Evil GOP Bastards
Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans? 

It can only be
because they're...

Evil GOP Bastard of the Month
Henry Kissinger
Nixon Co-conspirator
Since we're seeing so many Iran-Contra retreads in the Bush II administration, Kissin-
ger's appointment to chair the 9/11 inves-
tigation should come as
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of oligarchic and corporate interests and absolutist religious groups. 
Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

no surprise. Kissinger has so much blood on his hands from SE Asia to Latin Amer-
ica that
Clarence Page suggests Kissinger should be the object, rather than the chair-
man, of an investigation.  Who next from Bush II? Gordon Liddy as head of the FBI?

Are Americans too dumb
for democracy?

To describe the results of the
2002 mid-term elections, Demo-
cratic prankster and unsuccessful
post-Watergate congressional
candidate Dick Tuck's memorable
concession speech comes to mind:
"The people have spoken… the
bastards!"

Well apparently, the people have
spoken again; rewarding the
Republican Party with firm control
of all three branches of the federal
government.  However, it's curious
that the electorate would reward
the GOP with political approval
since their policies have resulted
in a stock market crash (and near
universal decline in retirement
401ks), higher deficits, higher
medical and educational costs,
record bankruptcies, and higher
unemployment rates -- not to
mention bringing us to the brink
of a questionable war with Iraq.

There seems to be an intellectual
disconnect between issues
affecting the lower and middle
classes, and how they vote (if one
can believe in the integrity of the
vote-counting process -- more on
that later).  As illustrated by a New
York Times
poll (free registration
required), American voters seem
to vote for Republican candidates
while preferring Democrat policies.
For instance: 66% of the respon-
dents said they'd prefer federal surpluses be dedicated to support-
ing Social Security and Medicaid
rather than tax cuts; wide majorities
wanted greater environmental and
business regulation; 60% believed
the Bush tax cuts only helped the
rich.

How can we explain this discre-
pancy? One obvious explanation would be that the Republicans have decisively won the propaganda war,
with thousands of right-wing "propa-
ganda-for-profit" radio talk shows, and scads of richly endowed  "think tanks" and foundations to craft effective propaganda and develop rent-a-pundits to deliver their message.

Liberals\Progressives\Moderates\
Independents have no analogous
political infrastructure. 

Major media has also been an effective tool for the right, with GOP
talking points immediately assim-
ilated by the slavish stenographers
of the so-called "liberal media,"
which would be much more accu-
rately described as "corporate
media."    

Even with this vast array of prop-
aganda assailing the average voter,
can the "Big Lie" still succeed in
convincing voters to vote counter to
their own interests?  Maybe, maybe
not.  The truth is we don't really
know for sure -- not in the era of
electronic voting.

Who's counting those paperless
electronic votes?

Having used the new "paperless"
ballot in the mid-term elections last
November, I was immediately struck
by the fact that there was no hard-
copy generated during the process.
Click the big VOTE display and your
ballot disappears into the ether of
cyberspace.

Being as suspicious of the motives
and methods of the Republican
Party as would be expected of the
webmaster of a site named
evilGOPbastards, I was concerned.
Seeing as how the GOP stooped to
the most blatant form of election-
theft in the 2000 presidential elec-
tions, the ability to fix an election
without the existence of those
pesky "physical" ballots would be
highly desirable to the shadowy
win-at-all-costs operatives of the RNC.

Where do those electronic votes go and how are they tabulated, and most important, how is the integrity of the process guaranteed?  This was a question that I asked (via email) of the DNC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee -- all of whom failed to reply to my inquiry.

It may come as a surprise that the companies providing electronic voting systems consider their computer code that tabulates e-votes a proprietary "trade secret" and as such cannot be independently evaluated or verified.  Combine that with the complete absence of exit-poll data during the last election and one is left with the nagging suspicion: did they steal it again?  

Readers who are skeptical of the potential for election fraud should visit the
Votewatch website, or see Bev Harris' excellent reportage on the scary far-right ownership of one of the largest electronic voting equipment suppliers (and their legal maneuvers to silence her), as well as other well-docu-
mented electronic voting problems.

As Crispin Hall of the Canberra Times noted,  "Democracy is more in the counting of the votes than the casting of them."  With electronic voting, the potential for electoral skullduggery is very real.  Congress should prohibit electronic voting unless it is augmented with a hard copy verifying the ballot with the thumbprint of the citizen casting the vote.  Until this is done, we cannot have full faith in our electoral system.

Bizarre verbal quirks reveal interesting clues
to Bush's psychology
(disturbing)
Mark Crispin Miller, author of Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder (about President Bush's bizarre verbal gaffes) notes that while Bush usually mangles any utterance concerning ideals or middle-class interests, when he's beating his chest with bellicose threats, the message comes out just fine.
