To the Editor:
Bush is always prattling on about democracy and freedom, but he is profoundly anti-democracy and anti-freedom. Bush & Co. have stolen two U. S. Presidential elections. Abroad, Bush has overthrown the democracy of Haiti, having kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and taken him to a remote location in central Africa. In place of democracy in Haiti, Bush has installed gangs run by death-squad leaders and other common thugs. In Afghanistan, his CIA-sponsored puppet has recently been "elected" in a rigged election. In his illegal criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq, Bush is trying to set up a string permanent U. S. military bases and create a corporate puppet dictatoship to his business buddies to steal Iraq's vast oil reserves.
In terms of freedom, Bush & Co., with the assistance Attorney General John Ashcroft, are dismantling the Bill of Rights of the U. S. Constitution as fast as they can. Since 9-11, Bush has asserted that he possesses dictatorial powers and that he can order the indefinite lockup of any American citizen on the grounds that such persons pose an alleged terror threat. Torture, kidnapping and murder are common tools of the Bush regime outside of the U. S. borders.
To reclaim our democracy from the death-grip of the Bush gang, we first need to have our votes counted openly and publicly, not to have them "counted" by hackable insecure proprietary secret software owned and operated by right-wing-supporting corporations such as Diebold, ES&S, Sequoia and SAIC. We must demand the immediate creation of auditable paper trails for all electronic computerized voting machines. Before the next federal election in 2006, we need to return to traditional hand-counted paper ballots and real American democracy.
The January 6th joint session of Congress to approve the selections of the Electoral College will be the last good public chance to openly and publicly discuss the massive election fraud in Ohio and elsewhere in the nation. Please call or write to the remaining forty-five Democratic Senators and urge them to take a gutsy stand and challenge this fraudulent election and demand a revote with hand-counted paper ballots in Ohio. If they can revote in the Ukraine, we can revote in Ohio.
Who knows, maybe if some Representatives and Senators can talk and talk and thus delay the recrowning of King Bush, maybe we can get our democracy back before it is too late.
