    Steve Forbes ran for president.  Remember how well that went down.  And how about how Kerry's millions bought him an election. Dollars do not vote.  They are not registered to vote.  We can shower the voting machine with money but it is still the people who pull the lever that cast the vote.  Are you really prepared to look that returning veteran in the eye and tell him that he was a fool for risking his life on the battle field for this country?  Are you willing to tell your children that this 200+ year experiment in democracy has proven that man is not capable of self-government?  I'll take the Internet over any SCOTUS decision.  We have the power!!!! We just need to use it and stop letting Rush Limbaugh set the agenda! This is not the time to toss in the towel!  This is the time to show how tough we really are!

      Voting won't be enough, maybe shutting down five bridges won't either but how about we keep them shut for months until the get the change we were promised? Once I get laid off which is likely just because of the economy these are the things I will be trying to organize.

        Congressman from Georgia change his vote?  They come to work on the Metro and the folks in their home district are not impacted by shutting down the transportation system in D.C.  Get real!  There is only one thing that gets a Congressman's attention and that is the outcome of the vote on Election Day!  That is when THEY get laid off or have their contract extended.  
           So, how smart is it to have you plotting to jam up the traffic while letting the Congressman in your district, who has been doing everything possible to create the economic conditions that will cost you your job, get rewarded by another term?  Explain to me how that is a plan that benefits YOU.  Every group in this country has gotten ahead because they had laws passed that advantaged them.  That goes for the fat cats and for the poorist among us.  THE VOTE...THE VOTE...everything else is horse hockie.
