I lack optimism while writing this because those who are willing to let Bush skate free for his war crimes and treason are legion and they are well-funded.
I’m very glad to see rjones2818’s frequent updates on Kucinich’s campaign. If not for Kucinich, we’d be deprived of even a glimmer of hope for justice in a very dark period of time.
I’ve re-formatted the list of Kucinich position statements from rjones’ diary above. I want to make it as convenient as possible for people who won’t support Kucinich to know exactly what it is they’re not supporting.
There’s one other thing which is a more immediate concern than great and detailed vision Kucinich has. It’s about protecting our freedom and our constitution from a traitor. Kucinich is the spear-head on impeachment.
My time is precious to me.
I feel burned by my experience as a “netroots” activist. I could have spent earning money to spend on my family.
The only thing which could make me feel that my efforts were not wasted is if Bush is impeached.
If we get a milquetoast DINO who covers up for Bush’s war crimes, I’ll be very disappointed, yet relieved that we don’t have an apocalypse-seeking, delusional Republican crusader.
The outcome of a Democratic victory in 2008 without impeachment will cause me to withdraw from participation with the so-called “netroots” for a long while.
Instead, I’ll focus on earning money.
I’ll earn my money honestly, not like the weasels who are pretending to “crash the gates” while they’re actually working for the gate-keepers to protect the corrupt King George from the wrath of the peasant revolt.
