politics { speaking the truth

I was unable to watch the Democratic candidates debate, but I heard a quote from Mike Gravel, former senator from Alaska. Obama was talking about Iran and nuclear proliferation. I heard this quote at the end of the video and cheered.

On the military industrial complex

The best... on the other candidates

There's a whole slew of 'em and I really like this guy. He passionate and says what should be said.

I need to find a full video of the debate. It looks like it was a good one.

Bravo Gravel! He said some things that needed to be said definitely.

I'm still reserving judgment until I find out more about the candidates, and with 8 in the field (tho 2 previous candidates and 1 well known, that should help) its time consuming to get enough information to make a decision.

Interesting, Gravel was passed off as 'spirited' by KTTC news (local Rochester news, not known as a bastion of journalistic excellence and I believe owned by the local FOX affiliate) and they did not put any of his sound bytes up last night.

You can watch the full debate at MSNBC.com... there's also a YouTuber who is putting up the debate bit by bit. It's my personal preference since I don't have to watch commercials.

I am a private citizen trying to work out an appearance for Mike Gravel at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities sometime early in the fall. I just got in touch with his campaign about it. If you would like to help out, email them at april@gravel08.us.
