Obama-WE are the Answer

Written by Deb Guidry HRC New Orleans Board of Governors, Political Co-Chair

This Presidential election is by far the most important one for LGBT Americans.  We have an opportunity to advance LGBT equality to new heights.  We are on the brink of “Marriage Equality” in many states and are changing hearts and minds throughout the country.  Now is not the time to sit back and relax.  We do not have time to celebrate our wins, we must work even harder, put in more hours, make phonecalls, write editorials, blogs, talk to our friends and our foe.  Educate our political leaders-give up a couple of “nights on the town” and donate to get Barack Obama re-elected.  This will be a very tight race and it is up for grabs.  Lets do all we can to make our lives as LGBT citizens a better one and to keep the pace going.

Remember, these things can only happen if Barack Obama is re-elected!  Romney & Ryan are getting excited about tuning the clocks back for LGBT folks, women, students, immigrants, the elderly and the middle class.  DADT and Obamacare will be repealed according to promises from Romney/Ryan.  The rich will get richer, the middle class and those among us who are even less fortunate will pay the piper.  I won’t even go into their lack of “foreign policy” knowledge.

Right now, WE are the answer.  WE must do all that we can to get the vote out for Barack Obama.  Please review your schedules, and find some time to be the ANSWER!
