As Florida Goes, So Goes The Nation

The five that could make the difference.

I represent the 1,194,302 registered women in Florida who did not vote in 2004. I support Obama but there is a lot going on right now. Please let me know my closest early vote location. I could make the difference.

I represent the 626,280 registered 18-29 year olds in Florida who did not vote in 2004. We need change and if you tell me more about early voting, I can definitely fit it in my schedule since it gives me more flexibility. I could make the difference.

I represent one of the 365,320 registered African American voters in Florida who did not vote in 2004. I am excited to vote for Obama, but a reminder will help to make sure I don't put it off. I could make the difference.

I represent the 349,716 registered seniors in Florida who did not vote in 2004. I know we need new leadership in Washington, and I live right by an early vote location, but I just might need a ride. I could make the difference.

I represent the 299,136 registered Hispanics in Florida who did not vote in 2004. Barack is more than a politician, he's a leader. If you remind me that I have over a 10 day window to early vote, I could make the difference.

John McCain has experience, See the Keating Five

The Savings and Loan Scandal was the end of an era of big Texas Ponzi Schemes, designed to steal pensions from old folks and let the taxpayers clean up the mess.

It was the end of the REGAN years, and the sheep were slaughtered all over the map. John McCain was bribed to defend Keating and he did his job. But that crisis only cost $124-Billion, and Black Tuesday, in October 1987, only dropped the stock market 20%.

Today, with globalization, we face a world wide depression, the culmination of just 8 short years of the Bush Administration's deregulation of capitol markets, and once again, JOHN MCCAIN has been along for the ride, all the way to the bank.

Vote for JOHN MCCAIN, and put an end to the suffering.

I know this is redundant for anyone over 30 years old, but for new voters, THE CURRENT BANKING BAIL-OUT WAS DONE BEFORE. They suckered the US public in a dress rehearsal in the 1980's, now they want you to elect the architect.


The Problem with Pyramid Schemes is that they make everyone involved either a THIEF or a FOOL, and thus corrupt everyone. Thus everyone involved in such a diseased system is motivated to avoid the truth and accountability. - MER

ACORN does good work, REPUBLICANS commit voter suppression

In a desperate attempt to suppress voter turnout, the McCain campaign has accused ACORN, a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people committed to social and economic justice, of voter fraud!

Here's what he's not telling you:

--The only fraud committed was against ACORN itself. ACORN hired 13,000 workers to register a remarkable 1.3 million new voters. And a few of them turned in registration forms with inaccurate and even made-up names to get credit for work they didn't do. ACORN fired them and turned them over to the authorities.

--ACORN reported the fraudulent registration forms. In most states, ACORN is required by law to submit all forms collected whether they appear to be bogus or not—that way election officials, not partisan groups, can make the call. ACORN flags cards that may not be legitimate. And in many places, the charges of fraud only came up because ACORN was the one who flagged the cards!

--This won't have any impact on the election. No one is allowed to vote unless they are properly registered. And there is no evidence of false registrations actually leading to organized voting fraud.

ACORN has dedicated Quality Control staff which calls the person listed on every card to verify information.

--ACORN alerts election officials whenever its Quality Control staff find a card that appears to be a duplicate or problematic.

--In most states, the law requires that every signed card be turned into election officials, even if it is fake or incomplete.
ACORN is now being attacked by partisan officials over problematic cards that ACORN itself pointed out, in writing, to election officials.

--ACORN employed thousands of part-time canvassers to work on its voter registration drives, and most of these individuals did a great job.

In the relatively few cases where some canvassers have turned in bad voter registration cards, there has never been any evidence that so-called “voter fraud” was the motive.

As these cases prove, it is extraordinarily difficult to falsely register to vote, and fraudulent voting by individuals is extremely rare.

Rather, these cases appear to be nothing more than former part-time workers trying to get paid for doing work they didn’t do—like a store clerk shoplifting from his or her employer.

Behind the partisan attacks

The goals of the people orchestrating partisan attacks against are to distract ACORN from helping people vote and to justify massive voter suppression.

In 2004 and 2006, attacks against voter registration drives were orchestrated by political forces that have since been exposed by the U.S. Attorneygate scandal to have been working in conjunction with a politicized Department of Justice to push a partisan agenda of voter suppression.

Pelosi Must Go.

When Congress ultimately completely ignored the almost unilateral
voice of the American people AGAINST the bailout for billionaire
bankers, it was supposed to restore confidence to the financial
markets. It has done exactly the opposite, as the stock market has
dropped over 1,000 points SINCE the Senate passed it. Indeed the only
substantial up day was the one AFTER the original House rejection.

And in case anyone missed it, according to our Constitution, ALL
funding bills must originate in the House. So -- by using preemptive
Senate passage to hustle reluctant House members, Nancy Pelosi has
once again presided over a further enfeeblement of the chamber she is
supposed to be leading, just as she grossly abused her power and
defied the Constitution herself in blocking action on impeachment.

Pelosi Must Go.

TV Spot Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/cindy/bankers_bailout.php

She must be defeated in four weeks by Cindy Sheehan who is on the
ballot for the 8th congressional district of California in San
Francisco, and who is collecting powerful endorsements from sources
like the Bay Area Guardian.

Please watch Cindy Sheehan's new TV spot, which with your help can be
running in heavy rotation in her district within a day or two.

By arrogantly dismissing our literally millions of phone calls and
emails vehemently opposed to this lunatic policy blunder, Congress
has demonstrated that they are for the most part beyond redemption.
We have only one practical recourse. Vote the cowardly losers out of
office as just soon as possible, and replace each and every one of
them with strong progressives who WILL be accountable to the people.

We MUST Help Cindy Sheehan defeat Nancy Pelosi

This is our only real chance for the next two years. Nothing would
send a stronger message that the voice of the people actually COUNTS
for something that a resounding victory for Cindy Sheehan in the
Congressional race for the 8th district of California against Nancy
Pelosi in just 4 weeks. NOTHING would send a stronger message to the
gutless wimps in Congress that their reign of cowardice is over.

What we need is literally a tsunami of donations to put Cindy
Sheehan's new TV spot on the air, where she pulls no punches about
the abject failure of Pelosi to lead. If you are frustrated, if you
are angry, if you can make a donation of any amount, please do so
from the page below.

Watch The New TV Spot:

And as if all this weren't galling enough. How do you like how Bush
came out in the Rose Garden after signing the "Fox In Charge Of The
Hen House Bill" to basically say, "Thanks, chumps."?

How dare they call themselves "Representatives"? How dare they! With
their phones flooded a hundred to one shouting down this massive
theft from the American taxpayer, with such an avalanche of emails
coming the House email servers almost crashed, how dare they?! And
guess what, the people were right. The hundreds of top economists
pleading for sanity and a hearing were right.

Pelosi, the queen of the cave-ins, must be defeated. There can be no
honor in allowing her to remain in office. Shame on us if we don't do
everything we could have done to remove her. Then and only then can
all the other things that need to be done to fix this disaster be

And please, if you are the San Francisco area. Cindy needs an army of
volunteers to hit the streets inspiring voters. And even if you are
not, you can help make phone calls. There are volunteer links on the
same page with the video. You can do something. You must do
something. Please help.

And let election day this time be a bright and shining day where we
the people actually start to take back control of our own government.

The World Can't Wait

You might be surprised to know that I don't read the Wall Street Journal regularly. A friend just sent me Peggy Noonan's column for Friday,"Playing Frisbee on a Precipice." The WSJ generally presents the views of those who run the empire, and clearly they are worried:

"Both campaigns, in the closing stretch, seem not fully worthy of the moment. We are in crisis-a once-in-a-century event, as we now say. And what we got from the candidates, in this week's presidential debate, was a bunch of gummy meanderings-smooth, rounded sentences so full of focus-grouped inanities that six minutes in viewers entered a kind of trance in which we almost immediately gave up on trying to wrest meaning from what was being said and instead focused on mere impressions. The look of things. The men on the plane, the pseudo-tough political operatives who surround both candidates, sometimes grouse, in private, that it's all symbols now, all mood, all about the visual.

But they have some real responsibility here. They send their candidates out to speak such thin gruel, such spat-out porridge, that we are struck dumb, and left daydreaming about the fact that Mr. Obama's suits are always slate gray and never seem to wrinkle, and Mr. McCain tonight seems like a rabbity forest creature darting amid the hedgerows.

Why would anyone trust either candidate to help dig us out of this if they can't speak frankly about what got us into it?"

From the standpoint of those who don't even want an empire, I agree! There isn't anyone "up there" who can fix what is going on with the globalized economy. They won't stop the "war of terror" yet Congress approved, and Bush signed a law today that rewards India for developing nukes. And none of this has anything to do with elections - the people have no say in it.

Investigate Karl Rove's Election Manipulations

Several whistleblowers have recently come forward with strong evidence indicating that Karl Rove has architected and directed the manipulation of national elections through various invisible and illegal means, including vote
tabulation manipulation, partisan use of the Justice Department to target
Democrats and uncooperative US Attorneys, and the laundering of hundreds of
millions of corporate dollars into fake advocacy groups to attack Democrat
candidates for public office. The US Chamber of Commerce, which has spent almost a half billion dollars the past decade lobbying on behalf of big business, has been used as an instrument of Rove according to attorneys investigating this matter.

We need to know the truth about these manipulations, and expose Rove and his
cohorts before the November general election. Press accounts and
insiders say that the same people who have manipulated past elections are
now working for John McCain to ensure his win in November.

Please investigate this serious matter prior to the election by holding
public hearings and also request the appointment of a special prosecutor to
investigate the manipulation of our elections by Karl Rove and his

Please go to www.rovecybergate.com for press articles, videos and

Rove's illegal election manipulations.
