enigma's post on voting at the sirens
my heart grows heavy when i think of my fellow americans having a part in all of this. the idea that so many in so many states didn't count votes; destroyed ballets; turned people away; knowingly introduced diebold machines.
willingly subverted democracy.
this wasn't brought about by foreign terrorists and i fail to see any difference between this 'domestic terrorism' and the folks who drove planes into tall buildings. these are the same people who claim to love america and flaunt the flag as if they are the only patriots around. these are the same people who claim to want to save america's 'way of life'- but what does that mean? if you are taking part in the dismantling of the constitution- how is that preserving america? the sheer number of people who must be involved in this movement staggers and disheartens me. if that many people want to see the end of democracy, how can we continue to call ourselves america?
