Full Version: Election 2010: Barbarians At Our Gate

2010 is a more impotent election than 2000, 2004 or 2008.

This election year is about ideas. Will the United States be governed by Liberalism and those who believe in science and human progress or by Conservatism and the back water ideology of the dark-ages.

In sum this election is a referendum on weather the future of America will be determined by Thomas Pain or Thomson Aquinas.

I am not asking you to vote Democrat. I am asking you to get involved in getting out the vote so that those inclined to do so will.

As you know I am a long time Green supporter and even this year I plan on voting green. But I am planing on working for Democrats to get out the vote.

The Barbarians are at our gate. This election will determine can we drive them back or will we let them impose their Big Brother theocracy into out most intimate decisions.

We can not loose this election and we will not.

Though I also prefer to go third party, for too many years I've been sucked into this mire where I vote for some scummy Democrat because I'm frightened by the opposition. Then the Dem gets in office, acts pretty much exactlty like a Republican and tells me that I need to support the dem party again because the other side is so much worse. This line of reasoning is starting to wear very thin the older I get.

While I certainly support anyone's choice to vote "least worst" I have this to say: Eugene V. Debs, who ran for president as a socialist in 1920 while imprisoned for exercising his free speech to speak out against US involvement in World War I and drew over 1,000,000 votes, observed, "I would rather vote for something I want and not get it than to vote for something I don't want, and get it."

Me, too.

I was pissed at the news coverage of the election, as usual. Lots of 3rd parties were actually on the Ohio ballot...greens, socialsts, libertarians. Naturally the Rs swept our state b/c so many of us were pissed at those scumdick democrats. THe news media reported that we leftwingers must have stayed home or voted conservative. Not a word was spoken about so many people going third party. mad.gif

Our new R Gov wants to make our libraries into a "pay to use" service. I guess the people don't need libraries unless we shell out the $$$ out of hand. Don't even ask me where our tax money will start going.
