OK, I voted for Kucinch in the last election to become President of the United States. He's the only guy who made sense to me, AND has a track record of making sense. He continues to make sense.
Here Rep. Kucinich responds to President Obama's announcement of an escalation of the war in Iraq:
America is in the fight of its life and that fight is not in Afghanistan -- it's here. We are deeply in debt. Our GDP is down. Our manufacturing is down. Our savings are down. The value of the dollar is down. Our trade deficit is up. Business failures are up. Bankruptcies are up.
The war is a threat to our national security. We’ll spend over $100 billion next year to bomb a nation of poor people while we reenergize the Taliban, destabilize Pakistan, deplete our army and put more of our soldiers’ lives on the line. Meanwhile, back here in the USA, 15 million people are out of work. People are losing their jobs, their health care, their savings, their investments, and their retirement security. $13 trillion in bailouts for Wall Street, trillions for war; when are we going to start taking care of things here at home?
The people of Afghanistan don't want to be saved by us, they want to be saved from us.
Kucinich still makes sense to me. Obama is making less sense.Source
