commentary, philosophy, and outright rants

Tom Lehrer’s song that
“They’ve got to be protected
All their rights respected
‘Till somebody we like can be elected!”

continues to ring true today. The American Republican idea of spreading democracy throughout the world is to threaten the sovereignty of other nations if people vote against what American Republicans want them to do. According to National Public Radio:

“Voters in Nicaragua go to the polls Sunday, but observers and candidates are increasingly anxious about U.S. involvement in the election. Republican senators and the U.S. ambassador have been threatening reprisals against the nation if it elects former Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega.”
