Election update

As Florida Early Voting Begins, 99% More Latinos Have Already Voted Than In 2012

In the first poll taken Sept. 19-22 — before the "Access Hollywood" video came out — Trump was favored over Clinton by 19 points among all men, a huge advantage for Trump, which reflects the historical advantage Republicans have had with men in presidential elections. But by the late October poll, the results had flipped. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton now leads Trump by 3 points in the same group — a swing of 22 points — roughly equivalent to one in five men ending their support for Trump during the past month.

The poll that shows Clinton leading Trump among Men is completely bogus. Rubbish. If these are the polls you are including in your average of polls you always cite - you're going to be in a for a rude awakening on Nov 8th.

As for Florida, he is leading in early voting so far - which is unusual for a Republican.

Everyone should watch second term Asheville NC Council Member Cecil Bothwell explain why he has already voted for the Jill Stein: "If I could only vote for Clinton or Trump, I wouldn't vote."

As Mr. Bothwell points out, through the new media and those who bring us the truth, we now have proof that the DNC, Clinton campaign and major media stole the primary election for the Democratic Nomination from Bernie Sanders. Crimes in connection with this were committed. "The DNC's betrayal of Bernie Sanders will not fade; we will not forget."

That's the moral hinge on which Bothwell's not voting for Clinton swings: "From my days as an activist, to my days as an investigative reporter and editor, to my current stance as an elected official, I have not countenanced corruption in any form."

"Corruption in the public sphere undermines democracy and it cheats citizens. It allows the demolition of our labor force (through) corrupt trade deals, it permits (locating) of hazardous waste dumps in low-income and non-white neighborhoods, it transfers wealth from the poor and middle to the rich, it destroys public education, and it poisons the planet with both toxic and carbon waste."

"The Clintons are corrupt. No matter the pass given them by the FBI and Justice Department, which are now, also, demonstrably corrupt, no matter that nothing has been made to stick in the corrupt courts, I cannot be persuaded otherwise."

"If I had no other choice I would not vote for Clinton ... (that would be to) cast a vote I cannot ethically justify. On November 9th ... I will look at myself in the mirror and know that I lived up to my best principles."

"Voting for peace, for a diversion of war money to a Green New Deal, for free public college, to vote for a fair tax structure, for fair trade instead of free trade, to vote for meaningful efforts to address climate change, all of that is what I want to see in the world. That's what I cast my vote for."

After Eugene Debs: "I would rather vote for what I want, and not get it, than to vote for what I don't want, and get it."

Enjoy this video - it sums up what this election is really all about!

Cheers, Tom
