"Republican" Newspaper May Factor in Election

The Sound Publishing/Recorder company in Western Washington, which specializes in small community newspapers, is getting ready to bring out more election bias. For instance, despite the official entry of Mark Greene in the various 41st legislative district elections, they have chosen only to write about the campaign of a Republican challenger, Steve Litzow, in this early phase. The paper, which was practically an arm of Councilman Reagan Dunn's campaign in 2009, is a de facto Republican newspaper, and can be counted on to be extremely biased in their coverage of elections and editorial content in favor of their corporatist friends, which of course can also mean certain Democrats. The Party of Commons will do our best to let the community know about specific journalistic bias in elections so that the considerable influence of papers like "Recorder" and televison companies like "Fox" can be lessened to some degree.

The Party of Commons opposes the "Max Baucus" health care bill which may be voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives this week. We support a "single payer" system or at least a public option, but this bill contains neither and would delay significant health care reform for at least a century. If the corrupt private health care insurers are actually opposing the bill, it is with a fox's smile, because they win with or without the bill, and their CEO's will get their multi-million dollar bonuses either way.

Initiative 1075

The Party of Commons is anxiously awaiting the language for the ballot title & summary from the Attorney General's Office for Initiative 1075, which is about election candidacy petitions. We are serious about getting this on the ballot in November, so please write to sign and circulate this petition once the ballot title comes out. This will be a grassroots effort to try to get a quarter of a million signatures in 3 months, and it won't be easy. This initiative will make it easier for common people to run for office and will probably put an end to all of the unopposed election contests in Washington. The initiative can be read in its entirety from the Washington Secretary of State's website (go to elections section and then initiative subsection, or click on the title link, above). We will greatly appreciate any help you can give us, including a contribution to Democracy In Election Process, P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.
