Silent No Longer by Dan Leahy

Check out this vimeo video of Dan Leahy reciting his poem "Silent No Longer."

He wrote the poem after becoming fed up with the American Left's silence regarding Obama.  This is a poem that asks for us to speak out, and push for and support a vibrant working class movement that doesn't allow the Obama brand to keep us silent any longer.

The arguments defending him are done.  He is no longer "doing the best he can."  No one buys the idea that he is compromising now in order to be able to start changing and hoping down the road. This is the Obama we voted for, the one we have right now.  Bombing Libya, stripping Bradley Manning, funding nuclear development, raiding pot dispensaries.  This is what he's done all along, and its what he will continue to do. 

Watch the video.  Share it.  Think about it.  Write back.  Criticize it.  Lets work on this.
