It is about old people who can’t pay for medicine. This election is not about the Olympic torch. It is about the civil rights laws that opened athletics to women and minorities who won those gold medals. This election is not about sending a teacher into space. It is about improving teaching and learning here on earth. This election is not about the size of my opponent’s crowds. It is about the size of his deficits. This election is not about Republicans sending hecklers to my rallies. It is about Jerry Falwell picking Justices for the Supreme Court. This election is not about my standing in the polls. It is about my stand against the illegal war in Nicaragua. This election is not about slogans, like “standing tall.” It is about specifics, like the nuclear freeze because if those weapons go off, no one will be left standing at all.” -Walter F. Mondale “Our faith that we can shape a better future is what the American dream is all about. The promise of our country is that the rules are fair. And if you work hard and play by the rules, you can earn your share of American’s blessings. By electing an American woman to our nation’s second highest office, you send a powerful signal to all Americans. There are no doors we cannot unlock. We will place no limits on achievement. This fall, we reclaim our dream. We’re going to make the rules of American life work fairly for all Americans again.” Geraldine Ferraro Pho tos by Ka re n Dic key Jo hnson The Mondale-Ferraro ticket provides Americans with a clear alternative to the unfair policies of a Republican administration that has mortgaged the nation’s future with massive budget deficits, inflicted drastic budget cuts on low and middle income households while providing enormous tax breaks for the rich, and neglected those people who need government’s support the most: the unemployed, the elderly, minorities, and our children. Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro are eager to lead America into a better future, a future of prosperity, equality, and security. Above all, they are dedicated to the Democratic ideal that government should work for all the people, not just the powerful and privileged.
