Should We Make Marcy Kaptur President?

What an encouraging thing it is to see the House defeat the bankster bailout, responding to the public outcry against it. How heartening that Americans are waking up enough not to roll over and bark at everything its “leaders” tell them to do.

I read some dire prediction yesterday that if we don’t fund the bailout, it will be “an economic 9/11.” Well, that’s what it is, all right: the financial version of the nation’s biggest staged fraud. Another inside job.

And it’s not just the mainstream, down-home Americans who are seeing through the lies. It’s the traders themselves on Wall Street, telling people to call their Congressmen and oppose the bailout. It’s the 200 mainstream economists who wrote to their Congressmen declaring that Paulson’s warnings are false.

For more on this, check out mainstream economist Mike Swanson’s article, written this morning in response to yesterday’s drama.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, also treat yourself to Congressman Marcy Kaptur’s 2-minute speech yesterday before Congress.

This woman is incredible. Should we write her in on the ballot next month and make her president? Check out these other video clips of Marcy before the House, made in the last week:

Crying home to Mama

Let’s Play Wall Street Bailout

Here is an older video clip of Marcy Kaptur speaking in the House:

Deceit of the North American Union

I’m serious. This woman is on fire. Should we write her in and make her president of the United States? We could do that, if October continues providing the national wake-up calls September did.

Spread Marcy Kaptur’s video clips far and wide, so everyone becomes aware of her brave efforts in Congress on behalf of freedom and truth. This woman is sincere, smart, a doer, and on the side of the people. She’s the real thing.

    Can you write in two candidates for a single election?

    My first write in goes to Ron Paul. But I’d love to see a Ron Paul / Marcy Kaptur ticket.

    Not a ‘Yank’ but I agree.
    A Ron Paul / Marct Kaptur ticket would be great!

    I decided last week that I can not vote for Barack Obama, he’s backed out on renegotiating NAFTA and repealing the tax cut for the wealthiest. I will write in Marcy Kaptur’s name, and will encourage others to do the same. That woman is one of the rare few voices in the House that represents Americans.

    Mainstream economist Mike Swanson, whose article I referenced above, today produced an audio MP3 tape in response to the Senate’s passage of the bankster bailout bill. I found it well worth listening to, partly for Mike’s understanding of finance and his ability to provide an alternative view to the story the elite are giving us, and partly because it’s very moving to see a mainstreamer, with no prior belief in the existence of a global conspiracy, to move so close to considering that.

    In Mike’s voice, we hear the voice of the people we Truthers need to reach now with our public and private presentations: those who are already starting to wake up. Like Mike, they don’t have far to go to connect all the dots.

    This is an excellent tape to send to your mainstreamer friends who are trying to make sense of this historic week. Please note that it takes about 5 minutes (at least on my computer) for the MP3 file to download. Here’s the link:

    Mike makes an inspired suggestion in this tape: that we phone not only our own House Representative but other Representatives as well. I would add to that the suggestion that we phone in particular those Representatives whom Obama and Bush are trying to sway to vote yes. You can get many of their names from the following article:

    Keep up the pressure!

    This is all well and good, but why is it everyones forgetting that there is another name on the November ballot. I may not be American but come on people ! Cynthia McKinney could be the first truly Black and Female President of the United States and she was one of the first in congress to question 911 and repeatedly calls for a new investigation ???

    BRONTE’S RESPONSE:The point is not to elect a president who’s black or who’s female but to elect a decent person who works for the people. I’m sure McKinney is that.

    To actually get a independent to get voted president, though, something more is needed. We need one person to capture the public attention, in a way Marcy Kaptur has started to do — one great person whom the whole lot of dissatisfied Americans will be inspired by and decide to write in on the ballot.

    If there are 3 or 4 people we’re splitting our votes between, we won’t be successful. But if the Truthers, joined in ranks by all the voters who are starting to see (from events this week) how truly the main party presidential candidates support the banking cartel and thumb their noses at the will and interests of the people — if both groups of voters find one star name to rally behind, we have a real chance of an independent winning the election for the first time in history.

    Marcy has this potential because of recent events and her recent actions. McKinney is mostly an unknown name to voters in the U.S., although I realize she has a strong following in the U.K. I don’t know that Marcy is the answer, but depending on what happens in the weeks between now and November, she could be. We need a strong candidate to capture the public attention here, to rally the public support.

    Marcy Kaptur is my hero and has been ever since she led the fight against NAFTA in the House, together with David Bonier.

    But folks, please be clear. Marcy Kaptur is a staunch New Deal Democrat. She is for strong regulation of Wall Street. Amen to that. Ron Paul or any stripe of Republican she emphatically is not.

    If there’s ever a Kaptur for president movement it will have my full support. But this time I’m voting for McKinney, since California is a for-sure blue state.
