[Crossposted from Docudharma]Thank you Chris Dodd.
This is Leadership, this IS how it works.
Until one person says no, evil cannot be stopped. Until one respected figure, one LEADER, finds the courage to step forward and OPPOSE, weaker people, not finding the courage within themselves, have nowhere to turn and no one to follow.
The sad, no....the horrifying part, is that it is not one of the leading candidates, the 'mainstream' candidates, the 'electable' candidates who stood up for our rights and for the Rule of Law. Now after being led by Dodd, they are (seemingly a bit reluctantly) falling in line. Because the power of no cannot be denied.
Is our politicians learning?
Let us hope to god they are, for as we all know, the stakes are incredibly high.
"When you give up basic Constitutional rights, you give terrorists a far greater victory in ways." Dodd said.One man stood up and said no!
And...was rewarded by The People. Contributions totalling over $200,000 in just 36 hours, as well as with adulation in the blogosphere and beyond.
For saying what amounts to one word....no.
What we have been saying on the blogs for quite a while has now penetrated the MSM's bubble. Watch this Chris Mattews interview. The Democratic Party's "strategy" of cowering before Bush is being exposed already, more than a full year before the election. Cowards do NOT win elections. Right now, as Dodd has proven, standing up to Bush and saying no is leading. It is newsworthy. It is popular. It is a winning strategy. And it is what it will take to begin to reverse the damage.
One would think it would be obvious Saying no to the most unpopular President ever.....makes you popular.
Whoever says no to George Bush INSTANTLY gains support.
This is not politics as usual....because people are DYING because of Bush, this is not 'an issue,' It is literally a life and death struggle. Whoever says no to George Bush is an instant hero to the 75% of the country who disapprove of The Worst President ever. It seems like a no-brainer, but it took one man to do it, to stop the pathetic, pervasive capitulation that has swept the Democrats like a virus.
Let's hope it is contagious.
Let's hope it is a trend.
Let's hope that it leads to a rash of saying no.
Because once the first no appears and is successful, who knows where no can lead.
Chris Dodd is the first to point out that the Emperor has no clothes. Learn his lesson Democrats....if you want to be elected....Just say no.
But more importantly, if you want to take America back and restore Justice and the Rule of Law, the whole process starts with just one tiny word....
