When and Where to Vote
What to Bring
If Something Goes Wrong
Last call for Dale before the election. Next week will be the “I told ya so” post election special. Remember it is a grand old tradition in the Commonwealth to Vote Early and Vote Often…………….
By George Friedman | Oct. 30, 2012
The U.S. presidential election will be held a week from today, and if the polls are correct, the outcome will be extraordinarily close. Many say that the country has never been as deeply divided. In discussing the debates last week, I noted how this year’s campaign is far from the most bitter and vitriolic. It might therefore be useful also to consider that while the electorate at the moment appears evenly and deeply divided, unlike what many say, that does not reveal deep divisions in our society — unless our society has always been deeply divided.
Since 1820, the last year an uncontested election was held, most presidential elections have been extremely close. Lyndon B. Johnson received the largest percentage of votes any president has ever had in 1964, taking 61.5 percent of the vote. Three other presidents broke the 60 percent mark: Warren G. Harding in 1920, Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936 and Richard Nixon in 1972. Read More »
Are you registered to vote? Are you sure? Are all your friends and family registered voters?
I hope so, because Mitt Romney and the rest of the Republicans are doing everything they can to STOP people from voting. In some states they’re using discriminatory voter suppression laws, in some they’re flooding airwaves with deceptive negative ads—but the goal is the same. They know that a low turnout election is their surest path to victory.
Most Americans share our values—they want to protect Medicare and Social Security, they want the rich to pay their fair share in taxes, they want to invest in education and jobs. If everyone voted, Republicans wouldn’t stand a chance.
But the fact is, too many of them aren’t voters—and millions of progressives aren’t even registered. Let’s change that right now.
Voting registration deadlines are coming up fast, so we just set up moveon.org/vote to help people nationwide register before it’s too late.
Click here to register!
You might think everyone you know is already registered, but now is the time to double-check and pass this email along. Asking a friend or family member is one of the most effective ways to get someone to register to vote. It’s our responsibility to reach out and make sure all progressives are registered voters who get to the polls on Election Day.
If you know anyone who is not a registered voter, who has moved recently, or if you’re not sure whether someone is a registered voter, ask your friends and family to register here:
In 2008, 6 million people didn’t vote because they missed a deadline or didn’t know how to register.1 This election is going to come down to how many progressives turn out, and it all starts with registering in time.
Thanks for all you do.

P.S. Americans living abroad now must re-register every year in order to vote. Americans overseas can register online here: https://www.votefromabroad.org/

PLEDGE: Three Reasons to Never Eat Non-Organic Corn
Bt-corn is a type of genetically modified organism, termed GMO. This modified corn amplifies a toxin produced by the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) bacterium, which ruptures the intestines of insects that feed on the GMO corn when ingested. The pests typically die quickly after ingesting the toxin.
Genetically engineered Bt corn crops have been banned in many countries because of the documented harm they cause to people, animals, and insects. Bt corn lacks a meaningful inquiry into its effect on human health and negative environmental impact.
In addition to taking the pledge, please send your comments to the USDA:http://www.capwiz.com/grassrootsnetroots/issues/alert/?alertid=61734541&type=AN

Tune in soon for the hilarious mockumentary about how Mitt Romney survived his hardscrabble childhood ‘burbs of Bloomfield Hills to become the man he is today. It’s aptly named The Man from Bloomfield Hills, and it’s coming out just in time for Romney’s acceptance speech!
Our efforts to define Mitt Romney as the candidate for the 1% are working. Nearly 6 in 10 Americans think Romney will look out for the rich more than the middle class if he becomes president.1
But Romney just pulled ahead of President Obama in the latest national poll, and he’s gaining ground in some key swing states.2 At the Republican Convention in Tampa this week, Romney’s going to try to do what all the experts say he has to—make us believe that he actually cares about the middle class, even though all the evidence shows otherwise.
That’s why it’s so important to remind voters that Romney and Ryan will step on cash-strapped seniors by dismantling Medicare and walk over the struggling middle class with more taxes to pay for steep tax cuts for the rich.3 And we have a video that LITERALLY shows just that.
Watch this short video of Romney and Ryan accepting their nomination for President and Vice President of the 1%. And then share it with all your friends so that they’re not fooled.
Thanks for all you do.

Why is Ron Paul being marginalized by the media when he has won the majority vote in several large states?
Double Duty Democrats, After days trashing GOP ‘nominee’ Mitt Romney for his Swiss bank account, disclosure forms show that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz also had funds in a Swiss bank account. The Weekly Standard reported Tuesday that the Florida Democrat also had investments in foreign drug companies and the state bank of India.
President Obama Can Seize the Internet?
“Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions” Section 5.2 details the seizure of the internet in times of crisis………… The last major update to the USA’s communications networks and National Security was the Communications Act of 1932. That was 80 years ago when most of America was lucky to have a party line crank phone in the general store in town. Congress needs to wake up to the dangers of Presidential Executive Orders, which are rarely if ever suspended, like with the “Assault Weapon and Magazine Ban” signed by the first President Bush.
Now that the nation’s legal minds have had a few days to digest the Supreme Court ruling on the US national healthcare law many scholars are calling the ruling a huge win for the Libertarians and “States Rights” activists.
Join Ken and company for an in depth analysis of this landmark decision.
A Pyrrhic victory (/ˈpɪrɪk/) is a victory with such a devastating cost that it carries the implication that another such victory will ultimately lead to defeat. Someone who wins a “Pyrrhic victory” has been victorious in some way; however, the heavy toll and/or the detrimental consequences negates any sense of achievement or profit. There is, therefore, no reason to celebrate.
The 2012 Presidential Election just got very interesting.
