  •  Could it be.. (none)
    that the Dems know the election was stolen and are afraid that if it comes out it will tear the nation apart? So for the sake of preserving the Union they want to put this election behind them and perhaps hold any evidence they have over the heads of the Repugs the next four years? Maybe swap it for a Supreme Court judge?

    There's so much silence from all parties all I'm left to do is speculate. And if my speculation is correct, it will actually make me feel a little bit better knowing the Dems might actually be in a position of some power, and BushCo are left somewhat impotent and having to deal with their own mess.

    That is of course provided they clean up the election process for 2006 and beyond.

    •  Interesting thought (none)
      And one I've had myself recently. I do believe everyone (MSM, Dems, etc.) are scared shitless that this election was stolen too. It means we no longer live in a democracy... and the implications are huge... can you imagine what it would do to the morale of the troops if they were to learn that their beloved and trusted Commander in Chief stole two elections and sent them to die in a war that was based on lies?? What would happen in every minority community around this country if the "truth" came out?

      I'm sensing anarchy.

    •  too late (none)
      torn apart?

      we are already there.  the press/GOP loves the quaint red/blue state dichotomy, a nice complement to black and white vision of the thugs in office.  as long as we let them frame our lives, we'll never get the picture.

      the burden of actual thought is what makes being a liberal so hard

      •  Until things are on fire (none)
        and the streets are covered with broken glass, we're not "already there."

        I'm not condoning the notion, mind you. It would be a far, far better thing if the U.S. dealt with reality before we reach that point.

      •  I'm talking (none)
        TORN apart like riots in the streets, major conflicts in the military hirarchy.

        What if Bush refuted the evidence and refused to leave? What athority would/could force him?

        These are the potential issues we'd be facing.

        If they cheated they broke the law, and personally I think you have to stand by the rule of law no matter the consiquence short term or otherwise to our democracy.
