Yet one is uniquely great: Rep. Dennis Kucinich. On issue after issue, he stands alone among Democrats. And above.
He is doing the progressive agitation from within government that we activists are doing from the outside.
Perhaps the biggest contrast between Dennis Kucinich and his opponent, Rep Marcy Kaptur, is in the area of war funding. Nothing frustrates antiwar activists more than Congress members who rhetorically oppose wars but vote to fund them. Unfortunately, Kaptur has voted YES on war funding over and over . . . while Kucinich voted NO.
Besides rejecting war funding, Kucinich stood virtually alone in Congress in working to impeach Bush and Cheney.
With war drums again beating ferociously in Washington, please donate to make sure Dennis Kucinich is still speaking out for us in Congress in 2013 . . . and beyond.
Dennis Kucinich needs funds because that is another point of difference between him and Kaptur. While he does not get money from war contractors, Kaptur’s contributors include General Dynamics, Teledyne, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.
Please join the signers at the bottom of this letter in donating whatever you can to keep Kucinich in Congress.
Leaders like ALAN GRAYSON and BARNEY FRANK are also urging support for Kucinich in this race. “Congress is full of replaceable parts,” says Grayson. “But Dennis Kucinich is not one of them. Dennis is unique.”
Barney Frank’s endorsement – besides commending Kucinich’s strong support of gay rights – notes their joint work on behalf of “substantially reducing America’s military activity across the world.” It is because of “his unbending integrity” that Kucinich is influential and respected in Congress. Frank continues:
|“In a time when it is common for people to be suspect of the motives of elected officials, and to feel that they are too narrowly focused on their own self-interest, Dennis Kucinich’s unwavering determination to do what he thinks is right for the broad public good earns him a hearing from even those who disagree with him on broad issues.”|
Thank you Dennis for your tireless efforts on our behalf!
Please do what you can to help Dennis Kucinich. A Congress without him is simply too depressing to imagine.
