An Open Letter to John Edwards. I sent the following message by feedback form to the Edwards campaign tonite.

"IT'S PERSONAL DEBT, USURY, AND BANKRUPTCY, STUPID"

I am very concerned that the Democratic Party is losing its mind to delusional thinking again, and that neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama is electable, unless the Republicans go equally crazy and nominate a Mormon, who is equally unelectable. Would a third-party candidate, New York City's Jewish mayor, give us a third unacceptable choice? What happens if both major parties, or three presidential parties, give the people candidates they detest? Do voters stay home in droves? Do they get out their guns?
+
You are probably the only Democrat remaining in the race who has a real chance of not only winning the White House but also bringing in a wave of Democratic Representatives and Senators to empower the President actually to enact a legislative program. You can carry the South, unless you select Obama or Hillary as Veep. If you select Bill Richardson as Veep, you can carry the Hispanic vote, bigtime.
+
But you won't get that chance unless you speak to what is the most important issue for the electorate this time, as it was the last time. In 2004, Democrats refused to speak to personal debt, the fact that the typical American family is in hock up to their eyeballs, and being crushed under usurious interest rates they cannot escape because the Republicans passed bankruptcy "reform" that preserved bankruptcy basically only for corporations, so they could escape labor contracts and pension and healthcare obligations, while making it almost completely unavailable to ordinary people.
+
During your run for the White House with John Kerry, I checked the campaign's website and did an electronic search for the words "debt", "usury", and "bankruptcy". No such words appeared on the home page or links to subpages on that site. Again in 2006, I searched for those words in the website for the DNC, and again did not find them. I wrote to the DNC, Senator Kennedy, and some other leaders to say that if they did not address personal debt, usury, and bankruptcy, they risked losing to the Republicans again, or at least losing the ability to set the agenda for the next Congress. They did not answer, they did not address those concerns, and they 'won' a margin of control over Congress so flimsy that they were absolutely unable to do a damned thing for the American people. They didn't even attempt to undo the bankruptcy "reform" passed by the Republicans, that has trapped 40 million Americans in crushing debt at usurious interest rates. Please don't make the same mistake again.
+
I used the search function within your website and searched for "debt", "usury", and "bankruptcy". Some things about "debt" and "bankruptcy" did appear, but (a) many were duplicates, (b) the mentions of "debt" and "bankruptcy" were not prominent and the first reported results related only to reforming bankruptcy laws as regards the value of mortgages, not the general unavailability of real bankruptcy to ordinary people, and (c) these words and the appallingly harsh realities behind them do not constitute either the central nor even a major theme of your campaign.
+
Searches for "usury" and "usurious" on your website did not produce a single result. Not ONE. Are you just unaware that the reason people can't get out of debt is that the interest rates charged are outlandish? You propose permitting higher interest rates only on future purchases, but do not propose a national usury law. Why not?
+
I know you are rich now, but you are not supposed to be blind to the harsh economic realities of the "little people" who are drowning in debt.
+
I checked the websites of the Obama and Clinton campaigns.
+
In both the Obama and Clinton websites, the words "debt", "usury" and "bankruptcy" do not appear on the home page, nor is there a search box by means of which to find those issues. The "Issues" dropdown menu does not show any of those words either.
+
Are these people from another planet? Have they been so rich for so long that they have no idea that this Nation is drowning in debt? Even Bush understands that people are so heavily in debt that they cannot spend the economy out of recession. But none of the Democrats understands that? What is wrong with you people?
+
"It's personal debt, usury, and bankruptcy, stupid."
