‘Defeat Romney, Without Illusions About Obama’, Daniel Ellsberg

‘Daniel Ellsberg is a former State and Defense Department official who has been arrested for acts of non-violent civil disobedience over eighty times, initially for copying and releasing the top secret Pentagon Papers, for which he faced 115 years in prison. Living in a non-swing state, he does not intend to vote for President Obama.’ Here, agreeing with the approach of Noam Chomsky, this hero of our times provides principled and well-reasoned guidance on how progressives should appreciate the big issues at stake, and exercise their voting choice, on November 6, 2012.–defeat-romney-without-illusions-about-obama
