HEALTH Care as a CIVIL RIGHT - Dennis Kucinich has it right-JUST Another Day In Paradise....The Rantings of A MAD WOMAN


By Dennis Kucinich

Dear Friends,

There is only one true health care public option: Single payer. It covers everyone, all basic health care needs, with doctor of choice. No more premiums, co-pays or deductibles. All health care assets in America would become not-for-profit. The bill already exists. It is HR 676. Congressman John Conyers and I wrote the bill. Our bill has the support of 85 co-sponsors in the House. And it is backed by a growing national movement of labor, doctors, and nurses. The movement needs you. Please join me for tomorrow's national conference call at 10:00pm EDT. Please call toll-free 1-800-230-1096.

The hour has arrived to begin anew the Civil Rights Movement, this time for Health Care for All. I am calling upon you to become a force in this movement. Go to Health Care as A Civil Right at to learn how you can circulate a single-payer petition and organize in your community. Please help fund this effort. Go to now, contribute.

The Preamble to the United States Constitution and Article One, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution both describe an originating purpose of our United States: to promote the general welfare. Health care is a legitimate function of our government. Health care is a basic right in a Democratic society. It is no more a privilege based on ability to pay than is the right to vote, which was once accorded only to property owners.

Health care is also a moral imperative. Forty seven million Americans are uninsured. Fifty million Americans are underinsured. People are losing their homes, their jobs, their life's savings, their retirement security and their financial health because they cannot pay medical bills, and despite this calamity Washington looks another way. We must not avert our eyes to this human suffering and this economic injustice.

Let's prepare a response which Washington will long remember as the time when the people reclaimed their government from the insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Join us. Contribute. Together, we can initiate an action plan to intervene and provide health care for all.

1. A National Health Care for All Conference Call from Washington, DC, at 10 pm EDT, Thursday, September 10th at 1-800-230-1096. Join us, so that we can discuss our new beginning and ways in which we can all help. Pre-registration is necessary in order to reserve sufficient phone lines. Please RSVP here. When you call in and the operator asks, "what conference call?" tell the operator, "Health Care for All."

2. On-line petition. Please contact your lists, your family and friends. Please sign the petition for a single payer system. I will deliver the petitions directly to your Congressperson.

3. Petition to download, print and circulate among friends and neighbors - including an instruction sheet.

4. Health Care Meet-Ups. Coming Thursday September 10 2009.

5. Tell A Friend. Every email forwarded will make a difference? Please use the "Forward Email" link below to circulate up to 5 emails at a time to your friends.

I need your help to initiate this action.

Dennis Kucinich is a congressman from Ohio and a 2008 presidential primary candidate.


The Mad Woman Speaks:

I find it interesting for those of us who have lived and worked and acted in this country to support this country - born, paid taxes, volunteered, gave of themselves in a variety of ways, to a country that CLAIMS on its basic doctrine - its holiest of holies...the CONSTITUTION...EVEN the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE from a tyrannical overlord-that we ARE OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE......
I find it BEYOND ABSURD that as citizens, we have become so alienated, so unwilling to accept its place as the holdovers and sole owners of that government that they deny...fully and completely deny any part!

WE THE PEOPLE have the right to dictate to that government that it is FOR the PEOPLE - not a separate entity to pass laws and set programs that have nothing to do with us; A GOVERNMENT that sets limits and bars of achievement that we are not able to attain by the simple fact of our existence....

  • WHEN did we become separate? When did WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, retract our declaration?
  • When did it become OK for us to give up our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of HEALTH?
  • It is NOW OK to be slaves for the government to screw us out of everything for which my forefathers fought in 1775 and 1812; 1861 (for 5 bloody YEARS of self mutilation) and 1917 and again 1941 to assure that ALL CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES
  • would have and hold?

NOTHING could be further from the truth...We tell ourselves that each and every day, from dawn to dusk as we feverishly dream the truth that eats at our soulless existence...We have usurped our OWN POWER!

Think outside that politician defined cell of slavery that has been created by our own refusal to be involved in self-governance.

Stop being the lazy kowtowing, noninvolved Renfield allowing our "elected" officials to continue sucking us dry and binding us with smooth rhetoric and whiney "oh we can''s too expensive:"..."oh, no- we can't regulate corporations - free enterprise ya know"; "oh no, we have to maintain the system status quo" - If we don't.....we will....." IMPLODE!!!!!!

Anything else is

and any other
"ISM" with which to baffle a mind mushed minion...

DUMBING DOWN of America is to CONTROL America. A systematized manipulation to keep us OPPRESSED and to stop us from demanding the SAME rights we demanded from KING GEORGE in 1775!

Grow a pair and demand our rights FINALLY!

For over 200 years we rant and rave and throw our exceptionalist ideal that we are bigger, better, best and greatest country because we have LIFE AND LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.....

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Don't let those self anointed, mass appointed, completely disjointed assholes, who have gotten us to put them in Washington, continue that scam on us...

WE are the government and we need to take back that responsibility with all the hell and nightmarish, awesomeness that it brings...WE ARE the people who are to be proud and worthy of such an awesome power - to use it and not abuse it any longer.

OWN it; BE it...but stop giving it away....

- TAKE BACK what we pay for every second of every day
OR just shut off the lights...WE the People don't live here anymore...Just pack our bags and move out...leave it to the corporations to fight over- We don't deserve to be here any longer
