THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS | 2004-12-04
Many people voted for Bush because they couldn't stand the thought of Kerry getting in, which is an understandable reaction. But if every election comes down to a choice between the lesser of two evils (which is the way it has been in America for the past several decades), what separates us from the Communists?
No more democratic constitution was ever written than Stalin's Soviet Constitution of 1936. Every Soviet Republic was given the right to secede. Freedom of speech was guaranteed. Everybody voted in every election. In all the thousands of elections held in Communist countries there was not one case in which less than 99% of the voters turned out.
North Korea once had an election in which it claimed a 100% turnout!
In the Communist systems, people were allowed to choose between two candidates, two APPROVED candidates.
Did they really have a choice?
