Noam Chomsky by Ethics and Health Foundation
"In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a leading Vietnam War strategist, concludes that America's role in the war is based on decades of lies. He leaks 7,000 pages of top-secret documents to The New York Times, a daring act of conscience that leads directly to Watergate, President Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War." "Avram Noam Chomsky (/ˈnoʊm ˈtʃ-'mski/; born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher,[6][7] cognitive scientist, logician,[8][9] historian, political critic, and activist. He is an Institute Professor and Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT, where he has worked for over 50 years.[10] In addition to his work in linguistics, he has written on war, politics, and mass media, and is the author of over 100 books.[11] According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar from 1980 to 1992, and was the eighth most cited source overall.[12][13][14][15] He has been described as a prominent cultural figure, and he was voted the "world's top public intellectual" in a 2005 poll."

President Obama and his admistration may be a problematic choice for you as a Progressive voter. BUT... but Noam Chomsky and Daniel Elsberg are advising voting for President Obama if you are in a swing state because they say the alternative is unacceptable.
