explain it to me [04 Nov 2004|12:33pm]

i woke up today still pissed off. i just can't understand it. according to exit polls, the majority of people that voted for bush were voting based on "moral issues." so someone please fucking explain to me why 51% of americans of voting age believe that keeping america's gay sons and daughters from being able to marry their partners and taking away a woman's right to chose is more important then keeping america's sons and daughters from dying in a dishonest unnecessary war and helping america's sons and daughters that are living in poverty.

on a slightly unrelated note, since those of us without health insurance aren't going to be getting any help anytime soon, please go to the breastcancer website and donate a free mammogram to an underpriviledged woman. it will cost you no money whatsoever. go there every day and donate as many as you can.

i have always felt a general sense of dislike for the way things are run in this country, but never so much anger and shame as i felt last night. i am sad and i am ASHAMED to be american. i do not want to raise my son in a country i am ashamed of. i do not want to raise my son in a society with so many shitty hangups that 11 states voted to ban gay marriage. i never felt unsafe in this country before bush became president. 9/11 isn't what changed that for me, I do not live in fear of terrorists, i live in fear of our president, soon to be dictator if things keep going his way. i fear what my son's future will be like if bush is allowed to continue destroying this country and everything it was supposed to stand for. people came to america to escape oppression, to have freedom of religion and be able to exercise their free will. for a while, things went forward. slavery was abolished, segregation in schools and public buildings and on public transportation was abolished, women and african americans were given the right to vote, abortion was made legal and women across the country stopped having to risk their lives to have a choice, and decade after decade, things generally got better and better. and i can't say difinitively that things only started getting worse when bush took office, but since then, our society has done nothing but regress. bush has tried to bring church into state even though it is quite obvious that he is not truly a practicing christian. yet he has tried to use faith as a reason for many horrible decisions. he has reversed the process of women gaining equal rights. he has nationally encouraged hatred based on sexual preference and tried to make our constitution a bigoted document. he is trying to renew the ban on abortion, which, maybe he doesn't want to realize, is not going to make abortion go away. women will go back to having it done illegally and risking their lives. his supposed war on terror is a joke and the war in iraq was unnecessary and dishonest and has killed so many innocent people that i can't even keep track. and don't even get me started on all the things he has done to screw over the poor and hungry in this country. it is sad to me that he has so easily brainwashed people with his scare tactics into believing that he is the only person in the world that can keep us safe, while he increases foreign hatred of america by the minute.

Here's an important heads up ...

Yesterday a friend voted early at a polling location in Austin. She voted straight Democratic. When she did the final check, lo and behold every vote was for the Democratic candidates except that it showed she had voted for Bush/Cheney for president/vice pres.

She immediately got a poll official. On her vote, it was corrected.

She called the Travis County Democratic headquarters. They took all her information, and told her that she wasn't the first to report a similar incident and that they are looking into it. So check before you leave the polling booth, and if anything is wrong, get it corrected immediately. Report any irregularities to your local Democratic headquarters. Make sure you pass this along to your friends ... hopefully this is all over the airwaves by tomorrow ...

The Texas voting fraud is for real. I called the Austin office (Dem. Nat. Comm.) 512-637-1737 and they said that it has been happening a lot. They don't know why but the machines seem more "sensitive" this year and that every voter MUST check their summary as the presidential choice often rolls over to the republican choice if you vote straight democrat.

Hi there!

I just wrote this to post in my own journal tonight, but I thought the people in this community might like it. It's about what you can do in the next thirteen days from the comfort of your own butt to help elect John Kerry. I'm not looking to debate or discuss the election, really. I just thought I'd put it out there for anyone who is interested. Plus I'm following my own advice, as you'll see at the end. Anyway, enjoy and pass on, or ignore and don't pass on. But have a fine day and don't forget to bring a friend to the polls on Nov. 2nd!

To those helping us promote the site KerryOnIraqWar.com [13 Oct 2004|04:00pm]

I asked for help promoting this site on google and a lot of people kindly responded. Unfortunately, I just learned from a blog that google stopped reading the kinds of keywords we put into the code about 3 weeks ago. In other words, the search terms "Kerry Iraq war" that we put in are suddenly invisible to google. So I need to ask those who are helping, if you could be kind to us once more and add the words "Kerry on Iraq War: John Kerry's consistent position on the Iraq war" under or near the banner.

Kerry On Iraq War: John Kerry's consistent position on the Iraq

Sorry to come back and ask for help a 2nd time; we researched google but didn't know things were changing just now. Thank you, everyone who's been helping us. For those who didn't see the first message, please take a look at the site and consider linking to us. The banner code is under the LJ-cut. I'll stop spamming now.

This is a site with posters that you can print and hang up to help influence the vote.
The posters include the address to the site so people can get the posters themselves

The people in this community post long entries, which is good. However, they tend to take up a lot of space on your Friend's Pages. I ask if you can put the longer entries into LJ cuts, so that way they don't take up too much space.

Bush's Mystery Bulge [09 Oct 2004|03:13pm]

By: Dave Lindorff

Was President Bush literally channeling Karl Rove in his first debate with John Kerry? That's the latest rumor flooding the Internet, unleashed last week in the wake of an image caught by a television camera during the Miami debate. The image shows a large solid object between Bush's shoulder blades as he leans over the lectern and faces moderator Jim Lehrer.

The president is not known to wear a back brace, and it's safe to say he wasn't packing. So was the bulge under his well-tailored jacket a hidden receiver, picking up transmissions from someone offstage feeding the president answers through a hidden earpiece? Did the device explain why the normally ramrod-straight president seemed hunched over during much of the debate?

Can you help us googlebomb a pro-Kerry site? [08 Oct 2004|07:00pm]

We're working on raising the google ranking of http://www.kerryoniraqwar.com, a site designed to set the record straight about Kerry's consistent position on Iraq. If you can take a minute to paste our banner and key words on a webpage or in LJ User info, we'd really appreciate it (google ranks a site based on how many sites link to it and include their key search terms). We've already heard from undecided voters who say that now that they've seen the site and know the truth about what Kerry has been saying about Iraq, they'll vote for him. We've also heard from Dems and volunteers who are grateful to have it as a resource. It's clear the site is useful, and we want to make it easier to find.

Another View:
Why I will vote for John Kerry for President
Guest Commentary

THE Presidential election to be held this coming Nov. 2 will be one of extraordinary importance to the future of our nation. The outcome will determine whether this country will continue on the same path it has followed for the last 3½ years or whether it will return to a set of core domestic and foreign policy values that have been at the heart of what has made this country great.

Now more than ever, we voters will have to make cool judgments, unencumbered by habits of the past. Experts tell us that we tend to vote as our parents did or as we “always have.” We remained loyal to party labels. We cannot afford that luxury in the election of 2004. There are times when we must break with the past, and I believe this is one of them.

As son of a Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, it is automatically expected by many that I am a Republican. For 50 years, through the election of 2000, I was. With the current administration’s decision to invade Iraq unilaterally, however, I changed my voter registration to independent, and barring some utterly unforeseen development, I intend to vote for the Democratic Presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry.

The fact is that today’s “Republican” Party is one with which I am totally unfamiliar. To me, the word “Republican” has always been synonymous with the word “responsibility,” which has meant limiting our governmental obligations to those we can afford in human and financial terms. Today’s whopping budget deficit of some $440 billion does not meet that criterion.

Responsibility used to be observed in foreign affairs. That has meant respect for others. America, though recognized as the leader of the community of nations, has always acted as a part of it, not as a maverick separate from that community and at times insulting towards it. Leadership involves setting a direction and building consensus, not viewing other countries as practically devoid of significance. Recent developments indicate that the current Republican Party leadership has confused confident leadership with hubris and arrogance.

In the Middle East crisis of 1991, President George H.W. Bush marshaled world opinion through the United Nations before employing military force to free Kuwait from Saddam Hussein. Through negotiation he arranged for the action to be financed by all the industrialized nations, not just the United States. When Kuwait had been freed, President George H. W. Bush stayed within the United Nations mandate, aware of the dangers of occupying an entire nation.

Today many people are rightly concerned about our precious individual freedoms, our privacy, the basis of our democracy. Of course we must fight terrorism, but have we irresponsibly gone overboard in doing so? I wonder. In 1960, President Eisenhower told the Republican convention, “If ever we put any other value above (our) liberty, and above principle, we shall lose both.” I would appreciate hearing such warnings from the Republican Party of today.

The Republican Party I used to know placed heavy emphasis on fiscal responsibility, which included balancing the budget whenever the state of the economy allowed it to do so. The Eisenhower administration accomplished that difficult task three times during its eight years in office. It did not attain that remarkable achievement by cutting taxes for the rich. Republicans disliked taxes, of course, but the party accepted them as a necessary means of keep the nation’s financial structure sound.

The Republicans used to be deeply concerned for the middle class and small business. Today’s Republican leadership, while not solely accountable for the loss of American jobs, encourages it with its tax code and heads us in the direction of a society of very rich and very poor.

Sen. Kerry, in whom I am willing to place my trust, has demonstrated that he is courageous, sober, competent, and concerned with fighting the dangers associated with the widening socio-economic gap in this country. I will vote for him enthusiastically.

I celebrate, along with other Americans, the diversity of opinion in this country. But let it be based on careful thought. I urge everyone, Republicans and Democrats alike, to avoid voting for a ticket merely because it carries the label of the party of one’s parents or of our own ingrained habits.

hey everybody, i just joined this community today and i thought i should introduce myself. my name's lyric, i'm a 20 year old stay at home mom with a one year old son. i recently discovered that my boyfriend of four years and the father of my child has decided to support bush during this election. i have not discussed his reasoning with him other than for him to say that bush seems like the best choice of the three candidates, because i do not want to fight with him about it. needless to say, i am deeply disturbed and upset by this. i had already planned to support kerry for the obvious reasons, but now i have the reason that my vote will cancel his out if he votes for bush. i do not want to raise my son in a country run by that man.
