You can make a difference; DeMarco and Palmer won't

Do you think it will make a difference whether you vote for Paul DeMarco or Gary Palmer in the Alabama 6th Congressional district run off election?

I have tried to make the case that Congress is incapacitated. I have tried to give a diagnosis about what has caused this and to give an explanation of why Congress will not, of its own accord, fix itself.

The spokesperson who I think best articulates these matters is Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig. I have been urging voters in the Alabama 6th Congressional district to watch  this 18 minute video of Professor Lessig and/or read his short book Lesterland: The Corruption of Congress And How To End It.

To my knowledge, Paul DeMarco and Gary Palmer have given no acknowledgement to any of the foregoing.

It can be expected that, whichever may be elected, Paul DeMarco and Gary Palmer will only contribute to the continuation of the kaput condition of our Congress, and it makes no difference which of them you vote for.

If you want to make a difference, tell Paul DeMarco and Gary Palmer they are clueless, and that you are making a contribution to Professor Lessig's  MaydayPAC to help reduce the influence of money in politics and fix our democracy.

As the MaydayPAC link indicates, there is a goal of $5,000,000 by July 4th.

Please contribute, and make a difference.

I have created a Mayday.Us Rob Shattuck's pledge page. You can make your pledge on that page or on the MaydayPAC general pledge page.
