textPresident Boooosh. We Are “In A Pickle” by James Boyne
I am a former staunch conservative Republican who has recently been “born again”. I have been “born again” into a progressive, populist and will vote for Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). I really don’t care what his party affiliation is or whether is called a liberal, moderate or conservative. Mr. Kucinich is a man of integrity, honesty, common sense and sincerity....

textTwilight of the Greens: The Chokehold of "Anybody But Bush" by repost
Glick, for example, maintains that a safe-states campaign "will put pressure on the Democratic presidential candidate to use more populist-sounding, anti-corporate language, as was the effect of the Nader/2000 candidacy on Al Gore, which then increased his standing in the polls and helped lead to his popular vote victory." True, but the job of an independent left political party should not be to help prowar, neoliberal John Kerry to sell himself more effectively at the polls....

textU.S. district judge refuses to lift state ban on electronic voting by repost
At least we've gotten this far. Certain disabled and handicapped people would have us risk the validity of the ENTIRE STATE so that they can vote alone. While it's unfortunate that everyone cannot be satisfied, it's amazing that they would put all of us in peril for their own needs. It makes me wonder who is really behind that push by the 'disabled.'...

textGreen Strategy 2004-2008 by Yoshie Furuhashi
How did the David Cobb/Pat LaMarche ticket receive the Green Party nomination? And what does it mean for the Green Party in particular and American politics in general? My conclusion is that the so-called "red states" Greens, by rejecting Ralph Nader/Peter Camejo campaign, first of all served to diminish the Green Party's own strength in the "safe state" of California, ironically without helping the pro-war Democratic Party candidate John Kerry (despite the hope of the Cob...

Dear San Francisco, So, now you have seen the Michael Moore movie that scrapes out some surface truth to the American public. Michael Moore seems like an American patriot to some sort of extreme. Sadly, it is just a hollywood-style act. Mr. Moore is still not willing to tell you the hard and ugly truth of the New World Order movement like Alex Jones of and others......

by Z
There was a rock concert parking lot feel to downtown Berkeley Tuesday as thousands camped out to get Clinton to sign prebought copies of his book. Several protesters played "Love me I'm a Liberal" on a boombox and yelled at the crowd about how Clinton's policies while in office were as bad as Bush's but the crowd chanted down the protesters wanting to endulge in nostalgia rather than think about government policies. Clinton signed books from around 12:300 until 4:00 at which point ...
