4. You think so, kster? I think you may be right. A paradigm shift.
I've been thinking it will be a long hard slog to get back our right to vote. But so many things are happening all at once that point to the illegitimacy of the Bush Junta, that it becomes only a short step to seriously question how they kept power in 2004, and if you look into it, even superficially, the fraudulence of the vote counting system--its inherent fraudulence--its GLARING fraudulence--is apparent.

I've been following events in South America--and of course, I gravitate to information about the voting system. And I was amazed to find out that Venezuela, which has an open source code electronic system, handcounts FIFTY-FIVE PERCENT of the ballots, as a check against machine fraud. 55%!

While we who are inflicted with Bushite-controlled "trade secret" vote counting handcount ZERO percent, in some states, and a lousy 1% in the best states.

And our beloved Democratic leaders in Congress are proposing 2%. (--I presume because they don't want to get dis-elected by Diebold and ES&S, or they like Bush's war, or...?)

BUT....the times they are a-changin', as that great old '60s bard used to sing.

You been catching what's going on in Colombia? It turns out all the top people of Bush's big bud there, President Uribe--the head of the Colombian military, the former intelligence chief, and a bunch of congresscritters and others--have been involved with rightwing paramilitaries, major drug trafficking, mass murder, and a plot to assassinate Hugo Chavez. This is a military (and associated paramilitaries) upon which the Bush Junta has larded billions of our taxpayer dollars.

I don't know if you noticed, but Bush got publicly lectured by Latin American leaders, from Brazil to Mexico, on the SOVEREIGNTY of Latin American countries--in his recent jaunt--and completely failed in his "divide and conquer" mission. Something's up with this. I think the Bushites are stinky on this rightwing paramilitary connection in Colombia and its dreadful crimes and plots.

So, when I found your post this evening, I was thinking, yeah, something's different. Something in the wind. And it could all just suddenly...CHANGE. Even "trade secret" vote counting. Change like, people thinking "How could it ever have been?" Change like the '60s, when...suddenly, it seemed...war didn't make any sense any more. Why have war?
