About Me

Ran for US Congress in 1990 from the left. Chairperson of 1989 city advisory initiative calling for 10% reduction in military spending to be divided among deficit reduction and mass transit and social services. Being a miliary town nobody thought we'd get on the balllot let alone win with 64% of the vote. Former chair of peace and justice project for a UMC congregation in Tacoma, Washington.

Willard's Dollar's

One of the biggest problems I percieve with Romney is that he uses his money to stifle free expression and participation in the Democratic process. Two of his statements made that clear: A) I made Ted Kennedy take a second mortgage out on his house to run against me. B)If you need income in the political position you are running for, you shouldn't run.

21 years ago I ran against a 14 year entrenched incumbant from the left. I did it on 58K and he spent 500K I got 42% of the primary vote. We were both not rich and yes it was an uphill fight but I was still there in the ballgame. I couldn't do that today...not with a guy like Willard.

Romney instead of using his fortune for the common good, uses it instead to stifle people and to enrich himself even further. Willard is the classic example of the problem that really started with Reagan when he ran: it's ok to be selfish!

Not only is Willard a stiff, wierd son of a bitch, but he is a self centered, smug bastard as well. His attitude smacks of I've got mine so fuck you!!!

Let us pray that this asshole doesn't get the presidency!
