β€œIt's time to stand up - not to cheer, but to fight back.”
--Senator Russ Feingold, On Executive Power. (Daily Kos, 2006-02-02)

How many failures will the American voter endure before they realize we need vastly different leadership?

As we approach the midterm elections it appears the total failures of American foreign and defense policy under the Bush reign needs to be brought to the constant attention of the voters. Hopefully we will not again resort, as a party to personal attacks that have become so wide spread the last few years.

This headline from today is only one of many pro-active and passive failures that have made us less secure at home and allowed the people who want to harm freedom loving people the world over experience a wholesale loss of peace and security under an America ruled by Bush.

Iraqi premier criticizes U.S. attack


Iraq's prime minister sharply criticized a U.S.-Iraqi attack Monday on a Shiite militia stronghold in Baghdad, breaking with his American partners on security tactics as the United States launches a major operation to secure the capital. more

Meanwhile now that the Democratic Republic of the Congo has recently held free elections for the first time in over 40 years and America has been AWOL from providing real assistance in the voting preparation and in the counting process. Now the results are in question because the ability to even count the results is seriously outdated.


Observers: Disorder plagues Congo count

KINSHASA, Congo - An unmarked ballot wafts in the breeze. Congolese election workers doze. Pieces of concrete weigh down stacks of vote tally sheets, keeping them from blowing away. A week after Congo's presidential elections unfolded in relative peace, experts say the disorder and chaos that has long hobbled the Central African country is creeping into the tallying β€” raising questions about the fairness of the outcome. more

Senator Feingold has always done so well at developing policy ideas that demonstrates his belief that people really do matter. We all need to work to be sure the voters understand that the total failure of America diplomacy in the DR Congo, Iraq and Lebanon has all contributed to make us less secure and at risk from those who would harm freedom loving people the world over.

At the midterm elections - Vote for change with a purpose - The Progressive way - vote to assist freedom-loving people at home and the world over.
