Debating in Two Parts

Dear Friends,

As I’m sure you are aware, last night was the first half of the Democratic Debate on NBC. We watched as 10 candidates waded out into the Presidential waters, many of whom we haven’t had the chance to get to know very well. It was fascinating!

Tonight at 9:00pm is the second half, and we cannot wait to see how the other half of the candidates fare tonight. Of course, there are a lot more well-known names so we think that tonight will have an even livelier debate.

But if you did not watch last night or cannot watch tonight, we urge you not to tune out altogether—we actually found the after-debate analysis and interviews with the candidates far more informative and telling than the debate itself.

There is an entire country of hopes and dreams that will be placed on the shoulders of whomever the Democrats pick to take on Trump and the Republicans. And you can bet that we will be following all of the primaries and the months leading up to them very closely.

And tomorrow when tonight’s debate is available to rewatch, we will update today’s newsletter to include both debates, so that you can readily access them.

Best regards,

Go Vote.

Dear Friends,

As you know, tomorrow will be historical in that for the first time ever The United States will have a woman on the ballot, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Is she perfect?

No, she is not.  No one is, especially when under the scrutiny that she has endured over the years.  But of all the candidates who are on the ballot is by far the most qualified for the position of President of the United States.

Hillary has spent her life trying to make this country better and that is why we are with her.


But that’s not entirely why we are here today.  We are also here to urge you to go vote.  Voter turn-out for Presidential Elections hovers at an appalling 50% of the population eligible to vote.  50%!  Unlike many countries where voting is mandatory, here in the United States it is not.  Thus, rather than electing officials that are a true representation of what the people want, we elect officials based on what 50% of the population wants.

If you truly don’t like the political path this country is on—and we think that was shown by the Republican shirking all their top party officials to nominate a businessman—then make the time to go vote.  Not just for President, but for Federal and State Congressman and Senators, for the Mayor of your town, for the County Judge.  It all starts with a vote—your vote.  Yes, lines will be long but isn’t it worth standing in line to have your voice heard?

We are voting at 4pm tomorrow, how about you?

Be heard.  Be a part of history.  Go vote.


Best regards,

Philip and Marilyn Langner

One Large Leap for Womankind

Dear Friends,

It looks like we are once again on the verge of history—and a giant leap forward for women in our country (since it’s already been happening in other countries!).

While nothing is finalized until the Democratic Convention in July, it appears that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Nominee for President.

This is just simply extraordinary and we couldn’t be happier or more excited that our country is on the verge of making history.

Congrats Hillary—and congrats to America for bringing forward women’s equality!

Best regards,

Philip & Marilyn
