Trick or Treat?

I moved in September. Determined to have my vote in this crucial election, I filled in my voter registration along with my drivers license forms and submitted both at the DMV back on Sept.25th. Last week, I wondered why I hadn't gotten a voting card or information on where to vote. I went online and then called -- only to discover they never processed my application!

Worse yet, the registration deadline was 12 hours before I checked (a full 2 weeks before the election). There is no way to research to find out where my paperwork went or what went wrong, and I have no recourse.

If I'd realized I had such an early deadline I'd certainly have checked it sooner. So now I can't vote in this crucial election

The claim is that the DMV didn't send in my forms, but in this election climate you have to wonder how many others registering as Independent voters had a similar experience. 

Anyway, I decided to contribute to the election to make my voice heard. The League of Conservation Voters supports causes related to climate change and the environment and will triple donations made though Nov.2. I hope you'll join me in combatting the dirty tricks of this election with a donation treat to the LCV.

What can we do about Sandy?

With Sandy bearing down on the East Coast in reprise of last year's Irene, the presidential candidates are paying heed enough to suspend campaigning. What we really need is candidates for all our political offices to pay heed not just to this one storm but to climate change and all its terrible ramifications.

Climate change is real, and it is affecting our nation and our world. It's time the naysayers drop their outdated rhetoric and pay attention to the facts that affect us all.

Learn more from trained scientists who have the expertise to know what they're talking about, and do what you can to reduce your personal and our national toll on the atmosphere we all share.

It's our earth, and our leaders need to take responsibility for cleaning up our national impact on the environment. It's not too late to elect those who will have a positive influence

Who should you vote for?

History is a record of the power points of the past. Historic presidential campaigns are a record of the leaders' calls to stimulate people to move toward a united target, a destiny to manifest. Recall JFK asking us what we could do for our country; remember Johnson leading the drive to forge a Great Society.

Since then it's all been trickle down. Instead of holding our guiding light up to lead the way forward, we've dimmed its brightness with repetitious Middle East forays and covert Latin and South American interference and submission to multinational corporate manipulation.

Our country's role in international progress has been reflected in our nation's leadership. America has become mired in its history and the centuries-old language of our founding documents; we've forgotten that progress is only possible with change.

What we need now is not a presidential candidate who promises to take us back to old glory days, because what was forward-moving and inspiring in the past is just history now. What we need is a candidate who has the vision to see a new world and can help us imagine the better life we'll have by working together to make it happen.

Today changes as rapidly as the speed of global communication. The world has become a complex interactive network. When we think we can become more than we were, possibilities grow like synaptic synthesis.

It's time to unite in a vision of vibrant growth, to challenge the people to become more than we are, to foster innovation, to be willing to invest in the future with an infrastructure that can support explosive growth. We need a president who champions the power of the people and dreams of equity in opportunity and commits to ensuring equal access to fundamental human rights, freedom of personal choice, justice for every accused, and a nation that doesn't just fulfill its goals but continually expands its potential.

Each American voter has the responsibility to elect leaders who envision the future we yearn to live.
