President George W. Bush doesn’t have to mimic Pakistan's dictator, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and suspend the Constitution, since he doesn’t have any opposition. The two major political parties are controlled by the same Wire Pullers. Meanwhile, an “Axis of Zionists,” Michael Mukasey at Justice, Michael Chertoff at Homeland Security and Joshua Bolten at the WH, now have a choke hold on key positions in our government. America is in deep doo-doo!

Kucinich is a true progressive that doesn't simply make stuff up along the way in accord to political winds -- and even if you don't think he's electable, supporting him now through early primaries can really push the debate into areas we want to have sunshine
