Dear fellow peace advocates,
We have a chance to make a major difference in the Democratic presidential campaign. MoveOn.org has become a powerful lobbying and fundraising force with about 2.5 million participating members. They have decided to endorse a pro-peace-and-justice presidential candidate if one gets more than 50% of the vote in a primary they are holding Tuesday 6/24 and Wednesday 6/25. This means significant funds could potentially be raised for this candidate by MoveOn.org perhaps putting him/her on equal standing with the better funded "front-runner" Democrats. Thus, this primary could be more significant than any other event in the Democratic presidential.
You can register for the MoveOn.org primary by going to www.moveon.org/pac/reg/. To look at what candidates have to say for themselves go to www.moveon.org/pac/cands/. In a straw poll by MoveOn, the top three vote-getters were Dean, Kerry, and Kucinich. Kucinich is the only true peace and justice candidate among these three. Dean has been courting the defense industry and has met with none other than the more-right-wing-than-Bush Israeli premier Ariel Sharon. Kerry voted for the Iraq war. The only thing Kucinich lacks is money because he hasn't kissed any corporate ass. But if he wins the moveon.org primary, he will be able to have access to the funds he needs.
If you want a candidate whose values are 100% Green and 100% pro-labor, pro-environment, and pro-peace on the Democratic ticket, then vote Kucinich in the MoveOn.org primary. Check out his website at www.kucinich.us.
