12. What gave me that impression is when you said
"So for Republicans the 2000 and 2004 elections aren't so much the end of democracy as we know it--which has always been crooked--but payback for 1960". In other words, for Republicans what we have now isn't so bad, so maybe we should look at it from that point of view.

I take you at your word though that you didn't mean it like that, that like you say in your last post, you feel that the integrity of the electoral process is probably the most important issue facing any democracy.

But I made a number of points in my last post, other than whether the 1960 election was really stolen, that I feel makes the 2004 election and what we are facing now much more crucial to the survival of democracy in our country than what we faced in 1960. Do you have an opinion on that?
