When is it time for leaders of 'the revolution' to step down, step to the side and let the next generation of leaders fulfill their destiny. When is the right time to say thanks but its time for you to go so that your successes can be built upon, expanded, and evolve as opposed to destroyed if you continue to hold on to power. This issue is at the core of the political unrest in Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe and in the fears of a post Fidel Castro Cuba

What little attention the memo has gotten is dismissive and mis-characterizes the contents. I strongly suggest everyone forward the word around and contact their congressional reps, and senators (no Republicans will attend, nor will many Democrats) and local media outlets and blogs to publicize the Thursday June 16 hearing.
We are on the verge of history-making changes in this nation. Whether those changes will be for good or evil will rest largely on what you, as a private citizen, are willing to do in the coming weeks. YOU have to pick up the phones. YOU have to knock on doors. YOU have to xerox flyers for people who don't get their news from the net. YOU have to talk to everyone around you not only to educate them but to let those who also aware what is going on know that they are not alone. Create your own activist groups. Build your own web sites. Put banners in your windows and on your lawns. Put stickers on your cars. Be VISIBLE. Make noise. Force yourself to be seen and heard. Make the world know what you think of a government that lies to the people.
