For your next president

Making sure a candidate wins who supports our positions


For your next president
by nmilaninia

As the California primary comes closer, it is incumbent that our Iranian-American community come show up at the election polls and vote for a candidate which takes a stance against military confrontation with Iran. Unfortunately, many of the Republican and some Democratic candidates have not taken this position and continue to leave the military option on the table.

It is important for us as Iranian-Americans to vote in the California Primary, given that it is the state with the largest number of delegates and the state most likely to determine the next US President. The following will help you become eligible to vote so that you can make a difference this year.

In order to vote in the California primaries, there are only two things you need to do: 1) Register to vote and 2) Go to the polling place on election day and vote. Unless you are registered, however, you are ineligible to vote. This simple guide will tell you what you need to do in order to register:

1. In order to be eligible to vote, the registration must be postmarked no later than January 22, 2008. You can find the registration form to fill out and print by going here.

2. In order to vote for Republican candidates, you must identify yourself with the Republican Party in your registration application.

3. In order to register in the Democratic primary, you can identify yourself as a Democrat, Independent, or decline to state your party.

Once you have mailed out your registration form, you are eligible to vote on February 5th. All you need to do is go to the polling place for your county and fill out your ballot when you get there. Your polling place can be found here.

As a matter of California state law, employers are required to give employees paid time off to vote in any statewide election if the employee does not have sufficient time outside of the working hours to vote. This is to encourage voters to go out to the polls and vote. Voting hours are generally between 7am to 8pm. Mind you, employees can only receive a maximum of two hours paid time to vote and some companies require advance notice of additional time off is needed. This information can be found here.

Remember, by voting we can make sure that a candidate wins who supports our positions. But by staying at home, we allow others to dictate our fate.

Senator Obama is the most favorite President for Irano-americans. Because Obama will hold talks with Iran. Thje Islamic Republic of Iran has often enough emphasized that it is any time to negotiate with any body and is ready for unconditioned speeches. If Mr. Obama can win the chance for a face to face talk with iranians is allready conditioned by Iranians. Please acknowledge the following message:

Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama
Senator Barack Obama promises to hold direct talks with Iran and Syria in a bid to stabilize the Middle East if elected president.

In an interview with France's Paris Match, the Democratic presidential hopeful said he would also hold a summit with Muslim state leaders to address the growing gap between the West and the world of Islam.

The Illinois Senator added that to repair the image of the United States in the world he would have to 'put an end to the war in Iraq'.

"Occupying the country has put the odds against us with the world," Obama expounded.

The Democrat's campaign has been given a big boost as Senior Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy endorsed Obama on Monday.
Much success for Irano-americans by the next elections.

Dear Sir,

Is the "supposed confrontation" with Iran your litmus test for electing a candidate to office?

Are there not other issues that you would consider. Why do you call yourself an "Iranian-American"?

What is your stance regarding the deteriorating circumstances of the Iranian Regime, or the oppression of the people of Iran due to the rulers' finatical ideologies?

What do you offer to help change the conditions of these people?

Food for Thought

I agree with barefoot...

by Food for Thought on

...and check out my blog on this very subject:


Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich are the only two who are trustworthy human beings amongst those standing... 

Unfortunately, I also agree with the person who claims Clinton has already been chosen as the next president... Clintons and Bushes are tools of the Bilderbergers - those who run the world from behind the scenes... (google it...)

Primaries are a joke

by Ali (not verified) on

Primaries are nothing but a joke. Hillary will be the next president of United States, will govern and run this country for another 8 years before she will hand off the power to Jeb Bush.

Primaries are huge distraction president of US is already elected!


It will not be Obama

by Alborzi (not verified) on

The rednecks will come out of wood work. Israel will send
their crack assassins. Hillary has authorized the bombing of Iran and I will never vote for her and I do not care for anyone else.


Vote 2008!

by shahram (not verified) on

Let's take the vote seriously. Let's not make a mistake and put Bush's twin brother in the office. Good choices Obama, Hilley. Good Luck


There will be an emergency extension

by Alborzi (not verified) on

I think the fearless Bush will find the constitution gives him the right to extend his presidency as long as the war on terror continues. This will be reaffirmed 5-4 by the supreme court.


My vote goes to Nema Milaninia

I have been researching this issue. Obama belongs to a Trinity Christian Church in Chicago and his pastor, Rev. Wright, is against Israel and pro Islamic Groups. Obama's people are trying to hide this information so it must be correct.

Of all the candidates, I would guess that Obama is the most likely to be pro Iran and anti Israel.

In our Illinois Senate, Obama voted present 130 times and he started running for the US Presidency from day one in the US Senate. He was elected because of a sex scandal with the favored Republican Ryan, husband of the Star Trek Voyager actress Jeri Ryan, Seven of Nine.

In the US Senate, our Senator Obama had a record of not showing up for voting. So..... vote for the man I voted for during the last Illinois Senate election. I think he's on Iran's side, but there's no way to prove it.

Since the war with Iran is escalating, there is a little chance for the following candidates: Huckabee (a pastor was never a president), Romney (A Mormon), Thompson (least vote who is supposed to be the next Reagan), Obama (too late for campaign), and Hillary (her husband's reputation 10 years ago), etc. There is a new published book and is about the current Middle East Crisis and talks about Bush stealing the 2008 election from Clintons and in the U.S. Constitution, when we are in the middle of a propaganda, it is impossible to choose a new candidate.

It does not matter....!

The politics in U.S. has become extremely corrupt. The congress and the White House are for sale to the highest bidders and the corporations call the shots.
Iranians have to take care of their own mess in Iran and get rid of the regime themselves. No foreign power will come to rescue for free...
Having said that the Republicans have a better record on Iran. Don't forget that the Mullah's regime was a gift from Carter administration...


Huckabee got your vote????

by Bored Iranian dude (not verified) on

Are you focking crazy?? Why the fock dont you just go back to Iran and vote for the Mullahs, its the same shait!


Huckabee has my vote.
