crowded as his and it actually made me feel better about it.

Then I noticed those monitors...

12. I agree 100 percent...
...and my body and soul are aching for a Gore 2008 run.

At this point, this country has two paths. One path (Gore runs) and we have
hope for the future and some sense of peace that our Constitution, our democracy,
our civil rights and our standing in the world can be restored. The next path
(Gore does not run) is that we continue down this sick, anti-American, Fascist
road where we lose absolutely everything and enter a very dark time.

The sun is starting to set, the lights are going dim and things are looking
pretty bleak.

However, Al Gore is the spark that can turn it all around and restore this
nation for us and for future generations.

I share your passion and your wish Fly. All we can do is hope and pray
that he runs. I have never felt so strongly about a political matter---ever.

16. 10,001..i say Thank You All..and TwoSparkles my sentiments are the same...
and i too feel that the sunshine this nation needs is to "Restore" Gore to the position he won and that we as a nation need to win again ..and "Restore" this nation to the place we can all be proud of again!!

For i have felt nothing but shame in the nation we are right now..

and my heart aches for what my generation is about to hand over to the next generations...of American Citizens..a destroyed Constitution, and Bill of Rights, a nation that now tortures, a nation that does not respect or regard sovereign nations their rights..a nation that takes bullying to the worst degrees and disregards diplomacy, A nation that pollutes and is destroying the environment and is destroying human rights..

We need a man /or woman with the guts to do what is right ....and who will stand up to lobbyist's, who will do the right thing instead of the popular thing...who has the balls and guts to say ..get the fuck out of my way..we will "RESTORE THIS NATION TO HER PROUDEST MOMENTS, AND WE WILL DO THE RIGHT THING!"

WE NEED SOMEONE WHO IS INTELLIGENT , WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO WORK THEIR BALLS OFF ..WHO LOVES THIS NATION..IN HER FINEST GLORY.

I DON'T WANT TO DRINK A BEER WITH THE NEXT PRESIDENT...i want to sleep at night and know we have someone competent at the helm and who respects the Constitution, and Bill of Rights ..who will protect those rights for my children and yours!

I want to "RESTORE" TRUTH AND RULE OF LAW. Al Gore is the only person i see being able to do that.

I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK ..NOT JUST FOR ME..BUT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS..Al Gore is the only person i see being able to do that.

I do not want my legacy on earth to be that I allowed the destruction of this once proud nation!!Al Gore is the only person i see being able to do that.


I pray that Al Gore will hear my call!!


Do You Hear Me AL ???????? You Are The Man!!

Run Al Run !!







Thank you all!!

38. I have a little story
Several months ago, my retired physicist/astronomer dad mentioned that he liked Biden. I didn't say much (but I think my face looked like this: x( ).

I sent him the link to the video of Al Gore's 1/16/2006 MLK Day speech, "The Rule of Law". He called me the next day and said, "By his own words, HE MUST RUN."

Guess who was at the bookstore at opening time the day 'The Assault on Reason' came out! (He arrived a day early, so had to go there twice) He bought one for himself and one for me as a surprise.

It took him about a week and a half or so to read it, he said, because "There is so much in there to reflect upon, I have to set it down to think and reflect."

I have not heard any 'Biden' (or anybody else) from him since. Only Gore.

If you have not seen this speech, you MUST. One of the most important speeches in decades, I think. Al Gore GETS IT ALL.

(only the realplayer one works... Gore starts at 10 minutes in) http://www.acslaw.org/node/2096

113. That's because people don't say they will back him up if he doesn't run
Beyond the usual soundbites and pleading, where is the backing of this man's work now? Even after his statement about civil disobedience and questioning why people aren't standing in rings around bulldozers, who will stand in those rings around bulldozers based on the merits of this planet being forever changed by our own behavior now? I don't really want to be a downer either, but he is calling on us and it doesn't seem like those only infatuated with him care to listen.

I guess it really is too boring to discuss solutions or boycotts, or other forms of civil disobedience that WE should be doing in response to his call to us, so this is what we have. And should he not run in this cycle which I don't think he will do either, what then? Will the lovey dovey posts end? Will there still be the level of support for this man and his important work for our planet if he doesn't do what certain people want him to do? Will people stand at the barricades for this planet with him regardless of his address? And what of now? Are people simply sitting and waiting for him to tell them what they want to hear? Is taking action on the climate crisis just not worthwhile unless there is political hype attached to it?

122. DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE!!
Dont tell me not to live,
Just sit and putter,
Lifes candy and the suns
A ball of butter.
Dont bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade.
Dont tell me not to fly--
Ive simply got to.
If someone takes a spill,
Its me and not you.
Who told you youre allowed
To rain on my parade!

Ill march my band out,
Ill beat my drum,
And if Im fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir.
At least I didnt fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didnt make it!
But whether Im the rose
Of sheer perfection,
Or freckle on the nose
Of lifes complexion,
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye,
I gotta fly once,
I gotta try once,
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, love is juicy,
Juicy, and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!

Get ready for me, love,
cause Im a comer,
I simply gotta march,
My hearts a drummer.
Dont bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!


Im gonna live and live now,
Get what I want--i know how,
One roll for the whole shebang,
One throw, that bell will go clang,
Eye on the target--and wham--
One shot, one gun shot, and bam--
Hey, mister GOREEEEEEEE, here I am!
Ill march my band out,
I will beat my drum,
And if Im fanned out,
Your turn at bat, sir,

At least I didnt fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didnt make it.
Get ready for me, love,
cause Im a comer,
I simply gotta march,
My hearts a drummer.
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!












RUN AL RUN!!!!!!!!

141. the simple fact is
that as urgent as the climate crisis is - and I believe it is if anything worse than thought - if we do not regain control of this country, get it back in the hands of "We the People", then no amount of blocking bulldozers is going to change things. The big corporations, primarily energy and transportation, but all who have the same attitude toward the planet as the coal operator had toward safety (it cuts into profits), will just have their gendarmes haul us away and go on their way. We will just be "eco terrorists" and the next Kent State won't bring any reaction from the authorities other than "why did you stop at four?"

In a war, you secure the beachhead, then break out into the countryside. We had at least a toe on the beach eight years ago. Gore was frustrated then by Kyoto and other setbacks, but was at least working on it. But we got pushed back offshore, and need to get a position of strength from which to fight the big battles. To his eternal credit, what Gore did was get oh-so-much better armed to fight the war and that is good. I agree that the more vocal and visible we all are, the more lip service the powers that be will pay. And that will be a start. But it won't do it. We need leadership from the top in the government. We need to regain that beachhead. Remember the expression they used to use a few decades back when there was a crippling strike? Jawboning. When a rail or air or steel strike had gone on long enough to be really impacting the economy, the president would summon the leaders to the WH and "jawbone." Give them a tongue lashing, get them to settle.

Well, when we have industries fighting green measures, sending their lobbyists to jawbone congress to leave them alone, the President should be jawboning THEM to get in line. The president can be appealling to the American people - We the People" to tell Congress what we want. He can use the bully pulpit to great advantage. He has become a master of that. He can get air time any time he wants. Even if not live, he can make statements that show up on the evening news. Why does the "weekly radio address' havee to be just weekly, just radio?

If we don't have that president, don't have that beachhead, I fear those of us who commend Gore for his great efforts and accomplishments will be with him on the outside looking in, with the occasional pail of garbage thrown out the window in our faces.

164. You won't do that without toppling the military industiral complex
And that sure isn't going to happen with just picture montages and pleas that appeal to emotionalism over reason. You don't go to the barricades for this planet now and topple that military industrial complex that has firm control over the system you are calling him to go back to, you have nothing else. To me it is as simple as that and as complex as that all at once. Begging people to run for an office already toxified by corruption and greed is not the way to get the government we deserve now. It has already been tried and proven to be a dead end. It can then can only happen if you go out of your comfort zone to do it.

That is what I believe Al Gore has been saying for months through his books, his speeches, and his actions. And ever since I read that he posed the question as to why people aren't in rings protesting I have been thinking of what my first act of peaceful civil disobedience will be... for today, it will be handing out flyers telling people to boycott EXXON and other companies that pollute this planet for profit. It is easy enough to do and I don't put myself in danger of being arrested as handing out flyers as I walk is something that doesn't require a permit and it still gets the word out. Next I may stand outside a tv station asking for truth regarding this climate crisis and in not downplaying the danger of it. I already managed to get a big local paper to do a report on being prepared for when the big hurricane hits here and what we now need to do as citizens to lighten our carbon footprint due to my many letters to my City Council which is doing something about it. From there, I don't know. But I do know this, that up until now doing things the status quo usual way regarding our environment has not done a damn thing to ensure that the CEO of America and the Congress isn't bought in some way regarding ignoring it, and there is no denying that this system has the temptation with it to make any who enter it just as apathetic to it, and Mr. Gore is not a man who wants that temptation. Thirty years of apathy has done too much damage to this planet.

I then must disagree with you (but do thank you for your civility to me) and state that Al Gore has it right now. Without the people out here being told the truth, and being educated, and being empowered, and being outraged, and going to those barrcades now in whatever way they feel they must do so peacefully, it isn't going to matter who you place as CEO of America. And that is not going to happen by mid September of this year so in my view the fantasy of him running in a toxic system that has not changed one iota with a populace that couldn't even go to those barricades for him in 2000 when it mattered most seems very unreasoned. So I choose to live in the reality of the moment especially after reading The Assault On Reason, and not give into ads or even posts like this OP which only appeals to emotionalism and not reason.

And there is no more crucial an issue right now than the sustainability of this planet. Mr. Gore knows that, I know that, and so do many others, and I support that mission and global grassroots effort with him at the helm wholeheartedly because I believe it is the only way to bring back Democracy to this country and to ensure that our children will have a brighter future. Him running in this toxic system does not ensure that yet, and as he stated it is about that truth being brought to all sides in this struggle for survival, it isn't about him. In my view, you can't have the world you want if you don't go to the barricades for it. And that is exactly what I intend to do for my child, for my planet, and for Mr. Gore because I respect his words and support him, not a notion.

Thanks again for your response.

165. I am not "calling for him to run"
Edited on Sat Aug-18-07 10:07 AM by frogcycle
But I am also not insisting that he should not. I trust his judgment on how to skin this cat.

"It has already been tried and proven to be a dead end."

Maybe, maybe not. I'll let him decide. I know damned well that if he decides he agrees with you, he'll not be sitting idly by. And i agree that all the exhortations in the world are not going to tip him one way or the other. He will decide the best means to the end.

116. I remember that, it was a whole lot of floatie hearts and a smiliepalooza,
but mostly I remember your posts on your way up to 10,000; You're a treasure trove of bookmarked details on just about any subject. I needed help when they were trying to blame 9/11 on Bill Clinton and you had everything I needed to know on the subject. I hope all your posts and your passion bring you the peace you seek in making sure the Bush Administration is held accountable for their role in 9/11 and the deaths of your co-workers and friends. Here's to 10,000 more posts and seeing W and his sneering sidekick locked up forever!!

10,000 woo hoo!! :toast: :bounce: :thumbsup: :loveya: :loveya: :grouphug:

OH SAVEAMERICA..THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WISHES AND KIND THOUGHTS!
Edited on Sat Aug-18-07 12:48 AM by flyarm
HOW SWEET OF YOU!! ..so many people here contribute so much to all of our education..we are all like part of the puzzle ..each of us has a piece, when others need additional information..we are all help teach each other what we don't know..i know each and every day ..someone here at Du is teaching me something i didn't know..what an incredible place this is!!

When i started this walk into what was going on was the very day of 9/11 ..nothing made sense to me..not one word of what this government was saying..and i began reading the internal pilots message board internally in my airline..and i was shocked at what the pilots were saying to each other..

then in operations.....when pissy pants came to Chicago to speak to the airline employees of United and American..and we all knew he was nothing but a liar and blowing smoke up asses..and it was a damn photo opp..and all of us just walked away when he was talking..because we all knew it was nothing but bullshit..

those were our dead co-workers and all that sob cared about was a damn photo op....

i knew..i knew i had to find answers...and there began my journey...it was a loney journey then..now i and others have so much company, it is touching to the heart...

I know today ..in my heart and soul..there is only one person to lead us out of this mess and to restore our democracy where it should be..and to lead us to truth...

and that person is Al Gore..of that i have not one ounce of doubt!! whenever evil has surfaced on earth there have been great leaders to lead the way to truth and honesty..i believe Al Gore is the man.

Thank you for your kind note..

I really want the Democratic Party to represent
us and not stay the course blah, blah, blah,
more tax cuts for the rich blah, blah, blah,
more money for big oil, blah, blah, blah,
becuz we'll lose votes. NO, I want the party

105. And you said it well
and expressed what so many of us are thinking and hoping for.

We need the president who was actually elected to be in the White House and that is Al Gore.

108. Al Gore HAS to run, because ...
... a very high percentage will not vote for Hillary under any circumstances;

... ditto Barack Hussein Obama, sadly, for his name and ethnicity;

... John Edwards, in my opinion, is not presidential material;

... and Al Gore IS THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB :kick: :kick: :kick:

156. Mirrera joined DU two days before you did in 11/04...N/T

Just because one doesn't post multiple times a day doesn't mean that they have just joined... Just saying.

Many of the more prolific DU posters don't have much to contribute.

I prefer to read stimulating posts that contain original thinking or non-conventional wisdom.

Both Tipper and Al Gores' once enthusiastic willingness to censor music lyrics still troubles me.

Al has come a long ways since 2000. I fear that he is just not vicious and greedy enough to thrive politically today.

Hopefully if he does end up running he will hang tough until ALL of the votes are counted correctly/accurately.

I definitely could support Gore now compared to many of the other potential 2008 Democratic presidential candidates.

126. thank you, flyarm
we need someone like Gore to fix the mess that Bush created. We need hope, and the current crop of candidates don't inspire much hope.

I'm sick of typical politicians. Just sick. When Gore says he's a lousy politician, I see that as a plus.

139. Thank You Emmadoggy!! I thought it took forever to get to 1000 and then
the next thing i knew..i checked earlier in the week and saw i was close to 10,000 and i thought ..holy cow! how did that happen??

AND WHEN IT GOT TO 9,999 i PAUSED FOR 2 DAYS ALMOST..THINKING ABOUT WHAT I WANTED TO SAY ..AND I REALLY THOUGHT ..WHAT ARE MY HOPES AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF THE MISERY OF LITTLE LORD PISSY PANTS...

and i pondered..what are my dreams for this country...and what could bring about those hopes and dreams...

and my heart and mind and soul kept saying...




and i knew ..this is all i wanted to say..this is my hope..this is my dream for this country...this is what will free my soul from the worry ...

this man ..who i will help every way i can..

this nation needs Al Gore..that says it all to me..

this is this man's time..and we need him ..we all need him..the world needs him!!


welcome to DU Emmadoggy..we are glad to have you in the DU family!!

145. Thanks Fly!
I've been here for quite a while now and spend so much time here on a (usually) daily basis that it's embarassing(!) - I just don't post a lot. But I'll get there eventually. :)

As for everything you said about Al in your reply to me....all I can say is a huge, big, fat, resounding DITTO

Suffice it to say that if he runs, I will be filled with renewed hope for our nation and the world. If he doesn't....well, there won't be a whole lot of hope. His time is NOW. There will never be a better time than right now. He is the medicine we need to cure us of this horrible infection we've been ailing with and the inoculation we need to protect us against future infections. He has the strength, vision, and knowledge to be the one to rally the world to protect our Earth. We need him like a thirsting man in the desert needs water!

PLEASE, AL!! For my children!!!

Thanks again for this wonderful thread, Fly! :hug: :pals: :yourock:

152. Destiny.
President Gore, You Have a Date With Destiny
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/8/17/20730/1624

<snip>
Destiny denied you the Presidency in 2000, because destiny was saving you for when you were really needed. Destiny seems to have led you on the quest to save the planet that you have so very nobly begun. Destiny has transformed you from the man you were then to the man you are now. Destiny has supplied you with an army of supporters and admirers who will work their fingers to the bone and dig holes in their pockets to support your work and your candidacy. We are all of us waiting for someone to stand up, to rally us, to point the way. For someone to say that there IS a way, that we CAN do this. Just point the way, and the country and the world will rise up to follow your direction. Destiny has made you into the man our country needs to lead us, the man the world needs, the man the planet needs.
<snip>

We need YOU, President Gore. Destiny is calling. All you have to do is answer, and we will answer too!

Gore needs to run. He has great ideas and if he wants to see them through he has to be in the Oval Office. These other candidates aren't going to listen to him, they have their own agendas.
