Stop the Bickering!
"Peace" by Sarah Jacobs
I read a post tonight about how disappointing John Kerry was. He hadn't presented the Downing Street Memo to the Senate yet, and everyone was piling on.
Or how Howard Dean shouldn't have opened his mouth and say that Republicans were the party of "white Christians".
Or how Barack Obama was a big disappointment because he criticized Howard Dean.
Cut it out.
All of you.
We are all Democrats, Progressives, Feminists, Greens and concerned citizens. The future of America is at stake.
We cannot fight each other or we shall all lose. America shall lose. And this is not an acceptable option.
Our government is not being run by Conservatives. Conservatives believe in balanced budgets and small government. Conservatives believe in using the military as a last resort and quite frankly are a bit isolationist. Conservatives believe in a small government that doesn't involve itself in the affairs of the bedroom or the affairs between a patient and her doctor, and quite frankly, the affairs that go on within a woman's body.
Conservatives practice conservation.
Conservatives believe in protecting the clean air, the clean water, and even the financial health of the nation.
No. We are not being led by Conservatives.
Our nation is being run by radicals. Radicals that hide under the flag of Jesus Christ. That sell the masses on God, while peddling corporate corruption. That claim to be pro-life, and then advancing a militarism that leads to death and destruction. The future of our nation, the future of the world and the future of our children is at stake.
Our government is rushing towards an Armageddon with North Korea and Iran.
They are not seeking disarmament; they are counting on Rapture.
So let us not take pot shots at each other as Democrats, Progressives, and Greens.
Let us join together and strategize, support, communicate, educate, and finance the opposition that must succeed in 2006 and 2008 and on.
Too much is at stake. Peace everyone?
