What makes me angriest: that there is no outcry against election fraud; that the media have become pure political instruments; that our “educational system” has produced an ignorant electorate.
Ahh, yes, the ‘youth’ vote. Saw them on CNN last night. Well, anyway, this ‘youth’ thinks a bit differently. Hopefully you US guys have had enough time to see through Obama, time Aussies didn’t really get – and not helped by the Oz media either, which is substantially Leftist. Ditto?
Let’s hope not.
Never before has the ignorance of the electorate been so intensely cultivated as in this election. We all know that major publications and broadcasters have simply refused to report news, and what they did report was spun politically. And among the stories they are not reporting, is the massive electoral fraud, from the “where is all that money coming from?” to the “how dare state officials refuse to verify the identity of voters?” one, to the refusal to report, day by day, on Joe Biden’s scandalously inept, incompetent, and often meretricious campaign. Instead, they obsess on every real and imagined misstatement by Sarah Palin, who for me has been the most attractive of the four candidates.
American exceptionalism rests upon independent thinking, pride in community and heritage, and disdain for ivory tower intellectuals combined with admiration for self-help and achievement. My greatest fear is that these values are going to be trashed over and over again the next few years, and we will have to fight it very fiercely.
Seems so. There’ll still be lots to do come Wednesday, no matter which way the cookie crumbles.
