political party by county

No More Republicans In Power.

None. Not one.

The interests of humanity will not be served so long as there is a single elected member of the Republican Party holding political office in any city in any county in any state in the United States. They must be voted out.

America cannot afford American conservatism anymore. Earth cannot afford American Republicans anymore. The Republican Party of the United States of America is the single most dangerous organization to human life and well-being on this planet.

Look at what they have done from the height of global power and influence. Look at what they continue to do. Look at what goals they aspire to make real. They damage us, and have damaged us, and will continue to damage us so long as they have the capacity to do so for their own personal wealth.

Elected Republicans stand athwart history, yelling for progress to stop. They do no work which does not kill or destroy or pollute or limit or shrink or withdraw. They are absent in their civic duties, absent in their responsibility, and have the supreme selfishness to call it a virtue.

They are the proverbial missing nail in the horseshoe, for want of which the rider is lost. We cannot afford their deliberate emptiness any longer.

Each and every member of the Republican Party must be voted out of power, until none remain.

None. Not one.

A fairly simple concept, here are the results of the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election by county, colored by population and which political party carried that county. Numbers are in total votes so as to give a good idea of where overall numbers of voters are, not just the population of voters of the winning party in each county. Alaska, with results not available on a per borough basis, has its results sorted by the total population of the boroughs rather than voting population. I hope you all enjoy and are able to get a good idea of voter concentration throughout the United States.

November 15th 1998: Stokely Carmichael dies

On this day in 1998, civil rights leader Stokely Carmichael died aged 57. Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago in 1941, Carmichael moved to the United States when he was eleven. An intelligent youth, Carmichael was admitted to the prestigious Bronx High School, where the majority of his classmates were wealthy white teenagers. Acutely aware of the racial injustices of American society, Carmichael joined the Civil Rights Movement upon seeing footage of a sit-in on television. After graduating high school in 1960, Carmichael studied philosophy at Howard University in Washington D.C., but still participated in freedom rides; he was jailed for 49 days in Jackson, Mississippi for entering a ‘whites only’ bus stop. In 1964, he joined the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee and became an effective field organiser charged with registering black voters in the Deep South. While working in Lowndes County, Alabama, Carmichael founded his own political party, choosing a black panther as its logo. Despite initially adhering to Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent philosophy, Carmichael became frustrated with the slow progress of the movement, and upon becoming national chairman of SNCC in May 1966 rejected the group’s white members. In October, Carmichael made the speech for which he is best remembered - his defiant ‘Black Power’ address at University of California, Berkeley. The phrase quickly became a rallying cry for younger, more radical activists who advocated black separatism instead of the nonviolent doctrine of racial integration. This new approach was exemplified by the Blank Panther party, which Carmichael became the leader of in 1967, arguing for black nationalism and pan-Africanism. It was in the pursuit of this latter cause that Carmichael spent the rest of his life in Conakry, Guinea, changing his name to Kwame Toure. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1985, and died in 1998.

“We been saying freedom for six years and we ain’t got nothing. What we gonna start saying now is Black Power!”
