Democracy Now with Congressperson Maxine Waters



Congesswoman Maxine Waters of California had some good things to say the other day. She was on Deocracy NOw with Amy Goodman. She speaks to the issue of war and doesn't skirt around it like has been the norm since the State of the Union Address.

I especially like the fact that she mentions politicians are not willing to risk their political careers to take a stand. She has invited. in somecases challenged, other Congressp[eople and Senators of both parties to march in this Saturdays Peace March and Rally in Washington DC.

Overall, I like Democracy Now to get some stories that you won'y hear on network bought and paid for TV. This is a good example. Please CHECK THIS OUT.

Nice to hear a few people mention this.
Although we all know it's always been this way: saying what the Voters want to hear.
Maybe this will change, even a little bit? Let's hope so!
DN is indeed worthy of any reading, among a few others! ; )

Yup I like what she has to say and that she's saying it. I wish there were more like her.
I like Democracy Now too.
