I've been reflecting on the long lines in Arizona and the effective disenfranchisement of so many voters. It's too late for the voters in Arizona, but going forward we can make it an opportunity whenever we convene in lines at caucuses or primaries.

Always talk to others who are waiting and offer to exchange names, phone numbers, and emails. Carry paper and pen if you're old school like me but get the information on smart phones or other devices if you have them.

Ask people to join you to build coalitions and suggest getting together after events to compare notes and pictures. Start a liberal buzz at a local establishment at a particular time and date. If in fact there is something out of whack that can be contested, it would be very helpful to be able to bring together verifiable, eye witness testimony.

Having an interchangable list of people who will work together to advocate for a candidate or an issue is empowering and an effective counter blow to attempts to prevent voting or freedom of assembly. Jane in Colorado

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
