    What election???
  4. Nov 8, 2007 #3
    Recently, an election was held in the United States in an annual attempt to topple the government in the individual states. As usual, the attempt succeeded. And as usual, the government has succeeded in keeping this a secret from the electorate. But you have to get up pretty early in the afternoon to fool me. This poll has been closed and I am now ready to tablulate the results.

    Total number of voters: 1
    Total number of votes: 3

    1. Don't know 33%
    2. Don't care 33%
    3. Don't know and don't care 33%

    "Don't know", "Don't care" and "Don't know and don't care" swept the field with over 0 votes each. Unfortunately, since none of them garnered the requisite 50% + 1 a runoff poll will be necessary. Based on a challenge from supporters of "No comment", a recount was ordered. However, at the last minute the Supreme Court in a 2 to 1 decision ruled that it would "likely result in a better outcome and therefore was not desirable."

    As in the election itself, anyone who had anything at all to say expounded long and loud without actually voting. For all of Bush's attempts to destroy our liberty, this phenomenon remains the more dangerous challenge to our most demotic of cracies.
