In September, Greg Palast told Razorcake readers how the Republicans stole the 2000 election. As Palast’s latest report shows, they’re doing it again.
But that’s not all. Most of the corporate media has done a great job of sweeping the election under the rug, saying, “It’s over. It worked well. There’s nothing more to see here.” It couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m all for timely election results, but many things don’t sit well with me, especially Kerry’s giving in so quickly when Bush doesn’t officially get a second term until the electors from the Electoral College go to Washington D.C on December 12th.
If you’re looking for dissenting views, here are some timely links that will hopefully help start a critical thinking process about Nov. 2nd’s election and what it’ll mean in the next four years and beyond.
Remember, you are not alone. All is not lost. It just may feel like it at times. Arm yourself with as much information as possible.
Thanks to Chris Pepus and Sara Isett for help with the links.
