Political promises are nothing more than a fig leaf to fool the new evil empire's "voters" into thinking that their votes matter.
It's truly beyond my comprehension that anyone is concerned about the possibility that the 2008 general election in the US might be stolen, or for that matter, cancelled.
Such actions are unnecessary, because just about all of the candidates who might dare to represent the public interest have already been weeded out.
No election is free unless:
1. Votes are by affidavit, on PAPER, with a PEN, so that every vote can be counted and recounted.
2. Winning an election requires a majority, not merely a plurality.
3. "None of the above" is on the ballot for every race, even when a candidate is unopposed. If "None of the above" wins, then new elections must be held that exclude all candidates who were on the previous ballot.
