Default Dennis Kucinich Calls on Barack Obama for Change

In a recent interview Dennis Kucinich discusses some of the changes he hopes to see:


"No matter where you place yourself on the political spectrum it is hard to thumb one’s nose in the face of what is simply humane. Congressman Dennis Kucinich has spent the entirety of his political career fighting for justice in a town where money tends to eclipse the public interest and blurs the lines of right and wrong. Some call liberal Democrats like Kucinich “bleeding hearts” and others, on the right, see them as an obstacle. Either way, he is still their advocate. Though I was interested in picking his brain, I found it difficult to counter his basic principles of peace, environmental reform, healthcare reform, animal welfare, creating jobs and protecting taxpayers from large corporations. Anyone who has spoken to Congressman Dennis Kucinich will tell you that although he has a stubborn sensibility, his moral compass is always pointed in the right direction.

As Dennis Kucinich knows all to well, prominent politicians in Washington who stand up for the little guy are thought to interrupt the status quo. Kucinich is part of a rare breed in Washington who cannot be bought off by the wrong people, a noble quality that has made him a local hero in his Congressional district of Ohio, but one that has red flagged him as a troublemaker on Capitol Hill, albeit a highly respected one.

As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Domestic Policy in Congress, Dennis Kucinich has focused much of his recent efforts on preventing the Wall Street bailout from becoming an early Christmas for greedy undeserving CEOs. Kucinich insists on making sure banks play fair with their newfound funds stating, “It would be an affront to taxpayers and shareholders alike if Wall Street executives cashed in on the bailout. We must prevent bailout funds from being diverted directly or indirectly to bonuses and exorbitant compensation packages.”

Here is an interesting article which claims Obama is reincarnated from Trumbull who was an african slave lawyer at the time of Lincoln.

I have never seen anything he has done that has been good for anyone. He is just another politician. Until we have people in there that are working men and women and know us, we are going to be stuck on this merry go round forever. They are ALL out of touch with what the little guy has to go through and they really don't care. Until Washington is cleansed of the dog and pony croud nothing will ever change.

Personally I think he has done (or tried) a lot of good. He originally voted against the Iraq war, voted against the patriot act, introduced legislation to establish a US Department of Peace, voted against the FISA bill..and many more. He also has proposed more aid for local organic farming as well as a Works Green Administration which in itself would create millions of jobs.

I think that we have to give him a chance. Time will tell. Its got to be better than the war-mongers that have been in there for the last 8 years(or more)

He's going to have his hands full when the power is turned over to him.

Let's hope for the best. Positive thinking!
