Welcome to European and Mediterranean Americans for Obama
European and Mediterranean Americans (sometimes known as Ethnic Americans) for Obama are Americans of varied backgrounds – from the newly naturalized citizen building a family and laying down roots to the fourth-generation family in the US with ties and heritage connected to the land of our ancestors. New Polish-American citizens in Toledo, Irish-Americans in Scranton, Italian-Americans in greater Detroit – these are just some of the stories of American families, stories of resounding hope and affirmation in the American dream – and it is Barack Obama’s story as well.
We are proud of our heritage, recognizing that our collective differences make up the rich and colorful fabric of American society. We are proud of a country that allows us to celebrate our own customs while giving us endless opportunities. It’s a country that allows our children and grandchildren, through their hard work and determination, to achieve heights previously unimaginable.
But, like so many Americans, we’ve been profoundly disappointed by the failed policies driven by George Bush over the past eight years. We’ve watched the land of advancement that lured our forefathers become one of stalled progress – our wages declining, our public schools struggling, and our neighborhoods eroding.
From our many backgrounds, we are unified behind a single goal: to work alongside Barack Obama to restore the promise of our nation – a nation that combines our many roots into collective strength — and give Americans of all backgrounds the opportunity to achieve the American Dream. Let us be true to that great American motto: E Pluribus Unum – out of many, one.
