Anderson Manifesto starts with Labor Day...

Made reference to Rocky Anderson's speech given @ Washington Square in Salt Lake City: did you ever think this would become the bastion of a New Era of freedom? We have not read or heard as strong and clear a voice since the two Kennedys left us +/- forty years ago.

I'll admit I haven't been there for nearly twenty years, when the Rio Grande Café put out the best Mexican plates... read these words:

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.

- We are here today as truth-tellers.
- And we are here to demand:
"Give us the truth! Give us the truth! Give us the truth!"”

Rocky, welcome home, thanks for showing some of us that there is truth in the truth, a clean force for good. You speak to the progressive audience, and you speak to the progressive construct of lies that the misAdministration offered in a sequence destined to alter (as they wished: PNAC) world history through activist foreign policy.

I certainly prefer an activist judge to an activist Secretary of ___ (Defense, State, or even Vice President). Rocky also said:

“We are here to say, "We will not stand for it any more. No more lies. No more pre-emptive, illegal war, based on false information. No more God-is-on-our-side religious nonsense to justify this immoral, illegal war. No more inhumanity."

“Let's raise our voices, and demand, "Give us the truth! Give us the truth! Give us the truth!"”

As ML King said “From every mountainside, let freedom ring.”

How do we sleep when our beds are burning?”
