Across the US the right failed to advance it's regressive agenda. 

In Maine, same day voter registration was passed, revoking the banning of it by the Republican legislature. 

In Mississippi a bizarre attempt to force newly created embryos to be treated as persons-- a law that would have put in vitro fertilization as a practice at risk-- was solidly defeated. 

In Ohio, reviled governor Kasich's law to end collective bargaining was repealed.

In Arizona, Russell Pearce, the architect of the extreme anti-immigrant legislation that so many in the nation have reviled was voted out of office in a recall election. He is the first sitting senate president in the nation to be recalled. 

But in Virginia, Republicans virtually took control of the house and senate, only the second time since the civil war. That's not a good sign for the coming US senate race to replace retiring Senator James Webb.

It's a small but significant victory. Missoula Voters Say Corporations Are Not People, Demand Constitutional Amendment. It was non-binding, but with a 75% win, a sign of what might be expected if such an issue was voted on nation-wide. 





Still, a lot of right wingers won elections. The American people are still REALLY pissed at the Democrats, but, apparently, they are also unwilling to accept the legislation that sellout legislators have passed to support the one percent. 


 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
