The Disloyal, and Unpatriotic, Display Fear of Democracy
Electoral-vote.com votemaster receiving hatemail, and threats from republicans - also has been repeatedly DDoSed in the last few days.

"I didn't want to discuss this, but I don't want anyone to think the problem was an incompetent hosting service. Just the opposite. The site has been subjected to a full-scale, well-organized, massive attack with the clear intention to bring it down. The attackers have tried repeatedly to break in, but the server is a rock-solid Linux system which has stood up to everything they threw at it and hasn't crashed since I got it in May. While our troops are fighting and dying to bring freedom of speech to the Iraqi people, there are forces in America who find this concept no longer applicable to America. I don't know who is behind this attack yet (although we are working it), but it is too professional to be some teenager working from a home PC. Given that all the hate mail and threats I get come entirely from Republicans, I can make an educated guess which side is trying to silence me, but I won't say. And I won't surrender to cyberterrorists."

"For the president to lecture me on fiscal discipline
is like Tony Soprano lecturing me on law and order."

John Kerry, Final Debate, October 13, 2004.

Current American polls on this last debate. . .

FOX - Kerry won = 62% (104,000 votes)
MSNBC - Kerry won = 70%
Newsday - Kerry won = 87%
AOL News - Kerry won = 60%

These are as of right after the debate, therefore just early results.  But it seems to be a national consensuses, as it was on the first two debates.

So someone please tell me - Why is it that 46% favor Bush, and as it seems by all indications, are in fact going to vote for him, even to their own detriment?

Had Enough Religious Bullshit?
A Collection of Articles, Quotations, and Cartoons For
Those Of Us Who Prefer Not To Live In A Theocracy.

"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country,
we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over
again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"
-- Rev. Jerry Falwell

"Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no
religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious
foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion
must be derived from faith.... We need believing people."
-- Adolf Hitler, April 26, 1933

To me personally, the most surreal aspect of all of this, is the fact that Americans as a whole, still act like this Bush administration is not a group of incredibly insane corporate born-again-bring-on-the-rapture ideologues, that are also a bit beyond criminally corrupt, whom are successfully destroying our Constitutional Democracy for their profit, and the rest of the world's detriment.
