All over the internet i hear the same refrain- dennis kucinich or chris dodd would make a great president- but he doesn’t have a chance. Why? Aren’t you going to vote for him? If all of us who aren’t voting for clinton or obama or edwards- voted for kucinich or dodd- why wouldn’t they win? We talk about wanting change ad nauseum around the blogosphere- but it won’t come unless we make it happen. Take the time- learn about the candidates- vote for change- and don’t buy into the money machine. We saw it happen in 2006. the rethuglicans out monied the dems in some states by a large margin and got their asses handed to them. If we have to do it to our own party, hey that’s the way democracy works. Don’t just vote for the big three blindly. Get to know all of the other candidates. Dodd’s stand on restoring habeas corpus and the constitution sounds good to me. Kucinich’s voting record has checked out with me for at least a decade- i looked it up. Both men seem honest and intelligent- which is what we NEED!!!! not the fucking faith and family values bullshit that is forced down our throats at every turn. I want a candidate who isn’t afraid to stand up for a woman’s right to choose; a gay couple’s right to marry; the right of this country to have its constitution back and intact; the end to the quagmire in the middle east and a restoration of diplomacy. I am not getting that vibe from the status quo, plastic frontrunners. Take a look- and vote for your country.
