Notes 11/7/2008

"Who would for gain his country sell, deserves the lowest place in hell, Van Buren."
-smear that president.

-List of parties that ran this election.
-Democratic, South Carolina United Citizens, New York Working Families (Barack Obama); Republican, New York Independence, New York Conservative (John McCain); Constitution, Alaskan Independence Party, Kansas Reform, Independent Greens of Virginia (Chuck Baldwin); Libertarian (Bob Barr); Green (Cynthia McKinney); Independent, Independence-Ecology, Peace and Freedon, Michigan Natural Law, Delaware Independent, Oregon Peace, New York Populist (Ralph Nader); Prohibition (Gene Amondson); Socialist Workers (Roger Calero); Boston Tea Party (Charles Jay); Independent, America's Independent (Alan Keyes); Socialism & Liberation (Gloria La Riva); Socialist, Vermont Liberty Union Mississippi Natural Law Party (Brian Moore); Objectivist (Thomas Stevens);

-Freddy Fender born Baldemar Huerta. He is a hero to South Texas. I really like the amount of respect he gets on the comments of his youtube videos. It is unprecedented. His praise originates more in response to his character as a genuine man than to his music or live performances. The agreement on his transcendence seems universal.
-Proposition 2 in California passed with 63%.
-Gary Francione-known for animal rights, specifically (1) the property statues of animals, (2) the differences between animal rights and animal welfare, and (3) a theory of animal rights based on sentience alone, rather than on any particular characteristics.
