75. You think we have "free elections" --- ???? ROFL
...and have free elections. So what you mean is 'We are anti-worker.'

Things are the way they are because people in sufficient numbers either want them that way, or don't want them to be different, or don't want them to be different enough.

This government was not forced upon us by an occupying power. It would be more convenient if that were the case, but it wouldn't actually be true.

Americans are not "anti-worker" -- this is a liberal nation -- which still supports the

New Deal -- and even more radical solutions.

Americans have been abused by corporate control of our government and our press --

which denies many the information and vision which they need to understand our problems and

what is causing them and how to fix them. One example of that is the Postal Service and

the depeptive political attack on our PO Department and its workers to destroy it for the

benefit of elites/privatization.

Same is also true of our military and its privatization -- Patriot Act/Homeland Security!

In fact, our Congress has been privatized if you look at it realistically -- privatized

with corporate money buying government and candidates/incumbents.

"Congress is controlled by the oil and coal industry" -- Al Gore/Rolling Stone-June 2011

Further, we've had 50 years of RW political violence -- assassinations -- which not only

took President John F. Kennedy but our people's government!

Add to that a corporate press -- and corporate/private voting computers which are hackable

even from remote locations -- and it adds up to stolen elections not "free elections."

And the Supreme Court's Gang of 5 decision which put Bush in the White Hous eis even more

evidence of fascism in America.

PS: --

Keep in mind, also, that the voting computers aren't something new in 2000 --

they began to come in during the late 1960's. In fact, two journalists in 1969 noting the

odd and unverifiable results being reported by computers began an investigation which resulted

in their book -- "Votescam -- The Stealing of America."

Additionally, during the mid 1960's, the LARGE computers used by MSM came in giving them new

powers to PERDICT and CALL elections -- winners/losers -- Electoral College Votes, etal.

Previously they had only been permitted to report ACTUAL VOTE TALLIES.
