new stuff

i had a discussion with a classmate today about how i'm getting so charged up by this election and doing all this research and possibly making myself mad.  he said, "why we can't do anything but vote".  well after learning about the kid in colorado, blogging from his mother's house helping get palin picked, i refuse to believe i'm helpless.  i'm going to start community organizing (scoff all you want republicans although a comment in the politico said, "mrs. palin needs to be reminded that jesus was a community organizer and pontius pilate was a governor").  these are some ideas i got off of an interview on larry king and bill maher (who's podcast you can download for free!).

#1.  the republicans keep saying they are going to get government out of the way, government doesn't work.  well they have run for office then prove once they are in charge the government doesn't work well under their leadership.

government is of the people, for the people, by the people.  that's the government.  they are against us when they say they are against the government.  

#2.  while it is the governments job to defend against eminent attack, this war in iraq has been proven not to be that.  does anyone else remember they lied!

#3.  this surge may be working but it is cleaning up a mess that they made.  it's like spilling milk on the floor than finding the right rag to clean it up and saying look i cleaned up the milk.  good job guys!

#4.  john conyers health bill: (H.R. 676, the United States National Health Insurance Act. My bill would create a single payer universal health care system by strengthening and extending the Medicare program to cover all Americans) is very hopeful.  everyone who's seen sicko would agree that america should have the same kind of health coverage as cuba!  when you click the link you sign for support.

#5.  mccain's chief advisor is a lobbyist for georgia.

#6.  george bush's speech writer wrote sarah palin's campaign speech.

you must register to vote before oct 4, 5, or 6 depending on where you live.

I am so proud of you!!!! Republicans are ready to "fight." Us democrats, although we prefer to have actual intellectual conversations and take action in a calm and vigorous way, we need to step up to the plate, we must let the Republicans know that if they want a fight, we could honestly destroy them. They say outrageous lies, constantly!!! We must step up and defeat!!! Let me know anything I can do to help!!!! Peace.
