Harper's on What Went Wrong in Ohio

Dig this.

Then, go out and buy (or read at your local library) the cover story in the August issue, "None Dare Call It Stolen: Ohio, the Election, and America's Servile Press."

If you disagree with this article, and with the Conyers report you can find here (PDF), I should think the onus is on you to tell me why this shouldn't be investigated, if only to rectify and explain what seem to be a concerted effort not only to influence the voting process in Ohio, but also not to report on this unbelievably juicy story by the mainstream media.

I'm not suggesting a conspiracy. It's all out in the open; it's worse.

Now, if you accept this report, exactly what name do you give our current polity? I should think "republican democracy" is out of the question, given that this is now the second stolen election in a row.

Harper's is the only mainstream news outlet bothering to push this issue. The Libertarian/Green parties' suit is stalled; Ken Blackwell is the GOP frontrunner for governor of Ohio.

I only wish I could post the entire article, but it's not available online. If it becomes so, I'll post it. Otherwise, drop $6.50 or make a trip to your local library to read this article. This applies to Allen and his cohorts as well -- no conservative can be happy about this and be worthy of the label. This is a radical coup d'etat which no amenable policy or policies can redeem. Were this the Democrats' doing, you'd hear the same from me -- you'll just have to trust me on that one. This is above and beyond party, faction, or policy preference -- it gets to the heart of our system of government...and fleshes out one of the many reasons I am inclined to call our present political system "protofascist," if not "fascist."

One thing is for sure, future historians will look on these two elections, and the domestic and international policy mayhem that followed them, as either the end of the republic, a la Caesar's crossing of the Rubicon, or the beginning of the Glorious New American Empire, depending on whether this coup d'etat stands or falls. Most evidence points to its standing, sadly.
