More Election Fraud

"A concerted and forceful program of election-day fraud and abuse was enacted with either the leadership or cooperation of governmental authorities."
SENATOR RICHARD G. LUGAR, on the Ukraine elections.

I had to do a double take at the above quote because I thought he was talking about the United States elections. But no, it was elections in the Ukraine that are seriously questioned by the people of that country and apparently at least one senator in this country.

News out of the Ukraine is that 200,000 people and more have taken to the streets in bitter cold to protest their elections. It's too bad Americans don't have that angry drive to do the same. Two hundred thousand in a country the size of the Ukraine would be more like 1 or 2 million people in this country, and that is the size of the protest on the first day, it could grow.

Judging by the Internet websites detailing the various frauds and questionable election tabulations I would bet that millions of Americans would love to assemble together and protest our election. But America being such a large acreage of a nation tends to dampen the ability of making protests large enough to get noticed. Travel and timing of an event make it difficult for a huge mass crowd to quickly assemble. And many small protests throughout the country usually doesn't get enough of the media's attention.

There have been some small protests about our election in several states. I would bet few people even know that. So the news about the Ukraine protests about a fraudulent election makes it into the American national media, but not the protests IN America about our own election. Something is wrong about this picture.

Denver, CO protests of our election...
