Please get involvedThis weekend we will be taking to the streets to call for an end to this brutal war, and we need you there. We need you! I can't stress this enough. Blogging is great. Signing online petitions is wonderful. But at some point "we"--the collective Left--have to get out there and let our voices really be heard. When enough of us have had enough; when enough of us take to the streets to demand change, change will happen.
I practically beg people to participate in these events. And quite frankly it's sad what a pitiful response I get from people that can spend hours berating the president, congress, and everything else going on. But ask them to get out there and show the world that we're tired of this crap and they shut-up quicker than a hotel room door on prom night.
Look, I'm not putting anybody down here. I'm begging. I'm begging you to help set things straight. We really need you out there. That's how change happens.
Please don't sit there waiting for the Democrats to change things. Did you happen to catch the last guy they offered us as an alternative to Bush? Thirty million people took to the streets to oppose Bush's war in Iraq and the Democrats don't even have the balls to offer us a candidate that is against the war.
Power concedes nothing without demand. It never did, and it never will--Frederick DouglasPlease join us and demand change. Check out the ANSWER website or check out Bob's Politics in the Zeros. Bob is one of the orgnizers for the Los Angeles event this weekend and he writes a great blog. I hope you'll check it out, and I hope I'll see you Saturday.
