Open Letter to all Progressives--We Need Action. June

There were two people I wanted to see go down in defeat
during the primaries for the democrats, Blanche Lincoln, (D-Ark) and the
wicked witch from the west, Jane Harman. They came close to being
defeated but the establishment wanted the status quo and now we have a
problem. I have a suggestion that will put me at odds with most
democrats but will come about someday.

I want all of the
supporters of Marcy Winograd (D-36-Ca) and Lt. Governor Bill Halter
(D-Ark) to vote third party and not support the democratic candidate
even if it means losing those seats to the Republicans. Why settle for a
cheap copy when you can have a real criminal to run against in
2012-14-16. When Harman and Lincoln lose, the real progressives should
tell the dems, screw with us and you will lose the seat in the general
election. That would scare the hell out of the bosses. What usually
happens is that we say we can't vote for a republican so we vote for a
Harman; it is not working for us folks, let's try something new. Sit on
you hands or vote third party and watch the expression on the faces of
the DLC creeps like **bill clinton, who went down to Arkansas and
campaigned against the unions and for Lincoln. It is time, but do you
have the balls to do it, we will take heat until it happens and then and
only then will the corporate dems come around and ask for our help.
Now they think that we have no place to go, we do. We often talk, write
about the spineless democrats in DC, but I tell ya we, as a voting
block, are also without courage. Many of you belong to a large part of
the democratic party who want to vote for a candidate who will work to
stop the wars/occupations, bring real medical care to all, jobs and more
jobs in a clean environment. So, "Want to take a Ride?"

pass this along if you agree, we will be called heretics but may help
get real progressives into office.

Short Bio I was born in Brooklyn, New York in May of 1942. My first memory was the wonderful block parties that celebrated the end of WW2. I don't remember much but it was exciting and I could see how joyous people could be during a major (more...)
