What do Sean Penn and Ashley Sanders Have in Common?

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

-Mahatma Gandhi

Ralph Nader/ Matt Gonzalez 2008

Just like at the lockers in high school, some things never change…like the kids who do their homework, earn good grades, speak well, maybe smoke a little more pot, cut a few horribly boring classes and stick up for the retarded kids are beaten up and laughed at by the kewl-kids, jocks, cheerleaders and all around bullies whose single minded focus was to always follow the crowd and not ask questions. For some reason, that ilk scrambles for the One Big Money Party, even when it kicks them down.

These days, a great many of those follow-the-crowd-lemmings have signed onto the Democratic Party which has, like the GOP, SOLD OUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Click on the above video and listen to this excellent, intelligent speech by Ashley Sanders on what this election means for the future of our democracy, our freedoms, and our economy.

Ashley describes her attendance at the so-called 'progressive', pro-corporate welfare crowd's Take Back America conference in Washington, D.C. that drew the lemmings out in full force.

Listen to Ashley. If you care. Or make that, if you dare.

Very nice video! I hope she has her speech written down somewhere.

Isn't she great? She would be great on the stump. One commenter made a good point about her appearance: she needs to lose the thing in her hair and wear more 'adult' clothing.

This young woman reminds me of people I know, as do any Nader supporter I have met. And the increasingly rabid Democrats remind me more these days of the jerks at the lockers in high school.
