[Nettime-bold] f*ck the Republicans: VOte on Nov 5th and 6th...

Just a reminder... f!ck artworld "new agey" bullsh*t and actually do 

the elections are just around the corner.

Do you really want a war?

Do you really like Bush Jr.?

Do you really want a f*cked up world indebted to oil?

yes, the voiting system is f*cked up, but the basic thing is to at 
least try - it's not alot of time, and it does have an impact.... in 
one way or another...

ps, below is one reminder why you should vote....
Jeb Crow?

There they go again.
Today's exclusive by investigative reporter Greg Palast:

Florida moves to bar 91,000 legal voters -  mostly Democrats - from
Tuesday poll

  From the article:

In December 2000, we reported that Florida's use of a faulty and
politically questionable list of felons and dead people "scrubbed"
from voter rolls -- half of them African-Americans -- may have cost
Al Gore the 537-vote margin of victory claimed by George W. Bush in

Fast-forward two years. There's another close race in Florida. This
time, younger brother Jeb is fighting to fend off a challenge from
Bill McBride for the governor's race. The Nov. 5 face-off could again
come down to thousands, if not hundreds, of votes.

And even though the list has been widely condemned -- the company
that created it admits probable errors -- the same voter scrub list,
with more than 94,000 names on it, is still in operation in Florida.
Moreover, DBT Online, which generated the disastrously flawed list,
reports that if it followed strict criteria to eliminate those
errors, roughly 3,000 names would remain -- and a whopping 91,000
people would have their voting rights restored.

Eventually the list will be fixed, state officials have promised, in
accordance with a settlement with the NAACP in its civil rights suit
against Florida following the 2000 election. But not until the
beginning of next year -- and after Jeb Bush's reelection bid is long
