Cynthia McKinney Re-elected
Just a note. The name Cynthia McKinney may not mean much to most of you. She was however, the first member of Congress to say that the Bush administration ignored warnings about September 11th, and also stated that members of the BUsh administration might have benefitted financially.
In the anti-dissent America of 2002, she was not surprisingly defeated. But what is surprising is, she won re-election to congress, in Georgia, in 2004! And without back-tracking, or retraction. SO we do know there will be a least a little 'speaking truth to power' when Congress comes back into session.
All is not gloom and doom.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
