a journalist has had a column on the 2004 U.S. election blocked from being printed in the Chicago Tribune: http://www.rense.com/general65/susb.htm... this is just the latest challenge to alternative media, and those sections of the blogosphere that are seeking the truth... this is so because it is simply one more area that if it does not break into mainstream coverage will be only found in alternative media and the blogosphere... the challenge to these groups will be to enlighten as many uninformed people as possible on this issue as is already the case for so many other issues...

the U.S. presidential election is often compared to a horserace, but a horserace is a poor metaphor for a presidential election... a horserace is a poor metaphor because of the great power that the executive branch of the U.S. excercises... does anyone think we would be talking about privatizing social security with a president Kerry or Gore?

a horserace differs from an election in that you know you've lost that race and your money's gone or you know you have won and you collect your winnings... you can race again seconds or minutes later and the loss or gain of money at the previous moment is the only consequence... at the end of an election, however, the direction of one's country either goes in a benevolent or malevolent direction for the term of a given politician (particularly the most powerful one)... the next racing opportunity is quite far in the future... this is what the mainstream media either misapprehends or understands but is to close and compromised by the throne of power to do anything about... the stolen election of 2004 and the media blackout of it is a high crime of the most serious degree...
