Pitcairn Island "government" and the illuminati satanic agenda (child rape as "culture")
Women accusing the men that raped them as 10 year old girls. In the end the rapists will continue to run free, after some headlines for the sheeple that they were "convicted". So what's special about the Pitcairn island process, besides the fact that it takes place in the most remote corner of the British Empire ?

"Bush Relatives for Kerry"
"Bush Relatives for Kerry" grew out of a series of conversations that took place between a group of people that have two things in common: they are all related to George Walker Bush, and they are all voting for John Kerry. As the election approaches, we feel it is our responsibility to speak out about why we are voting for John Kerry, and to do our small part to help America heal from the sickness it has suffered since George Bush was appointed President in 2000. We invite you to read our stories, and please, don't vote for our cousin!"

Voting in a Culture of Occupation: An Interview with Derrick Jensen
One of the things that I want to say about this that I haven't yet said is that a two party dictatorship is much smarter than a one party dictatorship. If you really want to control someone, what you do is you give them the illusion of choice. Then they perceive themselves as being free, and there's nobody more enslaved than the slave who doesn't even know that he or she is enslaved.

One of the things the Nazis did that was really brilliant is they would give the Jews what some of the Jews would call "brain busters." They would give them the choice "Are you going to have a red identity card or a blue identity card?" A lot of the Jews then spent a lot of time going "Oh, my gosh, um, am I going to have a better chance at surviving if I get the red one or the blue one?" Of course it didn't make any difference at all. But they didn't know that so they would spend all this time figuring out if they should register as a tinker or a shoe-maker. Once again it didn't matter in the slightest but they are spending all their energy doing that instead of spending their energy trying to bring down the whole system. That's sort of what our choices are reduced to. It's a brilliant strategy on the part of any oppressor. It's a classic tool of abusers - false choices. If you can get the abuse victim to participate in her or his own degradation then you've got them, and then you barely need to do anything.

Injustice and unjustness, its inhumane forms have taken on a mind of its own. It resembles an oligarchy, not a democracy. An oligarchy is a political system governed by a few people. Any subgroup of the whole governmental system is still an aspect of its evolutionary direction, what it is becoming even under Measure Eleven.

Why I Don't Vote
I don't vote. I have never taken part in an election and I never will. To many, the idea that someone who cares so much about what is happening in the world would refuse to vote seems incredible. The common sense of the democratic state tells us that voting is the way that we can change things and that those who don't vote are apathetic. It has even been said that those who do not vote shouldn't complain.

An open letter to Mr. Ralph Nader, in a time of grave crisis
My requirements for obtaining my vote, which were established 8 years ago when I stopped voting for the Democratic Party and began voting for Ralph Nader as the only candidate who fulfilled 70% of those requirements or more, must now be set aside. The problem is not Kerry (he's average for Democrats and rates about 50 percent on my scale) but Bush, who represents the true essence of all that is most stupid, putrid, evil and malignant in the country and on the planet, and has laughingly decided to mock public opinion by brazenly stealing the second election. I believe that since he is willing to slap us by stealing the election then we, you, Mr. Nader and the rest of us who support you, must loudly throw our sad towels into the ring and tumble the statistics and probability estimates by voting for Mr. Kerry and stopping this fraud.

Gore preaches anger management to blacks
Al Gore is touring black churches in Florida telling black voters to consider directing their energy to voting instead of lashing out in "angry acts" and "angry words". Gore had similar misgivings about black anger in 2000 when he ordered Jesse Jackson to shut up about racist disenfranchisement of black voters in Florida. Al Gore's father, who had one of the most "liberal" Senate voting records of his time, similarly felt the 1964 Civil Rights Act was rash, tried to gut it, then voted against it.

The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy…And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer

EDITORS' NOTE: Amidst widespread revulsion over George Bush and everything he stands for, millions are increasingly desperate, frustrated, and angry as they realize the election of 2004 offers them no possibility to vote against the war in Iraq, the Patriot Act and other horrors of the Bush agenda. And this realization that on crucial questions confronting the people of the U.S. and the entire world John Kerry does not offer any serious challenge to Bush highlights the reality that THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE EXERCISED IN THIS ELECTION.

A Response to the "Kerry in Swing State" Petition Signers

Many of the individuals who gave a blanket endorsement to Nader in the 2000 election have signed a petition urging "support for Kerry/Edwards in all swing states, even while we strongly disagree with Kerry's policies on Iraq and other issues." (See: http://www.votetostopbush.com)

Many warned at the time that some sort of "strategic voting" would be needed in 2000. (See my piece "A New Way To Vote -- As A Duet" http://www.commondreams.org/views/102900-105.htm)

Clearly, in states which Bush or Kerry have basically stated they will lose -- so-called "non-swing states" -- voting for whoever you want is a no-brainer.

DEATH BY STONING FOR GAYS AND ADULTERERS? DECODING THE BUSH/EXTREME-RIGHT AGENDA.
In his new book, "Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney's New World Order," Mark Crispin Miller paints a sobering picture of the American extreme right and its campaign to dismantle Constitutional government and replace it with a pseudo-religious, "Christo-fascist" theocracy in which Old Testament law--and the Ten Commandments--would be brutally enforced. Death by stoning for adultery, for abortion, for homosexuality, and even for disobedient children. Could it happen here? Is the Bush administration already pursuing this vision? And will we vote to reject this vision on November 2? Yes, we will!

A Bush pre-election strike on Iran 'imminent'
According to White House and Washington Beltway insiders, the Bush administration, worried that it could lose the presidential election to Senator John F. Kerry, has initiated plans to launch a military strike on Iran's top Islamic leadership, its nuclear reactor at Bushehr on the Persian Gulf, and key nuclear targets throughout the country, including the main underground research site at Natanz in central Iran and another in Isfahan.....


The Iran attack plan was reportedly drawn up after internal polling indicated that if the Bush administration launched a so-called anti-terrorist attack on Iran some two weeks before the election, Bush would be assured of a landslide win against Kerry.

It's the Boomers, after all
There is something to be said for the influence and identity of a generation. History is cyclical, and I find myself wondering if it is any accident that the length of time between the great conflicts of our nation's history are separated by the period of a lifetime. It takes that long for people who experienced war first hand (as young men) and were humbled by it to pass from power. They are then supplanted by their children who have spent a lifetime living in the shadow of heroic and noble deeds. But the baby boomers appear to be singular in American History. If no suitable noble cause presents itself, they are determined to create one...
