What Do We Need To Do To Make The NYC Ballot Initiative Successful?
If you're not aware, Dr. William Pepper has started an initiative to get a call for a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks on the ballots of New York.
I know there are problems as it stands right now (the writing of the petition, some of the people on the committee, etc...), and there are many obstacles to making it successful. I wanted to at least discuss it, and not let the idea fall into limbo. Several people I respect IMMENSELY (including Bob McIlvaine, and Lorie Van Auken) would like this to succeed, and I want to try and make that happen.
People in Vermont did manage to get it on the ballot, but unfortunately, they lost. I think it's possible that the outcome would be something VERY different in New York. The petition delivered to Spitzer's office was a failure. One of the main reasons for that was because one person got to decide whether or not they would give the petition the time of day. If a call for a new investigation made it onto the ballot's of New York, then the people would be given the opportunity to decide.
Thoughts? Ideas? Please don't say, "there's nothing we can do, it's hopeless." Thanks.
