This a good article why the republicans are not only clueless about what democracy is, but are actively hostile to it’s true intent. In the article Demeaning Democracy Mr. Kennedy describes the republicans in exactly the same terms as I’ve used in past posting here.
Cheney and his crowd are all for free and open elections – as long as they turn out their way. They are all for free speech – provided it supports the administration.
And I’m glad that other people can see as clearly as I, what despicable langers the republicans are.
