Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information. In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings. To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country. But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

August 6th Meeting #327
Filling the Gaps
Carol Donovan, Dallas County Democratic Party Chair, will discuss how we fill the "gender gap," which is real and well-documented. Based on statistics, women and men often vote differently, and for different reasons. She will argue that there are many other such "gaps" amongst our electorate, and will share her observations on electoral differences based on age, race, gender and other factors. Carol concludes that an enlightened electorate is far more likely to get out and vote, and vote purposefully, which is a significant part of a democratic society.

On the Necessity of Taking the Offer
of Federal Money to Expand Medicaid
Gene Lantz, President of the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans Educational Fund, Board member, UAW 848, Dallas AFL-CIO, Texas AFL-CIO, North Texas Jobs with Justice/New Era, host of 'Workers Beat" radio show on KNON, 89.3 FM and http://knon.org/, content provider: http://texasretiredamericans.org/, http://tx.aflcio.org/dallascic, ttp://lilleskole.us, [http://labordallas.org,/]http://labordallas.org,/ and author of "The 11 Hour Strike, the 15 Month Ordeal". "Life Lessons", Labor History Timeline", and a number of original songs will discuss how Texas should take the offer of federal money to expand Medicaid. He will argue that the Republican-led states refused to do it even though millions of low-income workers would have been able to get subsidized help on health care instead of jamming up the emergency rooms. Gene advocates lowering the Medicare age, as Hillary Clinton has said she supports, and he will also affirm the importance of the anniversary of Medicare/Medicaid.
