Are we doomed to have more stolen elections?

A close national election, like everyone is expecting this year, translates to an even closer election in the states where all it will take is a few thousand voters to flip an election. It is way too easy to steal an election in America. Our Electoral College allows just one or two states to swing a Presidential election every year. The privatization of the vote with electronic voting machines has handed over the beating heart of our democracy - the vote - to corporate interests who then handle it in secret. And the lack of an explicit federal "right to vote" for all eligible Americans has made voter suppression efforts much easier and harder to prosecute or prevent. We must fundamentally change how we elect our President and who gets to vote in that election. Until we do this, we don't have a democratic republic that the rest of the world should emulate - we just have a dysfunctional system that the plutocrats can steal and more closely resembles an oligarchy than a republic.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Pianticously Ugly!

The Good! *The New York Times* Yesterday - the Times' editorial board officially endorsed the marriage equality ballot intiatives that will be voted on in four states on Election Day. In the endorsement - the paper urged residents of Maryland, Minnesota, Maine and Washington State to "not place their state so sharply on the wrong side of fairness." The editorial went on to say that, "the freedom to marry is a fundamental right that should not have to be won or defended at the ballot box." Unfortunately - the sad reality in America is that marriage equality does in fact have to be put to a vote. Let's hope that more and more Americans realize that everyone should have the right to marry whomever they want - and vote for marriage equality on Election Day

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
