There will always be suffering in the world, so the conventional wisdom goes. And lately, it's easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of destructive human folly all around us, permeating the planet. What can one person do to stop the Bush juggernaut? It's too much! To preserve sanity, we almost have to give up, turn our face from the horror, go to a movie, eat some ice cream.
But when the horror has a source closer to home, can we really turn away? When an "evildoer" walks among us, speaks directly in our name, is our individual voice in congress, we have no right. We have no right to be stupid when our stupidity enables the suffering of our fellow human beings.
Getting rid of John Doolittle is a moral call to action. John Doolittle's work in congress has allowed misery and cruelty to flourish in our name. He has to go.
