Before I cheer Obama's revival, I look at Philadelphia
However, Philadelphia Mayor Nutter did speak and brag at the Democratic Convention. But what does Nutter have to brag about? Attacking city unions? Fining people for feeding the homeless, fencing in public parks for paid only events, with high priced food and beer and a crime to bring outside food in? What would America's founding fathers think if they were to be told it would be a crime to bring food near where they spoke? Other than individuals, only a third party, the Green party is complaining, though there are a couple of brave members of city council.
Off the subject sort of: Many are complaining the way only Democrats were jailed for appointing campaign contributors to office, the complaining especially intense for Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. Jailed for appointing a contributor to a non-voting commission, but President Obama has pardoning power. So I for one can't just blame Bush and Karl Rove. There is something about the two party system to make each party move in the direction of the other. Somehow I keep thinking of Nutter at the Democratic convention, rather than hoping for a resounding Obama landslide
There was a major attempt to get Philly voting at the moment when suddenly Obama's re-election began to seem a safe bet, and irritating Romney ads disappeared from the TV set. Downtown Philly still has its 1776 horse and buggy streets and in the summer actual ancient horse drawn carriages for the tourists to enjoy. If a cop is watching, woo to the driver who tries to hunk them aside.
Public transit is a must. Even before the Republican onslaught rural Pennsylvania fought against state expenditure for city transit, If much of Philly can't vote because of lack of picture ID, then $5 or $10 transit rides and clogged streets will result.
One Philly Rep., Bob Bradly, is fighting to stop the ID law and helping and urging get people to get their picture ID's,
but there is a strange silence when it comes to Democratic Senator Casey and Rep. Fattah. President Obama is fighting the ID law in other states but not in PA. Green Party VP candidate Cheri Honkala is doing her part and is actually quite inspirational,
I am impressed by Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala. But don't get me wrong; if I lived in Colorado, Florida or Iowa, I would be holding my nose and reluctantly working for Obama,
But I would be somewhat slowly going through the motions. Since Obama is ahead in Pennsylvania by 9 points I can enthusiastic work for the best candidates, and for Philadelphia not to be punished for its extensive public transit system. I wish I could work with Rep. Brady and the Green Party at the same time to cooperate to save Philly.
I urge at least 10 people to join me in picketing Casey, Fattah and even Obama and demand they do more to get people their ID's One days picket will change their website if posting this article doesn't already do it.
I believe that Karl Rove at first pushed Michele Bachmann, then when he didn't finagle her the nomination he sabotaged Newt Gingrich and used Santorum as a decoy to get Romney whose foreign policy may actually be Dick Chaney in disguise, but with Obama's live and let live attitude I doubt if Bernard Madoff would be in jail if he was caught under Obama. He certainly wouldn't be serving any 150 years.
Let's cheer Obama breaking Romney's bubble by making future politics a four way race, Libertarians too. The Libertarian Vice-Presidential candidate is amazing, An ordinary judge, Judge Jim Gray, all of a sudden wanted to legalize drugs back when it was considered a hair-brain idea. He to me is amazing on other issues as well,
The Green and Libertarian Parties by themselves would have to work hard to get a double digit vote, but as part of a united vote “NO to politics as usual” and “YES to new hope” perhaps even 1/4 of the electorate might join in, and the future will never be the same!
There is a modified coke and pepsi can poster for letting the third parties in the debate that can be made into a picture political button at almost any pictures to button stand such as in the Gallery Mall in Philadelphia, it makes an interesting button to excite perhaps more than a fourth of the electorate.
I also made a vote 3rd party when the incumbent leads by more than 6%, button. I hope it posts here, but I have slight computer literacy issues,
An Obama landslide will be business as usual, something like slow decline instead of falling off the cliff. But a heavy 3rd party turnout would start the US back in the right direction.
And to get local for a moment Philadelphia won't be one big traffic jam despite Corbett's efforts and Obama's yawning to the contrary.
Local is what counts, do others have neighborhood or community sites. May have to click on this link to see the pictures of buttons,
