Most Democrats in Congress have shown themselves to be spineless and useless. But we can't give up. One thing we CAN do is organize to replace the Spineless Dems with Fighting Dems in the '08 primaries.
The Democratic Congress is devolving into a spineless, shameless gang of do-nothings. No impeachment. No end to the war. No assertion of equal status with the Executive. No enforcement of subpoenas. Pulling back on investigations, avoiding investigations entirely on 911 and the run-up to the war. No meaningful action on election fraud. No action on public funding of elections.
We can't give up. One thing we CAN do is organize to replace the Spineless Dems with Fighting Dems in the '08 primaries.
Do your Senators and Representative support the impeachment of Bush and Cheney? Cutting off funds for the war (by simply not putting a bill up for a vote)? Vigorous investigations, and jail for anyone who ignores a Congressional subpoena? Banning electronic voting machines? If not, organize to replace a coward with a fighter!
FIGHTING DEMS IN '08!
A former visitant of UC Santa Cruz, former union boilermaker, ex-Marine, Vietnam vet, anti-war activist, dilettante in science with an earth-shaking theory on the nature of light (which no one will consider), philosopher in the tradition of Schelling, Hegel, Merleau-Ponty, Marx, and Fromm (sigh, no one listens to me on that either), author of a book on wine clubs (ahem), and cast-off programmer of ancient computer languages.
I've recently had two physics articles published in an obscure but earnest Central European journal (European Scientific Journal http://www.eujournal.org/index.php/esj) but my main interests remain politics and philosophy.
