Because of all this BS about the Bend Over Party trying their hardest to win their loser to the White House I registered as a republican. Can't stand the BOP...but they are not surpressing their own voters.

I voted today for the first time in over 30 years in early voting. I was surprised more Democrats and Independents are not running for office. As a lifelong progressive...I voted for as many non-BOP candidates as possible...except for one in the state legislature who has and is helping those of us in Ham Radio. Couldn't think of anyone to write in for local and state offices...so that one person got my vote.

Long live Progressives and the future we want!

I will vote the way I want. How is my employer going to know? Their threats are empty.

Are the employeers going to punish all their employees if President Obama wins? An employeer has no way to know how their employees vote, and if I was being coerced into an action I know I would and have done the opposite just out of spite. In this case the fact the it is the right and smart decision just makes it that much sweeter.

But how many of those employees fall into the undecided (ignorant) voter? That is what worries me.

Look at the coal miners that had to attend a Romney rally or else. The TV cameras got a photo of them "supporting" Romney, and Romney now says in speeches he has their support.

These Co's are blow hards and are bluffing. GOP uses Fear , innuendo and smears to confuse/ misinform voters Karl Rove helped Bush 'win' ? Kathleen Harris and Gov Jeb Bush / Fla court handed Bush the 2000 election Just think if Gore had been Pres how much different it would have been. NO ignoring several strong CIA warnings about Bin Laden So NO 9 / 11 attack.NO 3000 deaths . NO Iraq war Saving lives and trillions that would be put to use to better America.. education, road -bridge repair, enviorment , clean up our water and air . Without OIL man Cheneys lack of control or safe guards on Big OIL NO BP OIL spill . accompanied by vast damage to border states , dumping tons of filthy oil into our oceans .

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.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."

"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
