Senator Russ Feingold

By Remy Benoit

From Senator Feingold at The Huffington Post The Warnings are There, Will the President Listen?.

The mandate from the people was given to the Congress which is not following it in just about every arena, for reasons unclear to us. Keep in mind these words from Margaret Chase Smith:

Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous to this country as irresponsible talk. The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character.

It is our responsibility to remind those serving us that that is what they are doing - serving us - not their own agendas. If they can't do that, then, perhaps, they should step aside and allow someone who can serve us take their positions. This is not about Republican or Democrat; this is about what this country is about. Only the People can speak to that.

From The Campaign for America's Future, we have an article by Sara Robinson that should spark some debate When Change Is Not Enough: The Seven Steps To Revolution.

Also, let me remind you of Charles Sheehan Miles' Republic: A Novel of America's Future. You will find my review of this book at the site.
