Big Brass Alliance get a new member


The alliance is a group of Progressive Bloggers who wish to pressure the US into conduction an investigation into the Bush Regime's roll in lying to start a war. As Ralph Nader puts it:

"President Clinton was impeached for perjury about his sexual relationships. Comparing Clinton's misbehavior to a destructive and costly war occupation launched in March 2003 under false pretenses in violation of domestic and international law certainly merits introduction of an impeachment resolution."

I am proud to join the ranks of Gretchen and Mark to push for the truth and to fight the neo-con, neo-facist government that has taken over our neighbour to the south.

Hit DailyKos, well daily, to get updates on our efforts to wake up the mainstream media.

And before any of my Canadian Conservative fans start up, I want them to remember this (thanks Mark):

By Stephen Harper and Stockwell Day

Today, the world is at war. A coalition of countries under the leadership of the U.K. and the U.S. is leading a military intervention to disarm Saddam Hussein. Yet Prime Minister Jean Chretien has left Canada outside this multilateral coalition of nations.

This is a serious mistake. For the first time in history, the Canadian government has not stood beside its key British and American allies in their time of need. The Canadian Alliance -- the official opposition in parliament -- supports the American and British position because we share their concerns and their worries about the future if Iraq is left unattended; and we share their fundamental vision of civilization and human values.

Disarming Iraq is necessary for the long-term security of the world, and for the collective interests of our key historic allies. It is, therefore, also manifestly in the national interest of Canada. Make no mistake, as our allies work to end the reign of Saddam and the brutality and aggression that are the foundations of his regime, Canada's largest opposition party, the Canadian Alliance, will not be neutral. In our hearts and minds, we will be with our allies and friends. And Canadians will be overwhelmingly with us.

But we will not be with the Canadian government.

Modern Canada was forged in large part by war, not because it was easy, but because it was right. In the great wars of the last century, against authoritarianism, fascism, and communism, Canada did not merely stand with the Americans. More often than not we led the way. We did so for freedom, for democracy, for civilization itself. These values continue to be embodied in our allies and their leaders, and scorned by the forces of evil, including Saddam Hussein and the perpetrators of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. That is why we will stand, and I believe most Canadians will stand with us, for these higher values which shaped our past, and which we will need in an uncertain future.

Let the games begin!
