Led Black | Posted 12.22.2012 | Latino Voices

On November 6th we have to not only come out to vote but we must pour forth in a deluge of biblical proportions. We must speak loud and clear, we must roar and we must claim our due. We must tell the world, the GOP, the Tea Party, that this is our country too.

For millions of Americans pets play an important role in everyday life but politically they're invisible. Sooner or later some aspiring office seeker will realize that a bonanza of support is waiting for the person who finds a way to bring our furry friends into the election narrative.

With Republicans' schemes to cheat and deny voters their right to vote, little has been done to punish or prevent future acts. And their antics will have a far reaching and chilling effect on our democracy, if not stopped.

The president fired up the Democratic troops last night. Now it is up to the troops to deliver. In the battleground states, we have to not only do the crucial mechanics of turning out the vote, we have to fire our people up and get them motivated.

This year's debates were just like they always were, but for some reason I expected something different. Debates offer the candidates a rare opportunity, one outside of the arena of platitudes and skewed facts in advertising, to directly make their case to undecided voters.

Will this win for the President change the trajectory of the election? YES. Not just because it appears to have swayed some of the ubiquitous Undecideds, but because, at this point, we're now done pandering to them.

Most elections get billed as the most important in a generation, but with America teetering on a fiscal cliff in an era of profound climate change, this one really is. And, in Obama's own words: "Only you have the power to move us forward."

Brandon Hill

There is a great American irony here. Why is it that in the world's epicenter of democracy, we have for the past two centuries spilled so much blood, shed so many tears, and spent so much time debating which Americans should and should not get the right to vote?

The Mis-Education of the Negro Pastors Urging Congregants Not to Vote

Reverend Charles E. Williams II | Posted 12.20.2012 | Black Voices
Reverend Charles E. Williams II

The fact is neither party truly cares about Christian morality, certainly not based on Old Testament scriptures. What seems instead to be driving both is power and control. Republicans care about power and control for the wealthy, while Democrats care about power and control for the not-so-wealthy.

As election season winds to a close, candidates from all sides are still making their final promises about what they want America to be.

There's still time to get involved in this year's election and there's never been a better, or more important time to do so. Remember, if you don't vote, you don't get to complain, but you are also doing an injustice for all U.S. women who for so long couldn't.
