For many months prior to the year 2000 Presidential Election, I mentioned on various radio talk shows, that we may not have an election in the usual manner. Those who called in to the programs, asked "What do you mean? Emergency proclamations? What?" I simply answered we may be surprised.
George W. Bush was installed as the resident and occupant of the Oval Office by the strangest means. A military style Junta of 5 persons on the U.S. Supreme Court installed him. In the process, they said that their ruling on the 14th Amendment's guarantee of Equal Protection of the Laws is NOT to be a precedent in any other case, which was a great oddity.
This is being written and posted two weeks before the year 2002 Congressional Elections. Like for the 2000 Presidential Election, I have stated on various radio talk shows that we may not have an Election in 2002, in the manner that we ordinary Americans have become accustomed to.
