Coleen Rowley should put down her protest sign and pick up her yard sign. She should run against flip-flop Betty McCollumn or baby-bomber Keith Ellison!

These people are so brave! Hollywood has decided to remain silent so they aren't accused of being racist (Ed Asner).

The Washington Post thinks that Sen. Klobuchar is still undecided, and that both Sen. Franken and Rep. Ellison are planning to vote for President Obama's war on Syria. Next month, representatives who vote to spend billions of dollars dropping bombs an Syria will probably be complaining about an expanded sequester but by spending $1 for every tomahawk missile, there will be that much less for Meals on Wheels and other such programs. This vote is about priorities.

Sen. Franken and Rep. Ellison are planning to vote for President Obama's war on Syria. They don't listen to their constituents! They need to be out of office in the next election. Who wants elected officials that goes against the majority of their constituents desires/wishes? They are suppose to be representatives of their districts; not do as they wish to.

I am very happy to see these people protesting no matter who is President. Anything less from anyone who protested against Iraq and Afghanistan is a hypocrite in my opinion. Let's stop this insanity and keep these protests growing stronger by the day!

Yes as a 37 year old Human Being I voted for President Obama. I do not regret voting for President Obama. I The USA needs A Black President. Obama has done a far better job than Sarah Palen, Mitt Romney or Senator Mcain. For me I respect those who vote and the voting matters. It's a Human Right. I have full respect for the Planet Earth. I rent an apartment, pay taxes. ride my bike as well as live with in my means. I am a preschool teacher and I am quite proud to serve the USA. I am no better than any other Human Being. Let me remind the rest of the Human Beings in the U.S it is a God Given Right under the constitution to change ones mind about who they personally voted for based on that Human Beings Actions. I have Hope and I have faith in President Obama but it is a deal breaker for me to see United Sates Government Tax Dollars used to kill other Humans in the name of War. I support Democracy and the Safety of Homeland Security but as a Human Beings two wrongs do not make a right. Right now We as Humans Beings should be using our Tax Dollars for Social Security, Health Care, Jobs, Higher Wages, Roads, Global Warming Reform as well as Infrastructure, Transportation, Schools and Colleges. This isn't Liberalism or Socialism this is Love for the United States and its past, present and future generations. The USA Need Humans that were born in the 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's and NOW to Stand up organize and say NO MORE!!! It's not the 60's its 2013 NOW and WE will live NOW. NO more Fear, or Fascism. We are Free in the USA. I am only 37 and I will not live in Fear nor am I afraid to die for my country helping other Humans see the reality of living on Planet Earth with out Drones, Ground Troops or Chemical Warfare. No Human Being is perfect. No Country is Perfect but WE are the United States and WE have the Power to make Change.Do it for your children grand children and for the rest of Human Survival. 2013 NOW. God Bless All Humans!!! God Bless the USA!!!
