i say we elect him

as president- of america

"When I asked Dr. Reisner, the son of Holocaust survivors, why he would want to head the organization that he has battled for several years, he told me: “If I have this opportunity to make a change, I have a responsibility to do it. I never had the intention of being involved, but the only way to ensure this be changed was by claiming the democratic process in the name of human rights and social-justice issues. I was hoping that mass withholding of dues and mass resignations would shame the APA to come to its senses. It made them take a big step but didn’t go far enough.”

He expanded: “American people are sick of the reputation of the United States as torturers, as people who abuse prisoners. American people want to see a restoration of values from war to health care. I think what happens in the APA should point to a direction for the whole country.”

There is no shame today. It is worn as a badge of courage and accomplishment. He is right, the only way is to get involved!

It's nice to see persons of common sense, taking on leadership roles for a change.

I know personally Dr Steven Miles, who has done work, against health professionals being involved with torture.

"At the heart of the election is a raging debate over torture and interrogations. "
As "one", I can tell you that bunch of fucking idiots have raging debates over some of the most asinine shit you ever heard of. A raging debate over torture. Like how much is good enough? This from professionals trained and dedicated to healing your mental wounds, understand! They do tend to get lost in the forest of ego's.:)
