      The FBI gathered a huge file on Kavanaugh through its tip line & handed it with a bow to Don McGahn at the White House. It then became an oppo file to control Kavanaugh. Who has that file today? Surely Donald Trump has a copy. McGahn likely too. https://t.co/0kfJBOsveh — Wouter van der Horst (@DerWouter) … Continue reading Of course they do

“Write-in” laws per state

We don’t want to tell anyone how to vote.  But if you still want to vote for Hillary for president, you can do it in some states.  The site mfoster.com, has a list of write in rules per state.  Check it carefully to make sure your state qualifies.  There are three rules that may present an obstacle:

Rule 1 – Write-in votes will not be counted if the candidate does not file as a write-in candidate.

Rule 2 – Write-in candidates are not allowed in presidential elections.

Rule 3 – A candidate losing the primary cannot file as a write-in candidate in the general election.

My state, New Jersey, does not follow any of these rules, so I will be able to write in Hillary’s name this fall.  Just to make absolutely sure, I will follow up with my local board of elections.  Clip and save.

Matt has another edition of his radio show on tonight at 11:00PM EST.  Tune into blogtalkradio for My Two Cents. Preview: Tonight’s show will respond to the DEATH of Democracy! Reactions: To President Clinton’s speech, and Barack Obama’s speech. Also, a discussion on the un-democratic “roll-call vote”!!!

Special Guests: The Honorable David James Manning, and Denver Group founders Heidi Li Feldman and Marc Rubin!!! Whoa!  Way to go Matt.  Those are good “gets”.

And now for something beautiful.  We’ve all been a little shell shocked in the past couple of days and sometimes we forget that there truly are moments of transcendence.  Here is a lovely example.  Enjoy!
