Vote for a U.S. Department of Peace
I want to share with this community an opportunity to support the growing demand for a U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence. There is currently an online event taking place at www.Change.org that is asking for the top 10 "Ideas for Change in America'.
Ranked # 1 in the category of Other, is "Appoint Secretary of Peace in Department of Peace"
Why is this important you might ask?? The top 10 rated ideas will be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009 as the "Top 10 Ideas for America." Change.org will then launch a national campaign behind each idea and mobilize the collective energy of the millions of members of Change.org, MySpace, and partner organizations to ensure that each winning idea gets the full consideration of the Obama Administration and Members of Congress. Instead of passively hoping the administration accepts each top idea, Chnge.org will select a formal nonprofit sponsor for each idea to help create a nationwide movement to lobby the administration and Congress to turn the idea into real policy.
Would you be willing to support a request for help? Please click for PEACE below and vote on the #1 Department of Peace idea on www.Change.org
You can go to www.Change.org and click Ideas and then Top Rated Ideas to find it.
Would you be willing to share the link above in an email to friends, groups you know, blog it, bulletin it or post the widgety thing on your website??
Please help support this idea and take that extra step. It really works.
Thank you Thank you!!!

We have to resist the cynicism and the hopelessness which would tell us, "Oh, they're just going to steal [the election] again - I'm not going to vote!" because that becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy where you steal the election from yourself. If we abandon the process, the self-fulfilling prophesy of destruction of democracy takes over.
