My Moment of Freedom--27 May 08


My Moment of Freedom

During our protest in front of Rep. Blumenauer’s office, I had decided to leave the Democratic Party. Just before the deadline for filing for the US House arrived I decided to wait and file to oppose the Earlman and put off my moment of freedom. The primary is over and it is now time to break from a party that has lost its way and become part of the continuation of the slaughter of the innocents in Iraq.

On May 27th in solidarity with the brave and honorable people who will face trial in DC for protesting outside of the Supreme Court I will sign the paperwork to leave the democratic party and become an independent.

My words and reasoning could not come up to these wonderful words by Cynthia McKinney's speech

After 40 years of working with the dems, I have just given up on this party lead by Pelosi, Reed, Emanuel, Hoyer and Schumer. I just cannot stand it anymore. I will not vote for any of the democrats running for any office because they will continue the occupation and now genocide of the defenseless country called Iraq. I will look for candidates who will stop the madness and not just talk about it in a way that just confuses most Americans.

I do this not out of sadness but with a feeling of joy, we are not alone.
