Cindy Sheehan leaves the Democratic party. All liberals would do well to consider the same.

The Camp Casey Peace Institute is calling all citizens who are as disgusted as we are with you all to join us in Philadelphia on July 4th to try and figure a way out of this "two" party system that is bought and paid for by the war machine which has a stranglehold on every aspect of our lives. As for myself, I am leaving the Democratic Party. You have completely failed those who put you in power to change the direction our country is heading. We did not elect you to help sink our ship of state but to guide it to safe harbor.

We do not condone our government's violent meddling in sovereign countries and we condemn the continued murderous occupation of Iraq.

We gave you a chance, you betrayed us.

Frankly, merely withdrawing from the party is not good enough in my opinion. We need to start hitting these demagogues where it really hurts. By organizing recall elections on those who claim to be Democrats, but are still caving in to Dubya at every opportunity. The first target should be Pelosi. She, in particular, should be leading the charge for defunding the war and impeaching Dubya - the exact opposite of what she's actually been doing.

Of course, this isn't going to happen. The Democrats have already decided what they're going to do. They're going to intentionally stand by and do nothing while innocent American soldiers and Iraqi civilians both continue to die in huge numbers. And the American people are also going to stand idly by and watch it happen.
