Jesse Jackson in 2008
What other past candidate for president is carrying our banner?

It is time for us to support those that brung us to the dance. Folks, we have a leader.

Who, besides Jesse Jackson helped "Break The Silence"?

2. I saw him speak during the '84 primaries.
He was one of the best political speakers I've ever seen.

10. I'd support you too, if...
You Believe. Do you believe the election was stolen, or do you still have faith in the puke's process?

6. He and David Cobb are creating a coalition party, it is in the making
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 10:20 AM by GetTheRightVote
they spoke of it at the rally in DC on Jan 6th. Stay in touch with the Rainbox coalition and the Green party and you will see it happening.

:mad:

8. When Jesse enters a room, there is an instant aura. I was
fortunate enough to be his convention whip in 88. He is a very special person who cares deeply about people, justice, and peace.

The personal scandal set him back, with respect to his political career, but it is almost like his involvement with Ohio has reincarnated him. Maybe times have changed enough for people to accept him again. Unfortunately, the repugs have charactured (is that a real verb?) him so much, it might be too much to overcome.

9. At this stage
Who deserves our attention the most? Who else, at this time is the leader we need on the issue at the forefront? Kerry? Nope. Dean, Clark, etc.? I haven't heard a peep from them about the "Stolen Election"

Jesse is da man! He's leading the charge, let's give him our support.

12. it is true
there is an energy about him, just as I had expected. He is a great person, a great leader, and a great speaker. tears in my eyes almost every time i hear him speak, especially on the election fraud issue.

13. There's the small matter (it doesn't matter to me) of Jesse having
fathered a child out-of-wedlock with a young woman a couple of years ago. The Repubs. had a field day with that one. I just think it'll ruin Jesse's chances of running for anything.

15. Running Reverand Jackson isn't about winning.

It's about fighting.

It's like putting a lightning rod on your house.

I've fought HARD for him twice and wouldn't trade-in a second of it.

I'd walk to Argentina to try it again.

16. I love Jackson. I worked on his Presidential campaign in 1988.
He would make an incredible present.
