ABOUT REPUBLICANS STEALING ELECTIONS

I do not need to stress the importance to the Democrats and to the Obama-Biden campaign the fact that REPUBLICANS STEAL ELECTIONS! They stole the election in 2000 from Vice President Al Gore in the state of Florida, they stole the election from Senator John Kerry in 2004 in the state of Ohio. There are various ways that they use: subliminal programming, falsifying poll numbers, voter suppression and programming for backwards counting on the election machines. Oh, the fate of so many in the hands of so few.

The Republicans LIE.  We won’t know the full extent of the Bush-Cheney lies for sometime to come. Has anyone ever seen someone as clandestine and arrogant as Dick Cheney?  Bush and Cheney sacked the nation while Rome was burning.  Brand new  investigations will be launched, stalled and sealed. I am not even talking about  Governor Palin’s “Troopergate.” I understand that the McCain camp has taken over the governance of Alaska. Smells like an oil and gas takeover. I am sure that the good people of Alaska will not be happy with the pittance from energy revenues that they will get under the banner of “Country First.”

As Alaskan’s strongest act of political protest, they should start by throwing their three electorial votes away from the McCain-Palin ticket. That would be a cruel irony, indeed, for the “most popular governor in the United States.” Why did Sarah Palin forsake the people who elected her, anyway?  I suspect that it might have something to do with the “bridges to nowhere” that she burned and the enemies that she has made along the way.  Whatever is she going to do about her “ole buddy” Senator Ted Stevens?  Will she leave him out to dry after all of the favors she has asked him for over the years? I feel the need for a character study, don’t you?

This time, the Democrats need to use every means necessary to ensure that this election is not stolen. Everything hangs in the balance. To those sitting on the fence while Rome burns, vote your pocket books, because if you don’t watch your pockets-they will continue to be picked. Do not vote for looks, legs or lies vote for your own interests.  Ask yourself this question: “if you were about to be put out into the street, or your kids were going to have to live with you in a car that you can’t afford gas for, will your church make sure that you have a roof over your head? Will your church make sure that your children get to eat what they used to eat while you faithfully tithed there? Will your church make sure that you have the gas money to drive to another state where a relative could help you and your children? Will your church help get you back on your feet again?” If the answer is yes, I would listen to the pastor of such a church, because the social gospels have become living epistles. If the answer is no, leave behind robotics, religiosity and racism. CHECK YOUR POCKETS!
