I'm  not sure I follow you here, Jose.  Are you saying that abstentionism is
by definition racist, ultraleft idiocy?  Are you *disagreeing* that
exposures around this election should focus on the denial of a so-called
"right" rather than Gore being "cheated of his victory"?  Do you think it's
going to far to suggest that this whole fiasco has usefully demonstrated the
*demonstrative* rather than democratic foundations of the U.S. electoral

As to whether the American working class -- chocolate, vanilla, or
pistachio -- gets what it "deserves" ... is this a moral question or a
historical question?  Either way, I'm sure you'd agree the answer probably
turns or more than our voting behavior.
