Final stretch (redux)

I know that most of you visit Cyndy so what follows is not new.

She recently highlighted the following post from Science and Politics. I can't tell you how strongly this resonates with my thoughts (yes, even though I criticize Kerry for his educational policies. I love the guy even though he's bought into the corporate/conservative frame.).

I'm highlighting the same message Cyndy has found, however repetitive. The following should be foremost in all of our minds come November 2nd.
Many born-and-raised American still do not understand that this election is not your regular, run-of-the-mill contest between Republicans and Democrats. As someone born and raised elsewhere, I can probably see it much more clearly.

This is a life-and-death battle between the Democratic party and the Un-Democratic party, between Enlightement and Inquisition, between modernism and medievalism, between 21st century and 16th century worldviews, between democracy and theocracy, between a democratic party and a crypto-fascist party. This is not one of those once-in-four-years fun events.

This is an armageddon struggle for the survival of civilization, not just in the USA, but in the world. The GOP today is not the GOP you remember from the 1970s. The GOP today has been hijacked by a dozen traitors of humanity, and you still don't see it!? Act now, before it is too late.
Unfortunately, we live in a rarified atmosphere. We are the elite when it comes to information. And that is not good for this election in the sense that much of what we read about should be front page news or featured on TV. But it's not.

Should the worst comes to pass, will we regret our actions these last few days? I hope we don't.
