Gold Star Mother Runs for Congress
Gold Star Mother Cindy Sheehan, a prominent anti-war activist and OYE member, is running for Congress against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] in San Francisco.
This blog has repeatedly urged Americans who oppose government policies to express their concerns through the political process to their Members of Congress, rather than ordinary American servicemembers, including military recruiters, who are simply doing their jobs. Ms. Sheehan is doing exactly that. You don't have to agree with her political views to support her expressing them through the political process established by our Constitution.
We thank Ms. Sheehan, a Gold Star Mother, for helping to restore Americans' faith in our democracy.
Note to pro-war conservatives:
Cindy Sheehan is seeking to unseat the Speaker of the House, of the Democratic Party, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi. You may wish to consider the Middle Eastern proverb, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Enjoy!
