Anti-war activists need to back Sheehan and then go green

As a follow-up to my post about the anti-war protesters who wasted their time at Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’ office this week, here are two concrete suggestions for activism that will actually promote their cause, instead of making them look like wackos.

First, they need to pile into their hippie vans and drive up to San Francisco so they can help their fellow Democrat and anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan. She is running for Congress against Democrat House Leader Nancy Pelosi. Perfect! They can register their disgust with Pelosi by helping to defeat her.

After they accomplish that mission, and especially if they fail to elect Sheehan, they need to quit the Democratic Party and go Green – that is to say join Nativo Lopez over at the Green Party. Then they ought to do what I did when I quit the GOP and mail or fax copies of their new voter registration cards to their county Democratic Party Chairman; the state Democratic Party Chairman; and the Democrat National Committee Chairman. And let them know why they are leaving.

Protesting at Congresswoman Sanchez’ office is a giant counterproductive waste of time. These activists need to stop wasting their time and get busy doing something useful. Sheehan could use their help.

You can read Sheehan’s campaign announcement at her website, at this link. In her own words, “I dedicate my candidacy to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan that have been tragically harmed by Bush Co. with the complicity of Congress, Inc.” Si se puede!
