Lessons In Democracy

I thought this might be the only blog in the world that had no comments on the Election in the USA, but this report in Boing Boing finally prompted me to vent my spleen. The fact that children who declared themselves to be Kerry supporters at a school visited by the President were being threatened with expulsion speaks volumes about Democracy According to Bush.

It is frightening to think that this dangerous lunatic will probably be re-elected the Most Powerful Man on the Planet. How can anyone support him when he stoops to desperate tactics like these?

Bush claims he sent troops into Iraq to give that country democracy, but this story is but one small example of how his political machine tries to stifle democratic debate at home.
