"Independents Circumvent The Threshold"
The headline above is not one you would find on any American front page…but it very well could be if the American people would start facing realty.

From almost halfway around the world the story begins:

“The forces of history hit Turkey with two fists in yesterday's general elections: First the landslide Justice and Development Party (AKP) victory and then scores of “independent” candidates who managed to get into Parliament.”

The thing that struck me (besides the two fists mentioned above) was the “scores of independents who managed to get into Parliament.”
Taking a line from former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts, “Americans are being brainwashed.” He also said on a recent radio show, “We’re really not very bright.”
Combined those two quotes with the media controlled direction of the current election charade in America you can sum them up into one word, “turkey” (as in stupid as a turkey).
Yes, indeed, the American voters are stupid! If they were smart and could really face reality then we might see scores of independents managing to get into Washington.
As we continue with the story from the Turkish Daily News:
“This wave of independent candidates is a first in Turkish history and testifies to an undeniable fact: The 10 percent national threshold in the election system is unsustainable. Indeed, if the threshold was 5 percent – or less, as in many European countries – the Democrat Party (DP), which got 5.39 percent of the vote, or even the Young Party (GP) with 3 percent, would have been represented in Parliament. In a country with more than 42 million voters, the total votes for these two parties amount to nearly 1.9 million. And that amounts to a population almost exactly equal to Slovenia's that have been disenfranchised, left without parliamentary representation. That alone gives an idea on the limits of Turkish democracy. ”
Now if only American would wake up, the headlines of tomorrow would be a re-print from Turkey, “The Democratic Party got 5.39 percent of the vote!”

Op-Ed: Yes, The President Did Lie

Note: Crossed Posted From Digital Journal - Author:Snooper

As most know, there have been allegations that the President of the United States lied and thousands died. I am now of that same mindset and here is why. The country was misled and the man should be impeached. For what, I have no idea.

As far as I know, there is no law against lying except for perjury in a court of law or legal depositions or when filling out fraudulent police reports.
I am saddened by this development but, it is what it is and if any President lied like this, who then, can be trusted. Where did he get his information from and what did he know and when did he know it? What was the motivation? Where was the use of force authorization? Were was the "declared war" by Congress?
Yes indeed. America was led down the primrose path of self-destruction and the only way out is to apologize to the world, destroy our Founding Documents and shred the United States Constitution and adapt the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto and fully implement the same. President Bill Clinton should be either behind bars or in political exile at the moment using the same "logic" of the alleged anti-war organizations. But, that is neither here nor there. The point is, President Clinton did not lie and neither did President Bush. If President Bush lied, so did President Clinton and so did the leaders of both Administrations as can be seen in this video here.

The Iraq War Resolution seems to be set aside because it is too hurtful for the Democrat Party Leadership to admit that their whole ruse of "Bush lied" in 2006 and 2007 was for political gain and political gain only. This is why in 2008, the War In Iraq is a political non-issue.
For Barak Obama to declare that the war was wrong from the start shows his inability to protect this country from foreign enemies…he cannot protect us from domestic enemies either because by his very Marxist ways, he is a domestic enemy of the Constitution of the United States. Is it any wonder that the Iranian Regime endorses Obama?
The very few instances that the War In Iraq gets brought up in debates or Sunday News Shows, the issue is quickly, as soon as possible, set aside and the topic is changed. Why are the Democrat aspirants to the White House so terribly afraid of the subject? And, why do they invent more issues, such as "recession", to distract from the War In Iraq which was just all so important last year and the year before that?
And what change do they wish to bring to the USA? Did they not run on that very platform prior to the last election? They want to bring more of the same? No thanks. We have seen their definition of change and it was rejected time and again last year. Only the easily led and the over emotional can be swayed by such double-talk.
Hopefully, this election, the rational will arise to the occasion and defeat the Party of Defeatism and Marxism...the Socialist Democrat Party. Who are the "liars" here? Americans would also like to know why the War In Iraq is not a campaign issue...now.
