Hope for 2011 and Beyond

I officially endorsed Dennis Kucinich for president way back in August. Oddly, this has yet to create the groundswell of support I had hoped for. If, like me, you've watched in dismay as Obama supported the ed deformers and the wealthiest 1% of taxpayers, you may want to think about supporting Kucinich in 2012.

Watch the video below. Try to imagine this man supporting an extension of the Bush tax cuts. See if you can picture him cheering the firing of the staff of an entire school, appointing Wall Street bankers to his administration, or continuing the disastrous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There are still some true progressives out there. Dennis is one.

Happy New Year, all.

I've been a supporter of Dennis for about 10 years now - vote for him every chance I get until he's forced to step aside for one of the corporate hacks that passes for "Democrat" these days. Alas, I read somewhere recently that his district may be eliminated due to the 2010 census findings. if this happens, that leaves Bernie Sanders of Vermont as the only member of Congress worth supporting.

What about John Edwards or Elliot Spitzer? I bet you loved them too.
