Democracy in the US has been flushed down the toilet

"With absolute control of the election mechanism and the renewed Patriot Act, Democracy in the US has been flushed down the toilet.

With the US election system so well tied down (just ignore the inconvenient Congressman John Conyers Jr. comprehensive report Preserving Democracy: What Went Wrong in Ohio), there is NO WAY the Republicans can lose the 2006 or 2008 elections. Republicans in the House and Congress will have just to continue to stonewall the paper trail formula to ensure this. Republicans also have so many wonderful lapbitches and lapdogs, as Senate aspirant Katherine Harris and "anti-wiggers" like Ohio Governor aspirant Ken Blackwell, respectively, in place, that "total fairness" (like Fox's Fair and Balanced) of all US important elections is ensured.

Republicans will, however, have to ensure a fool-proof method that "dumb" Democrats do not find a way to hack into these rigged voting and counting machines!! Also, the need for the nonsensical exit polls for US elections has to be removed.

With so many co-operating Zell Miller type Democrat House and Senate members, who know they are otherwise toast, there is no way out of this beautifully engineered fascist scenario. The Democrats, except those who subscribe to Republican ideals of true fascism, such as Joe Biden of Delaware (of "I like you" fame) and Bill Nelson of Florida (remember his vote on the bankruptcy legislation), can now quietly say "bye, bye" to their chances of election or re-election!!

One should recall Rep. James Sensenbrenner's, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, remarkable performance, watched around the world on CSpan, when he unilaterally closed the Democrat convened Judiciary Committee proceedings? Do we need any better antic than that to know how true democracy should work?

All the world knows what a "wonderful democracy" is functioning in the US.

In today's Republican "democratic" world - conveniently "Yes" is "No" and "No is Yes". Does that distorted voice vote ruling by the House Speaker the other day in Congress ring a bell? It was indeed unfortunate that Randi Rhodes played it again and again on Air America Radio!!

Republicans have to be careful that there are not many "cry-babies"! in their midst, like Senator George V. Voinovich from Ohio, who have sudden but, luckily, short-lived pangs of a conscience. And the mistake of Senator Norm Coleman of allowing George Galloway to have a say directly to the American people is unforgiveable.

Remember how the Press Secretary Scott McClellan said the other day that the no convicted criminals would be allowed to serve in this Bush Administration. I do not know how to stop the count on all those who were convicted and then pardoned at the end of the Regan - former Bush era (this was an inconvenient blog entry Bush's Felon Job Placement Program by LondonYank) who are serving in and for this Administration!!

It is apparent that with this Administration, white is black - so that is why there is such an "overwhelming number" of Republican "black" representatives (100%) in the House and Senate - I am still counting!! An occasional casual and heartfelt apology (GOP: ‘We were wrong' to play racial politics: RNC apologizes for Nixon-era strategy and not courting blacks in the past) at the NAACP by Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman is sufficient to show the world how much the Republicans care for this "minority".

Of 3,643 Republicans serving in the state legislatures, only 44 are minorities, or 1.2 percent. In the Congress, with 274 of the 535 elected senators and representatives Republican, only five are minorities - three Cuban Americans from Florida, a Mexican American from Texas and a Native American senator originally elected as a Democrat. [NOTE FROM JOHN: That means the GOP has elected ZERO blacks to Congress.]

It is useful to have anti-wiggers as bloggers as Robert A. George RAGGED THOTS blog and, of course, as highly principled journalists, as Armstrong Williams. It is indeed unfortunate that the story about the absolutely professional behaviour of Mr. Williams was revealed (Education Dept. paid commentator to promote law.

The target now is to show that "Freedom is on the march" and to ensure that this new type of US Democracy is spread around the world!! (Sarcasm OFF)
