Letter to the Editor

Defense Secretary Rumsfield doesn’t like the outcome of the Iranian elections where the winning candidate won in a landslide getting 60% of the vote. Rumsfield called it a mock election complaining that the 8 candidates they had to choose from were somehow fixed.

Here in the USA we don’t have 8 candidates to choose from. We have only 2 which are chosen by political insiders. We had Skull and Bones man Bush vs. Skull and Bones man Kerry, with the electronic voting machines under the control of the Republican party. Bush won the previous election only because the Republican controlled Supreme Court stopped the vote count and illegally declared Bush the winner. This election was won by rigging voting machines in Florida to swap the totals in Democrat dominated counties in Florida.

So it seems to me that we are hardly in a position to criticize the outcome of Iran’s elections. But Rummy would have to make that claim because he is moving to invade Iran next. Who would have thought we would see the day when Iran had freer elections than America?

There is no real democracy in this country – we are a REPUBLIC. We do not elect our highest “elected” official, we vote for others who vote for HIM, if they want to, ultimately, and their choices are dictated by political/business elites.

Get ready for President Arnold Schwarzenegger. And a third term for Bush. He might not be “elected” right away, but once the Constitution is changed to allow it, he’ll be back in again. On the other hand, what difference does it make really? He’s just the front man for corporations. There are 2 political parties, both are BUSINESS parties folks. Who represents YOU? You do, and you can say and do whatever you want as long as it doesn’t effect the bottom line.
