Too often, our leaders betray us.
Mark Wilson is running as the progressive challenger in the primary against Maria Cantwell.
Please support him, if only for this reply on his stance on the filibuster, courtesy a Democratic Underground poster.

I would have stood with Kerry and Kennedy. Most likely I would have beat
them to the punch on filibuster.(my emphasis added) I am of course concerned with Alito's
stated interpretation dismissing constitutional protection of upholding Roe
V Wade. But even more appalling is the potential of reverting to the old
interpretition of the Commerce Clause. This reversion could toss
environmental protections back decades dissallowing federal protections in
upholding environmental law. Sending enforcement back to the states will
make environmental laws in effect unenforceable. After all, how can air and
water pollution be contained within a particular states juristiction?
I appreciate your interest in this important effort. I and many others are
now engaged in saving this important US Senate seat from the Republicans.
We need your help. With Cantwells vote for the Iraq War Resolution that she
just made clear she has "no regrets" for casting, as well as voting for
clouture on Alito, with many other absurd votes, she has in my opinion
alienated what should be a vibrant base organizing to work for re-election.
This is not the case. The base is more split on Cantwells re-election than
many would care to admit.
Please refer to my web page to see the profound differences between myself
and Cantwell and McGavick. Cantwell and McGavick fail to agree with me and
most of the state on key issues. They are more like eachother. Two
multimillionaires from big Corporations who agree on Iraq, the Patriot Act,
NAFTA, CAFTA .....
I disagree with each and every on of those issues. And the things I'm for
they ignore. Like ending the war, repealing the USA Patriot Act, ending
Corporate welfare, ending the war on drugs.
I want to cut the war budget in half and direct that $250B to renewable
energy projects, Universal Health Care and protecting Social Security.
I look forward to future contact with you. I hope I can earn your support.
Please make a contribution to my campaign. I cannot shoulder this effort
without your help.
