Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Chris (Squeaky) Matthews falsely claimed fewer Young Voters...

Matthews falsely claimed "young people voted no ... [Media Matters for America]: "NBC and MSNBC host Chris Matthews misstated the turnout of young voters in the 2004 presidential election, disregarding the increase in 18- to 29-year-old voters. On the November 7 edition of the syndicated The Chris Matthews Show, Matthews said that President George W. Bush's positions on gay marriage, abortion, and stem cell research 'unnerved' young people, but that 'if you didn't vote, don't complain.' He then falsely claimed that 'the numbers show that young people voted no more in this election than they did in the last. Rock concerts and T-shirts don't count on election night.'

But turnout among 18- to 29-year-olds increased by 4.6 million voters over 2000 -- from 42.3 percent to 51.6 percent of such potential voters -- according to an analysis of exit poll data by the nonpartisan Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement"
