An old phrase comes to mind when I read this, "you can please some of the people, all the time. All the people, some of the time, but you can't
please all the people all the time."
I think alot of you are concentrating on what you don't agree with. Concentrate on what you do agree with. What did he say:
1.) there need to be change, our government no longer speaks for the people.
2.) penalize the employers that hire the illegal immagrants, not the illegal immagrants themselves.
3.) we have been lied to by our government repeated, goes back to #1.
These, I think are truths that all of us can agree on. This being said, all of us have different ideas on how to bring about the change, some more
drastic then others. Those that are more drastic, keep in mind what the moderates are saying, even if you think they don't go far enough, some change
is better then no change.
I also brought up the "none of the above" choice on ballets when we had kucinich on ATS, answering questions. While the people asking the question
thought it was a joke, I seriously do think this needs to be a valid option. If the majority of the people think the choices given suck, and "none of
the above" wins, then it is obligation of the government and the parties to choose candidates that the people can feel comfortable about voting for.
This country was founded on "We, the people", and if the "none of the above" gets put on the ballets as an option, then thats what we have, "We,
the people", not "We, the corporations, private interest groups, lobbists, military industrial complex, and foreign entities."
Just my 2 cents,
