partial transcript
US Air Force Col Robert Bowman:

I want to start with a scary thought: Can you imagine what would have happened if George W. Bush had been President during the Cuban missile Crisis.

You people who are out here protesting, you are the shock troops battling to preserve our cherished freedoms. You know our freedoms are not under attack from the remnants of Saddam Husseins Bathist Party. Theyre under attack by the likes of John Ashcroft. Theyre trampled by Donald Rumsfeld, theyre disdained by Dick Cheney, and theyre not even understood by George W. Bush.

The battle to preserve our freedoms is not taking place in Baghdad and Tikrit and Falluja. Its taking place in peace marches and demonstrations in Ghiradeli Park in San Francisco, in Memorial Park in Oklahoma City, and in Lafayette Park in Washington, DC.

The front lines are right here. You are preserving our cherished freedoms by exercising them in spite of ridicule and opposition. The battle to preserve our freedoms is you.

You are the foot soldiers protecting our civil rights.

You are the Minutemen sounding the alarm against tyranny.

You are upholding the spirit of the American Revolution.

You are preserving the freedoms that the troops in the desert have a right to come back to.

The troops getting shot at in Iraq are not protecting us, we are protecting them and their honor and their freedom. We my sisters and brothers are protecting this nation by speaking truth to power.

Were speaking truth to a pack of liars.

We must do it loudly and fearlessly and courageously and joyfully, for we are the Patriots. And when we speak, this is the truth that we proclaim:

This war in Iraq has nothing to do with National Security or freedom or democracy or human rights or protecting our allies or weapons of mass destruction or defeating terrorism or disarming Iraq. It has to do with money, it has to do with oil, and it has to do with raw imperial power. And its based totally on lies.

Those that forced this war on an unwilling world are guilty of violating the US Constitution, the UN Charter, the Nuremburg Principles and International Law. What they have done is illegal, immoral, unconstitutional and treason!

Before this war started, we knew it would fracture NATO, split the United Nations, seperate us from our allies destroy the great nation we inherited from our fathers who died in World War II, and it has.

We knew it would make our beloved country feared and hated and outcast among the world community, a pariah among the peoples and the number one rogue nation on Earth, and it has.

This is nothing but treason.

-----------
These are the kind of people we need to take back congress!

Dr. Bob Bowman, while running as a Democrat, is pledged to serve the needs of his constituents and the American people, not the lobbyists or big money interests, nor even the partys leadership. Fiercely independent, Dr. Bob is part of a national campaign to Take Back America by electing a Citizens Congress pledged to serve the people. His main issues are (1) End the Iraq War. He supports the call of Congressman Jack Murtha and the U.S. Roman Catholic Bishops for a rapid, responsible withdrawal. (2) Provide Health Care for all. Dr. Bob wants to get the insurance companies out of health care and have a doctor-run Single-Payer National Health Program. (3) Assure financial security for American families. Quit exporting jobs and provide good jobs at a living wage for all Americans.


He needs signatures if anyone in Florida wants to help out
*we need to collect 5,000 signatures to get Dr. Bob on the ballot before March 31! Please print the petition below and mail to:
