While the rest of the presidential hopefuls do their political dance to obscure their position on Iraq, Dennis Kucinich offers Americans what they voted for in November, a clear exit strategy for Iraq. The only problem for Kucinich is that he receives virtually no coverage from the corporate owned media, because of his anti corporate views on many issues.


Dear Friends,

In November of 2006, after an October upsurge in violence in Iraq, the American people moved decisively to reject Republican rule, principally because of the conduct of the war. Democratic leaders well understand we regained control of the Congress because of the situation in Iraq. However, two months later, the Congress is still searching for a plan around which it can unite to hasten the end of US involvement in Iraq and the return home of 140,000 US troops.

There is a compelling need for a new direction in Iraq, one that recognizes the plight of the people of Iraq, the false and illegal basis of the United States war against Iraq, the realities on the ground which make a military resolution of the conflict unrealistic and the urgent responsibility of the United States, which caused the chaos, to use the process of diplomacy and international law to achieve stability in Iraq, a process which will establish peace and stability in Iraq allow our troops to return home with dignity.

The Administration is preparing to escalate the conflict. They intend to increase troop numbers to unprecedented levels, without establishing an ending date for the so-called troop surge. By definition, this escalation means a continuation of the occupation, more troop and civilian casualties, more anger toward the US, more support for the insurgency, more instability in Iraq and in the region, and prolonged civil war at a time when there is a general agreement in the world community that the solution in Iraq must be political not military. Iraq is now a training ground for insurgents who practice against our troops.

What is needed is a comprehensive political process. And the decision is not President Bush's alone to make.
The Kucinich Plan For Leaving Iraq


I fully understand why conservatives dislike Kucinich, however his lack of support from liberal democrats is extremely surprising. Apparently liberal democrats are just as owned by the corporate powers as conservatives. Based on deed and record, Dennis Kucinich should be the liberal democrats poster boy, yet he remains invisible.

Dear Friends,

November 7, 2006, the American people moved decisively to reject Republican rule, principally because of the conduct of the war. However, two months later, Congress is still searching for a plan around which it can unite to end US involvement in Iraq and the return home of 140,000 US troops.

The Bush43 Administration is preparing to escalate the conflict. They intend to increase troop numbers to unprecedented levels, without establishing an ending date for the so-called “troop surge.” This escalation means more troop and civilian casualties, more anger toward the US, more support for the insurgency, more instability in Iraq and a prolonged civil war . . there is general agreement in the world community that the solution in Iraq must be political and not military . . What is needed is a comprehensive political process. And the decision is not President Bush's alone to make. Dennis Kucinich. [Edited by Don W]

C F R. Campaign Finance Reform. Until the American public pays for public elections, and bans outside money as corrupting the political process, it will remain the way it is. By deft stagecraft, the scenery will change, but the same “play” goes on.

Western History Professor Emeritus Eugen Weber of UCLA say this intimate collaboration between politics and money began with the election of Charles V (1500-1558) as Holy Roman Emperor. 1519. This despite Pope Leo X supported the French King Francis I. Charles V was not crowned until 1530 by Pope Clement VII. The last to have a papal coronation. Charles V was first to be described as ruler of an empire on which the sun did not set. As we Protestants chide, it was neither “Holy” nor “Roman” nor an “Empire” but it was a title many crowned heads of Europe valued in those days.

We would not be in this mess if we had a different Supreme Court. I am satisfied the Warren Court or the Burger Court would not have said the 1st Amendment “free speech” clause forbids any regulation of money spent in the electoral proses. It is ridiculous. To assert that 300 million people cannot organize regulate and hold elections of their representatives is laughable if it was not the law of our land.

Until we get a new Supreme Court, which may not be for decades, a Constitutional Amendment giving Congress power to establish an electoral process where money is out but for public funds, intelligently spent, to inform th electorate about the issues and the position the candidates take. With modern communications it seems like any amendment ought to restrict electoral campaigns to about 60 days.

There should be provisions for opposition to the administration to have periodical air time. Lastly, the penalty for violations need not be jail an and fines, but banning from future political activity for a term of years. Instead of trying to put Tom DeLay in jail, I’d be satisfied if he was banned from political activity for 20 years. If he breaks that law, then it is time to put him in jail. To avoid favoring the rich over the poor, let’s have just one penalty, on conviction, banishment for 20 years. But to encourage whistle blowing, reduce the sentence to 10 years if the testimony results in the conviction of others. Etc.

It’s easy when you know what you want to do. To stop selling our birthright to the highest bidder.

donwhite,

CFR, 14th century royalty and the supreme court have nothing to do with the Kucinich presidential campaign not being covered by the news media. It is corporate censorship that keeps Kucinich and 3rd parties of all variety out of the public consciousness. Surely a US congressman running for President of the United States is more news worthy than the rosie & donald fued.

Judicial proof CFR language is easy, but that is a topic another thread.

Six corporations control 90% of America's media. We have anti-trust laws on the books. Since the 1890s. We have not enforced anti-trust laws since the late 1930s. That will not change until we have CFR. Bush43 shows his total disdain for the November 7 vote. That is because he knows the Dems need $300-400 million to run their 2008 campaign and it will come from the same groups that will give $300-400 million to the GOP.

Whatever issue you raise, it is a CFR issue, bottom line.
