in case you missed it, moveon and jim wallis and sojourners and seui have organized a fast to protest the republican budget proposals.
these proposals give huge tax cuts to millionaires and corporations, and they cut funding to veterans, the elderly, children, and women's health programs. the republicans are advocating a 'redistribution of wealth', actually, from the poor to the rich. they're like anti-robin hoods. i find the republican budget proposal to be egregiously immoral, which is why i'm doing what i can to support moveon and the fast. and no, i don't think that the ceo's of big defense corporations are quaking in their boots at the thought of 50,000 americans fasting in protest, but sometimes you have to just have to do what's right. and i believe that protesting the republican budget proposals is imperative.
