How to Vote in Primaries and Not Be an Idiot

A Short Instructions Manual
By David Swanson

1. Virtually nobody votes in primaries (or caucuses) compared to general elections. Therefore, each individual primary vote is worth many times what it is in the general election. And, it's more likely to be counted, since there's typically less fraud and abuse of the system in primaries. So, if you vote in general elections, you pretty much have to vote in primaries in order to not be an idiot. Bring a few friends to vote too, and you're practically a genius.

Bush Defines Himself as Threat to World

By David Swanson

In the face of a new NIE that shatters his and Cheney's lies about Iranian nukes, Bush is now claiming that just knowing how to make a bomb is a danger to the world that could justify an illegal war and even the USE of the bomb. This insanity fits perfectly with the bill now making its way through the Senate that would make the promotion of belief systems that could lead to "violence or force" punishable by McCarthyite commission hearings and fear mongering. (HR 1955 already passed the House with almost the same majority that the Enabling Act passed in Germany in 1933.)

Enough Heroes to Fill a Book

Kucinich on What He'd Do

If you were elected president, what do you think would be the first thing you would do in office?

Cancel NAFTA, get out of the WTO. Bring our troops home. Reintroduce legislation for a not-for-profit health care system and for fully paid two- and four-year college for every American young person. Put in motion legislation to create a full employment economy. I want to create jobs, that's what I want to do. I want to get people back to work and get them in health care, make sure their children have education. This is fundamental.


The Two Biggest Public Secrets, and How Bush Just Signing Statemented Iraq

By David Swanson

As noted by the uniquely vigilant Charlie Savage in the Boston Globe, President Bush in November issued a signing statement unconstitutionally overturning 10 sections of H.R. 3222, the "Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2008." Among the little technical details Bush just erased was the requirement that he not take funds appropriated to the Pentagon for one thing and use them for something else.
