moveon_norecall-thumb.jpg If you entered my site last night or today through its top level, you were greeted by my Defend Democracy – VOTE NO RECALL page. It’s not often that I’ll redirect the top-level of my site to something completely different, but that’s how strongly I feel about this recall election.

Jen and I were the 19th and 20th voters casting our ballots at our (Starsucks) polling place first thing this morning. If you’re a California resident, please vote today. Your polling place may not be the same as it normally is, so find your placing place here.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out this eye-opening piece about Schwarzenegger’s connection to Kenneth Lay of Enron infamy and the apparent sabatoge of the governorship and the subsequent plotting of the recall from Arnie’s friends in very high places: “Now, thirty-four pages of internal Enron memoranda have just come through this reporter’s fax machine tell all about the tryst between Maria’s husband and the corporate con men. It turns out that Schwarzenegger knowingly joined the hush-hush encounter as part of a campaign to sabotage a Davis-Bustamante plan to make Enron and other power pirates then ravaging California pay back the $9 billion in illicit profits they carried off.”

(Thanks to both Uncle Michael and Joe V. for passing this along.)

Today’s vote is about more than recalling a perfectly competent governor; it’s about defending democracy as we know it, and staving off big-money corporate back-room deals.

    I think you chickened out and didn’t vote for the best person running… Go Camejo!

    Thanks for the link to voting locations… Too bad we lost….

    And I was kinda hoping he’d use “I’ll be back” in his Too Bad, I Guess I Lost speech…. 😉

    Ben – my friend is from California and he voted absentee for Camejo. He started to regret it when it looked close, but since it was not that close between Schwartzenegger and Bustamante he is glad he did.
