Whether you are Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, you are vested is this economy. We put aside our religious and philosophical beliefs when we conduct business. This is business. Just business.
It is very important for liquor licensees, and all business owners, to become involved in the political arena. In this great Country we choose our representatives to act on our behalf and enact laws that protect our interests.
I hear from business owners all of the time that their interests are not being represented, or that laws are being passed that negatively affect them, and yet, they do nothing to support the political process and align themselves with those who will be in power to help them. It is imperative that you support candidates for office that will later be in a position to represent your interests.
In this site you might find information on candidates for office that we feel will be qualified, honest and fair, and sympathetic to the interests of the business owner. We urge you to not only vote for these candidates, but to do whatever you can, financially and otherwise, to help in their campaigns for office.
On occasion, we might ask you to host, sponsor or assist in a fundraiser or other political event. We urge you to participate. If you do not choose to participate, don't let us find you complaining later about the way things are!
HERE ARE THE PEOPLE WE ARE SUPPORTING THIS ELECTION:
1. AL TAUBENBERGER, for re-election for Councilman At Large for Philadelphia City Council.
2. GEORGE TWARDY, for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County.
THANKS FOR VOTING! More the come...
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
John Quincy Adams
Freedom isn't free. It shouldn't be a bragging point that 'Oh, I don't get involved in politics,' as if that makes someone cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic. Liars and panderers in government would have a much harder time of it if so many people didn't insist on their right to remain ignorant and blindly agreeable.
Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property, are the rulers.
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
John F. Kennedy
