What If?

The folks at boston.com have cooked up a great "What If?" machine. It lets you move markers on demographic charts to see how turnout and voting preferences to predict how the 2008 Presidential race will turn out.




Amazing thing: check out the map above. If everyone based on race, gender, and religion turned out in the same percentages and voted for the same party as in 2006, Sen Barak Obama (D-IL) wins -- 370 - 168 in the Electoral College. (boston.com)

No matter who wins, the US loses.
John McCain has made it clear that if he is elected he will help Israel attack Iran. See the future consequences of this in the fascinating new historical novel “Clash of the Gods” which is now on www.amazon.com and www.clashofthegods.com. Sarah Palin, of course, is an Evangelical who thinks we have to destroy all the ‘infidels’ in the Middle East to make way for the Second Coming.
Meanwhile, Obama not only wants to create a socialist welfare state in the US, but according to his website he wants to create a global one --- with US taxpayer dollars.

Dear Blogger!

We would like to extend you and your readers a special offer to see our upcoming production, Citizen Josh: The Quixotic Adventures of an Unlikely Activist. If you would, please post this in your blog. We feel that this show will have a particular interest to you and your readers because of its strong grassroots activism and political themes. It is a witty show that weaves autobiographical tales into a personal quest to examine and engage the fundamentals of democracy.

One-Man Sensation
CITIZEN JOSH
a Jonathan Reinis Production
written and performed by Josh Kornbluth
in collaboration with director David Dower

October 9 through 26, 2008 in Crystal City

“Beautifully staged…It’s smart. It’s very funny. It’s another highly entertaining evening with Kornbluth.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Kornbluth is a writer with great originality and depth and a spell-binding performer. What more can you expect from an evening at the theater?” —New York Daily News

Troubled by the election in 2004 and the health of American democracy, Josh Kornbluth (author of Red Diaper Baby) came to the conclusion that perhaps voting is just not enough. As a result of his distress, Kornbluth created this smart and funny exploration of active citizen participation. Just in time for election season, Citizen Josh weaves a web of entertaining and moving autobiographical tales into a personal quest to examine and engage the fundamentals of democracy. Kornbluth last produced Love & Taxes at Arena and continues his long-time association with our own Producing Artistic Associate, David Dower. So before you cast your ballot on November 4th, consider one last perspective from an irreverent, side-splitting and powerful citizen.
