Subject: The Florida & Ohio ELECTION FRAUD...
... this is SERIOUS, and it's FRAUD!
The 2 pivotal States which swung the U.S. 2004 election for Bush
were in fact HIJACKED: "Blackwell supervised the Ohio vote...
he also served as co-chair of the Ohio Bush-Cheney re-election campaign,
a clear conflict of interest..."
on Ohio voting put 2004 election in doubt: by Bob Fitrakis &
Harvey Wasserman (freepress.org)
... and Jeb Bush, the GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA, is the President's LITTLE
BROTHER for god's sake, and was a major player, (carefully fronted
by Katherine Harris in order to keep his hands clean,) in the 2000
HIJACKING of the presidential election:
Report "Unexplained Discrepancy" in FLA Vote Totals (BuzzFlash)
Given everything that we now know, who among the intelligent thinkers
on this planet hasn't yet connected the dots, after reading STORY
UPON STORY of massive voting irregularities on November 2nd??
These are NOT mere SNAFU's or coincidences, this is a WIDESPREAD
CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT FRAUD!!!! (*yes, gasp! I've used the dreaded
Rove and Company may well get away with this despicable travesty
of justice & democracy if the American sheeple simply do as
they're told and "move on"... (*speaking of which: where
IS "Moveon.org" at this crucial time?? Oddly silent...)
Folks, this ain't "over" till the fat lady sings on Dec.
3rd. Save your country & your democracy. SPREAD THE WORD.
Thank you, BUZZFLASH, for providing this indispensable public forum.

Subject: Karl Rove
Everyone should read the book "Bush's Brain." Because oddly
enough Bush's Brain is Karl Rove. The man that will stop at nothing
to win and he has won. He will do anything it takes to get what he wants
and still to this day he is the mastermind behind the Bush Administration.
If we all begin to understand and look at Karl Rove and his techniques
maybe then we can move forward to get back to Democracy.
You can get the book at your local library. I suggest strongly that
you read it and then think about what I have said.
Subject: National unity
Let me say, first off, that I have a great fondness for Bill Clinton
now, and always have had. I've been one of his most ardent supporters
from the get-go and through thick and thin. What's more, I yearn for
national unity too, right along with him. But the kind of national
unity which both of us fondly envision presupposes an opposition which
operates on the rational, not the limbic, level.
Given the nature of this animal which is our opposition, we must,
for now, forego any chimeric pipe dream of national unity, because
this animal will not ever be working toward this admirable goal, but,
instead, always at cross purposes to this goal - i. e., always in
pursuit of what it perceives to be its own narrow self-interest. The
only realistic option we have in dealing with this animal is to keep
the pressure relentlessly on and to keep it always on the defensive
- otherwise it will devour us piecemeal. Every time we let our guard
down, it will sucker punch us yet again, and advance its Gulagian
agenda just a little bit more each time, until it has everything it
wants, and we're left with nothing.
Come to think of it, I believe that Bill Clinton, in his heart of
hearts, really understands this "real world" context in
which we find ourselves. I would suspect that all this talk about
national unity is intended for public consumption, to make us look
noble, which we are, of course, compared to the opposition - but we're
not stupid. So, we will continue to profess our commitment to national
unity, which we do truly believe in, but in the full knowledge that
the opposition has no time for any such thing. The only thing that
they understand is zero-sum. I'm sure an astute politician like Bill
Clinton "gets it."
The "loyal" opposition is single-minded about implementing
its agenda of greed - be it by hook or by crook. As long as it is
motivated by blind avarice, there is no hope of reaching any rational
accommodation. Given this "real world" context, we have
no choice but to fight it tooth and toenail every step, nay, every
inch of the way. May God grant us the strength to prevail.

Subject: Greenspan Warning
The persistence of bloated trade deficits over time can pose
a risk to the US economy, Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the
Federal Reserve, warned today....
The reductions in the massive red ink of the Bush administration
will result in drastic cuts in spending affecting all but the
tax cuts for the wealthy.

Subject: Democratic party incompetence
The Bush administration just floated a trial balloon which proposed
to pay for large tax cuts for rich people with tax increases (by
way of eliminating deductions for state and local taxes) on the
Bush also proposed eliminating the tax deduction to businesses for
providing health insurance to their employees.
Plans Tax Code Overhaul (Washington Post)
Yet, the Democrats aren't all screeching at the top of their lungs
that Bush wants to raise taxes on the middle class, and take away
their health insurance coverage.
It doesn't matter what the specifics are. THEY SHOULD BE SAYING
THIS 24-7 UNTIL BUSH CRIES!
It's exactly the type of demagoguery the GOP would pull against
a President Kerry.
Yet, we barely whimpered about it.
If we want to win elections, we have to start playing hardball.
And I don't mean the Chris "Tweety" Matthews variety.
Subject: Stop Fox News from going to Canada
The Canadian Radio & Television Commission is about to rule
on whether or not to allow Fox News to broadcast north of the border.

Subject: It's NOT the message, stupid!
Why is the obvious so hard for some people to see? What is it going
to take to get these professional politicians to grow a spine and
stand up for themselves for once? The democrats can forget about
changing or fine tuning their message. They can forget about getting
out the vote. It won't make a hill of beans worth of difference
from here on out. Anyone who believes that any election after this
point will reflect true voter sentiments, or even be in the ball
park, is a fool. The fix is in. Bev Harris is a patriotic and courageous
woman, and I worry for her safety. People could go to prison for
what she's uncovering.
The repugs have hackers on the payroll. What the dems need now are
better hackers on the payroll. It's turned into a game of who can
keep the loyalty of the best criminals. Precinct by precinct, the
killed democracy with a thousand little cuts. And, don't think for
a minute that the big media bozos don't know what happened. The
mainstream press is well aware of the shocking degree of fraud that
occurred in the 2004 elections, and it's going to protect the Bush
dynasty at all costs. The press has betrayed each and every citizen
by not reporting on all of the voting "irregularities"
and investigating them. It's lost my trust completely. From now
on, I'll get my news EXCLUSIVELY from overseas outlets and internet
sites like this.
The democrats are running around like chickens with their heads
cut off, wondering what went wrong with their message. They're fools.
They've bought into the biggest con of all. Nothing was wrong with
their message. The people voted overwhelmingly for Kerry. How can
they be so stupid that they can't see what is plain to see?
Psychologists must be in heaven. They have one of the largest experiments
in self-deception, denial and groupthink in the history of the world
going on right under their noses.

Subject: We Need Show and Tell in US Government . . .
Homeland Security Employees Required to Sign Secrecy Pledge . .
Well, isn't secrecy one of the main causes of all the deaths on
911? Bush and Rice, Bush's devoted one, knew at least a month before
911 and chose not to tell anyone . . . other than those Republicans
who did not fly commercial airlines after they were warned . . .
Ashcroft for one. Then there are the suicides and deaths in Guantanamo,
also Bush's secrets, and add everything else this administration
has done . . . all hush, hush . . . secrets and lies. Secrets and
lies mean one thing . . . corruption and illegalities. Passivity
of the Congress, well placed partisan judges, plus our laws, make
it too easy to defraud the American people and our Democracy through
Government works only when it recognizes that it works for Americans
. . . Bush and his administration work for us . . . they don't have
the right to their secrecy . . . laws that protect criminals should
be abolished and any law that protects those guilty of crimes against
the American people who are supposed to be trusted with our government,
should be exposed and brought to justice and pay a "higher
price" than those American citizens in our prisons today serving
time for their crime.
America is more than a corporation. Will somebody break the news
to the Republicans that they do not own this Country . . . when
do we demand that this administration learn how to run a government
. . . take a class in show and tell . . . do the work of a real
government and not their own interpretation of it?
