MoveOn is working to bring ordinary people back into politics. With a system that today revolves around big money and big media, most citizens are left out. When it becomes clear that our "representatives" don't represent the public, the foundations of democracy are in peril. MoveOn is a catalyst for a new kind of grassroots involvement, supporting busy but concerned citizens in finding their political voice. Our nationwide network of more than 2,000,000 online activists is one of the most effective and responsive outlets for democratic participation available today.

Music for America is a partisan, political non-profit working to turn out our generation at the polls. By exposing the connection between our cultural lives and politics, we are getting our generation to participate in the political process on all levels - whether that means volunteering for a campaign, organizing a local MfA chapter, or just going to a show and having a conversation with some friends. By throwing some kick-ass parties and concerts all across the country we're building a decentralized movement that encourages our friends to incorporate political participation into their daily lifestyle, and will ultimately bring about lasting, progressive change in this country.

Links Bush in 30 seconds
For the last four years, President Bush's policies have ransacked the environment, put our national security at risk, damaged our economy, and redistributed wealth from the middle class to the very wealthiest Americans. Yet thanks to a complacent media, the President has managed to hide behind a carefully constructed "compassionate" image. As the 2004 election nears, it's crucial that voters understand what President Bush's policies really mean for our country. And to do that, we need creative new ads that clearly show what's at stake.

Al Franken, one of our “savviest satirists” (People), has been studying the rhetoric of the Right. He has listened to their cries of “slander,” “bias,” and even “treason.” He has examined the Bush Administration’s policies of squandering our surplus, ravaging the environment, and alienating the rest of the world. He’s even watched Fox News. A lot.

Links Can I Vote if I'm an ex-con?
HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH Fact Sheet: States That Bar Ex-Offenders from Voting. DO CONVICTED FELONS LOSE THE RIGHT TO VOTE? That depends on the state. According to a Los Angeles Times article ("1 in 7 Black Men are Kept from Voting, Study Finds," 30 January, 1997): About 510,000 black males are permanently disenfranchised because of laws in 13 states that strip convicted felons of the right to vote. Another 950,000 are temporarily ineligible to vote because of laws in other states--including California--that prohibit voting by persons in prison or on probation or on parole, according to [a 1997 Sentencing Project Study]. "While many of these individuals will regain their voting rights after completion of their sentence, the cumulative impact of large numbers of persons being disenfranchised from the electoral process clearly dilutes the political power of the African American community," said Marc Mauer, co-author of "Intended and Unintended Consequences: State Racial Disparities in Imprisonment." He added that one-third of the estimated 4.2 million felons who are disenfranchised are African American, who constitute only 12 percent of the U.S. population.
Links Voters Rights info
The right to vote, and to have one's vote accurately and fairly counted, is as fundamental a right as we have in this country. In 1965, Congress passed the Voting Rights Act, one of the most effective civil rights laws ever enacted. The Act immediately outlawed the worst Jim Crow laws in the South, such as literacy tests and other devices that kept black citizens out of the voting booth. Today, however, the hard won gains of the civil rights movement, and the Voting Rights Act, are in danger of being extinguished. It is now abundantly clear, for instance, that this precious right was repeatedly violated in the much contested Presidential election of 2000. In the state of Florida and at polling booths across the country, flaws in the voting system disproportionately affected people of color, effectively excluding them from the voting process.

Building 7 was the third skyscraper to collapse into rubble on September 11, 2001. According to the government, small fires leveled this building, but fires have never before or since destroyed a steel skyscraper. The team who investigated the collapse were not allowed access to the crime scene. By the time they published their inconclusive report, the evidence had been destroyed. Why did the government rapidly recycle the steel from the largest and most mysterious engineering failure in world history, and why has the media remained silent?
