Yea! The interminable election season is almost over in a few days, (for just a few days), until campaigning begins for the next “most important elections of our lifetimes!” I don’t know about you all, but I am about sick of the circus and will be glad for a break.
This is my prediction for who will “win” this Tuesday: The 1%.
Romney is, of course, a member of the 1% (as is Obama) and Obama has proven to be an able servant of Wall Street, the War Machine, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Monsanto, etc..whoever wins, the 99% will lose.
I am hoping that no matter which candidate is chosen by the elites, that grassroots, localized revolutions begin in earnest. From the time we are toddlers, we are so propagandized in this country to believe that our only opportunity to make change is in the voting booth. That’s the last place true, positive and relevant change (for us) actually takes place. The massive problems and challenges that we face as a nation and as a world will be solved in the streets, not in the voting booth.
Having said that, I think that if you really must vote, I encourage people to either vote for antiwar candidates in 3rd parties or independents OR go vote for down ballot items and leave the presidential bubble empty if you don’t have a candidate to vote for that meets your own principles.
In California, Colorado or Florida, there is the opportunity to vote for me and Roseanne Barr (Peace and Freedom Party), or we are qualified write-in candidates in over 20 more states.

Like I said, the 1% will be victorious on Tuesday, but we can register our abhorrence with the system.
Love, Peace & Freedom,
