Daily Voting News For November 6, 2007

Daily Voting News For November 6, 2007


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

Today seems to be a typical odd-year election day so far. Problems are reported throughout the nation though the media. Of course no reasons are given for problems except in a few occasions the errors are “human error”; they are never the machines fault or the vendors fault. Marion Co Indiana has been the “poster child” for failed elections and it seems that this election is no different.

    Keith Rankin: Science, Scientists, And Scientism
    Science, in the not-so-recent-past, has often had a bad press. It's been personified, particularly by the political left, as Frankenstein, as agents of capitalism, classical liberalism, colonialism, sexism (yang over yin), eugenics, and god-like pretension. More recently though, in the zeitgeists of climate change awareness and covid, it's had an unusually good press; although we retain this persistent worry that viruses such as SARS-Cov2 may be the unwitting or witting result of the work of careless or evil scientists...

    Dunne Speaks: Can ACT's Dream Run Continue?

    By most reckonings the ACT Party has had a very successful political year. Not only has its expanded Parliamentary team settled in well to its work, without controversy or scandal, but its leader has gained in community respect, and the party’s support, at least according to the public opinion polls, has increased sharply...

    Keith Rankin: Basic Universal Income And Economic Rights

    Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

    When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
    He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

    Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
    If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>
