MPR News: Primary 2014 Results
Not unlike every single election I have ever taken part in, I voted for the candidate with the best name. A name that stood out this primary was Tom Books. If Tom Books is your name you are definitely going to get the intellectual vote.
Aside from that, I knew not the stance of the candidate I was voting for, nor what they thought about high tuition, Sunday Sales Laws, and or equality. On a whim I voted for Doug Mann, and surprisingly against Phyllis Khan. I took the opportunity to vote Independent party all the way down because Republicans just fund wars and Democrats pretend to be against wars and fund them as well. It felt good to vote against an incumbent that hadn’t done much for me (noticeably).
Candidates should be more transparent, and have better names.
All in all my vote was cast and counted, and it felt good! Go Vote!

Bowing to AIPAC, Senate unanimously passes resolution supporting Israel
“The Senate yesterday unanimously passed a resolution backed by the Israel lobby group AIPAC expressing support for Israel’s attack on Gaza and saying not a word about Palestinian deaths.”
Why do we fund oversea wars when students incur debt locally? Politicians pay for this sort of activity with our tax dollars. What does Al Franken say about the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians?
