Here’s an excellent article from author Anodea Judith (Wheels of Life and Eastern Body, Western Mind ) on why it is so vital to vote for Dennis Kucinich next Tuesday. Forward it freely!

By Anodea Judith

The present moment is a cauldron of staggering potential and awesome
responsibility. Never before have American citizens had such ability to
influence the political climate, nor has there ever been such absolute
necessity for us to do so.

We are, quite simply, facing the ultimatum of traditional rites of passage:
transform or die. Which do we choose?

Collectively, we are undergoing a profound transformation, a change from an
adolescent “use-it-all-now? attitude to one of sustainable maturity that can
parent a global future. In this transformation, we are like the
caterpillar, entering the chrysalis to become a butterfly.

Prior to this transformation, a caterpillar eats voraciously, consuming all
it can. Then it outgrows its skin, repeatedly, getting more and more
bloated, slows down, and loses all freedom as it enters the confines of the
chrysalis. The military-industrial-corporate-media complex, designed for
consumption, the bloated Pentagon budget, and the Homeland Security Act that
is curbing our freedom draw obvious parallels. The majority of cells in this
country are still in the caterpillar stage, unknowing of what they might

Yet, inside the chrysalis, a miraculous thing occurs. Tiny cells begin to
appear, called “imaginal cells,? wholly different from the caterpillar
cells, vibrating at a different frequency -- so different, in fact, that the
caterpillar’s immune system vigorously attacks them. The media is the
immune system of the old network, keeping the old memes alive, even as they
lead us into stagnation and possible death. They continue to attack anyone
that has a new way, such as Dennis Kucinich. Still, these new cells continue
to appear, carrying the blueprint of the future organism.

As these cells become more numerous, they find each other, clump together,
and form new networks and clusters that organize and differentiate into
varied tasks. At a certain point in this proliferation, the new cells
recognize each other as a wholly different organism and become so strong and
numerous that the organism changes identity and reroutes its immune system.
The caterpillar body then becomes the nutrient for the emerging butterfly.

Dennis Kucinich is an imaginal cell, dancing to the beat of a different
drummer, a shaper of the future, not the past. He alone has demonstrated
the wisdom of redirecting the Defense Department’s overactive immune system
into a Department of Peace. He alone courageously addresses the
overconsumption of corporatism and speaks of redirecting those resources
into a system that works for the many, not the few. He alone sees the role
of global leadership that America can play in the quest for world peace and
justice. Dennis Kucinich is the one candidate who possesses the spiritual
maturity to lead our larva-like culture into its glorious emergence.

But he can’t do it alone. We are the cells within this collective body. We
can decide where to place our alignment -- with the dying caterpillar,
choking on its own consumption, or the imaginal cells of the future. We can
organize behind a vision for the future and we can support the mouthpiece of
this organism who dares to speak for our dreams. We can get out the vote,
and vote for Dennis Kucinich as a statement of who we are and who we are
inevitably becoming.

As imaginal cells, we can use our power of imagination along with our
donations and our sweat equity. We can visualize-- as a daily meditation --
a surge of support so profound the media cannot ignore it. We can use our
own minds and mouths and keyboards to spread the word. We can align
ourselves with progressive values of peace, sustainability, equality, and
restoration. We not only can but we must if we are to survive the
