get out the: vote, rems, filibuster, fix; now!
Actually, `the fix is in' in Congress, the filibuster is just the show behind which dempublicans ask how far when remocrats tell them to bend over; we have to get the vote out and get the fix out of Congress- by getting rid of the filibuster, etc.. I've said it in the past, as well, dempublicans are the glove, the puppets, remocrats are the hand, the puppet masters; a dem is a rem whose still haggling over price, when they get it they become rems; if we wanted you to make sausage we wouldn't have voted you into Congress; they almost sunk this country and the global economy with King George and his Dick Cheney's insistence on "bipartisanship", etc., we don't need to finish the job, we need to get the rems out of office, so they can't do much more damage; etc.. Yet, we must give the dems the credit that's due them, and, even though they did practice some politics as usual, they've done a lot; and will do much more- if we get the vote out, get the rems out of office, and then get the filibuster out, as well, for starters. The non-rems deserve another shot, let's get the vote out, for:
Talk the talk, walk the walk, and even
Be the be, but, if you don't vote the vote,
You'll never be livin' in a democracy!
Only then can racial inequality, poverty, etc., truly be dealt with. Thanx. Goodbye.

Know Your Rights
If you are an eligible voter, you have the following rights:
If your name is not on the official voter list but you believe you are eligible to vote in that precinct, even if an election official challenges your vote, you have the right to cast a provisional ballot.
If you are in line when the polls close, you are entitled to vote, no matter how long it takes to get to the booth.
In many states, employers must allow you time to vote at some point during the day. You can't be fired for being late due to long polling lines. Check your personnel policies with your employer.
You have the right to vote without being intimidated by anyone.
Visit the Election Protection website for more information on your rights.
The AAUW Action Fund's Congressional Voting Record for the 111th Congress gives our members and the public critical information about how all members of Congress voted on priority issues.
Because you live in Minnesota, voting couldn't be easier. All you and your friends have to do is show up on Election Day. If you're not registered, you can do that right at your polling place. The stakes this year are simply too great for anyone who cares about the future of this country to stay at home -- and the voting rules in Minnesota make it as easy as possible for you to make sure you can cast your ballot. Voter turnout will be high, so please make a plan about when and how you expect to make it to your polling place -- and talk to at least three friends to make sure they have a plan, too. If you have any questions at all, you can find more information here:
