Saving America by Losing Elections Perhaps the greatest irony of our time will become obvious when citizens finally realize that to save our country they will have to be willing to lose elections┬ů maybe quite a few of them.

On Scooter Libby and the Fourth of July And if you haven't the courage to tell the truth, or the consciousness to honor the truth, or the love to love the truth, then one day you will not have the truth to tell, and soon thereafter you will not live in a place that will acknowledge the truth when it is told, and not long after that the truth will not be told for it will no longer be allowed.

On God and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights When you love God you are fearless, but you do not practice war; you are fearless in your love for others. You are not afraid of ideas and you are not afraid of the truth or your own ignorance.

No Such Thing as a Spoiler Since Clinton and Obama both agree that there's no such thing as a "spoiler" it would be fitting, proper, courageous, and right for both of these candidates to defend the right of non-party candidates, such as Ralph Nader and others, to have their voices heard during this campaign.

Who has time for such naivete? What we need is a fundamental paradigm shift.

Time out for a moment of paranoia Traffic at my personal website has over the years steadily increased. I get statistics from my web host as to where the traffic comes from. I can't see who is coming to my site, only in what country the visitors reside. Now traffic from one country has stopped entirely. I'm wondering why.

Time's a Wasting... If all we do is rant and rave for another 16 months, when election day comes we will have no choice but to put back in office the same people we put there last time... and then what? Same-O, Same-O. How do you expect things to change if we don't change things and if we don't change?

Why Kucinish was Wrong to File Articles of Impeachment Against Cheney Now let me say in his defense that he, at least, has more courage than most of his colleagues.

Yahoo says it had no choice Do not blame corporations, when individual human beings value money over education, profits over honor, and success over decency.

Guantanamo Comes to Main Street U.S.A. Our silence and indifference to the plight of others is what allows this kind of thing to happen. You probably won't get a better wake up call than this. No doubt bad public relations will force this kind of evidence into dark corners. The question is, will we wake up, or will we remain silent until something like this happens to someone we know and care about... or maybe to a lot of people we know and care about?

To surge or not to surge None of the talking heads in the US media or government are addressing the central issue, which is this: can you build, keep, and/or inspire democracy in a first world country, or in a third world country, by lying to and cheating its people or by undermining its Constitution and the rule of law?

State of the Union: a defeated nation The war I have been fighting has nothing to do with terrorists. But the war is about who will win: the people who continue to honor and hold sacred the Constitution and the rule of law or those who do not. Those who do not have won.

Be Strong, Be Yourself If you keep these thoughts in mind as you plan your strategy for participation, I think whatever you do will make a difference. Discard any strategy that does not support or is inconsistent with the overall context of what has been expressed. Success will require courage, determination, imagination, goodwill, tolerance and heart. You are capable of this. We need each other and we need to express the best that's in us.

Simple Strategy for Deciding Who to Vote For If they haven't been doing what you think they should have been doing all along... as citizens and/or as public servants, you can be pretty well sure you will feel the same way 5 years from now.
