      How can we get more people like Dennis Kucinich to speak on the people’s behalf. Why is it that the number of politicians occupying congress can’t understand what we would like them to accomplish. How can we get rid of the one’s who don’t listen to the want’s and need’s of the people. Rep. Kucinich knows, and a few other bold congressmen,but the majority seem to be just plain bought and sold,and paying homage to the lobbyists and not the people.
      Maybe if we all stopped paying taxes like the corporations,maybe they would start listening,and once again we might have a little control over our government.

      The dea be better off trying to find missing persons than a weed. People are turning up dead when found. Too much attention on one and not enough on the missing. Will this be discussed at the meeting?

    14. Yea he is real. Here in ohio he has been a good leader. Its the media driven by hidden agends that try to make him out to be misguided but people that he has helped kept him in office. But finally the corporate have figured out how to eliminate him. America give him your support. He is real.

      Dennis Kucinich is THE MAN

    16. Ralph Carson says:

      Why is dennis reading from his e-device if he is speaking from his heart? Rodger Goodman didn’t!

      thanks Russ

      Freedom is not being afraid to use Marijuana .In this Country you are arrested for it . You’ll be jailed by a Government who will not give you your freedom . In America you’ll be jailed for selling lemonade .

    19. Little Gypsy says:

      He sounds like a politician. Long winded. Edit out the eight minutes that did not relate to marijuana.

    20. Brandon says:

      Any early analysis of how big the crowd was?

    21. Graeme says:

      Anybody know where I can find a transcript of Kucinich’s speach?

    22. The Road Runner - Meep! Meep! says:

      Government is bankrupt of morals and ethics – and – it is hardly in a position to defy the will of the people. We “must” make it sit up and pay attention – and – quit its odoriferous actions. Would it seem possible that it is intentionally picking a fight with the American people – or – could it just be its elitist arrogance. Is it raising its ugly head and showing its ugly face with an agenda.

      This schmuck is wondering

      why is cannabis illegal

    26. Shmuck says:

      While I await for the moderator to decide, and figure it out, might I consume a little bitty bandwidh to say


    27. Shmuck says:

      If Pray for your only soul

      When you come in front of The Highest Court

      Offer some Cannabis

    28. GS says:

      Just hope that the government doesn’t give him (Kucinich) the Marc Emery treatment…. (Make too much noise and they will find a way to suppress you)

    29. mike says:

      why did Denise vote for OBAMA CARE HIS VOTE VOTE WAS CRITICAL and he left it pass DONT BELIEVE any politician they all lie only looking for votes and do whatever they want or there BUDDIES need a hand making MONEY

    30. The American Genesist says:

      Dennis Kucinich is more than obviously a progressive. They want cannabis to be legal – BUT – they also want our freedom to be illegal. That’s a lousy trade off. Washington is all about “trade offs.” Our problem is – “We don’t have anything to trade.”

    31. Free America says:

      A great speech. Paul / Kucinich 2012!

    32. Joey says:

      @#9, Owen, I agree entirely.

      @#17, Ralph, I was thinking the exact same thing. He went to Grad school for Communication and Speech and he is a horrible public speaker who stumbled over parts of his own speech while spending more time looking at his device than the people. The demand he should be making is for a refund on his education. This was horrible. If these are things he is truly passionate about, he should be so well practiced in speaking the truth that he shouldn’t even need notes for this speech.
