Now, I don’t know about you, but Dennis Kucinich really knocks my socks off.
Cmon, with a face like that, how could you go wrong??
–Supports abortion rights.
-Supports legal status for some illegal immigrants with long-standing ties to the U.S. Opposed legislation authorizing a 700-mile fence along the U.S.-Mexican border. (But personally, I’m not sure how I feel about the whole immigration thing)
-Voted against use of military force in Iraq. Voted against war spending bill with Democratic troop withdrawal plan because timeline was nonbinding and because it continued to fund the war. Supports ending war funding. Opposed Bush’s plan to send additional troops to Iraq. Opposes additional war funding and has called for troop withdrawal. Proposes opening talks with Iran and Syria to assist in Iraq. He vowed to create a Federal Department of Peace if elected in 2004. (Yess!!! Promoting discussion not violence!!) “Strength Through Peace” is a new domestic policy agenda he made that can provide Americans with jobs, with health care, with improved education, and with the tools and the resources to re-build our cities and our nation.
–Supports same-sex marriage. Opposes constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. (He is the only Dem. who is pro-gay MARRIAGE rights. All the others are for civil unions ALTHOUGH, I will give them some credit, since I’ve heard from a lot of nominees that the unions and marriages will be equal as far as legal rights go.)
–Opposed 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts. Opposed extending tax cuts through 2010. Supports restoring tax rates in place during Clinton administration. (The rich don’t need tax cuts! They don’t need social security either*)
Not to mention he’s VEGAN.
UNFORTUNATLY this amazing guy is only in the race with 1% according to CNN’s Election Center polls. Buuuuuuuuttttttt he, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, is for IMPEACHMENT!! He wants to put the name of everyone who supports ‘s impeachment in the Congressional Record! The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session and is fully searchable. Every day that Congress is in session, Rep. Kucinich will submit 5 single-spaced pages of names with states, which is the daily limit under House rules. To be included, all you need to do is submit this petition.
democrats.com. Isn’t he wonderful? Just imagine him as Prez… :D
Check out this video of Kucinich. Also, listen to what Barack has to say, I really like his philosophy of PACs: Will America be better off with Kucinich as president?
The beginning of this next vid. has nothing to do with Kucinich (:(), but at the end Mike Gravel challenges Barack. All in all, I still like Barack’s philosophy, and believe he enforces it. Are you a Liberal?
YOU MUST WATCH THIS VIDEO. KUCINICH IS GOD! Reparations? I believe the gov’t. should issue an offical apology to all indiginous and minority populations for all the harm they have caused in the past, and show ways they are going to stop and prevent this from happening in the future (GLBTTSQ ect. population anyone??)
The Republicans I could be happy with as President would be Ron Paul or Giuliani, with a preference on Rudy. Ron ran as Libertarian in ’88, and although he’s voting on the wrong side of MANY issues (in my opinion), he’s pro-peace, and thinks a lot of issues should be decided in the states (that would make Pete happy!). But Guliani is pro-abortion rights and supports domestic partnerships and legal benefits for same-sex couples, and is higher up in the polls.
*THIS IS MY OPINION!

On a side note, this is very scary to see: A lot of you are ungrateful traitors, if we pull out NOW then the troop’s would’ve died in vain. Until then SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU STUPID LIBERAL RETARDS and LET OUR TROOPS KICK THE SHIT OUT OF THOSE TERRORIST SAND NIGGERS!– dumbledop
It was the very first comment I saw when I watched this video: Are the troops dying in vain?
