Meet Joe Donnelly

Posted by iusbvision on October 25, 2006

The New York Times labeled the Indiana 2nd Congressional district “Ground Zero.” If you want to see the much needed change in Washington take place it is absolutely imperative that you vote for Joe Donnelly at the polls on Election Day. Our district has the ability to literally change our country and it just so happens that we have a great candidate to get the job done.

Joe Donnelly, our next congressman, has the character of a great man. He’s one of those people who can walk into a room and have the ability to brighten your day by simply being nearby. There has never been a time when I volunteered for him that he didn’t personally pat me on the back and thank me for the help. If you have had the opportunity to meet him, you would have noticed the bright smile on his face, well, that smile never leaves.

He’s been labeled a staunch liberal, Joe is anything but. He’s a pro-life democrat, against gay marriage, and in favor of our second amendment right to bear arms. He is in favor of President Bush’s tax cuts except for those that go to the top 1% of wage earners (those who make over $300,000 a year).

All the while, Joe Donnelly believes in the strength of the working class and will be a man of his word when he fights for more affordable healthcare, a raise in the minimum wage, and expansion of fair trade policies. He will support no measures to privatize social security and supports full funding for veteran’s benefits. 

Joe is a strong advocate in using alternative energy sources, feeling that by doing so we can reduce or eliminate dependency on foreign oil, create more jobs, and build a stronger economy by developing and expanding ethanol plants right here in Northern Indiana.
Joe is an independent voice who will stand up for the real values and interests of us constituents here in our wonderful state of Indiana.

Take part in changing the direction of your country. Vote for Joe Donnelly to be your next congressman on November 7th.

Editor’s Note
This is not an endorsement of Joe Donnelly.  The College Republicans agreed to write a similar piece for Congressman Chris Chocola.  However, after agreeing to write multiple times, they failed to submit their article.  We encourage supporters of this candidate to jump on the weblog and post election information.
