Just Say NO Mr Farr

Mr Farr,
I visited your website after reading an article on the front page of the Herald - I see you strong support of the troops and that's pretty much it.
What of those patriots who do not support this war? Or don't they count? They are your constituents too.
Signed,
Lesley-Reid Harrison
 

You need spelling lessons too

Not only do you need civics lessons, but apparently you need spelling lessons as well. It's spelled "constituent".
 

Farr, Stop The War, Take a Stand like Kucinich

I CALL UPON SAM FARR TO TAKE SUBSTANTIAL ACTION TO END THE WAR ON IRAQ!

I live in Santa Cruz and I vote!

Stop The War
By Dennis J. Kucinich

US House of Representatives, 4/2/03

Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH), who leads opposition to the War in Iraq within the House, today, issued the following statement on the House floor:

“Stop the war now. As Baghdad will be encircled, this is the time to get the UN back in to inspect Baghdad and the rest of Iraq for biological and chemical weapons. Our troops should not have to be the ones who will find out, in combat, whether Iraq has such weapons. Why put our troops at greater risk? We could get the United Nations inspectors back in.

“Stop the war now. Before we send our troops into house-to-house combat in Baghdad, a city of five million people. Before we ask our troops to take up the burden of shooting innocent civilians in the fog of war.

“Stop the war now. This war has been advanced on lie upon lie. Iraq was not responsible for 9/11. Iraq was not responsible for any role al-Qaeda may have had in 9/11. Iraq was not responsible for the anthrax attacks on this country. Iraq did not tried to acquire nuclear weapons technology from Niger. This war is built on falsehood.

“Stop the war now. We are not defending America in Iraq. Iraq did not attack this nation. Iraq has no ability to attack this nation. Each innocent civilian casualty represents a threat to America for years to come and will end up making our nation less safe. The seventy-five billion dollar supplemental needs to be challenged because each dime we spend on this war makes America less safe. Only international cooperation will help us meet the challenge of terrorism. After 9/11 all Americans remember we had the support and the sympathy of the world. Every nation was ready to be of assistance to the United States in meeting the challenge of terrorism. And yet, with this war, we have squandered the sympathy of the world. We have brought upon this nation the anger of the world. We need the cooperation of the world, to find the terrorists before they come to our shores.

“Stop this war now. Seventy-five billion dollars more for war. Three-quarters of a trillion dollars for tax cuts, but no money for veterans’ benefits. Money for war. No money for health care in America, but money for war. No money for social security, but money for war. We have money to blow up bridges over the Tigris and the Euphrates, but no money to build bridges in our own cities. We have money to ruin the health of the Iraqi children, but no money to repair the health of our own children and our educational programs.

“Stop this war now. It is wrong. It is illegal. It is unjust and it will come to no good for this country.

“Stop this war now. Show our wisdom and our humanity, to be able to stop it, to bring back the United Nations into the process. Rescue this moment. Rescue this nation from a war that is wrong, that is unjust, that is immoral.

“Stop this war now"

Kucinich: President Continues to Mislead The Country About the War

On March 31, 2003, Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH), who leads opposition in the House to the war in Iraq, issued the following statement:

“Today, President Bush said the following to Coast Guard personnel: Our victory will remove a sponsor of terror, armed with weapons of terror. Our victory will uphold the just demands of the United Nations and the civilized world.

“This statement is another example of rhetoric that the Administration is using to mislead the public in the war against Iraq. Iraq has not been proven to have weapons of mass destruction, by either the United Nations or the United States. Further, this statement falsely implies that the United Nations and ‘the civilized world’ sanctioned war in Iraq. It also incorrectly implies that the United Nations sanctioned regime change and the removal of Saddam Hussein.

“This Administration has consistently misled the public on the cost of war, the cause for war, the facts of war, and the support for war. It is time to end this war immediately and bring the troops home.”

Finish the War & Have a Party for Troops!

Mr. Farr,

Our courageous fighters from the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coalition partners are doing a fantastic job of removing a despotic dictator's foot from the windpipe of freedom loving Iraqis! The troops are doing this with great care to minimize deaths and injury to civilians and their urban infrastructure - it's really quite an amazing thing that they have been able to do this so well!

Clearly spending on smart bombs and related technologies is SAVING LIVES in Iraq! Please fully fund the requests from President Bush to replenish and further improve our stockpiles of these wonderful life-saving weapons.

I our soldiers worry a great deal about fratricide and collateral damage. I also know they have much more confidence in their abilities to avoid these pitfalls of war with their new equipment. Please don't place them back in the position they were in the old days where such mistakes were commonplace.

Dave
 

No $$$ for war against Iraq

Please vote against all monies for war against Iraq. We need money spent on domestic programs in education, job development, and help for low income people, not for a war for oil in Iraq. Our government is embarrassingly corporate-sponsored and corrupted. Please work to change this. Vivienne
