Dear Texas Members of Progressive Democrats of America (PDA),


Cindy Sheehan, friend and ally of PDA, has come to Crawford, Texas to demand that President Bush explain why he sent her son to die in Iraq. Clearly it wasn’t to find weapons of mass destruction, and the Downing Street Memos make it clear that Bush didn’t have a plan for creating stability in the region.

We think Cindy deserves an answer. Bush should be confronted by what he has created in Iraq and explain to Cindy why he thought it was necessary for Casey Sheehan and almost 2000 other American sons and daughters to die there.

I just spoke with Cindy and here are some things she said we could do to support her:

1. Come to Crawford and join Cindy outside of Bush’s ranch. Let Bush see the crowd grow over time; let him know this is not going away. Contact us and let us know you are going. We'll share the latest updates and give you directions. (If you must choose just one day to go, think about this Thursday! Rumsfield and Rice are due to visit Bush for meetings that day. We want them to see a large gathering with signs saying: BUSH: MEET WITH CINDY!

2. Make a sign that says: BUSH: MEET WITH CINDY! and put it in your front yard. Then send us a photo of your yard sign. Send your photos to:

3. Send a letter to Bush [].

4. Call the Whitehouse at (202-456-1414) and tell them you think Bush should talk to Cindy Sheehan. Let them know that support for military families means giving them the respect they deserve, and not dodging their questions.

5. Make a donation to the Crawford Peace House. (The Crawford Peace House is allowing Cindy and others to use their facilities during their vigil.)

Then please join us in Washington DC on Sept 24-26 as we rally for the troops to come home! Or stay-tuned for updates on local opportunities!


Sept. 24 Washington Monument

Peace March, Rally & Fair
Sept. 25 University of DC

Grassroots Workshops

Sept. 26 Capitol Hill

Grassroots Lobby Day

Let's show Cindy that members of Progressive Democrats of America stand with her!

I'll be leaving Arizona and traveling to Crawford with a group of women on Tuesday. I'll see you there!

in peace and solidarity

"Dear Mr. President,

It is time for this war in Iraq to end as it has been based on complete fiction. Mr. President, you said that Iraq and 9/11 were linked together. You have later admitted that was a lie. Why do you continue to foster this lie upon the American people?

We're not stupid. We see through the bullshit, and further understand why you are lying. Why don't you come out of your delusion in that ranch on Texas, and see Cindy Sheehan directly?

Sir this proves you are a very bad liar, and that the Vice President has been actively promoting these lies. You nonetheless stated 6 days ago that our people have died for a noble cause.

Why don't you come out of your Texas house and tell the American people, including Cindy Sheehan what that noble cause is?

Her son would like to know what he died for, and so would she. My entire close knit group of friends went to Iraq because they thought it was going to defend freedom, but evidently that was a complete lie and now they are dead.

Did you know they can not come back to life? What are you hiding Mr. President? America asked you for answers, so honor the dead and honor those who have gone on. Tell them what they have really died for.

Tell them all that they died in order for your second in command to get his oil. I not only dare you, I strongly ask you now!!!!!!!!!

Stop being a coward and confront us, give us the truth!!!!!!!! The lives of all demand it, and they demand it right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who are these deceitful evil greedy people that you keep around you?

Why do they want a NEW WORLD ORDER? Mr. President, if you are a criminal then admit it to America!!!!!!!!! Hang your head in shame for selling yourself out, and being blackmailed by these traitors to our American soil!!!!!!!!

You said your mission must be for god, then wake UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fundamentalist teachings of christ, teach us we must follow one road and never falter. We must stay true to what we believe, and never question. This is WRONG!!!!!!!! The real teachings of christ tell us that we must follow our own gut, and our internal feelings of what god really wants. God does not really want the Iraq war, and you know this!!!!!!!!!!!!! So stop the lies, stop the game, it is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Give up this horrible twisted belief that has consumed you, and turn yourself over so that the truth can be known!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They have taken our flag Mr. President, and spit upon it. These traitors in Project For New American Century do not represent any type of god!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are angry, hateful vengeful people who only know greed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They have stripped you of your powers, and made you into a foolish gambit. Get out of this delusional fantasy of theirs, and stand up for yourself!!!!!!!!!!!! It is time to come clean with the American people, and tell everyone in Texas what has happened so that we can heal this country and stop the bigotry and hate in its tracks for good now.

Read their mission statement:

"Of course, the United States must be prudent in how it exercises its power. But we cannot safely avoid the responsibilities of global leadership or the costs that are associated with its exercise. America has a vital role in maintaining peace and security in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. If we shirk our responsibilities, we invite challenges to our fundamental interests. The history of the 20th century should have taught us that it is important to shape circumstances before crises emerge, and to meet threats before they become dire. The history of this century should have taught us to embrace the cause of American leadership.

Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:

• we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global
responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;

• we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;

• we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;

• we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.

Such a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the successes of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness in the next."

Mr. President, they wanted you and the USA to become police for the entire world and take over as the world's only superpower. They did not care whatsoever about whether it was in God's interest, neither whether democracy was brought about or not. Their only concern has been to take over the entire world's economic policy, and have control of all of its resources to suit its interests.

Mr. President, freedom will never be spread this way. They are full of hate and greed, and a twisted form of Israel policy. You must come clean with the American people!!!! Reject their form of government and tell us the truth and admit what you have done!!!!!!!!!!! Come out President Bush, we're here until the end!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug Eldritch"

BUSH IS A WEAK MINDED EXCUSE OF A MAN. HE IS A "SMALL" PEE-ON MILITARY DODGER. HIS IQ IS SMALLER THAN HIS FEET. HE HAS NO SOUL. HOW CAN THIS WORM GO ON VACATION WHILE YOUNG AMERICANS ARE DYING? WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?!! BARBARA BUSH HAS 17 GRANDCHILDREN AND NONE ARE SERVING IN IRAQ (Do you read that Ohio?!!). WHAT DOES IT TAKE..THUNDER TO STRIKE YOU? !!! THESE PERPETRATORS OF MADNESS HAVE PULLED THE WOOL OVER THE EYES OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS. WAKE UP AMERICA AND TAKE CHARGE. Make calls to Congress NOW and demand that those worthless Republican Senators open investigations into the Downing Street Memo. Tell them their careers are THROUGH if they don't take accountability for the deaths of these wonderful young Americans. HELP CINDY'S CAUSE...end the senseless deaths of our young men and women of America who that asshole Bush sends to their deaths while his worthless ass in on vacation and his kids sit beside him, safe and sound. DO IT NOW!!! Call those Born-Again Schizo Right Wing Christians and tell them you won't support their church until they "Thou shalt not kill". I'm a Christian too, but I don't support this massacre. I have sense enough (thank God) to know when someone is bullshitting me big time. It's about time we all woke up and realized that we have been duped. No more. Remember, everyone, it's our money who the corporations depend on to keep them going. Use your "pull-together" power to screw these assholes like they are doing us.
