  1. I don't live in CA - but went to his website and made a contribution to his campaign - he seems like just what we need in Congress!

  5. I contributed, too. He's a friend of former colleague of mine.

    I suggest everyone contribute, especially those making lame threats to create a new political party. Here's a rare chance to support someone who wants to move our issues along.

  7. Nick, that's exactly what I was going to say.

    Also, if you're tired of handing over money to organizations that serve only to enrich themselves and do little for us, supporting candidate Woods is a refreshing alternative.

  9. Seeing someone as intelligent and capable as this gentleman is shows how ludicrous DADT is. Count me in for Anthony Woods and thanks for posting this.

  10. I guess I'm gonna have to register to vote at my parents house in Walnut Creek so I can vote for him.

    On another note, how many times can he say "military" in one interview.
