Dennis Kucinich for 2008 U.S. PresidentDennis Kucinich is vegan & has great polices & is a 2008 US Presidential Candidate - Watch this interview

Dennis Kucinich is vegan, he is an incredible candidate for peace, health care, animal rights and a number

of other issues. Normally we would not mention a candidate but Dennis Kucinich is outstanding. Sadly

the US may not be ready for someone as progressive and as interested in peace, animal rights & social

justice as Kucinich, but it is good to support candidates like him.

Watch this Thinkprogress interview with 2008 presidential candidate Kucinich.

You can also view Dennis Kucinich's policies on & on YouTube

Here is the transcript of Think Progress's interview.

House Passes ‘Terrorism’ Act Against Animal Activists
by Megan Tady
Nov. 15, 2006 – Monday afternoon, the US House of Representatives passed a bill that reclassifies unlawful animal-rights tactics as terrorism under certain conditions, even if they are non-violent.

New ‘Terrorism’ Laws to Protect Animal Abusers’ Profits (Nov 13, 2006)
As reported by The NewStandard just hours before the House took its voice vote on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), the bill will classify civil disobedience actions – such as blockades, property destruction, trespassing, and the freeing of captive animals – as terrorism.

The AETA amends current law enabling the government to prosecute activists for intentionally damaging property used by "animal enterprises" – businesses that use or sell animals. The AETA expands those provisions to enhance penalties against activists who "interfere" with animal enterprises by destroying property or engaging in behavior that appears "threatening." It even includes perceive threats to companies that work with animal enterprises and takes into account resulting profit losses.

The House passed the Senate’s version of the bill, which was approved in September. Critics consider that version bad enough, but they had been especially alarmed that a House version of the bill swept in "non-violent physical obstruction of an animal enterprise" as an offense if it causes a loss of profits. While the Senate version does not explicitly ban such activity, critics believe it to be vague enough to encompass civil disobedience in its scope.

The AETA does make specific provisions to safeguard activity protected under the First Amendment, but critics have raised concerns it could have the effect of discouraging even lawful protests.

Because only a voice vote was taken, there is no record of who approved or opposed the AETA bill. Representative Dennis Kucinich (D–Ohio) spoke against the legislation, saying it compromises civil rights and threatens to "chill" free speech.

Kucinich also addressed the animals he fears will be less protected if the legislation scares off protesters. "Just as we need to protect people’s right to conduct their work without fear of assault, so too this Congress has yet to address some fundamental ethical principles with respect to animals. How should animals be treated humanely? This is a debate that hasn't come here."

Greg ... I took two online polls consisting of all presidental candidates, and Kucinich is the only one that I agreed with on every issue. Oh! IMO he is the only man that has proved by his voting record that he is the man for the job - you know actions speak louder than words. He has been against the war from day one, for cutting funding for bush's war so his cronies like Blackwater & Exxon/mMobile couldn't make billions, for impeaching the scoundrels Bush and Cheney when the others thought he was crazy, he's for universal health care for all Americans, and is very anti-corporations talking no corporate money. Of course the war mongering power brokers including the MSM have dissipated him. So let us stand up and speak out for Kucinich now before time runs out. Just my two cents worth.

Dennis in '08 - Kucinich is the true voice of the people!:
Kucinich has done this:
(1) co-sponsoring with Rep. John Conyers HR 676, a universal health plan;
(2) voting AGAINST the Patriot Act;
(3) voting AGAINST invading Iraq;
(4) promising to withdraw from the World Trade Organization and NAFTA, & standing opposed to weapons in space;
(5) voting against a flag-burning amendment;,
(6) advocating a 12-point plan to get our troops safely out of IRAQ;
(7) voting to cut off funds for prosecuting the Iraq war;
(8) urging the signing of the Kyoto Protocols to cut down on pollution;
(9) advocating education for all, from kindergarten through college;
(10) urging the creation of a Department of Peace,
(11) ending the phony "war on drugs”;
(12) urging renewal of the environment;
(13) sponsoring H.R. 799, previously known as HR 333, to IMPEACH Vice President Dick Cheney; and
(14) abolishing the death penalty.
All of these positions favor the people over the wealthy and well-connected.

Kucinich IS wonderful. Think that he might be chosen as VP, at least?

America should press on to create peace and protection of the planet. Kucinich is the right person to do this. We pray for the best outcome for everyone. God's will.

He is direct . He never really answered the question on illegal immigrants, or did he.
"Give them a path to legalization - instead of further criminalization"..
This answer does not sit well with me.
He comes across here as a Socialist, and that is why R. (dangerous) Paul gets more time.

But I also believe NO ONE is going to limit immigration

For me this is a tremendous concern as it bears heavily on all aspects of our systems education, health care,
wages, and job availability.
The H Visa's are increased every year and then go beyond annual limitations
The illegal wave is making demands that no immigrant to any country would think of, they would just be thankful they were there. ...

K. on NAFTA ... would be great to end and begin again, but not reality with members of congress in the way

I am very sorry but I know too many people out of work because of 30 million legal & illegal immigrants in this country. I don't blame them, not one of them at all. In fact I admire them, but I also know I can not go to there country legally or illegally as easily, and stay as long, as we have here..

But our laws for legal & illegal are not being enforced.

The Federal Govt. is the biggest employer of illegal immigrants of any corp in America.
H Visas are given to companies on request, without first offering the job to an American.
OUR LAWS are for the countries stability, and without enforcing these laws we will never have stability
regardless who becomes president.

Key Issues: Healthcare (immigration)
Education (immigration)
Jobs & Good Wages (immigration)
Banks, Interest Rates, Fee's, must have caps and regulation.

This is a man to be proud of. Now if it were just possible for him to win the Democratic nomination. I don't want to vote for any of the others and there's NO WAY I'd vote for any of the Republicans.
