“That we have the vote means nothing. That we use it in the right way means everything.”

― Lou Henry Hoover

“Voter apathy was, and will remain the greatest threat to democracy.”

reversing citizen united

Dear Thom,

The supreme court has run amuck in the last few years with the Citizens United, Mccutchen and the gutting of the voting rights act. I am putting forward an idea and if you think it is reasonable I would hope you could address it to Senator Sanders or any other member of Congress you might talk to.

An Exceptional Legacy Program

Sometimes when weapons supposedly intended for Kurdish fighters in Syria go to the islamic state, there is no learning curve for the arms dealer or the mongers. And that is an exceptional legacy program.

Attacking atheism

I noticed that when someone points out parralels by hardcore atheists and hardcore religious people, atheists often respond very defensivly.

This was my experience dealing with super-atheists when I noticed they would sanction violence in the name of reason or would not take in account facts that might make them rething their positions.

"So what I need everybody to do is just go out and vote." - President Obama

Yesterday President Obama said what we all know to be true and what we all have known for months “In most of these states and most of these congressional districts, if we have high turn out we win and when we have low turnout, we lose, it’s as simple as that. So what I need everybody to do is just go out and vote.

13 DAYS UNTIL WE CAN CHANGE THIS CONGRESS AND THE SENATE ON NOVEMBER 4th!

Robust voter turnout is fundamental to a healthy democracy. As low turnout is usually attributed to political disengagement and the belief that voting for one candidate/party or another will do little to alter public policy, “established” democracies tend have higher turnout than other counties.
