Fool cain't get fooled agin!
I have put the details up at the top. I guess in the end politics really comes down to people. I hope anyone who reads this will show up. I am looking forward to going.

I would like poeple to consider what we can do to get name recognition for Feingold. I think that there is no doubt that Feingold is considering a run. It will take support from every state to convince him-it is a big risk to run- If people want to write a letter to him I can gather them to mail and I will pay the postage, that's a promise. If some one has a list of local papers for us to start writing great! Bring your ideas since I feel short of great ideas to get the word out.
If anyone gets a letter to the editor published in thier local paper or the strib let us know so we can thank you. Now onto my long delayed scribling. I think my point to day would be that I don't car about positioning and what party people are in I just want a president I can trust.
One of the reasons that Russ is a great candidate is because he doesn't have to run on specific issues. He can and will explain his thoughts.The wellspring of his political reasoning is the law and ethics.
Our bumper sticker should be this:
no more lies
Feingold for president.
Feingolds strength on issues across the board is his honesty. He is not an exhibitionist screaming his faith or morals to the world. He is honest on any political issue in front of him. I think that is why other more senior senators will listen and work with him. I am choosing a leader I can trust this year, even though I might not agree with him on every issue , at least I want an honest person there.
Oh yeah I really don't think we should forget about the war and competance as an issue.
Here is a video I found, maybe some of you have seen it.
Oh yeah there is a meet up on the ninth and I have some folks asking around up here. Let's do it.
I geuss when I read through other sites there is a lot of political hack talk. What positions and so on. Does he support this issue or that issue. I would like to stop for a moment and consider this... I have made up my mind, I don't need to know Feingold's finely tuned sound bite. I want Feingold cause we can trust him. The way he thinks about goverment and it's duty is how I think goverment should be run.
Yes he has some stunts that are barnstomer kind of tactics. An example would be the returning of his raise every year. I really don't think that is that important, heck if he needs the money take it. you know what he does it anyway-that is just one of his quirks. It is not going to cause a global calamity.
Yes he is divorced-I could care less. He has proven his mettle and earned the trust of the voters. He really is looking out for us.
Anyway I hope that there are more people than just joe and I at the meet up on march 9th.
The other meet ups had some good ideas and I am thinking that we should start trying to keep up with local papers and start letters to the editors. We must raise an awareness for Feingold.
I don't know everyone of Feingold's positions
I don't know if he will win
I don't know if he can really pull those southern farmers
I do know that he cannot be a bad choice as President. He is the most American of candidates at a time when we need competance and honesty in goverment.
I like all of the democratic candidates that have been mentioned. I think any of them would be better than what we have but if we want to reclaim our rights and our American identity as a freedom loving , law abiding and thinking nation we need to elect a President that shows the capacity for a democracy to change.
I don't think Feingodl is that far left quite honestly. I always felt that he was in the middle and then the middle shifted.
His record speaks. I have watched his speaches and lived in areas that voted for him and I can tell you that Wisconsin is great. It is an efficient state with great services, great schools, and great people. They are not raving liberals yet they know that Feingold is real leadership and that is precisely what we need. I think there is potential for a great President in Feingold that will realize many goals of America.
I think Feingold at the very least will be able to bury the partisanship that has so poisened our political atmosphere. If that is the only thing that the next President does they will have done an invaluble service to every American alive since that is what is truely paralyzing this country.
This vapid , intellectually crushing, repetitive , name calling, bitter, broken partisanship.
Lets have a leader that can talk.
Let's have a leader that can stand up.
Let's have a leader not afraid to take a position and then have the presense of mind to explain why he did so.
If you want to see footage of Feingold explaining his policies and beliefs go here
Then go and search for Feingold.
