Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
We didn't elect Bush, THE CURATOR. Gore got more votes than Bush. The US Supreme Court intervened in that election and the result is that the US has a president who lost the popular vote. It's a big mistake to think that the US is a democracy these days. It is not. It's a hegemonic kleptocracy.

And now, this year, with all of the questions about the fallibility of the voting machines and how easy it is to tamper with them, many of us don't have very high hopes for a legitimate election this time, either. Of course, even if Kerry is elected this time around, it will be because someone with a lot of money and a vested interest in certain outcomes will have made that possible, and he will also be owned by huge, money and power hungry corporations, just as Bush is.
