WRITERS’ STRIKE PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES:  Think!  Instead of Watching Reruns—Change the World:  Day 2 

By Kevin A. Stoda

 Suggestion #2:  Clean House, Senate, and White House  

Well, I as I indicated yesterday--I am not saddened by the writers’ strike. 

As badly as the U.S. status quo has been allowing the distortion of American politics, the justice system, & social balances (between rich and poor), it is about time that every individual run for office and demand a house-cleaning in 2008 and 2009. 

 

This means that instead of watching news of the writers’ strike and bad reruns of bad sit-coms, Americans should take a half-hour (or more) each day to candidate for either themselves, for a loved one, or for a decent-candidate for congress, senate or president.

  GO KUCINICH GO 

Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich’s (OH-Rep) recent article, IT’S TIME TO IMPEACH CHENEY at http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_dennis_k_071105_it_s_time_to_impeach.htm

is a great motivating tool for all those slackers and nay-sayers who think the time to impeach war criminals is a concept whose time has passed. 

 

Either [a] close down the government in the coming weeks--by crashing the internet, fax machines and phone lines--or [b] support in a big way Mr. Dennis Kucinich and other candidates who are willing to both run for office and to seek the impeachments of Cheney--and then Bush--before these bullies and their cronies take us to other regional wars, like in Iran, Turkey or Pakistan.

 

Kucinich is running his campaign primarily on the issue of reinstating constitutional democracy in America.  Check out and consider the other issues he raises at: http://www.dennis4president.com/go/issues/    This site also talks about what needs to be done to get Impeachment NOW.  

 

Most admirable about Kucinich has been the fact that he has consistently voted against the war-mongering that has bamboozled other congressmen and senators for too long.

  RUN RICHARDSON RUN 

Bill Richardson (NM-Gov) is running on many of the same key issues that should already have 10s millions of  Americans in the streets each week. 

Richardson wants to end the war in Iraq as fast as possible, too, and he wants better relations with most countries in the world as the number one aim of America’s foreign policy—i.e. not making wars and sending the U.S. economy and lives of its citizens into graves via the process of Imperialism, i.e. throwing a bomb and watching it go—“ooohing and aahhing” like children with sparklers or bottle rockets (or FOX News likes to do).

 Don’t ignore the facts:  850 American soldiers have died already in Iraq this year—the highest number in 4 years.  We have got to get out of the quagmire! 

Richardson, whose issue website is at http://www.richardsonforpresident.com/issues/  , is one of the most likely candidates to get the spending priorities and jobs-creation activities of the federal government churning as he  seeks to have good relations with neighbors to the South--while building at the same time building a sane economy and return to constitutional law in the USA.  

  WHY NOT HAVE A RICHARDSON-KUCINICH TICKET? 

We would certainly have one of the most solid presidential election tickets in recent history if we would offer a Kucinich-Richardson ticket (or visa versa) for the presidency this coming year.  One good candidate from New Mexico and the other from Ohio would wow the pollsters.  It would also wake up the status-quo media who ignore these two candidates regularly.

 

Since over 50% of Americans potentially oppose a Clinton nomination, it is time for a much better set of candidates and partnership be set up and discussed early.  Then, we could vote for them both in the democratic primaries and knock out everyone else.

 

If that doesn’t seem workable, let them create an alliance now and run as THE OPPOSITION.

 

If the Democratic Party doesn’t accept these best two candidates, the duo could nevertheless build a progressive machine that could still go out and collect 33% or more of the presidential vote. (Compared to Clinton or anyone that the Republican Party has put up so far, an early declared Richardson-tied-to-Kucinich ticket would shift the whole election in the directions Progressives need it to be.)
