After decades of broken politics in Washington, eight years of failed policies from George Bush, and twenty--one months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are one week away from change in America.

In one week, you can turn the page on policies that have put the greed and irresponsibility of Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street.

In one week, you can choose policies that invest in our middle--class, create new jobs, and grow this economy from the bottom--up so that everyone has a chance to succeed; from the CEO to the secretary and the janitor; from the factory owner to the men and women who work on its floor.

In one week, you can put an end to the politics that would divide a nation just to win an election; that tries to pit region against region, city against town, Republican against Democrat; that asks us to fear at a time when we need hope.

In one week, at this defining moment in history, you can give this country the change we need.

We began this journey in the depths of winter nearly two years ago, on the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Back then, we didn't have much money or many endorsements. We weren't given much of a chance by the polls or the pundits, and we knew how steep our climb would be.

Every Ohioan considering how to vote should consider two things: (1) the GOP, from its very presidential candidate all the way down, has absolutely hammered on the claim that "ACORN" and other boogeymen have rigged the current election, while (2) there is this chilling story (told here by one of the United States' most prominent election law experts, Rick Hasen of Loyola LA Law School) explaining how this whole alleged problem has been essentially fabricated, and how the fabricators are themselves top GOP operatives with close ties to the Bush administration and the McCain campaign:


Do we seriously want to let these crooks keep running this country?
