Today is the 'Kucinich Money Bomb'

    Please donate! Kucinich has overwhelming support among Democratic activists and among the general population in polls that ask them solely about the issues. Let's help turn these factors, which should in a true democracy guarantee him to be elected, into an actual progressive electoral victory.

Below you will see a message I have been leaving at various places but first would like to observe that Paul supporters often see the problem but are distrustful of actual humans, both their motives and capabilities, and human laws to restrict and guide people in government. Therefore, they put their faith in some ethereal force of the market. It stems from a feeling of helplessness in the face of real political problems more than a real sense that they can go it alone. It is essentially a negative response to our out of control government and economy. Kucinich could lead these people of they only had the guts to trust. This, of course, is the problem Kucinich has with all cynics, of whatever party. As unworkable as Ron Paul’s answers are to today’s problem, I least they don’t seem to entail trusting others, just mysterious forces that are being somehow being defeated by ??? Anyway, good blog and vid but my purpose for visiting your site is below.

I have come to your site via 35%ers to ask all of you ( as have bluegal last week) to use whatever influence you have to push the Alist bloggers to make as much an effort to support Wexler’s petition as they did to goad/support Dodd and the FISA filibuster. As on this evening, Wexler’s Impeachment petition has over 129,000 signups, all without a major push on the blogs. Wexler’s goal is 250K but I think if the left blogosphere were to make it a priority, one million signature before Jan8, 08 (when the Judiciary Committee returns to business) is very possible. That would be the kind of outcry that Pelosi and Conyers could not ignore. I am just a lowly commenter, and, therefore I have found, of no consequence, to the A-listers. That’s fine, I have no personal sense of importance about this but do think that impeaching cheney is the first step in returning to a democracy. I am, of course, aware that hearings and trial would increase Dennis’s visibility but that is only a side benefit, not an ulterior motive. At any rate, I hope you will get behind an effort to get all lefty blogs to link Wexler’s petition daily and request their readers to sign up if they haven’t yet done so. Glenn Greenwald credits a few blogger with getting together to push for Dodd to hold and the filibuster FISA resulting in 500K emails in just a few day. Think how effective a similar effort would be wrt Impeachment. Thanks for anything you can do, Merry Christmas and Go Dennis!
