The other thing to consider is that the Repugs own the voting machines
and the servers upon which the vote is tallied. Another thing to
consider is that the Repugs eliminated Paul Wellstone. They've known
how to jam aircraft instruments for years. My ex-brother in law knew
how to do it. They eliminated the guy in Missouri who ran against the
Christian thug Attorney General that the current shameless sycophant
replaced. All they need is bad weather to cover the hit. Then there
are the threats. When they asked Al Gore, "How are you going to protect
your family?", he ran like a scalded dog. Did you see him gavel down
the Florida representatives who tried to protest the vote in 2000? It
was as bizarre a scene as I've witnessed. Why didn't he take their case
himself? Only one Senator had to do it (and not a chickenshit one of
them would do it) if the Florida delegation was to get around the
rip-off the Repugs did. On AlterNet the other day, someone speculated
that we've already had a military coup and they're slowly filling all
the critical job slots in the government. Has some merit, I think. I
thought it was against the law for an active military person to be the
director of the CIA. Guess not.
The fact is, we, the people, have not elected Dubya to a single term of
office. How do we square that with the damage he's done? The
Constitution is shredded, the environment is ravaged, the largest
transfer of wealth on record went to the richest of the socioeconomic
top 1%, the US infrastructure is in rags, poverty is worse than it's
been since the New Deal, and the smirking little bastard is still at
it. Who benefits?
Barack and/or Hillary could really win. Whoever hogs the middle wins in
the US. The Repugs succeeded in moving the middle to the right, but it
didn't last. My Congressman, Lloyd Doggett, is the single sweetest
human being in all of DC, but he won't take a stand against Nancy Pelosi
and sign on to impeach Cheney after Dennis Kucinich introduced the
legislation, even though Cheney is running an active and
unconstitutional war against Iran out of his office with the old
IranContra hands. The real terrorists are here, in the US, and they
hold power, and they hold the country hostage.
