No Longer on Campaign. Formal announcement

For personal and health reasons, I regret that I have to pull out of active participation in the Barr/Sheehan 2012 campaign. I strongly believe in the Platform as written, and the mission statement of the Peace and Freedom Party, and hope to continue my activism when my health improves. As to the personal reasons, Candidate Barr and I have irreconcilable differences on how best to serve the Peace and Freedom Party. I believe between my health issues and the disparity of our Political approach; both the Campaign, Ms Barr and the Party would be better served by my resignation. I wish nothing but good things for the Party and campaign.

UPDATE I: APPARENTLY, IT IS TOO LATE ACCORDING TO STATE POLICIES FOR ME TO RESIGN FROM THE TICKET,  BUT I AM WITHDRAWING ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN CAMPAIGNING. SO, I WILL STILL BE THE VP CHOICE ON BALLOTS (CINDY)

  1. Too bad but not every political alliance can bear fruit. No worries, there's a lot of struggle left for when you get better :) Take care of your health Cindy!!

  2. Isn't Cynthia McKinney a Green not a member of the Peace and Freedom Party?

  5. Completely support and (I think) understand your decision.

    The P&FP and similar formations challenging the corporate/imperial status quo deserve serious candidates, people like you. Celebrities like Roseanne Barr, despite their rebel image, are political dilettantes, lightweights much too insulated from reality and acquired privilege to stay the course and walk the walk. While they can momentarily attract publicity, in the end, due to their superficiality and wackiness, not to mention the insidiousness of the corporate media, they end up damaging the image and prospects of the left.

    The time may come (hopefully soon) when some party will arise in America to really challenge the cynical duopoly currently co-opting real political choice in the United States. Till then, please remain active and take good care of your health. A lot of people depend on the truth and example you are able to set.

    And we love you.

  6. This is very discouraging news, but given the hints and clues of the past few weeks, on top of Barr's almost bizarre comments and behavior, I am not surprised. Oh well.

  7. Peace and Freedom; words I associate with you. It was never just a "party" name or how it looks on a ballot. Celebrity is not where it comes from. You live it. That is the difference. Cindy, I hope you feel better soon. Rest is important. Give yourself some time to heal. Do whatever you must to rejuvenate your spirit. Take a break and come back with a refreshed outlook and determined to deliver Peach and Freedom. Your friend, Peggy in Davis.

  8. I have an idea, It is not a new idea, yet I keep it. I share it. I prop it up so it will not fall. I repair it when it stops working. I use it. I lend it. I feed it. I remember it. I shelter it. I expose it. I refer to it. I wrestle with it. I embrace it. I am not alone in owning this idea. it has many owners. it's roots are strong.

    2. Such a shame...watching Roseanne liking Hilary Clinton ONLY because she is female...hard to behold. I was hoping you could change stances such as that. Much luck with your health Cindy, and thank you for continuing the struggle. When the "Liberals" left you, many of us left THEM. The Democratic Conventions was a terrible farce, and they do not want you in the rear view mirror, because that is where their conscience resides. We love you Cindy.
