Yep. I shoulda figured it out too- but the whole "It was on TV though!!!" mentality kicked in...*sigh* I think we're both just complacent. Heh.

You know, a lot of people have asked me how I could deal with living in China, the government and how they control the media, and this and the war coverage stuff is a perfect example. Most Americans just take what is seen on TV and believe it, and I think that we really can't trust it anymore, and it's really no different...

EXACTLY. We live in much less of a democracy than we tout our own horns for. What, you think it's your choice just because you put an 'X' on a piece of paper and shoved it in a cool-looking box? A) It's a secret ballot, you really don't know. The published vote counts could be pulled out of someone's ass. And B) it's called the American Electoral College, folks.

*nods*

Again, yes. I don't like this electoral college business. I don't understand...Gah. Anyway, I've been saying ever since I got back that I would much more live in a country where my freedom is 'limited', than live in one where only the illusion of freedom is there.

Bleergh... "Much less of a democracy than we toot our own horns for." "Much less of a democracy than we tout ourselves as."
