Congressman Dennis Kucinich gave Americans a rousing wake up call Tuesday evening at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado.

2003OctKucinichBobCamilleBob and I were very impressed with Dennis when we campaigned for him on Maui in October of 2003 and have championed him ever since. We found him articulate, warm and extremely well-read. Most importantly, he is passionate about the issues at the top of our list, namely stopping the war, healthcare, the take-over of our economy by global corporations and a skyrocketing national debt.

Dennis Kucinich is a politician who does not flip flop. As a result, he is considered unelectable and is generally overlooked by the press and dismissed by the taxpayers he champions. Read more about this courageous man on Wikipedia.

Here is a sample highlight from his rousing speech:

Wake up America, the insurance companies took over health care.

Wake up America, the pharmaceutical companies took over drug pricing.

Wake up America, the speculators took over Wall Street.

Wake up America, they want to take your Social Security.

Wake up America, multinational corporations took over our trade policies, factories are closing, good paying jobs lost.

We get very excited when someone gets up and says what needs to be said. I hope America is listening!
