Last night Michael Moore and Rachel Maddow had a spirited and incisive conversation about the Paul campaign’s "mainstreaming of violence," with the celebrated documentarian expressing guarded optimism about Tuesday’s election.
"I’m still hanging on to this belief that when people go in that booth — they’re going to be mad at Obama, they’re going to be mad at the Democrats, you know, things haven’t changed, people still aren’t working, they’ve been out of work for two years, their house is getting foreclosed — but when they’re in that booth and the curtain closes and they look at that Republican name, I think a lot of people are just gonna go, ‘oyyyyy,’ I remember what those eight years were like."
The ballots can be confusing so make sure you’re well informed about all races in your area this Tuesday. That’s where a voter guide can help out. Find a voter guide for your area, which offers details on candidates, locations of polling places, relevant local laws and what your rights are when in case your vote is challenged. You can even create your own guide, if necessary. Find state guides and find out how out to make your own that other people can use at TheBallot.org. It’s surprisingly easy.
