America can't afford this sort of change.

They want you to believe it's a new day and the past is behind us.

Forget about jobs, they say, or the billions of dollars in job creation.

They want to put a stop to six billion dollars in free market activity that's good for the economy, good for America.

If they have their way, one of the fastest-growing sectors of our economy is coming to a screeching halt, today.

Don't let "voters" stop the campaign.

Political Spending is America's economic powerhouse.

Sure, "voters" are having their say, but what about the campaigns that stimulated the economy to the tune of six billion dollars?

The Citizens United stimulus worked, just ask the thousands of copywriters, political operatives, consultants, video editors and ad executives-- now looking for work.

Why, independent political groups alone spent nineteen million dollars a week in September, thirty-three million a week in the beginning of October, and seventy million a week by the end of October.

Political spending and campaign ads mean jobs!

What would this economy look like if voters and a job-killing "election" hadn't put a stop to the boom?

It's time we got America working again, it's time for . . .  a perpetual campaign.

(Paid for by a coalition of political consultants, operatives, copywriters, pundits, national broadcast outlets and ominous narrators like myself.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
