May I introduce: "Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. . . . He flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam . . . .- a Rocket Scientist for the Space Coast! see
What's more important is he supports women's right to choose, gay rights, single payer healthcare, is truely supporting vets and on IRAQ, and says bring them home now.
update He seems to have gotten enough signatures God and county clerk be willing. Now I'm trying to hook him in with the rest of the fighting dems. (I wish I knew how to do strikeout)
Bob needs help gathering the last few hundred petition signatures by Sunday (yes, TODAY) evening. So if you live in or near FL 15, on the east coast - it includes the counties: Indian River, Brevard, Osceola, and a bit of Polk. see district map http://www.bowman2006.com/...
You can go to his site to download a petition at and print it.
More below the fold.
His only possible Dem opponent is a staunchly "pro-life" running a no $$ campaign, who probably won't make it on the ballot. If Bob does not qualify, R-Weldon, a bush/deLay pig will stay at the trough and what is more Weldon's campaign $$ will go to other repugs making other races harder to win.
He really sounds stressed to the max. So, go to his site*, if you live near spend an hour or two and get some sigs, or send some money - $5, $ 10, don't forget the .01 to give him some encouragement PLEASE.
*a particularly interesting bit is at which concludes:
We must stand up to the blood-sucking insurance companies, the for-profit hospitals and HMOs, and the giant pharmaceutical companies and stand up for a single-payer national health system. We must stand up to the job-exporting global robber barons and the WTO and stand up for good jobs at a living wage for American workers.
Most of all, we must stand up to the big oil companies and the neo-con imperialists and stand up for what's left of our troops by bringing them home ... NOW. God bless America, and God grant us regime change in Washington, DC. Thank You.
