TRUTHOUT: The Steal Back Your Vote campaign

In the immortal words of Howard Zinn, you can’t be neutral on a moving train. This mantra has meaning in all things that we do, but it gains a particular resonance when considered within the framework of American society today. With that in mind, I bring to your attention the work of Greg Palast. Palast is an investigative reporter who first came to my attention following the 2000 presidential election when he was out in front investigating the vote fraud and disenfranchisement in Florida.

Most recently, he partnered with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to create a visually-stimulating guide for American citizens to help us fully realize our suffrage. They also partnered on an investigative piece that is published in this month’s Rolling Stone and it is free on the web.

Their research will anger you and (hopefully) inspire you. Regardless, it is definitely worth taking a look at this information. After all, as Palast and Kennedy put it, your vote has already been stolen from you. Your only defense is to steal it back.

More to follow on knowing and protecting your rights at the polls on November 4. Stay tuned!
