Sorry Republicans, this one's no joke
Dear Friends and relitives, This was sent to by the actor Peter Coyote. Its
a letter from the film maker Michael Moore and I think it's a great effort.
Please forward it on if you believe......
Dear Friends...
This is a copy of a letter by Michael Moore. I hope that you will read it
and forward it to ten friends and urge them to forward it to ten friends,
and in that letter also, please urge each and every one of them to be sure
and vote in this upcoming election. Just imagine these Republicans with a
filibuster proof majority!
Ok, I've had it. The right wing is trying to overturn a national election
because... they didn't like the results! This must be stopped. I would like
to propose a legal act of civil disobedience that could send the Right into
near oblivion.
I am not a member of the Democratic Party. To me, they are a
barely-tolerable version of the Republicans.
I did not vote for Clinton in 1996. I had voted for him in '92, but could
not in good conscience vote for him again (NAFTA, welfare, etc.).
We had the lowest turnout ever in 1996, but the majority who could stomach
that pathetic choice on the ballot went and voted for Bill Clinton. That was
the will of the people. And that is the will the Republicans are trying to
All the public opinion polls -- New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN --
have said the same thing over and over: The American public does NOT want
impeachment. Yet, Congress has decided to tell the public to take a flying
%$#& and has moved ahead with the impeachment process anyway.
This is their fatal mistake and it will be their undoing.
I have never seen the American public so fed up and disgusted that they are
ready to do anything now to stop this madness.
I wish our members of Congress had listened to the polls. But they haven't.
So, now we have to make them listen to the other polls, the only ones they
understand -- the polls that are filled with voting booths on November 3.
The act of civil disobedience I am calling for is for each and every
American to go to the polls on November 3 and vote for the Democratic
candidate for Congress on your ballot. That's right, my fellow cynics and
progressives-- the only way to send a true message to the right wing is to
throw every Republican out of office. I'm talking about a backlash the likes
of which American politics has never seen. If you think this is something
that can't happen, I need only point to the national election In Canada in
1993 when the voters threw all but two members of the Conservative Party out
of Parliament. In 1995, in Great Britain, the people of Scotland and Wales
removed every single member of the Torries from Parliament -- that's right,
Now it's our turn in America. Each of us must do all that we can to get our
fellow citizens out to vote on November 3. The Republicans are hoping and
praying that the turnout will be low, figuring that the public, especially
those who had voted for and trusted Clinton, is so burned out on politicians
and politics that they are just going to stay home. They know, though, that
their own diehard conservative supporters WILL be at the polls, come hell or
high water.
I realize a lot of you have had it and probably want to turn your back on
the whole damn thing. I don't blame you. But if we don't vote, we're
essentially placing our democracy in the hands of some very bad people and
we will surely suffer the consequences of this for years to come.
Yes, most of the Democrats suck. I rarely vote for the sorry, wishy-washy
losers. But this election is not about how I feel about them -- it's about
US using THEM to whack the right wing for good. Imagine if the Democrats are
voted in by overwhelming numbers (when all the pundits are predicting a
Republican landslide). The message would be loud and clear to all these new
Yes, we would then have to stay on these Democrats to make sure they behave
and vote the way we want them to. But that's a whole lot better than
allowing individuals to stay in office who want to subvert the will of the
American people because they would actually prefer a theocracy over a
I wish we had more than two political parties and I will continue to work
toward that goal. Two parties cannot represent the broad spectrum of
political thought in a country of 270 million people.
But that is not the mission before us. If you want to stop this witch hunt,
if you want Congress to start focusing on the REAL problems facing the
country and the world, then the ONLY way this nonsense is going to stop is
to throw the bums out.
Find out who the Democrat is who is running in your district , and then call up his/her headquarters and
volunteer to help turn out the vote.
Then get out and vote November 3. Hold your nose if you have to. This is a
one-issue election and if you want the impeachment stopped -- and I assure
you, you have the power to stop it at 8:01 PM that evening of November
3--you must remove the Republicans in your districts.
I can think of a lot of reasons why Clinton should not be President.
Staining a blue dress from The Gap is not one of them. Enough is enough
