If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

The Computer Ate My Vote: National Day of Action
A press conference/rally will be held in Austin, TX, on Tuesday, July 13, in conjunction with the nationwide "Computer Ate My Vote" Day of Action. Many Texas Counties will be using computerized voting machines in the November 2004 election. Again and again similar machines across the country have demonstrated serious flaws in recording and tabulating citizens’ votes. A national coalition of groups including Common Cause, MoveOn.org, TrueMajority.org, Democracy for America, Working Assets, VerifiedVoting.org, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility is encouraging election officials to use their influence to strongly request computerized voting machines produce paper records which can be kept for audits and dispute resolutions.

The Longer View
The trouble with reporting on shady political schemes is that they usually can't be proven. You need a Deep Throat, or, at least, a Gary Sick.
