Alan Grayson says he's in, he's running. And he told me something when I interviewed him two weeks ago that makes me confident this liberal lion is going to kick ass in the next election.

First, read what Grayson has announced, and then, I'll tell you what he told me that makes me confident  he'll kick ass.

Grayson wrote:

I'm in.  I'm running for Congress.

I'm running because I promised Charlaina and Rick that I would.  Charlaina called me a few weeks ago, from the hospital.  She told me that her husband, Rick, was suffering from multiple organ failure -- lungs, kidneys and liver.

Rick was 56 years old.  That's three years older than me.

Rick was a veteran.  But the Veterans Administration wasn't covering his hospital bills.

Rick had had a bad liver since he was 30, when he contracted hepatitis.  No insurance company would go near him.

Every day Rick survived, his family owed several thousand dollars more to hospitals and doctors.  And they had no way to pay it.

I told Charlaina how sorry I was.  And I told her that I wasn't in Congress anymore, so I wasn't sure how I could help.

She said: "You can run again."

"You are the only person who ever cared about people like us.  Rick wants people in Congress who can't be bought and sold.  Rick wants you to run again."

A dying man wants me to run for Congress.  What exactly could I say?

I promised that I would run.

Rick died on June 30, 2011, at 5:55 p.m.

I'm keeping my promise.   I'm in.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
