We were watching the political fireworks last night and kept asking ourselves:
Who is going to stand against the corporate takeover of our democracy?
Who is going to stand against nuclear power?
Who is going to stand for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney?
Who is going to stand for cutting the bloated, wasteful, ever-expanding military budget?
Who is going to stand for a Palestine free from U.S./Israeli military domination?
Who is going to stand for an aggressive crackdown on corporate crime?
Who is going to stand for the repeal of the anti-union Taft Hartley law?
Who is going to stand up to health insurance industry and for a single-payer, Medicare for all, Canadian-style health care system?
We watched closely last night, and didn’t notice anyone standing for any of this.
Within the coming days, Ralph Nader will decide whether or not to throw his hat into the ring.
We’re still exploring.
But time is running short.
Please, help us spread the word about our exploratory effort.
And give as generously as you can.
Thank you for your ongoing support and activism.
