Thank the California Democratic Party for refusing Big Oil money!

On November 19, the California Democratic Party announced that it would refuse contributions from Big Oil. That's a big bold step for a party that had taken tens of thousands from Chevron and other fossil fuel companies polluting California's air, in the past - and a strong commitment to leading the nation away from a Trump presidency and toward a better future. Add your name to thank the party, to ask the next chair to keep the ban on fossil fuel contributions to the party, and to ask the Democratic National Committee and other state Democratic parties to join the ban!

To the California Democratic Party: Thank you for refusing Big Oil money!

    Not long after the close of the second world war, a gathering took place in the upper Mojave Desert of the United States; among those in attendance were Dr. Bertrand Russell and Dr. Edmond Jaeger, the dean of American desert naturalists.


    Around the campfire one evening, the topic under consideration was Right and Wrong. After listening to the discussion amongst his distinguished colleagues for a fashion, Jaeger turned to Russell, whose white wispy hair and pipe smoke were outlined in the flames, and said, “The environment, since it cannot run away nor defend itself, must be protected. And THAT, sir, is the difference between what is Right and what is Wrong.”


    Seven decades later, that definition of absolute morality has, if anything, gained orders of magnitude greater currency.

    I am a native born Californian. I love my state because we have always had high taxes but you get what you pay for here. Even though Federal Government is dragging it’s feet as usual Californian think longer term. Plus we have a beautiful State. We know our state and it’ may seem quirky but we will always protest to protect what we pay for
