Let The Congress and Senate Hear From you On Iraq

   John Edwards at the Virtual Town Hall on Iraq.

We know George Bush and Karl Rove will deploy the full-fury of their PR machine to blame Democrats for Bush’s choice, Bush’s choice to veto funding for the troops. There are many people in Washington that are gonna be tempted to cry uncle, and they’ll say, they’re gonna let Bush win another round in this fight. So where will Congress find the courage to stand firm? I’ll tell you where they’ll find it: they’ll find it in your letters. They’ll find it in your calls. They will find it in your voice. Forty years ago, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave a sermon speaking out against the war in Vietnam. He said, "There comes a time in all of our lives where silence is a betrayal."

    Martin Luther King Jr. speech  on April 4, 1967, 40 years ago:

If we do not act we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.

   Pay attention to that statement people. Class is in session!

    The majority of the citizens of the United States want us out of Iraq now, not in another year. But no one is out raising hell about Bush's plans nor are they letting their Reps. know how they feel about things.

   It is time that you got off of your butts and made a few calls and wrote a few letters to your Senators and your Congressmen and told them to get on the ball with this. While you are at it, if you favor impeachment of resident Bush, let them know that also. Do not forget though, that Cheney has to go down with him at the same time.
