View Full Version : Which liberals are in the most danger?

I know that the Republicans are really out to get Kucinich and McKinney. Kucinich usually wins by a huge margin, but Bush is spending a lot of money against him. They are also clearly spending a lot of money against McKinney and are busy rigging voting machines for Hank Johnson.
Which other races do we need to focus on?
Would a push for funds give the California Senate Seat to Todd Chretien? If so, we need to really fight for that one. I think Michael Berg can win the Delaware seat with a little help.
Does anyone know if McDermott or Stark are in any danger?
Although, I don't agree with Ron Paul on a lot of issues, I don't want that "conservative" Democratic hawk winning his seat.

but without a huge groundswell of support and grassroots $$ donations I'm not sure about either of those ones. To be frank, I don't see that the non-Duopoly candidates have the infrastructure and broad support or money resources to win without a miraculous awe-inspiring turn of events and the accompanying groundswell (not to mention the cheating in the election process). Nevertheless if we never step up to the plate, there's not even the possibility of hitting the home run.
If you (Genius) or any others really want to see something incredible happen IMO we need to pick one or just a few candidates and pour out our hearts for them. Others may be able to ride their coat tails on to victory. Its a symbolic struggle. If we even get close it will be a huge victory and the whole world will sit up and take notice that changes are afoot. I think Berg is our best choice (although I'm open to being persuaded that someone else would be a better choice).
To be most effective I believe we need to nationalize the election by picking some peace candidates (and Berg or Chretian are both good possibilities) and use their race as a rallying point so that all our local peace candidates become seen by the public as (whoever our candidate is)-like. Whether we like it our not the contemporary American mentality is so reductionistic this is a strategy that would be successful IMO.
