Cristi Adkins Asks, Will These Broken Wings Stay Home or Fly to the Other Side?

Can 18 Million Broken Wings Recover - and Fly Away to the Other Side? As Denver approaches, the flapping that's in this air is the buzz everywhere: What will the Clinton supporters do next?
Cristi Adkins

With unyielding conviction through talking, writing, praying and fighting, the voices of 18 million Clinton Supporters struggled to exert an unmistakable solution for America, one they know as Senator Hillary Clinton. Yet, in the aftermath of a democratic debacle they're left behind like fallen angels nursing broken wings. Now wondering where to go, left or right, those 18 million must consider whether they will just stay home -- or recover their hope and strength -- and fly to the other side.

Surrounded by dampened spirits and broken wings, the DNC gives the 18 million nothing, while requesting much. Should those 18 million give up their dream now or will they invest more hope in a "November surprise?" I, Cristi Adkins, have declared my pledge to fly over, but there are many days when that decision is questioned again and again. And, like myself, there must be many other supporters who feel the same.

As thoughtful women - and many men - some of these angels declare it a crime to just stay home rather than invoke our most powerful birthright: the right to vote in a valid democratic process. It's a sacred right too often taken for granted. Exercising it is a powerful force uplifting each individual's spirit and moral fiber.

Amidst all the broken wings, whispers of injustice, sexism, inequality and questions of 'His Will' hover in the Democratic Party's air. The DNC's insincere declarations of remorse over the chosen offer little solace. But what is to come if the voices of those 18 million simply surrender now?

In the DNC's flawed process, the 18 million invested everything they had only to be left feeling scorned and ignored for believing that "now was the time." When will the voices of these 18 million angels begin to matter to the DNC - if ever? Or, is their best option to fly to the side of an American hero, the maverick AKA, John McCain?

With their wounded spirits, the 18 million face an all too familiar struggle. How can they justify staying home when their fore-mothers demonstrated the power of women's will on August 26, 1920?

Almost to the day, in unison, though wounded, jaded, mocked and hated, those brave angels of democracy struggled to end the brutality of women's suffrage...they ended forever in the country the haunting silence of women's voices. Are women to be hushed once again on August 26, 2008?

Despite decades of activism, advocacy, and growing empowerment, are the angels to be left once again in silence -- searching, wondering, lost and alone?

It's as if we, the 18 million, are children without a father and are now hoping for our mother's miracle. If only we knew 'His Will.'

During this year's historical, glass-breaking primary process, the DNC's "good ole boys" showed us harsh political realities. We met misogyny face-to-face on many primary nights, and it came dressed as an inexperienced, unqualified, and arrogant nominee, one selected rather than elected.

Like so many others, I'm also left wondering what to do on November 4.

With broken wings, should we -- the 18 million -- just stay home, or should we carry our dreams to the appealing, but unfamiliar, other side? Let the Denver bells ring and we shall see just what these angels do.

Clintons for McCain Release: Bill Clinton Reveals Obama Not Ready for Prime Time

Bill Clinton Reveals Obama Not Ready for Prime Time
--Former President’s Popularity Magnifies Presumptive Nominee’s Deficiencies, Lack of Qualifications--

Peace, prosperity and a winning personality, just three reasons Americans STILL love Bill Clinton. And now comes word that Barack Obama will allow the former President time to shine by speaking at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, but is this wise?

Clintons4Mccain Founder’s Cristi Adkins and Anne Franklin say the answer is no. “Boasting eight years of one of the most successful presidencies of our era, Clinton’s presence at the convention will only magnify Barack’s deficiencies and signal to Americans how ill-prepared Obama is to be president,” said Adkins.

The contrast between Clinton and Obama is glaringly obvious. “Bill Clinton presided over the longest period of peace-time economic expansion in American history, which included a balanced budget and a federal surplus,” added Adkins. "He's down-to-earth, plays the saxophone and loves to eat McDonald's hamburgers and is in touch with middle America, while Obama is an arugula-eating, admitted cocaine user who accuses people of being racist and clinging to their guns and religion.”

On the other hand, Obama’s commander-in-chief credentials are non-existent and the Illinois senator often comes across as an ultra-elitist, just ask former Hillary supporter Anne Franklin.

“His refusal to visit injured US troops on his grand tour across Europe and the Middle East also demonstrates an extreme lack of character. Furthermore, the mounting evidence and recent developments regarding his religious background and facts surrounding his true identity raise numerous questions. He must be thoroughly vetted. The fact that he has taken such steps to hide his background is cause for concern,” said Anne Franklin.

Adkins added, “Obama has life-long associations with racist pastors, dirty slumlords and terrorist sympathizers.”

For more information on the 2008 presidential campaign and other current affairs ignored by the main stream media, catch the Clintons4McCain weekly radio show. This Saturday, August 16th at 5pm EST, pro-military and pro-American heroines Beverly Perlson and Debra Bartoshevich will join C4M to discuss basic American freedoms and responsibilities.

Perlson, who is from the Chicago area, founded The Band of Mothers (http://TheBandofMothers.com), an organization of soldiers' moms committed "to Step Up, Stand Up and Stick Up For Our Soldiers." As a member of the 82d Airborne Division, Perlson's Bronze-Star-winning son, Sergeant John White, served four tours of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bartoshevich is from Wisconsin and was elected a Hillary Clinton delegate to the Democratic National Convention. When she announced she would vote for John McCain in the General Election, the state party quickly stripped her of her rights to attend the convention as a Clinton supporter.

Move On Davide Duke, Obama is the New Racist in Town Competing for the White House Now!

Imagine an America that is bowing to tolerance and becoming enlightened through a higher level of consciousness. Visualize a country where younger generations will arise with no hatred, no bias and live free of closed minded prejudices. Just when you envision this dream of harmony and acceptance on the brink of society, a society ripe for unity ...you are given a golden opportunity to participate in a revolution. The One arrives on the scene like a liberator to the molested.

Yet, the day of reckoning arrived without a whisper of race…in the beginning. Slowly, with pawns in place, little by little the overtures of bigotry, intolerance and discrimination sluggishly swayed the innocent to ‘make the guilty pay.’

It-the hatred and ethnocentrism- sneaks in like a snake on a hot summer day silently awaiting its prey; it slithers in silence waiting to strike the unsuspecting prey. The venom has a paralyzing effect just before the deadly poison can exterminate the mark.

Only this snake is slinking its way through the senate seducing super delegates. The young and easily influenced, or those so desperate for a day of reckoning, are spellbound by the master.

Defined best by Betty Jean Kling, The One is the Racist!

Race was not an an issue for me when Obama came on the scene. I
remember when he came sauntering out on the stage at the Democratic
convention. Yes, he sauntered across the stage even then and I thought it
was fine - then. I loved his speech and I remember thinking this man
is going to be our president some day. I don’t remember thinking
about his color at all! I didn’t think in those terms - then.

Since January race has become an issue and it was made an issue by those who are
allowed to make it an issue. Blacks! Whites are not allowed to make it an issue!
Anyone white knows that! If You are black you can say the ‘N’ word at will
- if you are white - you had better not even refer to it as the “N” word let
alone spell it out.

The media has run the issue of race into the
ground and is determined to ask racists questions which they are allowed to do
because every time a white answers - the blacks can attack the whites for
answering! So the media is a willing pawn for the blacks. Read more http://freemenow.wordpress.com/the-one-is-a-racist/
Even more disturbing is that with media in tow, we pretend that we are a society of acceptance. Some whisper, some talk, most look the other way when true racism raises it's ugly head. When it is so blatant and cannot be denied, what do we do with the 'racist' in todays society? We let freedom ring and let the whole world know that we are NOT going to tolerate those who are intolerable. Emblematic of true justice and tolerance of all, the great state of Louisiana denied governroship to David Duke back in the 80's.

Alas, a challenge like no other. What to do when the racist is the victim, the victim the racist? Whats more, what to do when we've given the racist his stage without a fight?

It all started on January 3, 2008

While Barack and Michelle entered the Iowa hall, waving and thanking supporters, Jay-Z’s “99 Problems (But A Bitch Ain’t One)” was pumping out of the loudspeakers. While most of Middle America did not recognize that hip hop song, the racist pig and his angry racist wife were clapping and dancing across the stage sending a very loud and clear message to a subculture that the rest of us could not understand.

Have you read the lyrics of this filthy song? Read the lyrics then you will know why in addition to young people from colleges who are young and foolish, uneducated poor people who identify by color only, the easily influenced or easily mesmerized, the
downtrodden, and last but not least the dregs of the earth came out of the
woodwork and registered to vote for the first time in history without knowing
what voting is for!
*Listen to the lyrics folks. Betty Jean Kling

So, what's left to say except 'Move on David Duke, there's a new racist in town named Barack Obama making a play for the White House.'
