I am running for Congress as a Green because it is time for the citizens of Oregon to have someone who represents them, and not the blind interests of a neo-conservative agenda. Blind interests that have led us down the path of war, neglected our most vulnerable citizens, young and old, and given us a crumbling economy.
Vote for Peace
It is time to end the failed wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that have cost the US taxpayers more than a trillion dollars and disgraced the United States in the eyes of the international community. Democrats have proven that they will not end war so it is up to a progressive third party to do what the Democrats have failed to do. A vote for the Green Party is a vote to bring the troops home now.
|Why Vote For Christina Lugo:|
|A Healthy Planet
The recent crisis in the Gulf further illustrates the need for real solutions to our collective dependence on oil and corporate cronyism. It is time to end our dependence on oil by developing safe and viable alternative energy sources. It is time to leave our children a clean, healthy and peaceful environment in which to live and raise their families.
We can see now that the policies of the Democratic Party will not make America stronger. Oregonians are out of jobs, people are losing their homes, the middle class is shrinking and the federal deficit mushrooming because of reckless war profiteering, corporate subsidies and tax breaks for the most privileged members of our community.
It is time for a positive change in Oregon. It is time to turn away from the policies of greed and fear that the two party system represents. Americans are ready for a compassionate government that addresses real human needs. Thanks again for your consideration of support and I look forward to serving you next year as your Green Party representative in the 5th Congressional District of Oregon.
