Ok, maybe you are a realist. Maybe you think that the most important thing is defeating the opposition and think it's like throwing a vote away to support a true left candidate. Maybe you have mixed feelings about lofty concerns like establishing a cabinet level peace department where the people we elect work for us instead of using us and seek alternatives to resource aggression. Maybe you think that's the stuff of "pipe" dreams and drum circles. (for the record, I like drum circles!) Maybe you think that real energy policy will never happen, or maybe you aren't even sure what to believe about the planet, the economy, the war, or the future. Maybe you are just in a rut, and want to disengage because you think it doesn't freakin matter anyway. Well we have to keep ourselves in the equation. When will we see people pound the pavement for peace as much as they do for bigotry? Where's the accountability, where's the outrage?
Consider the fact that the religious right are not a numerical majority and yet we can see that they quite often grab the candidate's ears. They aren't taken for granted, they are courted. Well maybe if we, diverse though we may be, were courted a bit for our support we might see more things on the table! Maybe if candidates see that people are listening to guys like Kucinich, they might take pause. Who knows? Learn about him Here.
Please let me know what you think.It's early, but who are you leaning toward? Why? What do you think is the most pressing issue?
