Arthur Camins reminds us that the best way to reclaim the society we want is to vote for people who care about improving our democracy and the common good.

At present, we are stuck with politicians backed by the NRA, the Koch brothers, and big corporate interests.

The challenge is to vote for the candidate who represents who we want to be, not the candidate with the most money.

The change we want comes down to a single word: VOTE.

Call out what democratic decision-making for the common good looks like: the right to vote; freedom from fear of gun violence; affordable health care; decent food, clothing and shelter, good schools, a decent life in retirement, wages that enable people to pay their bills, a clean safe environment, mediating climate change, fair justice, family planning (include abortion) for EVERYONE.

FOR EVERYONE, no matter what, because that is how we act on our values.

These are uniting issues.

Say it out loud: A Doing good deed for ourselves and others as individuals are not enough.

Say it out loud: We can only achieve what we value for EVERYONE when we restore government an agent of the common good.

We can only achieve what we value for EVERYONE with a united integrated struggle.
