I wish I could be there. The Downing street Memo and the implication of Carl Rove are eneough to make any american want to be a part of this movement/ no matter what party!

I agree.

I just wish Americans were getting the NEWS,there are still many in the dark.

That's why we need to connect with other WEB sites / Bloggers.

There are so many good voices and outlets, but they need to operate United in order to multiply the effect.

Be aware of a coming independent news source:

We've got the smoking gun, so near and yet so far. We've also got
Conyers, Boxer, 60 other Represenatative, Sen. Kennedy and even Sen. Kerry. Could we get George Soros and other billionaires to supply the money? If only, Kennedy and Kerry would lead this fight. What have they got to lose? Esp. Kerry, if he wants the nomination again. Hillary is too busy courting the neo-cons and Bushes. No matter. I am beginning to think that impeachment is doable.

I won't read much into that "K" instead of a "C".
