% chance they lose.
I invite all my friends/neighbors to check out his website, edcohenforcongress.com, and to please consider voting for him in the upcoming primary.
