Yeah! Forget about Paris 'vote or die' Hilton (she didn't bother to register), this is the type of resistence this country desperately needs.

Quote:
BOULDER, Colo. - About 85 high school students upset about the nation's direction were camping out in the school library, demanding an audience with Republican leaders.

"We want them to reassure us that our fears are misguided and that the government is doing everything in its power to prevent our futures from being destroyed," said senior Brian Martens, who wore a hand-lettered T-shirt which said he was the "senior executive of the subcommittee on protesting stuff."

That's where I live! The lone bastion of liberalism in Colorado.

And let me just say that I am so damn proud of Mark Udall, who is Boulder's congressman, he took hi time out of his day to go and talk to them, and to LISTEN to them! I love Udall. I want him to run for governor and get Owens out!!!
