Feingold 2008 sign now


The purpose of this petition is to urge Senator Russ Feingold to announce his candidacy for the Presidency in the 2008 election.

Senator Feingold has been a consistent critic of the war in Iraq. He voted against the resolution authorizing the President to use force in Iraq and was the first senator to urge a withdrawal timetable for the troops. Since he was first elected to the Senate in 1992, Russ Feingold has built a record as a staunch advocate for working families by fighting for measures to lower health care costs, stop the flow of jobs overseas, and preserve and strengthen our public education system. He has made combating terrorism a top priority and has worked to give more resources to first responders on the front lines at home.

Most recently Feingold introduced a resolution to censure President Bush for his "actions in authorizing the illegal wiretapping program and then misleading the country about the existence and legality of the program." He says the resolution is "an appropriate and responsible step for Congress to take in response to the presidents undermining of the separation of powers and ignoring the rule of law." Unfortunately Feingold received no immediate support from any Democrat in Congress. A nation of laws? The President violated the law but Russ Feingold is apparently the only one in our Congress who believes that the President is not above the law, and that the Congress is the Constitionally-appointed body for determining the law.

Russ Feingold is used to being alone. He was the one dissenting vote in the 99 to 1 vote in the Senate against the Patriot Act in 2001 and the lone Democrat to vote against dismissing impeachment charges against President Clinton in 1999. Feingold is also known for leading the fight for campaign finance reform in the Senate with Republican Senator John McCain. Feingold has been a tireless leader in bipartisan efforts to restore fiscal discipline in Congress and reduce the federal deficit.

"[Feingold] showed that a politician need not shelve his conscience to achieve success."
- "A Principled Win," The Washington Post, November 5, 1998

In this critical time of our nation's history we desperately need a President who understands what it means to be an American.

We, the undersigned, gladly sign this petititon to urge Senator Russ Feingold to run for President in 2008 because we need him, with his courage, his independence and his respect for our laws and our Constitution, as our President.
