So far, the run up to the 2008 presidential election has shown that the power still lies with the people, as individuals have donated more in this election than ever before.

The first amendment gave the people the right to free speech and political donations are an integral form of free speech.

Let's show that our voice is louder than the PACs and $2,300 maxed-out, bundled donations of corporations.

Our goal is to get 100,000 people to commit to donate $100 each to Dennis Kucinich on December 15, 2007, for a total one-day contribution of $10 million...

How to Vote in Primaries and Not Be an Idiot - A Short Instructions Manual
By David Swanson

1. Virtually nobody votes in primaries (or caucuses) compared to general elections. Therefore, each individual primary vote is worth many times what it is in the general election. And, it's more likely to be counted, since there's typically less fraud and abuse of the system in primaries. So, if you vote in general elections, you pretty much have to vote in primaries in order to not be an idiot. Bring a few friends to vote too, and you're practically a genius.

2. If you have to join a party that you don't support in order to vote in a primary, you can always unjoin again immediately after the primary. In the meantime, maybe you'll have helped to create a party you can support. You can even vote in a primary without planning to vote in the general election. If the 50% of Americans who don't vote at all (or even a small fraction of them) voted in primaries, they would determine the candidates in the general elections, in which they might then choose to vote as well...

Penn endorses Kucinich, challenges 'conventional wisdom' on electability by Jason Rhyne Published: Friday December 7, 2007

Actor Sean Penn endorsed dark horse Democratic presidential contender Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) in what was billed as a "major political address" given by the actor Friday in San Francisco.

Lambasting Democrats in Congress for their refusal to pursue the impeachment of President Bush, Vice President Cheney and other members of the current administration, Penn praised Kucinich for his "moral courage," according to an advance copy of the speech provided to RAW STORY.

"[O]ur cowardly Democratically dominated House and Senate can barely find one voice willing to propose so much as an impeachment. That one voice of a true American," said the actor. "That one voice of Congressman Dennis Kucinich."...

Kucinich on the Early Show - "Republicans didn't call my bluff"...

Submitted by tnjp on November 7, 2007 - 5:35pm.

On Tues. Nov. 6th 2007 Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced Articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney via a "special privilege" parliamentary maneuver. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer moved to table (kill) the resolution but was out maneuvered by the Republicans and lost the motion to table. Hoyer then moved for referral to the Judiciary Committee, which succeeded.

In this video, Kucinich reads the articles of impeachment on the House floor. The bill, originally HR333, is now referred to as H RES 799 (HR799).

Dennis Kucinch's HR333 Articles of Impeachment against Cheney have been renamed to H Res 799 (HR799,HR 799, HRES799, H RES 799)...

BTW, you guessed it, our own Congressman Allen Boyd is not on board for impeaching Cheney. Check the roll call vote. He voted to table (kill) Kucinich's resolution to impeach Cheney.

It's Time to Impeach Cheney
By Congressman Dennis Kucinich, special to www.ImpeachCheney.org

As a member of Congress, I have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution and the laws of our nation, and I have pledged to represent the views of my constituents and of all Americans.

That’s why I feel both duty and sorrow in pursuing the path of impeachment against Vice President Richard B. Cheney.

While the impeachment movement has generated intensely strong sentiment and activism, there have been only two polls published on the question of impeaching Vice President Cheney. In a national poll, 54 percent of Americans favored impeachment. In one state poll, 64 percent of Vermonters favored impeaching the Vice President.

Twenty-one of my colleagues have heeded the public demand and signed on as cosponsors of my resolution, H Res 333. Others in the Congress have claimed they have more important priorities, but have told their constituents they will keep their views in mind if the matter ever comes up for a vote.

Well, the issue is coming up for a vote this week on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the “distraction” will require members to balance their priorities between Constitutionally proscribed justice and recourse and the alternative: Constitutional abuse and dictatorial power...

Click pic for full sized imageDennis Kucinch made a visit to Tallahassee on Wednesday Aug. 29th at the Tallahassee Press center. Several members of the corporate media attended the press conference as well as a few supporters that were able to attend who had received last minute emails.

Congressman Kucinich laid out his platform and answered questions from a skeptical corporate press concerning the recent DNC ruling that Florida may not have delegates at the Dem convention in '08 due to the Republican-led FL legislature's decision to move Florida's primary up to Jan. 29th in 2008. He also answered questions about the impending special session of the FL Legislature to address projected budget shortfalls and the impending cuts to Medicare as well as questions on the viability of his presidential candidacy from a smarmy corporate lackey who also was harping on Karl Rove's talking points about "socialized" healthcare.

That was answered by Congressman Kucinich with counter-questions asking about "socialized" education and "socialized" police and fire protection. He also pointed out the US is the ONLY western country who's government doesn't have healthcare for all its citizens.
