I suggest those looking into working on layout and design look into Scribus.

Here’s something I’ve ben pointing out for quite a while now:
Pro-war Clinton candidacy success would mean same mob bosses have ruled U.S. since 1980
"Hillary Heralds 30 Year Plus Control Of America By Interlocking Crime Family"
Another Clinton in office would mean America being under the thiefdom of either a Bush or a Clinton for a total of at least 32 years, 36 if Hillary is re-elected (many now acknowledge that H.W. Bush pulled the strings as VP during the Reagan era)
Clinton voted for the Patriot Act and she voted for the war in Iraq, but so many Democrats are blinded by the cult of personality that they will overwhelmingly vote to put this crime family back in office.
Then again, we might just get an indefinite extention of Bush through martial law, precipitated by a war with Iran, Unless The Bush Crime family is impeached now, says Paul Craig Roberts.

It is now several days since President Bush announced an escalation in Iraq, and several days since word of the escalation has
been widely available. Many members of the Libertarian Party
are concerned at the apparent lack of response from the Libertarian Party to this dangerous and manifestly anti-freedom action on the part of the US government.
We believe that the war in Iraq and the growing American imperialism is one of the most significant issues – if not the most significant – of our time. We believe the Libertarian response to this war, and especially escalation, should be clear and unambiguous. We want to see the Libertarian Party at the forefront of this fateful issue – not lagging behind with weak and ineffective statements, but rather
pressing forward with bold and freedom-oriented proposals. The Libertarian Party should be an antiwar leader, not a follower. The Party should rally its members to protest the war and American
Therefore we beg you to consider issuing a position paper which takes the following strong antiwar positions:
- The US government should remove all American troops from Iraq immediately.
- The US government should have no role in determining how Iraqi oil revenues are distributed.
- The US government should immediately cease all embargoes everywhere.
The following members of the Libertarian Party are in agreement on the statement above and add their urgings for speedy and decisive action on your part.

MLL poster: Stop the Draft!
Bush wants a larger military. The Selective Service System is busy testing its draft machinery.
Don’t wait for an official re-launch of the draft. Begin fighting it now. And if you find it useful, feel free to use this poster I’ve created for the Movement of the Libertarian Left. You’ll find a fullsize, downloadable PDF of the poster right here.

The real issue in Bush’s speech Wednesday night is not the additional troops he intends to send to Iraq. The real issue is his nearly open proclamation of dictatorial powers.
Apparently, once a president lies a nation into war, he is entitled to absolute power for as long as he chooses. Regardless of how many Americans die or how many hundreds of thousands of foreigners are killed, the president’s prerogatives are sacred, at least as long as he recites the proper phrases regarding the spread of freedom and democracy. American voters made their will on Iraq clear at the polling booth last November. But they, like the Constitution and the federal statute book, don’t matter.
We have already heard from Bush or his lackeys about how the president is entitled to violate laws regarding wiretaps, renditions, torture, mail privacy, etc. The latest “surge” is just another example of how Bush rules by decree.
Will Bush, like other aspiring dictators, be able to cow opposition long enough to consolidate the powers he has seized?
And if the term dictator is offensive – then what is a better term for a politician who claims to be bound by no law or Constitution?
