Democracy InAction... the last one I promise











It's election day. Yep tomorrow it'll all be over (hopefully) and we can get back to dancing with the stars. But for today decisions must be made. Votes must be cast and lines must be stood upon.

We're not going to discuss uninteresting details about the polling data around knox county, I'm sure most of you can decipher the general tone of the East Tennessee Electorate without alot of help form me.

But I am highly supportive of the independent candidates who want to make a statement. So as a public service I am going to list the name, party, and link to the website of each third party candidate that is on the ballot for president this year. Just in case the two big boys don't suit your fancy.

But first there is an issue very important to me on the ballot that I did not mention in my Democracy InAction posts. Today we are voting on allowing liquor by the drink sales in Knox County. Please, the Pol needs to be able to get a Strawberry Daiquiri anywhere in this county. Please vote to allow him to be able to frequent our outlying Chili's and Outback Steakhouses.

But now for the Third Party Candidates, who knows you may just find someone you want to vote for.

1.Chuck Baldwin

Constitutional party - issues

2. Bob Barr

Libertarian - issues

3. Charles Jay

Personal choice party??

4. Cynthia McKinney

Green Party - issues

5. Brian Moore

Socialist Party - issues

6. Ralph Nader

Independent - issues

Hopefully this might be a help to some, and at least intereting to others.

Please vote and if you need to know where... go here.

ahh, the last vestiges of the Prohibition are being swept away... 75 years after it was abolished.

God bless you, Pol. Who chooses our president? The mass media, by ignoring the TRUE agents of change. Go Bob Barr!

Liquor by the drink? I didn't see that on my ballot.

Good thing, too, because alcohol is the Devil.
