This morning I woke up thinking politics (hard not to do these days). It is just so horribly frightening to think of the message that will be sent if we, the American people, sanction another four years of the Bush regime. Alex is thinking along the same lines. Hod sent me a link to Votergate, his friend’s documentary on the voting machine scandal. It’s getting some good buzz around the web. The website sums it up thus:
Votergate is the investigative documentary feature film uncovering the truth about new computer voting systems, which allow a few powerful corporations to record our votes in secret. But Votergate is not just a warning. The film strongly concludes that elections are harder to defraud when voters turn out in big numbers.
The moral of the story being, vote! (and wouldn’t it be nice if TC gave us election day off, to encourage people to do so, like the freakin’ rest of Columbia?) And maybe it won’t be politics as usual.
Update: if all of this has got you feeling down, play the Give Bush a Brain Game. It’s a riot! One good thing in all this is the outpouring from the artistic community in recent months. 🙂
