Rosanne Barr again used her website to weigh in on the Presidential race, for the second time plugging the candidacy of Cynthia McKinney for President. She wrote:
the first woman in history to run as the nominee of a viable party is cynthia mckinney of the green party. the green party is the future of america. I do not think it matters who wins between obama and mccain at all. aipac runs both parties, bottom line.
The following letter is now being circulated for signers in support of its message. Follow the read more link below to learn more.
AN OPEN LETTER RE CYNTHIA MCKINNEY
TO OUR POLITICALLY CONSCIOUS
SISTERS AND BROTHERS OF BLACK AMERICA
For far too long Black America has been at the mercy of political pimps and usurpers, particularly of the Democratic Party. It is now the year 2008, and we in Black America, in conjunction with our Brown, Red, Yellow, and White sisters and brothers have a genuine and serious choice in order to build a true people's movement for real systemic change through the "Power to the People" campaign inspired by former U.S. Congresswoman Sister Cynthia McKinney.
Cynthia Mckinney has demonstrated that she wants, and is fighting for, real, systemic change; which is the only change that will address the health care, employment, judicial, and environmental needs of all people.
STEP UP TO THE PLATE NOW
Sister Cynthia is not a corporately sponsored clone like John McCain, Barack, or Hillary Clinton. She is The Real People's Candidate. Cynthia knows that her campaign is about building the opportunity for a different America; an America that supports and believes in itself and the peoples of the world in a very real sense.
Bruce Gagnon, coordinator for the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space, yesterday afternoon posted in a piece called "Cynthia Turns Me Green", his endorsement of Ms McKinney to his blog, Organizing Notes. Cynthia has long relied on the research from the Global Network for informing her work on this threat to life on this planet. In his post immediately following her departure, Bruce wrote:
. . .
McKinney will be focusing on jobs in a green society in her campaign. She told us today about having just visited with the Austria Green Party where they are turning their country into a model green society in order to deal with global warming. Cynthia talked about how people could be put to work learning to build green structures, repairing America's declining infrastructure and creating sustainable technologies instead of bombs.
That is just what we need to be hearing from someone running for president.
Cynthia defined winning as helping to build the Green Party into a viable alternative party in the U.S. that gives the future generations some place to go for political expression and change. Her ability to attract women, people of color, and disaffected Democrats and Republicans will surely provide the Greens the kind of boost they have long needed. How many times have I heard activists ask how do we develop connections to the black community so we can work together? Now is our chance.
For me the whole campaign makes total sense. Mary Beth and I gave Cynthia a $100 donation, which for us is alot of money. We see it as a good investment in the future.
Dear Congresswoman McKinney,
Please see the attached photo of 2 happy supporters proudly displaying the "Cynthia McKinney for Congress" message.
Your leadership and vote has been sorely missed in Congress these past months. We look forward to hearing your decision for 2008.
Thank you for everything.
Philip G. Smith, a Dekalb County Georgia resident and constituent of the 4th Congressional District wrote in an open letter to Paula Zahn at CNN News: "The other evening, while discussing the remarks of talk show host Don Imus, you mentioned that an Atlanta based talk show host, Neal Boortz, had made similar comments about Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. My wife and I live in Georgia's 4th Congressional District, and we are grateful that someone finally put Boortz's comments in a negative light."
