Imagine, if you will, a world with Sharron Angle as the US Senator representing Nevada.
That world would be one where Gays & Lesbians would not be allowed to provide children with a happy and loving home. She would rather please her hate filled financial puppet masters and deny children the one thing all kids crave, a loving family.
If you lost your job and had trouble finding another one to put food on your table or to have gas for your car to look for a job, Sharron Angle would consider you, “lazy”. As far as she’s concerned, you should be at the whims of fate with no help at all from your hard earned Unemployment Benefits even though you’ve done your duty and paid into the system your entire working life. How many people do you know who have lost their lives during the Bush Recession? Are they just a bunch of lazy bums? To Sharron Angle, they are.
Forget about ever retiring. If social extremist Sharron Angle has her way, your Social Security will go directly to Wall St to the bankers who gambled with our money and got us into this mess in the first place.
Is that the future you want to be your reality?
That’s why we HAVE TO ELECT HARRY REID so he can go back to DC and make sure the LGBT community is represented by someone who knows and understands what is not only best for us as a community, but for the United States of America as a country and an ideal.
There's only 12 hours left to cast your vote for the candidate you'd like the Forward Together PAC to support next.
That candidate is SENATE MAJORITY LEADER, HARRY REID.
Click here to cast your vote FOR HARRY REID, before midnight tonight.
Thanks so much for your help. Together, we can make a difference in this year's elections.
It takes under a minute to help keep Nevada and our country safe from the extremist agenda of Sharron Angle.
VOTE HARRY REID!

DOD and Repealing DADT
-This has nothing to do with amendments. Today's vote was a vote to begin debate on the bill, which includes the amendment process.
-By preventing us from getting on the bill Republicans are blocking funding and a pay raise for our troops and their ability to introduce their own amendments.
-Republicans aren’t just voting no on the DOD bill, they are literally refusing to even allow us to discuss the bill.
-Had Republicans allowed us to get on the bill votes on amendments would have started on Thursday.
-Repealing DADT was already written into the DOD bill because aside from being the right thing to do, it strengthens our military. Even the Pentagon supports repeal.
-We are closer than ever before to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and that’s because of Harry Reid.
-Reid is the one who put a repeal of DADT into the DOD bill, Reid is the one who scheduled a vote, and Reid is the one leading the effort to get to 60 votes.
-If passage of this bill is delayed, it’s because of Republican obstructionism, plain and simple.
-When it’s all said and done however, this bill will pass, and DADT will be repealed this Congress.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FACEBOOK NETWORKS NATIONWIDE NOW!
Also, text DADT to 42779 for the latest updates on Senator Reid's fight to get it passed.
Call the Senate switchboard now at 202-224-3121and ask to speak with your Senator.
Example Script for Your Call:
Hello, my name is __________ and I'm calling from __________ (city, state).
I know the a vote on the Defense bill could come as early as Tuesday. I'm calling to ask the Senator to stand with Sen. Reid and Sen. Carl Levin in opposing any filibuster or amendment to strike a repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" from the Defense bill. This discrimination is wrong and I believe that it is critical that they vote and finish the Defense bill before they leave for the election recess..
Will the Senator stand with Sen. Reid and Sen. Levin in opposing any attempt to strike a repeal of DADT from the Defense bill?
