KUCINICH: "THIS IS OUR MOMENT"
Dennis Kucinich was my first choice for the democratic nominee, but his messages were so radical (ie: we can't handle the truth), that he wasn't even allowed to speak at the MSNBC debate. While Clinton and Obama were setting a time table of 2009 for withdrawal of troops, Kucinich was advocating immediate, phased withdrawal of our troops to be replaced by international peace-keeping troops.
He was forced to drop out of the presidential race, not only because of low poll numbers, but also because the national republican party swung their support behind the opponent for his seat in Ohio. If Kucinich lost, then he couldn't be in the House to bring up pesky things like articles of impeachment.
Unfortunately, it wasn't only the diabolical republicans who are trying to silence him. IT'S OUR OWN DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERS. We all know that Nancy Pelosi dashed all of our hopes of an effective democratic House by pushing for few of the causes she was elected for. She also said the impeachment was "off the table."
Check this out from Wikipedia:
"A report suggested that representatives of Nancy Pelosi and American Israel Public Affairs Committee would "guarantee" Kucinich's re-election if he dropped his bid to impeach Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, though Kucinich denies the meeting happened."
REPUBLICANS AREN'T THE ONLY ONES PLAYING DIRTY TRICKS.
More from WIkipedia:
"Democratic leaders Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi opposed it and she announced that “she would not support a resolution calling for Bush's impeachment, saying such a move was unlikely to succeed and would be divisive."
Universal health care is also unlikely to succeed, but does that mean we shouldn't try for what is right? And as far as being divisive, don't we want to divide ourselves from the crooks who are running (and ruining) this nation and from democrats who don't have the courage to stand up to them because they're more concerned with their own political futures to raise a ruckus?
Luckily, Kucinich won his back his seat in the House of Representatives. And while Obama is on a photo-op tour of the war-torn Middle East in an attempt to look presidential, Kucinich is busting Bush and Cheney's withered balls. With your help, maybe we can even demonstrate to "democrats" like Pelosi that WE WANT JUSTICE SERVED. AND WE WON'T STOP UNTIL BUSH AND CHENEY ARE BEHIND BARS. OR AT LEAST IMPEACHED.
For christ's sake! Clinton was impeached for a blow job. This administration has sent thousands to their deaths unnecessarily and stripped US citizens of their civil liberties. Or if politics don't interest you until the price of gas goes up, well, BUSH AND CHENEY ARE OIL MEN! Two terms of them and no wonder gas prices are sky high.
In this video, Kucinich is thanking us for the support that we've given him through signing petitions, phoning representatives, making donations, etc. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? Please take the time to watch this video and if you agree with him PLEASE sign the petition. (It asks for your phone # but I did not include mine, so it's not required. You can also uncheck "I want to receive more buletins" if you like. But please watch and please sign. ASAP. Kucinich's impeachment claims will be set in motion this Friday. IE TOMORROW! And check this out. Your support may even be softening up Pelosi!
"On July 14th, 2008 Kucinich introduced a new resolution of impeachment against George W. Bush with only one count. Kucinich charged Bush of manufacturing evidence to sway public opinion in favor of the war in Iraq. Speaker Pelosi said in a CBS interview on July 14th that this resolution of impeachment should be looked at more closely."
NOW IT'S TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE THAT WE BELIEVE THAT KUCINICH IS RIGHT ON TRACK! PLEASE SIGN AND FORWARD TO ANYONE WHO HAS A BRAIN. KUCINICH MAY LOOK LIKE AN ELF, BUT HE'S THE ONE WHO IS ROARING LIKE A LION RIGHT NOW AND NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE SUPPORT.
And just for a goof, have a look at Kucinich's platforms for his '08 presidential bid. Setting up a new department for peace? Legalizing same-sex marriage? De-criminalizing marijuana? How radical! How revolutinary. How FUCKING BRILLIANT! Maybe this is the candidate we should have been paying attention to all this time.
