America in Crisis
FIRST REAL CITIZEN BATTLE OVER 9/11 IS THE RE-ELECTION OF
CONGRESSWOMAN CYNTHIA McKINNEY
McKinney (D), the five-term incumbent Democratic Congresswoman
from Georgia who has been an outspoken champion of human
rights, critical of vested interests in both parties, is
facing the toughest challenge of a political career that
has been characterized by her willingness to speak her mind
when her conscience dictates. Recently McKinney was savaged
by politicians and the mainstream media for asking questions
about the attacks of last September 11th that were proven,
just weeks later, to have been extremely well founded.
Now it appears that those who will do anything
to prevent full and open investigations of the tragedy intended
to make an object lesson out of McKinney. Ask tough questions
and your head will be hung on the Tower of London as an
example. That's the message they intend to send to American
challenge this time is not from a Republican opponent but
from a very
Democratic Party challenger named Denise Majette, an African
American judge who is trying to unseat McKinney before this fall's midterm elections. If Majette wins
the August 20 primary, based upon her stated political positions,
McKinney will be replaced by someone who could care less
about answering the important questions about 9/11, challenging
globalization or questioning US military operations that
benefit only the nation's wealthiest interests. Majette
will be more interested in pork spending for the
at the expense of the health of the entire nation and that
ultimately means that residents of
the district will suffer too as the economic chickens come
home to roost.
she likes it or not, Cynthia McKinney has become symbolic
for all of us in America;
a symbol of integrity, courage, strength and vision. She
needs our help.
I am routinely
asked after each of my lectures, "What can we do to
change the criminal behavior, corruption and tyranny that
away at heart and soul of the nation since 9/11?"
Now one clear answer has emerged among
many others: Help Cynthia McKinney!
McKinney's re-election will send an unmistakable message to
Washington that no congressional district benefits if the nation
forgets its values; that courage and honesty are behaviors
that the American people are capable of rewarding and protecting;
and that heavy-handed politics is not something to be feared.
In the 1960s the Freedom Riders and courageous
heroes from all over the country traveled to the South because
that's where they knew the battle was being fought for the
soul of the nation. Then, the cause was civil rights. Today
the cause is freedom from the oppression of big corporate
interests, corruption and open oppression by a regime whose
interests are served by an administration that was not elected
and by political interests that do not represent the people.
