How many times over the last century have we heard this...each time we are told to go with the Democratic lesser evil in order to block a devil incarnate....we vote for a lesser evil and then we get what we voted for...
There is an old union concept that maybe should be repopulatized in the United States of North Anerica -- don't vote for your boss, don't scab at the ballot box. It is better to vote for what you want and not get it, that vote for what you really don't want, and get it.

That is far better than what we have right now in the White House! We all realize that the day of jubilation will not have arrived if Dean--or even Kucinich, whom I support--is elected president. It's important to know that, but it's surely no surprise, especially to Vermonters, despite deceptive media portrayals of Dean as a leftist.
> But what should we do about it? To me it seems obvious that no matter who the Democratic nominee is, reasonable patriotic people must work to remove George W Bush and his gang of thieves and warmongers from the White House. We are losing what we still have of democracy (small "d") and civil liberties, and it's vital to get those guys out of office. THEN we can criticise the conservative new president and work for change. There will be plenty to do, to be sure, but at least we'll still be free to try to do it!
