From a Nation Magazine editorial, entitled, Stand and Fight: The fight is over. Let the fight begin. There must be a fierce resistance in defense of democracy.

The one magazine that Barbara and I subscribe to that I read almost cover to cover every month is The Sun. This month there is an interview with Stan Goff who spent 24 years in the U.S. military. He says, "...we are entering a period of extreme instability in this country: economic, political, and otherwise. Something's got to be on the other side of that. If we want a world in which our grandchildren can grow up safely, then we'd better be engaged. Our actions will determine what we leave to the next generation. It's not a choice; it's a duty."

Four More Wars! Billionaires for Bush raises its martini glasses to President Bush‚s victory in the 2004 election! In the words of our illustrious CEO, Phil T. Rich, "We paid for eight years." With the help of an estimated 1 million spoiled and purged votes, which our obedient media institutions ignored as a "minor problem", we're looking forward to four more years of war profiteering, corporate welfare, secret energy policy meetings, pollution exemptions, no-bid contracts and White House sleepovers.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright. The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light. And, somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout,

but there is no joy in Mudville -- mighty Casey has struck out.

Don't Forget to VOTE TODAY if you haven't already voted

From Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball:
As we conclude this amazing election campaign, we have just one question for our readers: When has an incumbent candidate ever won when he is tied with his challenger on election eve? The answer is never--at least in the age of polling that began in the 1930s. So George W. Bush needs to beat history, and the polls, to win the election tomorrow. It is possible that the vagaries of the Electoral College will enable Bush to eke out a victory, and it is also possible that the Republican Party's get out the vote effort will equal or exceed the Democrats' GOTV efforts. But if the Democrats are even half-right about the potential of their GOTV in producing additional new voters, then Kerry will win, perhaps more comfortably than anyone now suspects.

Following are just a couple of the many items of interest coming from Amy Goodman's, Democracy Now show today.

...the supervisor of elections in Leon County in Florida, told the Washington Post, "In my 16 years as an election administrator, I've never seen anything like this." ....In Pittsburgh, fliers were handed out on what looked like county letterhead that claimed voting had been extended an extra day "due to immense voter turnout expected on Tuesday." The fliers said Republicans should vote on Tuesday and Democrats should vote on Wednesday. ....In Wisconsin fliers purportedly from the a group calling itself the "Milwaukee Black Voters League" told voters, "If you've already voted in any election this year, you can't vote in the presidential election, If you violate any of these laws, you can get ten years in prison and your children will get taken away from you."

Electoral Vote Predictor 2004:
  Kerry 283   Bush 246

From Daily Kos:
Bush is stuck at somewhere between 47 and 48 percent in the polling, 47 in Democracy Corps poll, but near 48 percent, that's an average of the public polls, and for an incumbent candidate, as we know, that puts him in a very, very endangered position in terms of his re-election.

In a new video, Osama bin Laden says Americans' security does not depend on the president they elect, but on U.S. policy. "Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or al Qaeda."

John Kerry is going to be the next president of the United States. If you need a pep talk go to Talking Points Memo by Josh Marshall.
