Why the Blue States should Divorce the Red States

C. B. Shapiro (Re-post) | ...they would finally be free to have the kind of society they've always wanted; church and state can be fused so they build the kind of theocracy they've dreamt of, with Jesus at the helm. (They) can ban books, repeal civil rights, persecute gays and have all the wars they like. They want prayer in schools? More power to them. We'll be free to live with our like-minded countrymen who believe in science, modernism, tolerance, religion as a personal choice, and truly want limited government intrusion in our personal lives. Why should each side be driven mad by the other any more, decade after decade? more...  12 Comments

Greens: Kerry Betrayed Pledge to Count Every Vote

Mark Dunlea | "Mr. Kerry wanted to avoid a repeat of the 2000 Florida debacle, but in conceding quickly he broke his promise to make sure every vote was counted," said Ben Manski, Wisconsin Green and co-founder of the No Stolen Elections! campaign. "The widespread reports of election tampering, voting machine breakdowns, intimidated and blocked voters, electioneering phone calls that spread misinformation, and voters misidentified as felons made it necessary in 2004 to count and verify every vote and make sure the election wasn't compromised. Regardless of whether Democrats retreat, Greens demand that every vote be counted." more...  4 Comments
