Depressing Beyond Belief

See this post to once again experience the contempt our elected leaders have for democracy, the Constitution, in fact the whole idea of the United States of America.

It certainly is depressing. Sometimes I get excited about the prospect of progressive gains, but then I have to remind myself that the entire system is a corporatist sham anyway. It needs to change from the roots up.

Hi Everyone... The video of my interview this weekend with Charlie Brown is posted on my site now. This video is for all his supporters. He points out some last minute advice for all of us.

Here was my letter to BlueAmerica sites about it.

It was 10:30pm Saturday night, sitting at the kitchen table at the house of Brown family friends. The day was non-stop campaigning with Paul Hackett and then a swing by the airport to pick up Charlie's son just in from Iraq by way of Germany. His daughter flew up from Southern California and yet he still took the time to sit down and chat with me. In December his son rotates back to serve his FOURTH TOUR as a combat pilot in Iraq and I was honored to be invited to such a private family gathering.

He is genuine and forthright and sitting and talking with him makes you believe wholeheartedly that there are better days ahead for America. The momentum is completely behind Charlie and people are starting to realize that a vote for him today could save California tens of millions of dollars in a special election when John Doolittle is indicted in the next few months. The ground game here is
strong even though the territory is so large. There are active and outspoken supporters turning out everywhere for Charlie. We need a final push and my last question to Charlie was what people could do in the final 36 hours until the polls close. He is holding no funds back and is still buying radio time and will until the final hour of vote casting. If we can do one more BlueAmerica push, he can borrow against the final total in order to make radio spot buys down to the wire.

Watch Nate's great video interview with Charlie Brown here.

Win or lose, this district will never be the same again. It has been proven to be completely competitive and it will stay that way for a long time to come. Let's save some serious California tax dollars and get Doolittle out now so we don't have to bother with a special election after the whole felony prosecution thing.

Thanks everyone for letting me be BlueAmerica's 'guy-on-the-ground' for the CA-04th. I've made lifelong friends and found a leader I'm eager to keep serving and I'm grateful for the opportunity to make a difference... All the way to the victory celebration!
