Beside Themselves with Anger
My inbox is increasingly full of frantic pleas for help:

I have to agree with the statement, "Even Democrat strategists concede that 'if we can't win in this environment, we have to question the whole premise of the party.'" Only I might change the words "the party" to "the American political system." Frankly, if the Republicans triumph in this climate, we could well be looking at a future of one-party rule of the sort Japan or Mexico had for decades. And that's putting it mildly. Those conspiracy theorists sometimes get on my nerves, but the fact that the name "Diebold" contains the word Dieb does give me pause.

A one party system with the power invested in those in political office is THIS country just sounds like a recipe for a 1984-type world. All the necessary technology is already in place. Next!

I agree. It scares me in my bones. Brave New World. 1984. Pretty soon we'll all be wearing Malthusian Belts and putting sheets over our television screens (wait--that might not be so bad). I know my partner (Green Card) always thinks someone is watching him!

I couldn't agree more. It scares the ____ out of me.

If you join the TASK FORCE, do you get an UZI?

I'd imagine so!
