In this week's editorial, The Lone Star Iconoclast -- the newspaper of Crawford, Texas -- writes:
"As 2005 emerges, it will be interesting to see just how many freedoms will be robbed from Americans this year. .... Investigations into the presidential vote in Ohio have revealed that the election was compromised in a major way, eliminating any possibility that the election was fair. On Jan. 6, the government has an opportunity to right this wrong to democracy by refusing to certify the Ohio electors. That will be a red-letter day in history, for its ramifications are deep.
"Our question is “Will Congress act to save democracy?” Our guess is “Probably not.” The conventional wisdom in Washington is that the people do not deserve a fair election; only reassuring propaganda."
