If you live in the United States I really hope that you are exciting about being a part of this election tomorrow…

Did you ever play a game where there are some people who aren’t really into it, and they just kinda go along it with and it’s not as fun as when everyone in the room is pumped up?
That’s kind of how I feel about the system of politics here in this country…

and of course, maybe the game itself needs a lot of common sense improvement… but until then we might as well all play as well as we can and make the best informed decisions…

Here’s a good seemingly unbiased comparison of important issues in the this election… take the quiz and see how you want to vote… and then go make yourself heard… If you need to find your polling place and times… click on this link:

Thanks for everything… you are an amazing superhero with all the power in the universe!!!!

That could be true.

The 10 Reasons to VOTE

The party that controls the House of Representatives or The Senate determines the policies and direction of America.  When you vote for a candidate on November 2, you are also voting for an entire party.  Check the positions you agree with and see which party most reflects your values and then vote accordingly.  Each of the 10 Issues reflect actual statements, positions and votes held and taken by the VAST majority of Congressmen and Senators in each party over the past two years in The United States Congress.

Which America Do You Want???

I.  Jobs
Republicans believe that cutting taxes for large and small businesses and further reducing investment taxes on capital gains and dividends will spur job growth
Democrats want to try to create jobs by limiting the outsourcing of jobs to other countries and by creating and investing in new industries such as clean tech/alternative energy like solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, algae fuels.

II.  Gays in The Military
Democrats will end Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
Republicans will keep Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

III.  Oil Spills
Democrats will make oil companies pay for all oil spill damage and want to investigate what went wrong with the BP oil spill.
Republicans want to keep the $75 million limit on what oil companies have to pay - taxpayers to pay the rest.  Senate Republicans have blocked the investigation of BP and the BP oil spill.

IV.  Climate Change
Republicans oppose climate change legislation because they believe that global warming/climate change is not a significant issue and, even if it is, that it is not man made
Democrats want to limit “greenhouse gases” because they believe that global warming/climate change is a significant issue and is significantly man made

V.  The “Bush Tax Cuts” and The National Debt
Republicans will make the Bush Tax Cuts permanent for people making less than $250,000 per year only if the tax cuts for wealthier individuals making over $250,000 is also made permanent.  Tax cuts for those who make over $250,000 per year will cost $700 Billion over the next ten years.  They want to cut the national debt.
Democrats will make Middle Class tax cuts permanent for people making less than $250,000 per year but do not want to extend tax cuts for those making over $250,000.  They want to cut the national debt.

VI.  Energy Independence/Alternative Energy for America
Democrats want to get off of oil as our chief source of energy, stop or reduce our subsidies to oil companies and move as fast as possible to develop renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, geothermal, tidal and algae
Republicans will rely on oil as our chief source of energy, continue or increase the subsidies to oil companies, expand drilling for oil in The United States and primarily rely on building nuclear energy plants as “alternative energy” for America’s energy needs

VII.  Campaign Finance
Democrats attempted to limit how much individuals, corporations, special interests and lobbyists spend on elections and also attempted to require that corporations disclose their financing of political television and radio ads.  All such efforts were filibustered or defeated in the Senate by the Republicans.  With a strong majority, enough to overcome a Republican filibuster, Democrats will pass much if not all of the above legislation as well as Public Financing of campaigns
Republicans oppose limits on how much individuals, corporations, special interests and their lobbyists can spend to get elected, oppose Public Financing and oppose requiring corporations to disclose their financing of political television and radio ads

VIII.  Health Care
Republicans will repeal the recently passed health care reform legislation
Democrats will keep the recently passed health care legislation which includes reforms to add insurance coverage for approximately 30 million, allow young people to stay on their parents’ policy until they are 26 and end insurance companies rights to terminate coverage when one gets sick or loses their job.

IX. Wall Street
Democrats believe that the kinds of investment activity that lead to the recent Wall Street crisis, including the need to bail out AIG and the bankruptcy of many firms should be more tightly regulated to prevent a re-occurrence.
Republicans believe in “Laissez Faire”, that corporations are “people” and generally want banks and corporations to have less regulation and be left alone.  Some “Tea Party” Republican candidates do not believe in any Federal regulation of businesses, including the requirement that restaurants serve African Americans.
 
X.  Abortion
Republicans will attempt to overturn “Roe v. Wade” and make abortions illegal in states that don’t want them
Democrats believe that a woman’s right to choose an abortion is hers and hers alone, and that the current law (“Roe v. Wade”) allowing abortion in all states should be continued

And, on a Civics 101 Note . . .

The House:
If Republicans gain a majority in The House of Representatives, John Boehner will likely become Speaker of The House of Representatives and Republicans holding the above views and positions will become Chairmen and Chairwomen of every Committee and Sub-Committee, including, for example, Joe Barton as Chairman of the House Energy Committee.  John Boehner has a 7% rating on environmental issues from The League of Conservation Voters.  Joe Barton has a 7% rating.

If Democrats retain the majority in The House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi will likely remain Speaker of The House of Representatives and Democrats holding the above views and positions will remain Chairmen and Chairwomen of every Committee and Sub-Committee, including, for example, Henry Waxman, as Chairman of the House Energy Committee.  Nancy Pelosi has a 100% rating on environmental issues from The League of Conservation Voters.  Henry Waxman also has a 100% rating.


The Senate:
If Republicans gain a majority in The Senate, Mitch McConnell will likely become Majority Leader and Republicans holding the above views and positions will become Chairmen and Chairwomen of every Committee and Sub-Committee, including, for example, James Inhofe as Chairman of the Senate Energy and Public Works Committee.  Mitch McConnell has a 0% rating on environmental issues from The League of Conservation Voters.  James Inhofe is considered America’s highest ranking “Global Warming Denier” and has a 5% rating.

If Democrats retain the majority in The Senate, Harry Reid will likely remain Majority Leader and Democrats holding the above views and positions will remain Chairmen and Chairwomen of every Committee and Sub-Committee, including, for example, Barbara Boxer, as Chairman of the Senate Energy and Public Works Committee.  Harry Reid has a 100% rating on environmental issues from The League of Conservation Voters.  Barbara Boxer also has a 100% rating.

The Sane and Simple Way to Vote

I agree with the Republican Party position ____ times
I agree with the Democratic Party position ____ times

Either way . . . VOTE on November 2!!

What a day… here in Fresno… the tour continues… The best tour
ever… although looking back it seems like each one just keeps
getting better than the last one, so hopefully that will continue on
into the future… Thanks SOOOO much to everyone that has been coming
to the shows… we hope you’re enjoying them as much as we are…

As I’m writing this I’m listening to the beautiful music that is
playing on this amazing website: http://waterlife.nfb.ca/

It’s about water… one of my favorite things… well, actually, it’s
specifically about the Great Lakes here in North America…
check it out… enjoy the music… share the site…

what are we supposed to do with a piece of information like “100
billion gallons of water evaporate from the Great Lakes every
day” ?!?!?!

hmmmm… well… something… right?

Did you know I was going to post this?

If so maybe you don’t even need to watch unless you’re curious about
other people who also have extra sensory perception. Anyway… You
know all that talk about a new consciousness flowering on this
earth… This type of dialogue could definitely be moving us in a new
direction.
Enjoy and stay tuned. Not that you don’t already know how it’s going
to turn out…
Aloha
