Sincere Politicians

Politicians who no longer represent interests of people, and instead represent big money and big corporations must be critiqued, and their money interests exposed.

But, at the same time, we should not lose sight of politicians, who against incredible odds - continue to do their best - and stand for ideals and principles - and not $$$. Two such sincere politicians are Barabara Lee, and Cynthia Mckinney - over the next two days we'll explore their backgrounds and contrast their campaigen financing with those who represent corporations.

Come back tomorrow (Monday, August 2nd) for the first installment covering Congresswoman Barbara Lee .

Peter Camejo (Ralph Nader's running mate) has written an essay on the 2004 elections that is well worth reading, and considering the issues presented:

...there is massive popular opposition to the war in Iraq and to the USA PATRIOT Act -- possibly a majority of Americans. Yet these same people are about to vote in overwhelming numbers for John Kerry for President.

But John Kerry and his running mate, John Edwards, gave President Bush 18 standing ovations in January, voted for the war, say the war was right, insist on continuing the occupation of Iraq

...The Democrats' fear of Ralph Nader is rooted in the programmatic conflict between their Party's stance and their supporters. This is the real story of the 2004 elections.

...Ralph Nader has created a small hole in the dam. The danger is real. The Democrats are on an all out effort to attack the Nader/Camejo campaign because if voters begin to vote for what they want the entire electoral system would begin to unravel. If twenty million citizens voted for Nader it would be the beginning of the end of the two-party system.
