Mike Gravel is now for Jesse Who? Bye bye fair weather friend ...Submitted by Treg on Tue, 07/01/2008 - 20:39
What can one say about Mike Gravel? I really like this guy. He just reminds me so much of my late Grandpa. He is just like my Grandpa, opinionated, honest, and sure of himself. And just like my Grandpa, he talks but does not listen (or read libertarian books). Oh well fair weather friend..... at least you know 'something' about libertarian political philosophy. So let me share with you the following which came in my email box today.
In Peace & Liberty,
Dear friend, "Let's Work Together"
I am writing you today in the hope that you will support Jesse Johnson for the Green Party presidential nomination. The party's convention is in two weeks, and Jesse needs your help.
I feel deeply in my heart that if we truly want to empower the people, end illegal and immoral wars, provide healthcare for all Americans, and fight global warming, we must do more than just work together with other voices. We're going to have to make a commitment to support them.
Let me tell you why I'm with Jesse.
The foundation of Jesse's political aspirations began with a desire to stop the environmental plundering of his home state, West Virginia, by corporate interests at the expense of the people. Since then, Jesse has expanded his policies to include providing education and quality healthcare to all Americans by reining in the military-industrial complex. These are goals we should all support.
We've seen the havoc the two major parties can wreak on a global scale by locking out other voices, third-party voices. Both parties support war and American imperialism, which distract us from focusing not only on our domestic well-being, but also the world's well-being. I want to lend my support to those voices that are committed to saving our country from our own shortsighted, greedy actions. Clinging to power for the sake of power benefits no one. We must have a voice in the political realm speaking earnestly and intelligently about all of our needs. Jesse and the Green Party have that credibility.
Please join me today in supporting Jesse Johnson for president by making a donation on his web site. You can also send a contribution via mail to the Committee to Elect Jesse Johnson, P.O. Box 893, Charleston, W.V. 25323.
Remember: We're all in this together. Let's help voices like Jesse's be heard.
