Let us stop the needless spending in Washington!

Friends,

Back in 2010 the country elected people who said they were going to stop the needless spending in Washington, D.C. Well, Washington is spending more than ever before. This weekend, I learned that House Republicans held a closed-door meeting to discuss impeaching the President and they are going forward. Enough is enough! This is only for show but that show is costing you money. Walter Jones wants to sue and impeach the President. And, he wants to spend taxpayer money to do it. Help me raise $3,800 by Wednesday to place media ads in the 3rd District of NC to stop this run-away Congress. Stop this Congress from wasting our money.

Can I count on you to help me defeat Walter Jones?

Click on my website to donate and chip in $5 or $10 to help. Every minute counts and every dollar is needed.

Raising the Minimum Wage Helps Working Families

Today marks the 100 days until the election, and many of you in North Carolina’s Third District are going to have a decision to make. By your vote, you will decide who will represent you in the U.S. Congress. You want someone who understands what you are going through day in and day out, living paycheck to paycheck. That is why a vote for me is a vote for a representative who will fight to raise the minimum wage to a real living wage. Many of you are living in poverty or close to the poverty line and the current minimum wage, which has not been raised in 5 years, is not enough for you to met all the needs for your family. It is time for Congress to actually step up to the plate and do something for working families. If elected, I will push for the minimum wage to be increased so you can provide for your family without worry.

New Bern Sun Journal reports on Christian Coalition Meeting

“The excessive spending began at the onset of my life and has been going on for 45 years but the spiral started after 9/11 and cost us trillions of dollars,” Adame said. “Congress allocates money but the Federal Reserve prints money. If they print it and Congress gets its hands on it, they spend it. It’s not relegated to just one party. I’m a Bush appointee. We were wasting money hand over fist.”

Congress Has Crippled This Nation

Over the past 24 hours I've learned that right wing extremests in Congress plan to launch a major assault to repeal Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, a 2008 law signed by President George W. Bush.  This repeal will result in devastating an important border patrol initiative which will likely put all of the affected children at serious risk. 

I need $1700 by Monday to place radio adds in the third congressional district, exposing Walter Jones' voting record.  Please help me fight the good fight today by chipping in $5-10 or $20 dollars now.  I know I can count on you to help.

Meet Marshall Adame!

My personal life is a testimony to the reality that America`s promise is still alive. It would be irresponsible and ungrateful of me to not give back to our great country. Though our government has failed us from time to time, I believe our greatest days are ahead of us. Our firm foundation has not been moved. It is still there to be built upon. People of vision and hope built America; now our challenge is to dare to be great. Future generations are counting on us to not let them down.

If we are to again achieve great success for America, we must find a way to once again unite as a country and as a people. We can create opportunity in America once again. Effective public schools, universities, competitive industry, well-paying jobs and comprehensive healthcare are the steps to reclaiming the American Dream. We all, regardless of our personal state or status in life, have the right and the responsibility to pursue Life, Liberty and Happiness.

America is distinguished by our historic commitment to innovation, leadership, courage, compassion, integrity and goodness. This election should not be about destroying each other’s personalities or positions; but rather, we must focus on our shared hope that we can find a way back to the road to prosperity. I believe in America and I believe in her people.

This election is about our future in North Carolina and throughout America.

We Have An Urgent Need

Friends, we have an urgent need:

 

Walter Jones has gone on the offensive against Marshall Adame for Congress. Walter has robo called all of the 3rd Congressional District, except for Pitt County, trying to explain why he voted not to sue the President Obama but wants to spend over $100 million dollars to impeach him instead.

 

Why?  A few days ago, Walter had a virtual town hall in where members of his own party railed against him and began to hang up on him because even lifelong Republicans and WBJ supporters are tired of him talking out of both sides of his mouth.

 

What we need:  We need a few people who can help us phone bank this week to set the record straight about Walter Jones.  

 

If you or someone you know can help, forward this message and have them contact us.  And, if possible, please share this with all your like-minded friends.  If you would like to help us phone bank, please reply to: Marshall4Congress@gmail.com

 

The 3rd Congressional District is in play and Walter knows it.  To my knowledge, Walter has never robo called this early in a campaign cycle during a mid-term general election. 

 

Thank you for your help.  There’s one more thing you can do to help us retire this 20 year career politician.  Please go to http://www.marshall4congress.com and chip in a few dollars to help us spread the word and combat Walter’s half-truths in his robo call.

Where is Walter Jones When Rural North Carolinians Need Him?

Today Adam O’Neal, the mayor of Belhaven, NC is bringing to light the recent closing of Vidant Pungo Hospital that served over 20,000 people in the rural communities of Eastern North Carolina. This means that people in those communities will have to travel over 84 miles to receive critical care.

This is not an issue just in this area but in many rural areas throughout our Third Congressional District. The current economic challenges have brought on serious life and death consequences in our district. I believe in healthcare for everyone no matter where they live or what tax bracket they may fall under.

What is sad is that Mayor O’Neal has to walk to Washington, D.C. just to ask for help. Where is Congressman Jones? If he were here the mayor of Belhaven would not have to walk to D.C. to address this serious issue.

This is no longer a political situation - this is a life or death situation that reaches far beyond Belhaven. It reaches you and me, too. If Congressman Jones will not stand up for Pungo Hospital and the people of our rural district; then why is he our Congressman? Even Kay Hagan tried to help the citizens of Belhaven.  

I stand today with Mayor Adam O’Neal and the citizens of Beaufort and Hyde Counties in the fight to bring quality, accessible healthcare to rural Eastern North Carolina.

Marshall's statement on the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling effecting Campaign Finance

A COMMENT REGARDING OUR CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT RULING ABOUT CAMPIGN FINANCE -
Every Democrat and most other Americans know that the decision by our Conservative US Supreme Court has the potential to change Democracy as we know it. The... voting booths will still be here but the Purity of the Democratic Process will be lost to the enormous wealth which is capable of defining the "truth" for Americans. How very sad. The republican Right will now work to accelerate the great income inequality Gap which will likely increase until, like in many third world countries, the Republican mantra of "The Strong survive" actually becomes the thing that begins to hurt them the most. Of course I am going to do all I can, as an individual, to fight the bad outcomes of this decision, but if every concerned American does not join the fight to stop the Billionaires and Industrialist (American and Foreign) in America from owning our government, we will fail our Democracy, our forefathers, their dream and the vision which made America great.
