  1. Amazing, how groups that claim to be against Bush will, never the less, do as much as they can to alienate, and ostrasize the most committed of activists, to obstruct the dissemination of information on the scarier issues that could galvanize the movement, and ultimately unify the opposition into an effective movement. I have to wonder who the people running these ineffective groups really work for. Michael Patterson/Carver

  2. Russ Feingold is the only democrat that is strong enoough to run for President. We have
    a group of Domocrats that can not make a stand only policy, That is why this Administration
    has gotten away with all this spending and the war in Iraqi. Democrazts get off your
    duffs and get a backbone. If you don;t have a backbone go home and resign.

  3. One of the greatest traditions of true American patriotism is one, solitary voice speaking out against tyranny, in any shape, or form, and Russ Feingold has exposed the lawlessness of President Bush, who has deliberately, with premediated willingness, violated the federal laws of the nation by carrying out an illegal wire tapping against the people of this country! Yes, the President should be censured, yes, he should be impeached! Now, all American patriots should get the job done in order to save our Constitution, and preserve our democracy!

  4. What an incredible forum! Thank you so much for holding it. We on the other side of the country (the left side :)) salute you and stand with you.

  5. WOW! What a tremendously moving presentation. All the information we need was there – and said in a very personal way. The TRUTH is being told and this was a great format for getting it out. I’m going to send this to everybody I know. And I’m also going to use the model to bring the message to my own community of Whatcom County Washington state.
    Thank you so much for making this available to us.

  6. [...] A few months ago, I attended a Town Hall Forum on Iraq, sponsored by the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice. There, I met David Swanson, a powerful man driven by great passions who has the ability to pull people into his own gravitational field. David invited me to join the CCPJ’s Speakers Committee, which is how I found myself helping to bring Cindy Sheehan to Charlottesville on May 17th and, improbably, why I will be up on stage M.C.ing the event…!
