No More Pretending To Support My Dem Senator.

Fellow Floridians and Citizens in Deleware, South Dakota, Louisanna, New Jersey, Conneticut, Nebraska, Arkansas, and Colorado:

I can no longer even pretend to support my "Democrat" Senator (Bill Nelson, FL). And I am asking you to check out any, ANY other candidate running in your states Senatorial Election.

Here in Florida we have Brian Moore Independent candidate for U.S. Senate.

Tonight, our "Democratic" Senators in 8 states voted with the Republican with a YEA for TORTURE granting this President and his administration a virtual "free pass" to torture, suspend habeas corpus, with a retroactive clause to protect him from prosecution for war crimes. This bill provides NO LEGAL PROTECTIONS to American Citizens.

Mine and Yours, they voted like Lieberman, like Martinez, like Santorum. How could we still consider them Democratic? I MUST vote for Brian Moore, you MUST vote for your independent candidates.

Here in Florida, there is an alternative to Senator Nelson and his good friend Kathrine Harris. The Vote alike Twins. The House Twin and The Senate Twin. Well, here's the thing....

Of all the catastrophic votes that Nelson has made THIS, THIS, is inexcusable. Torture?! Suspension of Habeas?! Legalized Brutality?!

We have a choice. We must vote our morals, our values. We must vote for our soldiers, we must vote for our poor, our bankrupt, our children's future and for peace. If we still want to be considered Americans then we'd damn well better vote like Americans.

We must vote for Brian Moore here in Florida. YOU must find, support, and vote for any independent candidate in your state. Give it some deep thought. Put your heart into your decision. And make the right choice. Support YOUR independent candidate. I've got Brian Moore, Please check out his website (,.

For once, don't swallow the Dem Party S**T.
VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE as if your life depended on it because it does.

When the Democratic Party has absolutly no respect for the voters, when our elected Dems have no respect for their constituents, voting for a Democrat is not just the lesser of two evils, it IS evil.

I'm always asked "But what can I do". Well, when you're done screaming and tearing your burning hair out (I'm just about done with that), CALLl (don't write or e-mail) CALL the editor of your local newspaper. Leave messages if necessary. CALL the News Director at your local TV outlet. Leave messages if necessary. CALL every radio station you know of, even the right wingers. Ask to speak to the Station Manager. Don't even bother trying to get "on air". Leave messages if you have to.

Go to and try to participate OCTOBER 5th in over 100 cities across American. Join in the last MASS PROTEST before the election. And perhaps the last Mass Protest this administration will allow.
