Well, There It Is Lads and Gents....The Glorious American Democratic Elections!

by D. Burbeck Saturday, Jan. 08, 2005 at 8:23 AM
dburbeck@650dialup.com

And we should export this to the rest of the world?

What a fine display of the people's will in electing the American

Government. That was just BEAUTIFUL....wasn't it? This time

it boiled down to a man (Kenneth Blackwell) that committed

felony acts of voter repression for his candidate, and he has not

even been charged with the crime. In the 2000 election it came

down to a woman named Katherine Harris who did the same

thing in Florida, and she was never charged with a crime either.

Rather she was elected (somehow) to the House of Representatives

in an act of gratitude by the same vote manipulating system. Now,

with electronic voting machines, it's a cinch!

Yes, we have democratic elections.....tell the world how wonderful

they are. Let's topple governments so as to give this wonderous gift

to the people of the world.

It's funny that the Iraqi people are showing the incredible resistance

that we've seen. They must not understand what a glorious thing it

can be when one single criminal can turn an election for a presidential

candidate.......and get away with it. What more could they want? What

more could they ask for? It actually doesn't make sense that they are

resisting our plans for their future government.

No more coup d'etats....no more civil wars....no more people's

uprisings. It is the dictators dream come true! They can be placed

in power without a single objection.....well, if there is an objection

like happened in Congress today, it is a simple matter of calling

all of them loonies and wiping it away from reality with the help

of the corporate media. It is soooo sweet!

We should all write to our Senators and Representatives and

congratulate them on carrying out this snow job over the American

public. The people are actually buying this as legit, believe it or not.

What an excellent piece of work. Give the people a few channels of

24/7 sports and a remote control, and they are pacified like a baby

with a fake nipple in their mouths. What a remarkable thing. They

don't care to know what is happening, and the major media is doing

their best to keep them in their dream sleep. It works so well, it is

truly hard to fathom the trouble the U. S. is having in Iraq.

It is actually an incredible thing of beauty. Even a massive

movement by the voters can be washed away with a few clicks

on a home computer. Do you see what a technological breakthrough

this is in government? Could it possibly be any easier?

And to keep the facade standing, a simple denunciation of the

vote fraud in the Ukrain, and a call for a new election is all that

it takes to buffalo the people into thinking that things are fine at home.

It doesn't get any better.....it can't possibly get any better than this, unless

you could beam something into the brains of the people that would make

them have no interest in politics......like maybe massive amounts of sports

and sex.

Give credit where credit is due! This didn't come about overnight. They

have been working on this for years.... decades. It's pure genius....and it

looks as though they are going to get away with it....AGAIN!

America is a nation where breaking it's laws is now rewarded. Did Michael

Milken or Ivan Boesky or Carl Icon or any of the junk bond thieves stop

doing financial crimes? They were slapped on the wrist (if that) and are

still out there causing great harm to the financial markets. You may

remember the 4,300 off shore accounts that Enron stashed their billions

of post-deregulation dollars into. These are the guys that were likely

working with Fastow. But that money is out of the reach of the courts.

The litigation in the Enron fiasco is focused on the number crunching

before deregualation, when they had to lie about their profits.

It's the wild, wild west....boys and girls......because no one is fighting

back (with the exception of Eliot Spitzer and his remarkable team).

That has allot to do with the fact that the public is not being given

the truth by the corporate media, but the truth is out there on the web.

They are leaving it up to each citizen to find the truth if they want it.

The truth is not going to be given to you anymore. You are going

to have to find it for yourself (cause it aint very pretty). But your

mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa may refuse spending an hour

or two a day to find the truth because they don't want to do anything

that a "nerd" would do......see the beauty of it?
