I have been very hesitant to get into the US elections this year. I simply don't have the energy I had in 04'. And denouncing Obama seems much more difficult than Kerry. Third party politics are a fading dream and I am ready to wake up. I guess my motto is:
I don't believe in lies, and American Democracy is the biggest lie out there.
But like any junkie worth is addiction, I am sure I will find some excuse to write a few blog posts about why and how Obama is not the answer for the American Left. In the meantime, I think the DNC and RNC should be interesting, for one reason, Rage Against the Machine is making an appearnce with my old buddy Ralph. Good to see that some people still support him. And the names on the list are some of my heroes:
Next Wednesday, Denver is going to be rockin.
Thousands will be gathered at the University of Denver Magness Arena to protest the corporate lockdown on the Presidential debates.
Sean Penn, Val Kilmer, Cindy Sheehan, Tom Morello, Jello Biafra and others will join Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez.
Demanding an end to the corporate control over the Presidential debates.
So, if there is any chance you can get to Denver Wednesday, you can make a donation to reserve your ticket here.
If you can't get to Denver, no problem.
Free Speech TV will be streaming the event live on the Internet. (Wednesday, August 27, 7 p.m. Mountain time, 9 p.m. Eastern.)
