I am over saturated with News about how screwed up the current admin is and how some people are grumbling about Kerry already. WELL, so far Kerry is the front runner for the Democrats, and I support him because of that. If it were Dean, I would support him. If it becomes Kuchinich, I will support him too. Democrats, or rather, anti-current admin, anti-right, anti - republicans have a very important lesson to implement: we need to stick together to get rid of Bush, at all cost. Regardless of the minor imperfections of any freakin Democratic nominee, the Dems are the only party with a chance to defeat Bush. Do you agree? If you don't, and unfortunately there are many, you may be living too much in an ideolological world, ahead of the times in the U. S. And if you don't vote for the Democratic nominee , you are going to learn a hard lesson all over again. We all will. Bush number 1 taught us not to trust those kind in our govt.
Our suspicions were confirmed when Bush 2 stole the next election. Yeah, I know all about the coruption on that one! Now look how screwed our govt is. Do you really think that those SOBs are gonna roll over and give up even if they are outvoted? They must be crushed at the polls. Crushed! Crushed! This cannot be accomplished without a unified opposing front:
Dems and liberals and moderate republicans and anarchists need to stop freaking bickering about this and that!
REALIZE YOU HAVE THIS ONE OPPORTUNITY TO REMOVE BUSH. JUST THIS ONE, MAYBE!
UNITE UNITE UNITE or it will be the undoing of us all. These right wing guys are serious guys! Right wingers killed JFK, or has everyone forgotton? What is wrong with everyone's memory?
I have played hardball with the illegal tenant market (artists lofts) in Boston, up against multimillion dollar corporations and their fucking anti-people lawyers in favor of artists live-n loft rights. And just so I could afford a place as a professional photographer. But what I learned along the way applies to fighting the powers.
2 separate times I have played hardball with them (Boston Wharf Co and Beacon Realty) for a total of 14 months. Most people were chicken-shit to stand up for their rights. Some helped, but boy did I have to do spend a lot of time convincing! Let me tell you, this is not a democracy and you are hard-pressed to call on your constitutional rights, even proper tenant rights. Sitting at home whining and emailing, fantasizing about a communist America with a quasi-Communist as president will get you another 4 years of the opposite. (sorry Kuchinich supporters, he has excellent ideals but do you think the hard right will even let him on the white house lawn?) People need to get off their asses...I have met with former Senator Lynch (now in the US house of Reps) and have met Ted Kennedy, Eunice Shriver... I have been through 4 different lawyers, been part of 2 organizations for artists against illegal tenant rights abuses in Boston. THE REALITY IS THAT NO ONE GIVES A F... ABOUT THE SMALL CITIZEN. Maybe casting a vote is the only impowerment you will ever have in your entire life. Casting a vote may be the only thing the majority of citizens will ever do to try and have some say in who governs them. And casting a vote may not even be enough this time around with the Diebold machines. But if we don't stand united, against the Bush machine, WE ARE TO BLAME FOR ALL WE GET! PERIOD! MARK THESE WORDS!
STICK TOGETHER ANTI-BUSH SOLIDARITY!
