With early voting in place in 37 states and the debates often devolving into little more than just stump speeches these days, do we even need a third debate? Everyone always says in politics, a month is a long time to go, but in this day and age of constant streaming information, haven't they already said pretty much everything they could say (over and over and over) again?

The debates should be the only part of the election that is given mass media attention, as it is the only moment during the entire election that a candidate, no matter what his supposed "party affiliation", can stand up and speak for himself, under the scrutiny of the moderator, audience, media, and citizenship. The rest of the candidacy is always a joke, a circus performance, 99.999% of the time insulting to intelligence and critically demoralizing. I believe candidates should be forced to run under relative obscurity while their history, stated politics, and written answers to contemporary issues are placed under public scrutiny, and then allowed to debate the two months leading up to election. The rest of it is bipartisan bullshit that less people actually care about than represented in the language in which people discuss politics. Like any cliche, bipartisan thinking only serves as a short cut towards a point lost in the noise of too many televised entertainments. Nobody really believes it, even when they think they do.

Amy goodman of Democracy now is arrested

Spain Link: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=oYjyvkR0bGQ

This is how the Media refocuses the abuse of an honest reporter:


Spain Link: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=xkI-xCSoq3A

Info: First of all, not only was Amy Goodman one of the reporters to cover the story of the FISA law. Not only was Amy the exact author who drew attention to the terrible practices of the Guantanamo prison ..

But now she was arrested on the job. She was at the rally, to cover a story about some people who were rallying and trying to get Obama to accept a letter ..

And ..every one of them were arrested. She was not only treated like a common criminal, but because she was one of the few reporters to cover this story, she was put in jail.

And the very people who support Obama ..Castleclear ..You pointed out her link ..then you said you would vote for Obama ..and now that Amy goodman is arrested ...for not even protesting against Obama ...but trying to cover a story, she is stuck arguing with this "Heidi" and trying to defend not just people, but the religion of Islam...

Let me summarize this:

Amy goodman ..an american reporter who has been put through abuse by our own police system ..has to defend Heidi over the fact that Heidi ..is calling all Muslim's terrorists ..And Heidi's response is that not all Muslims ..are terrorists ..BUT the religion they believe in is dangerous?

Did Heidi Not insult Christianity already?

I believe Heidi has insulted Christianity ..in so many ways. Especially in calling suicides of any sort an attack on our American freedom.

What freedom?


Detail: This last link is a petition site ..
