Especially high integrity, idealistic, influential people who cannot be seduced, bribed or bullied are often lost to us. Paul Wellstone voted against the Iraq war and against the Homeland Security Act. His campaign slogan was, “I’m for the little fellers, not the Rockefellers.”
If you vote against the war in Iraq, the Bush administration will do whatever is necessary to get you. There will be severe ramifications for you and the state of Minnesota.
