A Government Hijacked

Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election & Why They’ll Steal the Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them)

By Mark Crispin Miller
Reviewed by William E. Betz

There is no joy in this book. It documents in excruciating detail overwhelming evidence of the broad-ranging election fraud that took place in the United States in connection with the 2004 national election. Unfortunately, the reaction of the typical na•ve American to the fact that the election was stolen by the right-wing Republicans who are currently in power in this country has been an insistent disbelief. The indisputable facts have been either roundly disputed or assiduously ignored by the mainstream print and broadcast media, and the proponents of this ugliest of truths have been relegated to the status of tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists.

The subject of this book is self-marginalizing. It utterly destroys the reflexive “It can’t happen here” response of those of us who refuse to believe that it HAS happened here. I say “those of us” because acknowledgement of the basic premise of the book is the most revolutionary of thoughts for anyone who has learned to believe in the sanctity of our electoral system, and the basic premise is extremely painful to admit in spite of the overwhelming proof: Our government has been hijacked by undemocratic forces that manipulated election results to reinstall the Bush administration, an illegitimate administration initially installed by a Supreme Court decision that invalidated the results of the 2000 election, an administration dedicated to world domination and the destruction of American democracy, the U.S. Constitution and the individual rights that made this country the envy of striving people throughout the world.

  • Very well written.

    On a poetic note:

    I’ll take your evil wind
    And give it right back to ya
    Hungry buzzards are waiting
    On the grey fence of ignorance
    It’s a classic case
    They obfuscate
    A brainwashed populace

    Screaming crows and sirens
    A normal world is crying
    Bright bird of redemption
    Winged truth with eyes of fire
    One more fool
    Divide and rule
    A brainwashed populace

    You dance around the questions
    Cause the answers you must hide
    You crept into this dimension
    Now be lost through all time
    It’s a classic case
    They obfuscate
    A brainwashed populace

  • Well said. That’s exactly what I’ve been trying to tell people for years…but will they listen to me? NO! Sheesh, no one listens to the pretty girl who happens to have a brain…

  • Haha…doesn’t have as much to do with it as you may think.

    It’s like Jack Nicholson and Dennis Hopper talking about “freedom” in the movie “Easy Rider;” everyone wants it and prefers to believe their life is rich with an abundance of it, but generally, when those who are deluded as to their perception of freedom and existence actually encounter a free-thinking person, they fear the freedom that person exemplifies, loath it.

    It reveals to them how imprisoned they are by common belief structures that are largely a systematic, societal imposition which benefit specific, repressive views and sublimated emotions. When such people encounter others not likewise afflicted, it makes them nervous, and that makes them dangerous.
