Greg Palast: How McCain Could Win

How McCain Could Win
Monday 03 November 2008
by: Greg Palast, t r u t h o u t | Perspective

It’s November 5 and the nation is in shock. Media blame it on the “Bradley effect”: Americans supposedly turned into Klansmen inside the voting booth, and Barack Obama turned up with 6 million votes less than calculated from the exit polls. Florida came in for McCain and so did Indiana. Colorado, despite the Democrats’ Rocky Mountain high after the Denver convention, stayed surprisingly Red. New Mexico, a state where Anglos are a minority, went McCain by 300 votes, as did Virginia.

Un bon show ne fait pas une démocratie

Posted by seumasach on October 30, 2008

“Ainsi, non seulement les citoyens ne choisissent pas leurs dirigeants, mais ce sont les dirigeants qui choisissent leurs électeurs.”

Les médias des États membres de l’OTAN accordent une très large couverture de l’élection présidentielle US. Ce faisant, ils transmettent un double message : l’avenir des peuples alliés se joue à Washington, et les États-Unis sont un modèle démocratique. Or, il est admis que l’élection présidentielle US est faussée par l’argent. L’édition 2008 a déjà coûté plus 1,5 milliards de dollars. Cependant cette critique est superficielle en ce qu’elle laisse croire que les moyens financiers font le vainqueur, alors que c’est peut-être l’inverse : l’argent va au vainqueur préalablement désigné. En réalité, remarque Thierry Meyssan, la classe dirigeante US manipule chaque étape du processus électoral, des primaires aux conventions, des listes électorales aux machines à voter. Aux États-Unis, la démocratie est une pure fiction.
