I AM VOTING FOR OBAMA. AND EVERY DEMOCRAT AND NO REPUBLICAN. {Okay, maybe some Green Party candidates for some offices!} I AM VOTING IN THIS ELECTION AND YOU SHOULD ALSO. VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO IS NOT A REPUGLICAN.

I think it will be MUCH HARDER to STEAL this election, especially if there is a LANDSLIDE AGAINST REPUBLICANS. I don't think the Democrats will lie down and take it, the election being stolen, I mean, like before. I think we are all watching much more carefully; and the protests will be IMMEDIATE.

I DON'T BELIEVE THE POLLS that say that McCain/Palin are "ahead" or "neck-and-neck". The "polls" are anything but "objective" -- they "poll" about 800 to 1000 people and say that is a "fair sample". In actuality, they have used DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION -- the SAME kind of info that they use when deciding who gets what junk mail ads sent to them -- to call up 400 or 500 people they KNOW IN ADVANCE will be McCain/Palin supporters. For this purpose, they use lists of people who voted in the LAST elections. They take NO ACCOUNT AT ALL of the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW VOTERS IN THE OBAMA CAMP.
I heard on the news today -- in a rare breakthru of the TRUTH -- that in King County alone, ONE county in the State of Washington, there are 10,000 new voters enrolled -- TEN THOUSAND -- each MONTH. And I KNOW the Obama people are active in EVERY COUNTY IN WASHINGTON STATE. Maybe in YOUR State, too? Most likely. TEN THOUSAND NEW VOTERS, IN ONE COUNTY, EVERY MONTH. Since the campaign began!
If you are discouraged from voting, thinking "They're all alike" and "The votes will be stolen anyway", that's JUST EXACTLY WHAT THE REPUBLICANS WANT YOU TO THINK. That sort of rationalization of not voting WILL HELP PUT PALIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
There should be an overwhelming landlslide for Obama; voting for third parties I don't think should hurt the Democrats or make third parties "spoilers". Just, for Heaven's sake, VOTE AGAINST PALIN AND McCAIN -- as if your LIFE depended upon it -- which it literally does. YOUR life, the lives of the children, and animals, of the world; and the Planet's life.
If I were not 72 years old, I would be out every day doing Voter Registration work, with those great Obama kids!
Also, CHECK YOUR VOTER REGISTRATION AND KEEP IT UP TO DATE. The Repugs intend to try their best to CHALLENGE AND DIS-QUALIFY EVERY VOTER THEY CAN. 

The Repugs may figure they're going to lose this one anyway. But, they don't want to be WIPED OFF THE MAP ENTIRELY. That would be the BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME; for Repugs to become a NOTHING party; a small fringe group of hard-line religious fundamentalists and die-hard extremists. There is NOTHING that says that Repugs are "IMMORTAL". The Repugs could BECOME AS OBSOLETE AS THE WHIGS, in mainstream politics -- if the voters really caught on to them! YOU SHOULD NEVER VOTE FOR ANY REPUG AGAIN THE ENTIRE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

That way, the Democrats could become the right-wing or Centrist party; and the Greens, the left-wing party! And politics could start MAKING SENSE AGAIN!!!

Please remember to CHECK YOUR VOTER REGISTRATION; to tell everybody else to keep their voter registration up-to-date; YOU NEVER LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE EVEN FOR AN INSTANT {unless you are a convicted of a felony, in most States, unfortunately}. YOU CAN MOVE FROM STATE TO STATE, AND LOSE YOUR HOME, AND EVEN BE HOMELESS; YOU STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE AND HAVE YOUR VOTE COUNTED. Check the laws in your State. Demand answers or look them up or contact the ACLU if there's a problem finding the information.

REMEMBER, AND TELL EVERYONE THIS: YOU NEVER LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE, ONCE YOU'RE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN {or are of voting age}. YOU NEVER, EVER LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE {unless a convicted felon}. Moving or changing your address or going to college does NOT, repeat NOT, lose you your right to vote -- DON'T BE INTIMIDATED BY SOME REPUG WHO WILL TRY TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE OTHERWISE.

I am a VOTING JUDGE in my State's elections. In this State, if there is a question about address, etc., the voter gets a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. THIS IS THE LAW. YOU NEVER, EVER LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE. Get AROUND the Repugs' Dirty Tricks. DON'T LET THEM TELL YOU OTHERWISE.

The Voters Peace Pledge is an effort to count, organize and make visible the emerging anti-war voting block and to speak with a united voice of conviction which candidates and incumbent politicians CANNOT AFFORD TO IGNORE. Imagine headlines saying 2 million have pledged to vote for peace candidates in 2006! A March, 2006 poll showed that tens of millions of Americans agree with the Peace Pledge. Voters For Peace is committed to get the word out to legislators, the media and the general public that peace voters will not be taken for granted in future elections. Voters For Peace urges you to take a clear stand and let politicians know they cannot take your vote for granted but instead have to earn your vote. Please sign the following pledge.

"I will not vote for or support any candidate for Congress or President who doesnot make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war of aggression a public position in his or her campaign."


Visit  http://www.votersforpeace.us/signUp.jsp?key=1134  to sign the peace pledge and help build a peace movement that candidates cannot ignore!

With public opinion shifting from support for the war to calls for immediate withdrawal, the news media has an obligation to reflect on the role it has played in building a pro-war consensus with false and deceptive reporting. Many media organizations have published “mea-culpas” admitting “mistakes” and “flawed reporting,” but the problem goes deeper and is ongoing. The coverage remains one-sided and excludes anti-war voices from citizens and anti-war groups all over the world. We need real journalism, not jingoism.

It's Time to Make the US Media Accountable! 


   
If you want to go even farther.......... 

“If a thousand [people] were not to pay their tax bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them and enable the state to commit violence and shed innocent blood. ”
—Henry David Thoreau, during Mexican-American War of 1846-48
..... opposition, however, is not limited to this one instance of armed aggression by our government. As citizens of this country, we are compelled by conscience to speak out against, and avoid cooperation with, that which has allowed this and other instances of military aggressions to occur and which makes likely further military aggression against other nations.

It is clear that the U.S. government's ability to threaten, coerce, and, if deemed necessary, make war on other nations is a direct result, not only of our economic might, but also the unprecedented size of our military arsenal, which is now far larger than that of all our allies and "enemies" combined. It is equally clear that the maintenance of this arsenal depends upon the willingness of the American people — through their federal tax payments — to finance it.

Refusal to pay taxes used to finance unjust wars, along with refusal by soldiers to fight in them, is a direct and potentially effective form of citizen noncooperation, and one that governments cannot ignore. War tax refusal has a long and honorable tradition among religious and secular opponents of war.

 
Things fall apart, the Center cannot hold...... W. B. Yeats
 

The Troops have to LAY DOWN THEIR WEAPONS, knowing that this is the TRUE patriotism -- TO STOP ACTING AS HIT MEN AND HIT WOMEN FOR THE BUSH-CHENEY CABAL.

I mean every single word of this.

The troops must STOP LAYING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR BUSH-CHENEY AND BIG OIL; AND START LAYING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR THEIR FAMILIES, THEIR COMMUNITIES, THEIR COUNTRY, FOR YOU AND ME -- INSTEAD.

 
PART OF THE "NOT IN OUR NAME" PLEDGE OF RESISTANCE

........and Not in our name
We pledge resistance

We pledge alliance with those
who have come under attack
for voicing opposition to the war
or for their religion or ethnicity

We pledge to make common cause
with the people of the world
to bring about justice,
freedom and peace

Another world is possible
and we pledge to make it real.


About
The Not In Our Name Pledge of Resistance was created collectively by artists and activists in April 2002 as a means of inspiring protest and resistance. It is at the heart of the Not In Our Name Project.

The Pledge was not intended to be signed, rather, it is a tool to be used by individuals, organizations and communities to inspire and strengthen individual and group resistance.
