Let them vote on it?

By On

Zetta Bracher, President of the local Democratic Women’s Club, has an idea for getting consensus on our “new direction” in Iraq.

When it became apparent that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, our ostensible purpose there became the importation of democracy. Never mind that these are the folks that invented civilization and government, we Yankees always have a thing or two to teach ‘em!

Well, Zetta reasons, if democracy is such a great thing, why don’t we ask them to vote on whether we should stay or, go home. Or maybe we really don’t want democracy??? Hmmm.

Read Zetta’s Resolution to the Whatcom County Democratic Central Committee.

Read Zetta’s letter to Senator Murray

Thanks, Zetta!
