Sam Stein, reporting for the HuffingtonPost, writes:
In the last round of ads it will run before the election, the progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org is going back to the well, raising the specter of well-resourced corporations overwhelming the vote of regular citizens.
Airing in 28 different races, the spot took obvious, painstaking effort to produce, featuring actual voters in that specific district reading portions of the script. But by getting authentic narrators to deliver the message there is some additional resonance.
Here is the MoveOn spot:
To bad MoveOn.org ignores the Democrats complicity in the clusterfuck of our current 2 party duopoly.
No Cure For That has responded withthe following ad:
This Ad is not paid for by the corporate front groups, oil billionaires, or foreign entities that are trying to buy this election for the Republicans.
And this Ad is not paid for by Wall Street Hedge Fund managers trying to ensure that finical regulation remains a dirty word for Democrats.
And this ad is not paid for by the military industrial complex, who have ensured that not matter which of the major parties are in power, we will continue to spend and kill well past our economic and moral limits.
This is our ad, made by hard working, independent Americans.
This November 2nd, let the GOP know that they are batshit crazy. The left wing lost the culture wars of the 1990s, but we welcome the opportunity for CW2. (4 continued)
This November 2nd, let the Democrats know that they have taken your vote for granted for to long. You gave them 2006. You gave them 2008. They failed you in every way.
This November 2nd, go to the ballot box and vote Green, 3rd party, or cast a protest vote by writing in: “NO CURE FOR THAT”.
Everyone is doing it.
Guys are doing it with girls. Girls are doing it with other Girls.
When doing it for the first time, some people don’t last so long.
Some get scared and pull out right in the middle of doing it.
Underage groups get together, get sloppy, and do it.
Some like deeper penetration when they do it.
When people do it for to long, their hands cramp up.
Some people have steady aim, and others just spray everywhere.
Some people like to do it hardcore.
It is safe to say, everyone is doing it.
Even underage minors can go into the U.S. Army experience super store in a mall near you and do it all day.
In the U.S Army Experience store, you can do it for free.
And since doing it on a video game has become just like doing it in real life, the U.S. Army is actively recruiting the best of those who do it to go and kill people in an illegal and immoral war.
So do it now. Do it often. Do it with random strangers until you are so sore you can’t possibly do it anymore. Because this is Modern Warfare, go on, do it hardcore, because this is your call of duty, and you are American, which means you do it when you want, to whom you want, how often you want, and you do it how violently you want.
