We differ in our political parties and views. We even differ in our preferred Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates. But we believe that every candidate has a right to be a human being, treated with dignity, judged on facts not rumors.
We believe that candidates' families should be treated with respect, and their personal choices, successes, or failures should remain irrelevant to the political discourse.
We believe the mainstream media MUST be held accountable for reporting rumors as fact, pushing personal challenges as political speaking points, and leaving objectivity at the door. We believe that sexist, racist or demeaning language has no place in the media.
We believe that female candidates should be held to the same standards as male candidates, afforded the same courtesies, and welcomed into political arena with the same enthusiasm.
We believe that Sarah Palin's place in history should be about her skills and her accomplishments - not about her uterus or anyone else's.
We ask ALL people of good conscience to speak out in support of the Palin family - not because you necessarily think Sarah Palin is the perfect choice for Vice-President - but because you want the doors of opportunity open for your daughters and for other human beings who dare to be personally imperfect under the American political microscope.
