WILLIE NELSON ENDORSES KUCINICH FOR PRESIDENT

One of the most beloved figures in popular music and culture has endorsed the populist presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.
STATEMENT FROM WILLIE NELSON
"I am endorsing Dennis Kucinich for President because he stands up for heartland Americans who are too often overlooked and unheard. He has done that his whole political career. Big corporations are well-represented in Washington, but Dennis Kucinich is a rare Congressman of conscience and bravery who fights for the unrepresented, much like the late Senator Paul Wellstone. Dennis champions individual privacy, safe food laws and family farmers. A Kucinich Administration will put the interests of America's family farmers, consumers and environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness.

"I normally do not get too heavily involved in politics, but this is more about getting involved with America than with politics. I encourage people to learn more about Dennis Kucinich at www.kucinich.us and I will be doing all I can to raise his profile with voters. I plan to do concerts to benefit the campaign."

(This is an individual endorsement and does not reflect the views of any organization.)

"It's an honor," commented Rep. Kucinich, "to earn the support of a man who has come to symbolize the best values of America."

"ON THE ROAD AGAIN": With Willie Nelson's endorsement, momentum continues to build for our insurgent campaign -- as we increase our support base, our volunteer base, our endorsements and fundraising.

RALPH NADER, on last night's CNN Crossfire, said: "If Dennis Kucinich gets the nomination, it'll be less reason to have a third-party challenge. He's a very progressive Democrat..."

Dare to dream. We can win this nomination. With so many candidates in the race, everyone is a long shot, not just us. To see why KUCINICH WILL DEFEAT BUSH, check out kucinich.us/electable.htm

It is so inspiring to see people comming out for Dennis Kucinich. Kudos to Willie Nelson and Ralph Nadar. Don't imagine america with 4 more years of the current sicko administration. Let's take Dennis to the streets while there is still time to turn back the madness that is now being created. We can turn the tide. Only a sober person would take a stand for truth and ritousness.
