We need to share info about home (Minnesota) here on DU so we can
stop the baggers from destroying any more of MN than they already have. I used to lobby all the time for several causes that I am committed to but in fighting the national fight here I have lost tract of what is going on at home.

What I am suggesting is that we use DU-MN to call for action to back Dayton and our other Democrats that are left in MN. This would be different than the core DU post in that it would pertain the MN and we could come here to look for things that we need to work for our own state. This would also be a good idea for other states.

1. We need to consistently publicize the details of what the Republican legislature is up to.
They've been very busy lately, and I don't mean creatin' jobs. Having a Democratic governor with a veto pen is reassuring, but we can't afford to let that lull us into inaction.

2. Is there a Senator candidate who would
call for an investigation into the treatment of Bradley Manning and call for his immediate release?

call for the closing of Guantanamo immediately

Call to bring our troops, contractors and all personnel home from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan.

Call for an immediate investigation and persecution of those who authored, ordered and participate in torture.

Call for an end to the Military Commissions Act.


Call for a cut of 50% to the Pentagon's Budget

Call for a Church type investigation of War Profiting

Call for immediate in depth blood test of troops and contractors coming home for Depleted Uranium testing unlike the inaccurate urine test that happens now

... I could go on.
