Dennis Kucinich: Patriot from the "left"...of which there are many!Submitted by sharkhearted on Wed, 07/25/2012 - 23:36
Like Naomi Wolf (who wrote the End of America), Dennis Kucinich is a true patriot from the left (of which there are many).
As a life-long Republican, I get bloody tired of the Republicans always patting themselves on the back and saying they are the "true patriots."
Nonsense! Patriots exist across the political spectrum.
While I do not agree with the "left" on many things, this is the beauty of disagreement: As long as each individual is principled, like Dennis Kucinich and Dr. Paul, then the differences will iron themselves out and the truth will ALWAYS come out in the wash.
With neocons, however, the truth is always completely lost in their Newspeak spin:
Neocons: Whether you have the quote unquote "liberal" Obama defending"his right to kill American citizens without charges, indefinite detention, or medical cannabis raids...or the quote unquote "conservative" Bush passing No Child Left Behind, ballooning the national debt more than any other president in history (before Obama that is), and using altruism (Ayn Rand would hate his guts) to advance the so-called "War on Terror", a "war" that has unnecessarily cut short the lives of so many of our brave servicemen.
Yes, in the neocon world, right is left and left is right. Up is down, and red is blue.
Nice to see some principled old fashioned liberals out there, like Dennis Kucinich. And even though I don't agree with his platform overall, I have a HELLA lot more respect for him than I do for any Republican neocon...ever.
And I could kiss my long-time liberal democrat Establishment congressman, Bobby Scott, D-VA, who avoided the group-think pressure of the Congressional Black Caucus (who voted overwhelmingly against the Audit the Fed bill)...to vote FOR the bill.
Good for you, Congressman Scott.
And good for you, Congressman Kucinich! [Watch this impassioned 1 minute speech here!]
Long live Lady Liberty,
