The Homeless Vote


Bob Dylan~ Like a Rolling Stone

Of all the voters whose voices need to be heard, here is a demographic group we don't much hear MSM cover- the homeless. Lots of people wind up homeless because of medical expenses. So many families in the US are just a paycheck or two from homelessness, and they are the ones who have most at stake. It's not a case of "when you got nothin' you 've got nothin' to lose". Those voters who have been abused and neglected by the Bush administration, have a real stake in these elections. Too many people have been left with 'no direction home'-- while the corporations are getting billions in Corporate Welfare. Law students hit the streets to help the homeless get registered to vote.

What a great idea. There is a 3 day gathering of homeless people this week in our metro area. I'm going to suggest that they register voters. Hope it is not too late to get started.

The how-to manual is online. Thanks, Fran.

GREAT WORK B.E.~WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT NATIONWIDE, IF THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET VOTERS REGISTERED, EMPOWER THESE FOLKS. IT HAS TO BE A RAY OF HOPE - BECAUSE LOTS OF FOLKS THINK THEY ARE NOT ELIGIBLE. THEY COULD TURN OUT TO BE THE DECIDING FACTOR IF IT IS A CLOSE ELECTION. IF ANYTHING TO HAVE A VOICE & BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IS IMPORTANT. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!
