"Fooled Again"

If you have C-Span 2, then you're aware they have a program called Book Notes where the authors are given a chance to talk about their book and answer questions. There was one today, Mark Crispin Miller; his book: Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election and Why They'll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them).

(quoted from the review of the show linked off C-Span website - but the link doesn't work anymore)
Miller argued that the outcome of the 2004 election, in many states including Ohio, was manipulated to favor George Bush and the Republican party. He discussed the evidence he has for this charge and talked about the reaction that Sen. John Kerry had when presented with the evidence. Professor Miller also argued that the Republican Party has been taken over by religious fundamentalists who see their opponents as evil and whose ultimate goal is to bring about Armageddon.

Of course we all know that the election was stolen. Why John Kerry caved in so quick is anybody's guess. But the last sentence of the review is where it's really at!! This guy zinged right in on something that my gut has been telling me all along. He was able to put it to word and it's so clear. It's the motivation!
Granted there has been voter cheating since the beginning of time, but this is more than just cheating. It's more than to get power, or corporate greed or oil. It's an agenda, a paranoid agenda of "We've got to get them before they get us" mentality. How can I explain it in a few words. The Right thinks the Left is total evil and in the mind of the Right, if the Left has any power, they will surely put all on a road of destruction and evil -- and so forth. This is paranoid thinking. So, they feel they MUST maintain the power, no matter what they have to do to "save" - who? - the world? - the nation?

He explained how this was the motivation in the Crusades and many other horrific conflicts throughout history, not allowing a view of differences of opinion to approach solving problems, but as an extreme "good versus evil" mentality. I know I'm not explaining this very well. I strongly suggest you read his book to get a good handle on this. He also said something about a plan to enact the Constitutional Restoration Act, which virtually would make any rulings from a court non-overturnable if they were ruled on by basis of the Bible! That is the real danger of the Supreme Court as it is being "stacked" - not so much the Roe-v-Wade. But even that, he said it's not so much that they are advocating right to life (which I am by the way) but no contraception, period! An extreme religion doctrine that they want to impose in their controlled world they're trying to build. Now I believe in the Bible, you can't get hardly two people to interpret the Bible the same way. He brought up Leviticus as an example I don't think we want to live by the guidelines as set out in Leviticus! This is far more serious than Republican and Democrat. We're all Americans. We are losing the very things we think we're fighting for.Well, my apologies for not being more articulate, but I hope I've given you at least a tangent on which to direct your own thinking. People have GOT to start looking at what is really happening. It's almost too late. It is sooooo dangerous for our beloved America that is being destroyed before our very eyes.

Before you declare this is all tin hat stuff, just read the book.

I've been saying this all along...that the race was rigged. How else can you explain 56 million people voting for Dubya when polls showed he was trailing? Yes, America needs to wake up and smell the burning...of our civil liberties and democracy as we know it!
