YOU AND I NEED TO GET BUSY RIGHT NOW TO STOP BUSH AND "BUCKSHOT" FROM ATTACKING IRAN! LISTED BELOW ARE OUR ALLIES WHO VOTED AGAINST THE AMENDMENT AUTHORISING THE ATTACK. CLICK ON THE NAME - SEND 15 OR 20 EMAILS. DO IT NOW.

The Kyl-Lieberman amendment buys into the Bushite myths about Iran, calls for the entire Iranian military to be designated "Global Terrorists" under a Bush executive order, and states that it should be U.S. policy to use all instruments of our national power (specifically including "military instruments") to confront the "destabilizing influence" of Iran. Here are the Senators who had the sound mind to vote against the amendment:

Biden (D-DE)
Bingaman (D-NM)
Boxer (D-CA)
Brown (D-OH)
Byrd (D-WV)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Dodd (D-CT)
Feingold (D-WI)

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
