As you consider whether you will go out in the last 10 minutes before the polls close to get that one last voter, remember what happened because we fell 550 votes short in Florida in 2000. Those 550 votes had enormous, historic consequences.

November 6 is about more than one candidate or one ballot measure or even one outcome. It's about every eligible citizen taking responsibility for the power they've been given and using it. It's about making our voices heard. It's about more than ourselves.

Dear America, Please Don't Fall for This Shit Again

Objections to Obama are nonsense and lies at best. This isn't a "liberal" POV. It's just the truth. Obama does have real failings as a president, but being a socialist big spender is not remotely one of them.

Whoever wins in whatever combination -- presidency, Senate, House -- will face a country divided over whether to raise taxes and in what way; over how to distribute and control health care; over how to put together a deal to address long-term debt.

Sunday Roundup

This week, Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, leaving devastation in its wake -- and a long cleanup ahead. One of the things blown away by the superstorm was our ability to continue to willfully ignore the issues of climate change and disaster preparedness -- especially given our fast-deteriorating infrastructure. Though the presidential candidates might have largely ignored these problems, Sandy's storm surge swept them to the forefront of the campaign -- and the national conversation. Now that we're talking about them, the question becomes: will we actually do what's needed to ready ourselves for the next disaster -- or will we dry ourselves off, recharge our devices, and bury our heads back in the sand (after we rebuild the sand pile, of course)? Hopefully, Tuesday's election will be the last one that happens without a substantive debate on these issues. In the meantime, here is how you can help those who are still desperately in need.

What will get me to my polling place this year, more than anything else, is this: I believe Barack Obama will nominate Supreme Court Justices who will vote to overturn Citizens United, which wiped out reasonable limits on campaign funding. And Mitt Romney would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would uphold it.

The United States is the world's most famous democracy, yet we rank near the bottom of all nations in voter turnout. So why, when U.S. Census data says most Americans don't vote because it's inconvenient, do we vote on Tuesday smack in the middle of the week?
