There is quite a lot of interesting, but wild, speculation running around the
blog-o-sphere, progressive circles and just plain dinner conversation
these days about whether BushCo will allow a peaceful and
constitutional transfer of Executive power in the ’08 elections.
t is truly touching the way First Lady Laura Bush cares about the
people of Burma and is using her officiousness (oops...I think that may
be the wrong word...or is it?) to bring attention to the admittedly
horrible situation there. There are very few people in the world that
would not sympathize with or become outraged when monks are beaten and
killed because they protested high gas prices.
I knew it was not going to be easy to challenge the two party duopoly (that is brought to us by the US Military Industrial Media Complex), but I did not realize how hard this same system would make it to obtain ballot access.
In California, if one has the audacity to actually want to represent the voice of the people and not represent the corporate parties, then you have to obtain signatures amounting to 3% of EVERYONE who voted in the last election, no matter what party, to get on the ballot.
