You think America is a democracy? There is strong evidence (as yet to be convincingly refuted) that Bush did not win in Florida (and thus is an illegitimate President). The 2002 elections were equally dubious. http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/1013-01.htm Of course, the suspect elections discussed in the Common Dreams article are just a couple of the many suspicious elections held in 2002.
If you are like me, and know that democracy is on the ropes, you might be pleased to know that the House is trying to do something about it.
If we're going to have a fair election in 2004, we can't just sit on our butts! HR2239 needs your help. It won't pass if we remain silent. You can learn a bit more about it, and can volunteer to help at this website: http://www.verifiedvoting.org/
Also, you can help bring this to the attention of MoveOn by placing your vote here (and then having your family and friends vote):
MoveOn worked wonders in standing up to the FCC, and it can do the same here.
This may do nothing to kill corporate influence, but it's a start--there is no democracy if our votes do not count.
