Glad I stopped by before heading off to bed. Thanx for the excellent link. Although I am not a US citizen, I'd like to get behind that initiative. I hink it's somehow in line with the US original credo of no taxation without representation. And since the way the only remaining superpower is governed effects us all - even over here in old Europe - I think we all should have a say in it. Now thinking about it, I actually think we should call for being put on the voters' lists next time. And then I am willing to authorize my government over here to spend my tax-bucks on clearing up after the mess King George leaves all around the globe.

A great idea by these folks, Pops... but I get the feeling that it won't even get a stitch of media coverage. Frustrating.

Silly Adventures,
Thanks for the offer of letting your tax $$ to be used to take care of the mess that Preznit Numb-Nutz leaves behind...but I feel that all those who have backed him, and lied for him, and got the huge tax breaks should be paying for the clean-up along with Bush out of his own pocket.

Even if all of Europe could vote for presidential candidates here, I'm sure that Diebold would still skew the election. Hey, it was a very nice offer anyway.

Econ,
It may not get any MSM coverage, but it just might be enough to shake the dust off some more of those in Washington who's heads are still in the sand.
