    As in the last two ‘elections’, voting and election advertizing fraud (see today’s issue of Daily Kos about the illegal use of the Emergency Broadcast System to air a Republican candidate’s political ad in CA) has reached incredibly new heights (orlows)- the questions is, what will the American people do about it?  Remain asleep at the wheel - trusting the “Daddy-state” to take care of us -or will we finally take back the reins of government and use it as it was intended - to make the lives of ALL Americans better, not just a handful of elite and their campaign contributors.  Sure hope so.

    The GOP is guilty of not just election molest, but TREASON. Six years of it, all one banana
    republic, bush family production.
