My name is Paul Buffalo La Bonte, that is with an E at the end of the name which despite a great article by Nick Veronin, was misprinted or misspelled. The Tax day Protests by were welcomed by me and I will be very active from that day forward in protests. Either organizing mine own protests or participating with any number of progressive organizations. While I voted for Mr. Obama I now feel it is particularly important that he be replaced by primary ballot with a candidate less likely to lie and forget nearly all of the promises made while on the campaign trail. Like many I had Hope when Obama took office. Now, I can only find the audacity to hope that there could be any so called leaders that truly have the peoples will at the forefront of their issue agendas.

Perhaps I shall run, like Nick said I am charismatic and enthusiastic.
