2012 Election Spectacle
1 September – 2 October 2012
As the 2012 "election" spectacle grinds into overdrive, one wonders, how horrific will the future that the elites are writing, and that most of us are obediently going along with, be? The choice seems to be between two criminals; one, Obama, already a hardened war criminal So-called voter ID laws, which, given the virtually non-existent bottom-up voter fraud, are little other than political instruments of legalized suppression of entire demographics of eligible voters, namely those unlikely to vote Republican, will potentially deny the votes, that is to say the basic rights, of millions of US citizens eligible to cast a ballot. "[T]hose with good intentions and blameless records who are barred from legally casting a ballot because they lack ID are not just being inconvenienced; they are being denied the right that defines democracy. Voting is so important to democracy's functioning as an equalizing force that it is the first thing those in power deny the minority and the last thing they grant. Campaigns for voter ID laws may have multiplied dramatically in recent years, but they are far from new. They are simply an innovation in a decades-long campaign to deny those at the margins – blacks, the poor, the disabled – the right to representation."
