WHAT WENT WRONG?
THE NUMBERS TELL A STORY
The Majority Did Not Vote For Bush
Roughly FORTY per cent of the total electorate did not vote, for anybody. TWENTY-NINE per cent of the total electorate voted, AGAINST Bush. Even Bush only claims he got THIRTY-ONE per cent of the total electorate. Fifty-nine million for the Shrub, out of a total population of two hundred and ninety-four million. 59,000,000 out of 209,000,000, over the age of 18. Call that a mandate?
A mandate to do what? Invade Iran? Attack North Korea? Ignore what's going on in Israel and Palestine? Have some more militay confrontations with the Chinese? Continue our occupation of Iraq, indefinitely? Let Osama go on with his campaign of terror?
How about at home? Appoint extreme right-wing activist judges? Outlaw abortion? Anti-gay amendments to the Constitution? "Patriot" Acts 3 & 4? No real homeland security? No national health care? No money for public education? Continue trashing the environment? Do nothing about global warming? More tax give-aways to the rich? Bankrupt Social Security? Recession? Unemployment?
Bush has no mandate. The election results are unverifiable. Electronic voting machines are easily rigged, and leave no paper trail. Many of the machines were supplied or programmed, controlled or tabulated by avowed Bush supporters, leaders in his local & State campaign & Party organizations. There was no full, fair and verifiable count of ALL the votes. Therefore, we have no President.
Don't let the Republicans tell you any different. Don't let the Media tell you any different. Don't let your dotty Aunt Tilly tell you any different. There is a massive effort here to rewrite reality. We're all supposed to forget the voter intimidation; the unlawful disenfranchisement of millions of voters; the insecurity and uncheckability of voting machines; the things we all saw and heard with our own eyes and ears. Remember what Winston Smith's job was in 1984: Re-writing history. Don't let them get away with it.
