As you’ve probably read by now, Cindy Sheehan has announced that if Senator Pelosi hasn’t done something, like file papers to impeach the Rogue President and his #1 Flying Monkey by July 23rd, that she’s going to run against Pelosi for her seat in Congress.
Do I think she has a chance in hell of winning? Um..no, I don’t. No, what Cindy Sheehan is doing here is holding the powers that be ACCOUNTABLE for something. She’s standing up and doing all in her power to put a stop to this insanely out of control White House. She’s doing what most of us and certainly our Senators and Congress persons won’t do. She’s putting it on the line for what is right. I believe that history will judge not only the Bush regime for what it has done, but it will judge us for what we have not done. I don’t know why our representatives are so cowardly and afraid of the Bushies. Perhaps that isn’t the reason for their reluctance. Perhaps they’re holding back out of political expedience. After all, there is an old saying that if your enemy is drowning, don’t throw him a life preserver. Or something like that. Whatever. The point is that a lot of people are dying in the mean time. Our soldiers deserve better than that. And if political expedience is behind the Dems foot dragging, then they’re more evil than Cheneybush.
So what can we, the people, do? What is our role to play?
Well, we all have Senators and Congress people who are there to REPRESENT US. They have to hear from us as individuals. We can’t just go along and blog and chatter away amongst ourselves. We can’t just laugh at Stewart and Maher and just let it slide. We have to get off of our asses and write letters and make phone calls and PARTICIPATE. Now is the time to be counted. I’ve written to Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and Congressman Howard Berman and made it clear what I think and believe. Have you?
I’ll make it real easy for you. Go to this link and WRITE LETTERS. They can’t ignore us if we shout it at them that we WILL HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE TO *US*
Here’s the link:
Use it. Do it.
The world is watching us.
History will judge us.
