Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Vic Meyers is fired up in his run for Congress in Colorado's 4th Congressional District
We've covered Democratic Candidate in the now-open race in Colorado's 4th Congressional District, Vic Meyers, a few times before, both through one of his campaign events and for a full, in-depth interview with him on the issues.

Now Vic Meyers is releasing his first campaign video on where he stands on the issues.  Below the fold is Meyers speaking at his ranch and directly at the camera in frank terms on why he's running for Congress:

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).


Hi, I'm Vic Myers from Trinidad and I'm running represent Colorado's 4th
Congressional District.  

I'm a husband father, a working man and a veteran.  Like you, the economic recovery hasn't quite reached me.  That's why last fall I had to sell my horse Gypsy.  I was thinking about Gypsy the other day and I realize that sending Republicans back to Congress is kinda like having a saddle with no horse.  See, it just won’t take you anywhere.  For some reason, the Republicans seem to think that a place called Benghazi is more important to this district than social security, being protected, and immigration reform, infrastructure investment, and ironically, our veterans.  

But if you’ll elect me, send me to Congress, I’ll fight against implementing Chained CPI and cutting benefits from our social security beneficiaries.  I’ll fight to make sure immigration reform is passed.  I’ll fight for infrastructure investment, rail, bridges, roads, digital, and especially wind and solar so that we can bring jobs and living wages back to this district.  We can give our small towns and family farms a chance to survive for another generation.

Finally, as a veteran myself, as the son and grandson of a veteran and as the father of the future veteran, I’ll honor the service and the sacrifice that our young men and women are giving every day.  I’ll hope you support me.

(Vic Meyers jumps on saddle)

Nope!  Just doesn’t work.

So it is apparent and clear from this video that Vic Meyers confirms he's a progressive Democrat but also is an underdog and a working person who has had his shares of struggles like everyone else in the process of the economic recovery post-Great Recession.

For more insight on Meyers, you can read our interview with him here where we asked him a number of questions and got pretty much direct answers:
