Peaceman sez: Impeach the Chenguin!!



I don't agree with everything he says, and he ain't in my party, but Dennis Kucinich is a decent man who's correct about "Big Time" Dick. It's too bad there aren't more like him serving this country...

It' great to see the video is making an impact even with non-Democrats. I consider myself more progressive/open-minded than a Democrat, but I think Dennis is the most honest and courageous politician running for president. His vision for America is genuinely inspirational and unifying...we need to find ways to compel the media and our country's power-brokers to give him a chance to get his message out to the masses.

Anyway, thanks for posting this.

Well, I'm a Green, so it's not like I'm unsympathetic to the cause...

"I think Dennis is the most honest and courageous politician running for president."

I've not yet begun to pay attention, so I really can't say... ...though of the candidates I know about currently, I agree.

Really? I thought you were an anarchist. Hahah. You're right that the current crop of candidates haven't set a very high bar, but Dennis would be a special candidate in any election. His positions make so much sense, and many more Americans agree with him on the issues than our media would lead us to believe: http://www.dehp.net/candidate/stats.php

Kucinich is too honest to become president. His views are too far to the left. He may very well be correct, but being correct is usually a death sentence in national politics.

I tend to be that far left (or at least think I am), so that wouldn't be my issue with Kucinich. I do agree that he can't be elected, but he can bring up those "uncomfortable" issues for the eventual Dem candidate to address, and that's something...

If there is no third party (Green, more'n'likely) candidate that more closely represents my views, I will be writing in Kucinich come 11/08. (Clinton cannot have my vote, and I doubt Obama will earn it, either.)

Here in NY, the Democrat is going to take the state no matter what I do... Were I in a swing state, I'm not sure what I would do, anymore... I was adement in 2000 & 2004 that voting for the best candidate in the race is crucial, but I'm wavering...

It's going to take years & years to clean up after Bush & the Republicans. Makes me sad just thinkin' about it...

I don't care what Kucinch says. He, like all democrats, is still a mainstream hack of the corporatocracy. I'm not voting for anyone of them.

I've heard that view, Ortho...

I can't wall myself off that way... True, the Democrats I think worthy generally do continue in the Democratic party, but nobody's perfect. I'm happy enough that they're saying / doing the right things...

If a better candidate comes along, I'll vote for that candidate, same as always... But I'm neither going to avoid a candidate for being a Democrat, or support one for not being a Democrat.
