 @Seeta this is exactly the trend that is being reported everywhere re the Coal guys, the billionaires etc -- at least 3 stories --

 @Seeta Must go viral.  Employers own you.  Own your vote.  Own your thoughts.

 

Hell, no.

Hi, all.  For those who come to comments, here's a great link to a Melissa Harris-Perry video piece on the psychological impacts of voter intimidation/suppression.

 @KayWhitlock We all need to be prepared for insane right wing accusations and possible legal challenges when Obama wins..

 

Their voter id and legal suppression efforts have largely failed so legal will be the pathway now

 

As you know i believe the poling junk and media narratives are in alignment with these voter suppression efforts

 @KayWhitlock This is excellent Kay.  

 

Folks can find voter education materials at Election Protection: http://www.866ourvote.org/pages/voter-education-materials

 

They can also sign up to poll monitor on Election Day -- it doesn't have to be the entire day -- it can be an hour or two.

 @Seeta Hi, seeta!   And although I haven't been a fan of MoveOn.org this season, they are now fundraising for a counter-vote suppression effort in Cleveland and Columbus, OH.  I think I'm in for that one.

 @KayWhitlock wonderful!  I'm investigating what organizations are going to be organizing buses of people in Ohio to poll monitor.  Stay tuned.

We need to be ready for any and all suppression efforts between now and through Election Day

 

Eternal vigilance!
