Call for Changes to SiriusXM Left station-IDs/ads

Click logo to sign petition

To Listeners of SiriusXM Left satellite-radio channel (Sirius/XM 127)

Currently, if any sound-bite is used in an on-air ad or station-ID for SiriusXM Left, it is invariably  something taken from one of President Barack Obama’s recent speeches, press-conferences, etc. 

Obama, however, is not the sole spokesperson or representative of the U.S. left/liberal/progressive political movement.  In fact, many of us have come to believe that Obama does not wish to represent our viewpoints in any significant way on any significant issues (war/international-relations, the economy, taxation, education, civil rights/liberties, healthcare, etc.)

Shawn Poole

We propose using a new collection of sound-bites that still may include the occasional appropriate Obama quotation but, more importantly, would be expanded greatly to include many more statements issued by various well-known (and perhaps some not-so-well-known) activists/speakers/leaders from the U.S. left/liberal/progressive section of the political spectrum, both past and present.
