Special Announcement: 2008 is Just the Beginning

Dandelion Salad

Note from Manila Ryce, The Largest Minority:

The announcement comes at 2:37 in the video. Democrats might be particularly interested since it’s something they’ve claimed they wanted Ralph to do rather than run in the previous elections.

Want to see Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader in the debates? Here’s what you can do about it:

Call Barack Obama at 866-675-2008.
Hit 6 to speak with a campaign volunteer and insist that Ralph Nader and other ballot qualified third party candidates be included in the upcoming Presidential debates.

Then, e-mail the executive director of the Commission on Presidential Debates Janet Brown at jb@debates.org
Tell her to end the exclusionary restrictions and allow Ralph into the debates.

Denver is a complete police state by Manila Ryce

Not much time to blog folks, so please excuse my brief description of a complex situation.

Denver is a complete police state, and I say that without exaggeration. The sheer number of law enforcement officers is easily more than the amount of protesters. Due to the outright promise that protesters in Denver will be beaten, arrested, and locked up in a Gitmo-style warehouse, the numbers aren’t as large as expected. However, there seems to be a strong group of Anarchists who refuse to be intimidated.

Today we demonstrated on a blocked off route, but soon moved into streets which weren’t designated areas. We completely stopped traffic as we moved between honking cars and dance in intersections. Giving credit where credit is due, the police were actually pretty tolerant until we started blocking streets near the capitol building. Officers in riot gear, holding their batons and rubber bullet guns, moved in on us. Two people were singled out and arrested but we stood our ground.

An Appeal to Open the Debates by Manila Ryce

This is more a Call to Action than a typical commentary.

We need your video responses, even if you have nothing to say other than “I support open debates”! That’s fine. Anything is better than silence.

We also need to write Google, Obama, and McCain expressing our demand for Nader to be in the debate, along with any other candidate who reaches 5 percent or more in the polls. Pressure Obama not to slink away from a debate which promises to be more democratic than the CPD debates. Call him out on this one.

Below are the three entities for you to contact followed by part of a long-winded article which continues on my website.

Google, Inc.
Ginny Hunt – Google Elections Program Manager
Eric Schmidt – Google CEO
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043
(650) 253-0000 Obama Campaign:

Obama for America
P.O. Box 8102
Chicago, IL 60680
(866) 675-2008 McCain Campaign:

John McCain 2008
P.O. Box 16118
Arlington, VA 22215
(703) 418-2008

Google is scheduled to hold a debate independent of the corporate Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). This is possibly our one and only chance to get Obama and McCain to debate Ralph Nader and any other third-party or independent candidate running for the presidency. We must pressure Google to lower their requirements to 5% before this opportunity is lost. While using exclusionary tactics to silence opposition, these two major parties seem to think that freedom, a term they both speak highly of, means having power for yourself at the expense of others.

In 1992, independent candidate Ross Perot, who was polling at 7-9 percent, was included in the debates at the request of George H.W. Bush, who made Perot’s inclusion a precondition for his own participation. Under current CPD requirements of 15 percent, Perot wouldn’t have been admitted today.

In 1996, Bob Dole proposed that if Perot were kept out of the debates he would allow the Clinton campaign to decide the terms of the event. Clinton agreed. George Stephanopolous, senior advisor to Clinton at the time, took pride in the undemocratic deal between the two candidates, explaining: “As long as we would agree to Perot not being in it, we could get everything else we wanted going in. We got our time frame, we got…”

Colbert Interviews Libertarian Presidential Candidate Bob Barr

Stephen is dead on with his characterization of the comically out of touch Libertarian Party, and even goes on to expose why even Libertarian candidate Bob Barr is a shitty libertarian… though from my experience most Libertarians are shitty libertarians. You’ve gotta love the audacity of a man who says people should vote Libertarian because the Republican/Democratic monopoly has ruined this country with bills like the ones he’s voted for.
