Rep. Dennis Kucinich (5)

Dennis Kucinich has had many political lives. Elected to the Cleveland City Council in 1969 at age 23, he was in 1977 elected as that great American city’s “boy mayor.” Kucinich’s refusal to bend to the demands of the downtown banks and the utility corporations that wanted him to privatize public services led to a withering electoral assault that would eventually force him from office.

Calls for a New Politics

Washington, January 2, 2013 –

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today called for a new politics in his final speech on the House floor of the 112th Congress.  The video can be seen here.  The text follows:

A certain kind of politician is becoming a dwindling breed. I’m not thinking of the over-praised and frequently eulogized centrist, the kind who spends a career watering things down and gets lionized for having done so.

Keep Kucinich in Congress

For progressives, there are always a few great challengers we hope to send to Washington. Incumbents, we assume, can take care of themselves.

But in Ohio, redistricting has thrown two well-respected incumbents into one district – a heavily Democratic district designed by Republicans to guarantee other districts to the GOP. The two incumbents are both Democrats.

When to Say "No"; Make that "Hell No!"

Mitt Romney did not invent predatory capitalism.  It’s been around for a while.

 

Predatory capitalism was already alive and well in 1978, in Cleveland.  That was when the One Percent who controlled the banks, and pretty much everything else of value, decided that they wanted to steal the local power company from the people of Cleveland.
