Growing Evidence Of Mass
By James Donahue
First it was Dennis Kucinich
and then John Edwards, two of the Democratic Party’s best choices for presidential competition, announcing decisions
to quit their campaigns. Before that it was Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson.
This means that the corporate
controlled media has scored a major victory in eliminating the party’s best shots at pushing the Republicans out of
What we have left are
the two lime-lighted warriors . . .battle-scarred Hillary Clinton and gentle-spoken Barack Obama . . . candidates who, although
both well qualified for the office, are fighting an uphill battle because neither of them fit the old established mold for
presidential fabric. If elected, Hillary would be the first woman president, and Obama the first black president. And it may
be wishful thinking to believe that either event is possible in this nation of bigoted constituency.
The people who really
run this nation understand the way people think and behave. Costly studies have been conducted by hired statisticians who
specialize in calculating just how the masses react when stimulated in subtle ways by not only crass television advertising
and slanted news reports, but from a variety of other information, often delivered in subliminal ways so that people
don’t realize they are being brainwashed.
Thus is was that men
with popular messages, but with ideas that roll harshly against the grain of the established corporate/capitalist system now
in power, have been quickly eliminated from among the contestants.
Notice, too, how the
popular votes in the presidential primaries already held have shifted between Obama and Clinton, constantly keeping them in
a running horse-race in front of the pack. Is this really the way voters in these early primaries cast their ballot, or has
there been some hanky-panky going on?
Consider what has been
occurring in New Hampshire, where Clinton surprised everyone
and recovered from the Obama victory one week earlier in Idaho.
Was that really what happened? Attempts to force a recount of the New Hampshire
ballots by hand counting, and setting aside the questionable electronic/computerized count on the Diebold machines, have been
Most people don’t
know about the New Hampshire recount issue because the national
media has totally ignored it. But a few enterprising Internet reporters . . . and especially the gang at Brad Blog, have remained
on top of it from the start. What they are discovering is that state officials are not only balking, but are pulling a few
shady tricks that are keeping reporters and ballot watchers constantly on their toes to make sure the recount . . . costing
some $60,000 to force . . . is done correctly and fairly.
The first phase of the
recount, financed by Dennis Kucinich, strangely halted after only one New Hampshire
county was completed. The official word was that Kucinich ran out of money. What Brad Blog investigators discovered, however,
was that there were so many “irregularities” uncovered in that county’s ballot count that it suggests state-wide
corruption designed to manipulate the outcome of the election.
The New Hampshire recount appears to be going forward, however, thanks to Albert Howard, a Republican
candidate, who plunked down the full $60,000 to assure that there were no more excuses.
The problem in all of
this is that our suspicions of election manipulation and corruption are unproven, and may remain so indefinitely, or at least
for long after it is too late for us to do anything about it. And after two terms under the most corrupt administration in
our nation’s history, it is vital that US voters get a fair chance this time around to elect a real leader . . . someone
capable of pulling us out of the mess that George W. Bush created during his time in office.
What frightens us about
what we are seeing is that we are thinking it possible that Mr. Bush wasn’t really as stupid as his actions made him
appear. We suspect that he was simply following orders during his years in the White House. And we fear that the next person
allowed to hold that office is going to do the very same thing.
Whoever it is that really
pulls the strings of the U.S. government
appears to like things just the way they are, and may be doing everything possible to keep them that way.
No terrorist organization
could do a better job of destroying this great nation, and do it so quickly and with as much skill.
