Hacking Democracy

It's interesting that even the documentary film narrator in Hacking Democracy calls the USA "the world's greatest democracy", and in the documentary so does John Kerry, who was shafted in the 2004 Presidential election. Old habits die hard, I guess, but I wonder if it's just habit that has too many of our American cousins parrot this favourite phrase, or if they have actually done a comparison of the world's democratic nations to reach their remarkable conclusion.

Be that as it may, this is a good video (thanks Baz le Tuff for getting me a copy) which may be downloaded in several parts via this link at Google Video/YouTube.

The keywords 'election fraud' will also find interesting and instructive videos about the Ohio voting scandal, and others. (BTW: RFK Jr sounds like Bobcat Goldthwaite.) See also Christopher Hitchens's article on the Ohio electoral fraud, and the Wikipedia article, 2004 United States presidential election controversy and irregularities. I know it's not new stuff, but it's still important and unresolved in The World's Greatest Democracy.

We in the Rest of The World (Less Democratic Nations) wait for something tangible and impeachable to come of all this.
