I've already secured the day off from work, and I'm looking forward to it immensely. I'm going to Caucus for Dennis Kucinich’s. He most completely matches my personal beliefs.

Dennis Kucinich, who with the minimal time allotted him, once again rose up beyond the sound bite and put principal ahead of party; argued policy rather than politeness. He has been the dominant voice of integrity on issues of trade, labor, education, environment, health, civil liberties, and the one endlessly determined voice of peace.

I was stalking your journal, and decided this was a good reason to step in and say Hi again.

While I don't know that I agree with everything he's for, he's definitely the idealist of the bunch, and unfortunately that makes him probably unelectable amongst a bunch of people who will say what they need to get elected. But at least he's honest. His single-payer health care solution is alone worth the price of admission, even if you don't agree with his other views, he's the only one with the right solution to the healthcare mess.

Anyways, strike a blow for true liberalism and caucus for the big K. Do what I can't in Oregon: make a difference in the 2008 Presidential election!

enough of this staling, you've been added to teh friends list. . .

I figure if nothing else, I'm going to make damn sure that the mainstream candidates who get the nomination, know that there is a large, and fairly unhappy group of their supporters who are deserving of having their views and the things they want folded into the overall agenda of the party. . .

and you never know, perhaps there are a lot more people like me, my girlfriend, and my mom and dad who are planning to do the same, and it will be a swift kick to the balls (or clit) of whomever is presumed to be the front runner.

Excellent. No more stalking indeed.

I watched Obama on CSPAN yesterday and was completely underwhelmed. I'm still not decided (not that it matters) but he didn't win me with that speech. I'll give him another chance, but if primaries are about setting overall party direction, I wasn't terribly happy with what I saw.

Kucinich is my congressperson. I like him, voted for him last time he ran for congress. It's interesting how easily he keeps his district considering how conservative and afraid of sticking out people here are. of course, Lakewood is the heart of his district and, well, Lakewood is a pretty progressive place compared to the surrounding areas.
