Kerry aside for a moment , Bush & Co MUST be taught a lesson!
many of you know I am not happy with Kerry. As a peace worker since the days of Vietnam my core values are not adequately represented by Kerry or Edwards. As a resident of NC I wrote, called visited and stood in Vigil outside of Edwards local office. He gave us the cold shoulder. The fact is, I am quite angry at these guys.

BUT this a seperate issue right now, because Bush & Co MUST be punished and the first step of this accounting must be to be rejected/ejected from office!

we can look forward and begin planning on using the existing networks which came together around resisting Bush and his War(s)to pressure Kerry on foriegn policy, the PATRIOT act, trade, Kyoto etc.

Since I believe the people who want an end to empire and militarism have lost, as a golden opportunity, an opportunity that could have changed the tide was squandered by Democrats. A world in crisis is waiting for America to promote a better way. A way that promotes non-violence.
MLK was one of the greatest America has had to offer and he was cut down.
That is where we still stand.


I will still be happy to vote for Kerry because I want to send a clear message to Cowboy, Perle, Rumsfeld, The Iran Contra Reagan players, Ashcroft, Rush and all the rest.

Plan and commit war crimes? Send our sons and daughters to die for lies?
Lie, cheat, torture, kill
dismantle and undermine hundreds of environmental protections?
Rob the treasury?
hurt children?

No More, OUT!


that is the message

& rest assured many of us will hold Kerry to the same standards.

2. Bush needs a comeuppance.
As several people have pointed out, he never pays for mistakes or earns his advantages. And as James Wolcott pointed out in "Attack Poodles and Other Media Mutants," Bush and his ilk are never wrong and never apologize.

Well, never being wrong and never apologizing translates into thousands (perhaps millions) of needless deaths and a great deal of suffering. Throw the charlatans out!

4. "Bush & Co MUST be punished "
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 10:01 AM by CWebster
and here is the sad irony--the choice is to elect as an alternative, those who didn't, or don't hold Bush accountable.

How long will compartmentalizing the reality be acceptible to settle for the status quo which never advocates confronting the issue? That is just dismissed as "ideological purity" which has become as big a crime as being labeled a liberal.

6. "ideological purity"
I feel about war crimes the same way I feel about rape in the sense that they are never acceptable under any circumstance what so ever!
If that is "ideological purity" so be it.

The invasion of Iraq was criminal.
Many Democrats were complicit or refuse to step to the plate when it comes to acknowledging accountability.
Never the less, the head criminals must be taken out of office.
Let the reckoning of the accomplices and enablers which includes the media, follow.
