Not that they'll listen, but...

My e-mail to Senators Levin and Stabenow, based on last week's vote authorizing 20,000 more troops for the Army:
Dear Senator XXX:
I was disappointed to read that you had voted in favor of adding 20,000 more troops to the Army. George W. Bush has already shown that he does not respect American soldiers. He has also shown a callous willingness to use them in wars of choice. What we need is not more soldiers, but fewer wars. By supplying Bush with more troops, you are enabling him to maintain the illegal occupation of Iraq, and possibly to consider other illegal wars.

From last week's article on the vote:
Voting against the Reed amendment were Republicans Gordon Smith of Oregon, Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Larry Craig of Idaho and Craig Thomas of Wyoming. Not voting were Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Republicans Robert Bennett of Utah and James Inhofe of Oklahoma.
Not usually the crowd I would agree with. These clowns voted against it because they were actually stupid enough to believe that Bush doesn't really want more troops (here's a clue for the man-on-dog Repugs--Bush wants more troops, he just doesn't want to have to ask for them).

So every American citizen (well, every citizen of one of the fifty states, anyway) has at least one slimeball senator who decided to buy the drunk another drink. Please contact your own slimeballs and let them know that you don't approve.
