Supporting Cindy and Our Movement
In an earlier posting I voiced the urgent need for us to unite behind an alternative party and candidacy. A good start is the campaign of Cindy Sheehan for Congress. I have personally seen 100,000 of us committed enough to go to DC for a protest which arguably achieved nothing. If that many of us sent a measly $20.00 to the Sheehan campaign, she would have the money to run a first rate campaign and could very well win. That would shake the corporatocracy and would also be vital in letting us know that progressive independents can win power if we unite in struggle. Even a poor stiff like me can get off of a Twenty so DONATE NOW and let the Dims know we mean business.
While you're at it, check out our bumper stickers. I'm always open to suggestions and by buying a sticker, you help support the publication of the Blue Collar Review and Partisan Press. This is a working class operation and much of it comes out of my shallow pockets but it as an important tool in expanding progressive consciousness and creating a progressive culture. While throwing money at things does not replace actual activism it is vital that we support ourselves as a class if we are ever to make real progress toward a sustainable working class democracy.
