There is a single Congressman who has spoken out against the assault on Gaza

Keith Ellison, who called on both sides to have an immediate ceasefire on Friday -- when most of Congress was endorsing one-sided resolutions to keep the war going.

I urge you to donate to him. We need Keith in Congress to stop the bloodshed and promote peace for all.

5. He's outside, telling those damn kids to stay off of his lawn.



Then, he has to hurry off to Denny's for the Early Bird Meal.

3. Keith is fair and balanced

 

Keith surrounds himself with people from diverse backgrounds and this keeps him balanced. His staff includes Jews,Christians and Muslims as well as many other diverse people. A good and decent man who really cares about the people he represents. Minnesota is well represented by him.Thanks, Keith

4. Maximum respect for Keith Ellison.

We can assume AIPAC will try to primary him now-and get a total lackey in in his place.

9. So few of our modern politicians have any courage.

They are, for the most part, professional politicians more concerned with job security and increasing their benefits than with doing the RIGHT thing.

Funny thing, Minnesota seems to produce a good percentage of the few with the courage to LEAD.

KUDOS to Keith Ellison and Minnesota!


"There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans."

10. I don't think my representative even knows where Gaza is.

But she supports Israel. Kristi Noem (R-SD).
