  •  Why Focus on Democrats (5+ / 0-)

    Do the Republicans control the House?  Was it the Republicans who were swept into office because Americans want an end to this illegal war?  No, it was the Democrats we elected because we thought they would end the war.

    We know the Republican leaders are thugs; it's because we still hold out hope for our leaders in the Democratic Party, because we think they might still respect a voter mandate, that we bring our campaign to their offices.  

    Why would any of us believe that we will empower the Democrats, strengthen the party, appeal to more Independents, by rubber stamping yet another of Bush's bloody war budgets?  There are times when you need to be counter-intuitive, when to demand accountability of your own party is, in fact, to give people a reason to vote Democratic.

    •  Again, Ms. Winogrand, what about (0+ / 0-)

      the other Southern California Republicans who bear much more responsiblity for the war than any and all Democrats? Why are you not launching protests and trying to recruit candidates to run against them? After all they are the ones who are the greatest obstalces to changing policies that everyone here opposes?
