CrooksandLiars.com is one of my favorite websites and was my inspiration to start political blogging.Â And while doing my daily trolling, I came across this post about Beth Krom that effectively introduces her to the rest of Progressive America.
They love Beth!Â Here’s why:
Beth is exactly the kind of candidate we would like to see replacing a careerist clown and partisan hack like (Rep. John) Campbell. Â He is profoundly anti-environmental, yet represents one of the most beautiful stretches of seacoast in America. Thus Campbell is every irresponsible developer’s fondest dream. Beth has a very different vision for Orange County and for America.
As we experience the â€œshock and aweâ€ that has gripped the nation in the wake of the worst offshore oil spill in human history, itâ€™s important to consider that our thirst for oil has led to policies that place our entire ecosystem at risk.
When everything is out of balance, we feel the effects on a daily basis. An economy out of balance, a health-care system out of balance and a planet out of balance, reflect public policies that are out of balance. There are no perfect solutions, but ignoring our problems will only lead to greater challenges in the future.
Politics is not about the black and white, itâ€™s about the thousand shades of gray. It takes smart, courageous politicians to advance the kind of policies that will inspire change and help to move our country forward.
We think Beth can win and we think she’ll bring a tremendous improvement to Congress and to Orange County is she does. If you can, please consider giving her a hand at the Blue America ActBlue page.
