United States of Hypocrisy points finger at Vote Fraud in Ukraine
The hypocrisy in this country has finally reached astounding levels. Vote fraud in the Ukraine is the top news of the day. It turns out that the exit polls in the country which showed the challenger Mr Yushchenko leading 54 to 43 percent were completely overturned by the actual results of the election which gave the current prime minister, Mr Yanukovich, the win with 49.42 percent to 46.69 percent. This, of course, has raised the suspicion of vote fraud to everyone including the United States. Senator Richard Lugar, a friend of Senator Kerry, was a senior observer of the elections in Ukraine. He has stated that the incumbent Government helped rig the vote "It is now apparent that a concerted and forceful program of election-day fraud and abuse was enacted with either the leadership or cooperation of governmental authorities" The challenger, in the face of overt fraud and an election condemned as undemocratic by observers from the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe, is protesting the results. The Ukranian people have also risen to the occasion with protests of their own.
I know our media in censored, and our government corrupt....but this takes the cake. Here in the US, when our polls showed the opposite of the election results, our 'challenger' rolled over and said why don't we just shut up about it.
Our mainstream media has yet to cover this major issue with our own 'democracy'. At one point claims of vote fraud in the US hit the front page of google but was quickly buried. Our government officials and media go on pretending that Bush has a mandate. And yet, Senator Lugar, went to the Ukraine to make sure they had fair elections? I am stunned at the absurdity of this. What is he or anyone doing to ensure the American people that our elections weren't fraudulent? Shouldn't he and his good friend Senator Kerry, our entire government, be looking inward? Are our politicians and our media pundits really that blind that they cannot see their own hypocrisy or is it more they know when your are doing the pointing no one is looking at you? Of course it is already too late. The American people already know the truth about our fraudulent elections. Our governmental officials and media have been exposed as frauds as well. What we need now is the courage of the Ukrainian people who took it to the streets. We, the people must demand a democracy, the powers that be don't really give a damn.
"If this were a dictatorship it would be a heck of alot easier, as long as I am the dictator" George W Bush
Personally I am more inspired by this great man, who fought and died for our country. They might have taken him, but they cannot take his spirit and the gift he gave our country. His words are needed now more than ever!
"It is time for all people of conscience to call upon America, come back home, come home America. I call on Washington today, I call on every man and woman of good will all over America today, I call on the young men of America who must make a choice today. Take a stand on this issue, tomorrow may be too late. Come home America." -MLK
I am also so grateful for one of America's new heroes Eminem who has shown us the way with his new version of mosh. I suggest all Americans of conscience see this video and get yourself a black hood. See ya in the streets!
